• COVID-19 Public Health Problem? Responses of Our Leaders Suggest Otherwise

    Surge Summary: Evidence right before our eyes indicates this coronavirus situation is not really a public health problem but a politicians-wanting-control-problem

    We were told that the police have to force us to behave certain ways because of a public health emergency. That doesn’t make sense. The actions of our politicians don’t match their words.

    • If cops who are not wearing a mask, arrest you for not wearing a mask, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If we release violent criminals from jail, and then jail peaceful shop owners, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If you’re standing alone and cops gather around you to arrest you for not social distancing, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If police threaten to give tickets to a husband and wife because they are sitting next to each other in public, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If police ticket couples who are driving together during a mandatory lockdown, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If you can walk on the beach, but you’ll get arrested for sitting down on the beach, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If you can walk on the beach, but can’t swim alone, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If you can go to the beach, but you can’t fish from the shore, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If churches are closed but abortion centers are open, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If people die of preventable causes because we shut down our hospitals, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If the liquor store clerk can serve thousands of people a day, but you can’t open your business for a few dozen customers, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If golf courses are open, but shooting ranges are closed, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If the grocery clerk can see over a thousand people a day, but your priest can only have 9 other people in his church, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If the court is open for marriage or divorce, but not to renew your concealed carry permit, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If counties who shelter in place have the same death rate as counties who don’t, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If we treat counties that have never seen a death from Covid-19 the same way we treat New York City, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If politicians send sick people back to nursing homes, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If politicians demand help, and then refuse to use emergency hospitals staffed by volunteers, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If you’re told to socially isolate even after you’ve had covid-19 and are now immune from it, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If politicians say we shouldn’t jail people for disobeying the regulations that the politician just wrote, then this isn’t a public health problem.
    • If politicians go to the gym, go get their hair cut, and go to a nail salon, but you can’t, then this isn’t a public health problem.

    We have a political problem during an epidemic, but not because of the epidemic. Politicians want to control you. Please get off the couch and solve it, or we won’t have a country by the November elections.

    Give your elected representatives a call today, and demand your freedom.

    Let us go.
