Human life is sacred; granted. Americans have a Constitutional protection against the unwarranted taking of innocent human life; that too is granted, although that Constitutional right is violated by American courts and opposed by a whole political party.
How many times, in this land, have we heard the Leftist refrain, "If we can save even one single life, it will have been worth it", offered by the same people who champion legal abortion, when pushing an agenda item such as gun control. Today we're hearing it in relation to quarantining the healthy populations of whole states, shutting down free enterprise and stopping the whole nation's economic engine.
When America gets an economic cold, the world gets economic pneumonia.
In the theological or supernatural sense, the value of one human life is infinite. But what is one human life worth in the real world sense? How many other lives, in America and in the world, would be shortened greatly by personal impoverishment, economic collapse and the social disorder that always accompanies super-depression?
What is the proper perspective here?
Let's look at the actual Covid-19 infection and death numbers.
Not exactly Bubonic Plague numbers. Nor are these comparable to Spanish flu numbers. Nor are they even anywhere near Swine Flu levels.
So why are we quarantining the healthy population of the USA? And Ohio? And other states?
As pointed out in the Coronavirus and the Panic treatments, the USA always has lower infection rates and lower death rates for all diseases as compared to world rates, because Americans are, number one, healthier, and two, Americans have better health care systems in place than does the outside world.
Americans eat better and more, they have better and cleaner shelter, they are better clothed, etc., etc., etc. Much of the outside world lives in mud huts with earthen floors, and lack the blessings of things like soap, central heat, air conditioning, easy transport, nearby hospitals and all the things we take for granted. (And, all the things the Marxocrat Party seeks to take away from Americans and do away with.)
Again, American Capitalism is the reason behind the irrefutable fact of American superiority in health, and most other aspects of the living of one's life. It may readily be seen that the nations that have more free market Capitalism as compared to Socialism live better and healthier lives, and the reverse is true. Nations in which Socialism predominates over the free market and the liberty of the citizenry live worse and unhealthier lives, and are more subject to the worst effects of contagions such as Covid-19.
Governments, of any kind, are just not as good as the free private sector at the practice of medicine, or farming, or food production, or anything, really, other than border security and national defense.
Take all the environmental political hoaxes perpetrated by the Eco-Nazi Movement, with the Climate Change hoax being the most successful at the moment. So convinced are younger generations that it is true that they look to elitist looney-tunes like Elon Musk for their worldly salvation. They actually believe he is some kind of super-genius savior, but he is in actuality a hare-brained nincompoop. People are lining up to buy tickets on his developing rocket program aimed at colonizing Mars.
Right. Let me offer a bit of advice to all who are anxious to get on board one of Elon Musk's rocket ships to Mars: Start thinking real hard now, and keep right on thinking all through the multi-year travel to Mars, and develop the technology required to live on Mars for a week or two. Think that technology up and develop it, right now, because once you get there you can't get back. And there is nothing there to eat or drink or breath.
The sheer stupidity alone should be enough to take your breath away.
Climate Change is a pure political hoax aimed at terrifying populations into accepting economically and nationally destructive programs such as the Green New Deal. The real purpose of the Climate Change lie is the same as the Open-Borders / Unlimited-Immigration political program. It is to wreck the American economy and "transform" America out from under her Constitution, and into Socialism.
The Marxocrat Party's political commandeering of the Coronavirus Pandemic is no different. Plenty of Republicrat and other Globalists are on board the Marxocrat train, as are plenty of Never-Trumpers of various spot and stripe. If they can't wreck our economy with the Green New Deal, they'll do it with any crisis that comes along and can be politically blown all out of proper proportion.
I am convinced that is what is going on here.
No one (or at least no Christian) wants to see anyone die. But neither should we want to see potentially permanent damage done to our nation, and the very principles that made us free of domination by men.
Remember, until the USA, all nations were nations of men. They were ruled by men. Some men were above the law, some men were impervious to the law, and some men actually were the law, as in Monarchy.
America changed all of that. We are the first and only nation of laws and not of men. Our only ruler is a piece of paper; our Constitution. It is the Supreme Law of the Land, and it rules our three coequal branches of government equally as it rules us. it lays out the deign of the government and gives it its rules of operation, its scope and its limitations. It lays out our rights as sovereign citizens, and protects those rights from the government.
No other nation on earth can say that.
That is what Marxism, and Islam, and Stupidity, are out to destroy.
If the American way is not perfect, it is closer than anything else tried so far. No person, no nation and no government organization is or ever will be perfect; but we come closer than anything else to date.
If you wonder why Marxists hate America, that's it.
And, to hate America is to hate Trump, because he represents America.
This Coronavirus crisis is now actually doing what the Marxocrat Party has planned to do with the Green New Deal, and that is, wrecking the American economy and impoverishing the American citizenry, and destabilizing the nation so that, one way or another, the Constitution may be set aside on an emergency basis. And once that is done, the set-aside will be made permanent, if they can do it and get away with it.
Some of the damage that is being done during this emergency situation is going to be permanent. Some people are going to be broke. Some businesses are going to go out of business. Some layoffs are going to become permanent. Some savings are going to be used up, and some 401K and other investments are going to be cashed in or lost. Homes and cars will be lost. Large employers will be bankrupted. Existing depression and anxiety cases will be worsened, and suicides will go up. As will crime.
Meanwhile, most of us are slowed almost to a standstill if not shut down and out of business.
Maybe there is no perfect solution to the Covid-19 pandemic, but in our estimation, the best solution would be to let everyone go back to work while they still can.
Send a happy thought to Rush, hoping for a speedy recovery.
Wash your hands again, pray another Rosary and bide your time.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Get in the fight! Engage!
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
