GOVERNOR: A call for freedom

| May 1, 2020 1:00 AM

An open letter to Governor Little:

You stated “It breaks my heart to see years of hard work be plundered by the pandemic.”

I’d like to make a correction. We are not being plundered by the pandemic. We are being plundered by the irrational and unwarranted actions of government, ie lockdowns, school closures and squandering any savings we might have had by way of inflation.

In this controlled demolition of the economy, globalists and mega-bankers will step in and scoop up real estate, businesses and more for pennies on the dollar. The lesson of South Korea is that the solution to the pandemic is targeted intervention based on proper testing, not the wholesale liquidation of liberty.

Let’s let freedom reign and let the operation of the free market solve any problems we might have. Please end the unwarranted and unconstitutional lockdown. If government is the answer, it was a stupid question.
