NBC’s Chuck Todd: Are Americans Willing to Sacrifice Freedoms to Defeat Virus?
Over the past several weeks we have seen our fellow countrymen willingly surrender their civil liberties for the sake of public safety. Churches have shuttered their worship centers. Small businesses have been ordered to close. Curfews have been imposed.
And in some cities, lawmakers have implemented emergency declarations that give them the power to curtail gun sales and gun ownership.
I warned you that the greater threat to the United States of America is not the coronavirus, but power-hungry lawmakers.
And that brings me to a question NBC’s Chuck Todd asked on his television program today.
“Are we prepared to temporarily sacrifice enough of the freedoms we as Americans take for granted to knock this menace down to at least a Category 3,” he asked.
Well, America? Are we?
TODAY: America shuts down …
While we wait for coronavirus tests
While we wait for medical workers to get protective equipment
While we wait for hospital beds and ventilators
