Boston, MA — Across the world, cases of COVID-19 continue to grow. The CDC reports over half a million cases in the United States in the past week and over 9 million cases since the beginning of the pandemic. While the pandemic has been tragic, for many others it has taken away everything.
When I say tragic, I am talking about the loss of life. Any life that is lost as part of a pandemic is a tragedy and any decent person admits that (including President Trump). What is concerning is that millions of Americans have lost jobs and businesses as a result of shut down orders.
Small business owners across the country continue to struggle to cope with the forced recession by many states across the country. Even many large businesses have struggled to get by, with many closing or reducing their workforce as part of the pandemic.
That has not stopped Democrats from advocating for more closures and more restrictions. Even Dr. Fauci has said that a national mask mandate should happen, even though he was against it before. But an event on Saturday gives us a better look at what this country will look like as part of a Joe Biden national shutdown.
Biden has said he is willing to shut down the economy, forcing Americans into government dependence if he were elected. On Saturday, England decided to go back into another national shutdown to try to control coronavirus.
While the Prime Minister spoke with the urgency for a national shutdown, the order was delayed in taking effect until Thursday. It’s scheduled to be in effect for 4 weeks, ending on December 2nd. It’s a glimpse at what America will look like if Joe Biden wins.
In England, you will not be able to leave your home unless it’s for an essential reason such as essential workers, education, healthcare, or groceries. Except Joe Biden will take things even further. He has advocated for shutting down schools, even though England has left schools open.
Biden will not be happy with simply shutting things down, instead, he wants to force government dependence on everyone. He wants to mirror that of England, rather than being the United States and leading the way.
As I have said many times, I am not saying the coronavirus is not a serious thing. I have close friends and family that have contracted this Chinese virus and have suffered tremendously. My heart goes out to anyone that has lost family due to the virus.
The problem I have is that we have completely transitioned into a nation of fear. We are afraid of people and things, like simply eating dinner at a restaurant. Rather than focusing on how we can enjoy life, we are willing to give up our freedom and ability to live out of fear.
Thousands of people travel in cars each day, risking their lives as they do so. Thousands travel in airplanes risking their lives of a possible plane crash, yet they still get onto that airplane. We run the risk of contracting and dying from thousands of diseases every day, but we do not even talk about those.
So take a good look at what is happening in Europe, because that is exactly what Joe Biden’s America will look like. You will be stuck at home in a national shutdown, unable to leave unless absolutely necessary. You’ll have to wait on that government check before you can purchase those essentials also.
If you want that lifestyle, there are plenty of countries that you can move to and enjoy. I’ll stick with the United States, where we can implement measures to enjoy our lives and live without fear, even in the middle of a pandemic.
