• The 2020 Epidemic Might Convince Us We Elected the Wrong Politician …

    Surge Summary: The COVID-19 pandemic has given us lots of hints about how we might have elected the wrong politicians to lead us …

    I’ve learned a lot from the Coronavirus. I’m slightly more informed about epidemics and immunology than I was six months ago. One thing is certain, we’ve learned a lot about the politicians we put in office. This might not apply to you, but see if some of it does.

    • We might have elected the wrong person if the local bar and liquor store is open, but the local AA meeting was forced to shut down.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if we’ll be arrested for opening our business, but not for burning one down.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if we’ll will be arrested for going back to work, but convicted criminals are released from jail.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if we can be arrested for walking in the park, but our politician flew his family to a beach in Florida.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if people can gather to protest on the street, but we cannot come together to praise in church.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if our politician moves people who are contagious with Covid 19 into nursing homes filled with old people.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if the local abortion clinic is open, but the pro-life pregnancy clinic is padlocked.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if our politicians praised a black man who fought with the police, but ignored the death of a black store owner who was murdered by looters.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if we can file for divorce, but can’t apply for a permit to buy a gun.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if armed protesters can threaten us, but an honest homeowner or business man was charged for being armed in public.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if our barber will be arrested for cutting hair… unless he is cutting the politician’s hair.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if our gym is closed… except for the times when a politician wants to exercise.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if our politician with his law degree is telling our doctor which drugs to use.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if our neighbors die because they can’t get hospital treatment, while our hospitals have empty beds waiting for the flood of Covid patients that never came.
    • We might have elected the wrong person when school teachers try to burn down federal buildings, and then complain that we’re not respecting teacher-safety because we want to open schools.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if our community has a higher death rate from Covid 19 than the rates we see in countries which never imposed a quarantine or social distancing.
    • We might have elected the wrong person if our city wants to defund the police, and then hires private security guards to protect city executives.

    All this is understandable since all of us make mistakes. Some of us learn from our mistakes rather than repeat them over and over.

    Let’s learn from this epidemic and not repeat our old mistakes at the ballot box in November.
