Dear American Leadership,
We Americans are tired of being used and lied to. The President laid out a 15-day plan to slow the spread of Coronavirus, and what that has led to is continued shutdowns and misinformation being spewed from the “experts”.
We were okay with slowing the spread. We were okay with social distancing. We were okay with taking extra precautions. We were okay with washing our hands. Heck, we were even okay with the idea of taking two weeks off from work to lower the risk. However, we are not okay with the numbers going down and the shutdowns continuing.
It has been almost two months since these “safer-at-home” and “stay at home” orders came out and nothing has changed. Actually, I take that back. A lot has changed. What we have seen is the left advocating for more money to be handed out and the shutdowns to continue.
There have been multiple studies showing that the healthiest thing for people to do is to be outdoors because the sun and fresh air will help people stay healthy. Suicide rates have risen, depression is at an all-time high, and people see no light at the end of the tunnel.
We are still willing to social distance and we are still willing to wash our hands and wear PPE. We just want to go to work. We want to pay our bills. We want to be free again. Americans are willing to give you the benefit of the doubt and lower the risk, but it has become clear that our leadership and experts have used bad information to lead the Coronavirus response. You have caused an economic crash that will take America years to recover from.
So, to the American leadership, I ask that you allow us to be free again. Americans don’t respond well to our freedoms being taken away (source: Revolutionary War, Boston Tea Party.)
