Unlike Democratic governors across the country, Missouri's Republican governor knows he has no authority to mandate or regulate who goes in and out of private homes.

Instead of virtue signaling or abusing government authority, like New York's Andrew Cuomo or California's Gavin Newsom, Parson is simply offering guidance and relying on Americans to make their own decisions.

Meanwhile, California just banned eating outside for three weeks. Pennsylvania just barred the sale of alcohol after 5 pm the day before Thanksgiving. New Jersey has implemented a curfew. New York has imposed capacity limits on private gatherings, which some local Sheriffs are refusing to enforce.
