- Coronavirus is a potentially deadly virus.
- 7.5 million Americans have been infected.
- 210k+ Americans have died from it.
- Our government used it to take away our inalienable rights – in particular:
- To work and enjoy the fruits of one’s labor.
- To move freely within the country or to another country.
- To worship or refrain from worshipping within a freely-chosen religion.
- To think freely.
- Only 6% of the reported COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. are solely attributable to coronavirus.
- We quarantined and closed the country to “slow the spread.”
- We did not quarantine and close the country to eradicate the virus.
- We quarantined for months and still got sick.
- We opened the country, and we’re still getting sick.
- We were told masks wouldn’t help. We got sick.
- We are told we must wear a mask, or we won’t be allowed in the store/bank/restaurant/gym/insert name of any business here. We’re still getting sick.
- We know more about the virus now than we did eight months ago – which means it’s no longer something we don’t know anything about.
- We know who is more vulnerable to complications, should they get the virus.
- We know who is more vulnerable, by age, should they get the virus.
- The media, the critics, and the debate moderators say this is the most critical issue, and it’s on the top of everyone’s minds. The political spin is that this will make or break President Trump’s re-election.
In summary, whether we stay in our homes or go outside, we can get sick. Whether we wear a mask or not, we can get sick. We know if we have a compromised immune system or any disease/health challenge, we’re more at risk. If we’re 65+ in age or older, we’re more at risk. We know we cannot completely rid the world from this virus now that it is here.
So why are people still hung up on this? Knowledge is power, and we have tons of knowledge, right! We can decide if we want to go outside or to that neighborhood BBQ or trick-or-treating. “To think freely” is not only our inalienable right, but it’s also a POWER.
So what am I missing?
