I’ve expressed my political beliefs before; I am not a fan of President Trump and many of my views would be labeled as socialistic.
As a result, I was tempted to write a post that was going to include a few anti-Trump and pro-socialist memes that I have recently found across the Internet, memes that I found myself agreeing with what they had to say about our country’s reaction to the covid-19 pandemic.
But I am sure there are other memes out there that are pro-Trump and anti-socialism.
So I thought, what’s the point of adding to the noise. If somebody wants to find memes that support their beliefs, then they can do so.
I appreciate my fellow bloggers who keep me aware of what is going on with the virus, with Washington, D.C., with our country, and with the world. I hope they continue to do so because they can do it so much better than I can.
I think the most important thing we can do as a country to stop the spread of covid-19 is to simply put politics aside and do what is best for the country. Figure out what is the best way to solve the problem, and act together to do so.
I also think we should act as a country, not as 50 separate states. Why are there different rules in place in terms of work, schools, sheltering in place, etc. across all the states? Shouldn’t there be just one policy for every citizen of the U.S. to follow?
If we need to stay six feet apart, then that’s what should be doing, no questions asked.
If we need to wear a mask of some type when we go out in public, then that’s what we should be doing, no questions asked (this seems to be the latest recommendation.
If we need companies to make ventilators and PPE, then that’s what companies should be doing, no questions asked.
If we need our leaders to do what’s best for our country, then that’s what they should be doing, no questions asked, and putting politics aside.
Remember how the country cheered as one when the U.S. hockey team beat the Soviet Union in the 1980 Olympics? Remember the chants of USA! USA! USA!? (If you don’t remember it, here’s a link to a video of the last 60 seconds of the game. I get goosebumps every time I watch it.)
Well, we need to unite as one just like we did back then, but this time it’s the U.S. vs. covid-19. My money is on the U.S., but we need to work together to make sure the game doesn’t go into overtime.
Maybe what we need is another Hands Across America event – but this time we stand six feet apart…
USA! USA! USA!
Stay safe, and thank you to all the helpers out there…
