Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

In the Future, Pandemics Must Be Fought By Doctors, Not Politicians

I’m sick of politicians, who seem to pay no attention to the evidence of how weak this coronavirus actually is, making decisions as to what citizens are permitted to do, and what businesses must close or are allowed to remain open.

I’m sick of the leftist press blaming our president for deaths that happen during this disease.

I’m sick of watching America’s economy being destroyed by arbitrary decisions made by not-too-smart governors and mayors, mostly Democrats, who naturally have the tendency to issue demands simply because they can.

In short, I’m sick during this pandemic, and my suffering has nothing to do with the virus, but rather it has everything to do with my fellow Americans and our dictatorial rulers. Politicians will always use politics to defeat other politicians, so they should stay out of decisions pertaining to quarantines and economic shutdowns, because citizens are the unnoticed victims of political fights.

During past disease invasions we only had to suffer the disease, and not a combination of a disease, joblessness, political insults and a loss of income caused by politicians.

The researchers tell us that hundreds of thousands of Americans have been infected with this current virus, and the infected persons either had no symptoms of being sick, or the thought they only had a mild cold. Has a decision been made that we will shut down our nation and destroy our way of life each cold and flu season as one or another virus begins to make people feel bad? And this year we’ve also seen that the shutdown has caused many hospitals to lose sufficient funds via the prohibition to treat anything but the coronavirus, and that many will go bankrupt, thereby not being able to help sick people back to health. Why are we doing this to ourselves? We’re hurting not only ourselves, but we are making life dim and dark for our children, and all to assure that Trump isn’t re-elected in November?

We must keep the idiot politicians out of our medical decisions.
