Kassy Dillon, founder of Lone Conservative, describes herself as a healthy young person and says she is not afraid of going out.

"I still follow most of the rules," she tells One News Now. "I wear a mask; I keep my distance from people. But this new lockdown of all the restaurants, even from operating outside, is ridiculous, and it's really hurting businesses here."

Dillon says people do not know how to navigate the situation.

"They've spent thousands of dollars on plexiglass and following all these rules, and now they're being told that they can't even serve guests outside for three weeks," she continues. "It's insane to me, and I will be supporting the businesses who are defying it."

Dillon submits that people are not rebelling; they are surviving.

"This is their only source of income, and you're closing down their business, not giving them resources, and expecting them to just move on," she explains. "That's just not the way it works. And a lot of these business owners are not only worried about themselves, they're worried about the people that they're supporting."

Governor Gavin Newsom (D-California) is facing a recall. While COVID-19 is one of the issues for some residents, Politico reports the Newsom administration has faced growing criticism for unemployment benefits fraud – including payments to inmates – and little progress on reopening schools.

"There has been a big effort in California, particularly over the summer, to recall Governor Newsom," Dillon acknowledges. "You'll see people tabling outside of Walmart; I've seen people tabling outside of churches."

And while she does not think this "big effort" will go anywhere, "because in reality, this is California," she says what people are doing right now "just shows how interesting our political landscape has become because of this pandemic."
