Everywhere we look, there are reminders that the Left has brought us down a dangerous road during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have stores and restaurants mandating facemasks, annual events being canceled, sporting events without spectators…and all for a disease with a .001% death rate.
But while everyone’s talking about what we’ve got to do to stop the spread, focusing on how to keep ourselves safe until a vaccine or therapy is found, nobody is talking about when exactly America will no longer be living in a constant state of fear.
Have you heard one elected official or so-called expert talk about the endgame strategy for COVID-19? Meaning, at what point will they be satisfied? When will America be able to get back to moving full steam ahead?
At first, it was about flattening the curve. We’re seven months into the “two weeks to slow the spread” plan, and still, nothing has changed.
We did that—even after MONTHS of riots—but now they’re moving the goalposts while refusing to tell us when things will get back to normal.
What Are Officials Looking For?
Is there a percentage they’re looking for?
Do we need to reach ZERO cases?
Somebody needs to figure things out, because American’s are sitting alone in the dark waiting for the answer.
Are they waiting for a vaccine?
Because if they are, they could be waiting a long time. Even worse, a vaccine isn’t always the best answer. We have a flu vaccine that is only 40-60% effective and roughly 20,000 Americans will die of the flu or flu complications every year.
Even then, less than half the US population gets flu vaccinations anyway. Are they going to make people get vaccinated for COVID-19 through some sort of government mandate?
How well do you think that will go over with the patriots of this land? How about all those anti-vaxxers everyone used to laugh at?
Here’s the thing…
COVID-19 is dangerous—for some people.
For others, it’s a dry cough or a fever for a couple of days, and we can’t stop living because we’re afraid of something that may not affect us.
Know what else is dangerous to some people? Nuts and shellfish—but it’s important to KNOW what your challenges could be and avoid situations that could potentially put you in danger.
At some point, we have to decide whether or not our quality of life outweighs the risks involved…
Because when you really think about it, we take many calculated risks every day without giving it a second thought.
Life IS Risk!
We know driving a car can be dangerous, but we don’t leave our cars in the garage just because other people have crashed theirs.
We speed around in those same cars knowing the risks, and we don’t take our foot of the gas until we see a black and white car up ahead…
We simply buckle up and expect to get to our destination.
We also know how bad smoking is for you, but when they created a new way to do it and called it vaping, it took off overnight.
We know that eating fried or fatty foods can clog arteries and make us fat, adding all kinds of health complications to our list, but take a look at the drive-thru windows at your local fast-food joint.
The reason that God doesn’t intervene with our lives because He gave us the free will to make our decisions…
Is it too much to ask that our governments give us that same courtesy?
I understand that there is a possibility that I could die if I catch COVID-19, but I also know that the odds against that happening are astronomical – which is why I’m ok getting back to normal as soon as possible.
I understand if I’m not careful (ie. wearing a mask), I could possibly pass COVID-19 on to someone else that may not be as healthy as I am—but can’t I can pass on any disease to someone else?
Like most Americans, I’m looking for the point that we can put this pandemic to bed—and you’d think a 99.98% survivability rate would have been enough to bury this whole thing.
Instead, it’s actually gotten worse…
The only loophole is protesting—and only as long as those protests are for a Liberal cause and not a Conservative one.
The truth is that we need to get back to normal living and the government needs to let it happen…
We have a limited time on this planet, and I don’t want to spend the rest of my days living in fear.
“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.” – Joan of Arc
