This thread here is my exact point as to why America will never defeat COVID. It’s been made political. A deadly disease should have never been made to be political to begin with.
Yet with how volatile our country has been the past 4 years, it’s exactly what has happened. I’m so tired of seeing well Republicans this, Democrats this. We should have come together as people throughout this and fought and defeated it together.
I disagree completely with mask mandates by the government. The way to get people to wear masks should not be dictated from a government. It needed to be done differently. It should have been education, not a mandate.
The fact of the matter is, our top healthcare officials couldn’t get their crap together and agree or even learn about this virus when it was happening in China. Then it came here and they all changed their stance 50 times. It should have been one stance from the beginning. Now they’ve brewed distrust amongst the general public.
Now it’s political. Now we have mayors and governors with way too much power thinking they are Kings. It’s all out of control.
The CDC, the surgeon general, and Dr. Fauci have failed our country. Those are the people that needed to be in unison and leading our country through this pandemic from the beginning.
The absolute deep hatred between the two parties has caused people their lives in this country. It’s sad. Sitting here saying well, conservatives this, and liberals that will not save people from dying.
This thread is absolute perfect proof of what is absolutely wrong with our response to the pandemic.
