There is no doubt that the Chinese Communist Virus is easily transmissible and deadly, especially to a cohort of senior citizens and those with underlying diseases. As a result, politicians have taken unprecedented action and seized power that resulted in substantial disruptions to our economy and our patterns of daily living.
The unforeseen impacts of the Chinese Communist Virus are affecting every institution, company, and family in America.
So what have we learned from the political reaction to this historical threat?
The implications of using still-developing science, models with faulty assumptions, and dodgy data that predict extreme outcomes to drive ideological-based public policies should serve as a cautionary tale for those who want to fundamentally transform our nation to combat the Chinese Communist Coronavirus or that other progressive excuse known as global climate change.
The near-collapse of our economy and the rewriting of long-held social customs such as handshaking illustrate the dangers of relying on both inaccurate modeling and partisan ideologues to inform and direct public policies.
The progressive threat is not as invisible as the virus itself, and much can be learned from the political response to the Communist Chinese Virus?
Most revealing is the degree to which the un-American progressive socialist democrats have allowed their ideological predispositions to inform public policy, and to the degree, such policies appear to be supported by real or imagined science, all the better.
Everybody must participate, or the sham may be exposed by those who do not drink the ideological Kool-Aid and thrive and prosper in the face of artificial adversity. There are wide swaths of America who could have taken mitigation programs and remained open. Especially those areas with no virus being present.
The public sector is prioritized over the private sector as it continues to enjoy a relatively stable salary and healthcare benefits while private sector businesses are going under and workers become unemployed.
Class warfare is enhanced by dividing America into two classes of people, essential and non-essential, and providing preferential treatment to the essential class. One might ask how long it might be before a progressive politician demands that certain minorities be given essential status as a form of reparations for historical injustice?
The crisis is being used to expand government, increase the population's reliance on government programs and giveaways --- and to promote the acceptance of unprecedented authoritarian controls over previously enjoyed freedoms.
And no discussion would be complete without observing that the modern corporatized media has failed their audience to a spectacular degree. Substituting ideology, speculation, and raw political talking points for sophisticated analysis and objective reporting. Almost every subject being dumbed down to the point of certitude rather than discussing the range of possibilities and probabilities.
Did the politicians have a rational and reasonable evidenced-based view of the emerging threat to promote their public policies that brought a large portion of our economy to a near standstill and caused life-altering disruptions among the citizenry?
Was the mainstream media complicit in lying to the American people by omitting or distorting factual reporting?
Where were those purported civil liberties groups when our most basic civil liberties were being attacked by an increasingly authoritarian and sometimes tyrannical government?
These are questions you must answer for yourself when you vote or decide to engage with a media outlet.
Personally, as a constitutional conservative, I will not vote for the un-American progressive socialist democrats and their constant corruption and ideological crazy-making. I no longer watch most television or purchase magazines or newspapers. As a result, I believe I am better informed than those who consume the progressive Kool-Aid, which is rapidly destroying America from within.
We are so screwed.
