Joe Biden and his new “health” advisor team want to impose another lockdown on businesses, churches, schools, and people.
They want to turn the entire nation into the similar repressive and oppressive states such as California and New York.
Here are 7 Lockdown II facts:
1. Another lockdown is not needed.
- After advocating lockdowns in July, both the WHO and the CDC reversed course in October and now do not recommend lockdowns.1
- The death rate from COVID-19 is 0.2% to 0.5%.
- 81% of all COVID-19 deaths are people 65 years of age and older.2
- 60% of all COVID-19 deaths are people 75 years of age and older.
- 94% of COVID-19 deaths are people with underlying health conditions…and the vast majority are in nursing homes.
- The hospitals are not close to capacity.
- Over 99% of those who get COVID-19 recover fully.
Cases of the virus are rising. Testing is finding more people have it. Meanwhile, the mortality rate is falling as treatments keep improving. None of this is a surprise…the rising number of cases DOES NOT justify another lockdown.
Bottom line, the facts do not justify another lockdown (it would be the worst choice).
2. The previous lockdowns did not work.
- Over 70% of people who contracted COVID-19 stayed home and wore a facemask when going outside. The lockdown made them worse.
- Sweden never imposed a lockdown yet had the same infection rate as the U.S. and less than the rest of Europe while in lockdown.
- A lockdown is a socialist solution. Government dictating behavior based on a one-size-fits-all from a flawed or politicized health bureaucracy and the power hungry politicians.
The previous lockdown is still having horrible results. Another would be worse.
- Suicide rates have dramatically risen.
- Drug use has dramatically increased.
- Depression has dramatically skyrocketed.
- Alcohol use has dramatically exploded.
- Poverty rates have nearly doubled.
The lockdowns produce side effects worse than the disease itself.
3. Lockdowns kill education.
Even though kids aren’t likely to get COVID-19 and find it’s a very mild like the flu, the politicians want the schools closed.
Most kids don’t learn well with online learning. It’s a disaster.
The states still favoring school closures are destroying kids’ lives now and in the future…wasn’t from the virus.
The Lockdown is destructive to parents…kids…our future.
4. Lockdowns kill jobs, destroy small businesses and reduce economic opportunity.
Thousands of businesses have been destroyed. Lockdowns have killed thousands of jobs. It’s been an economic disaster.
Thousands of businesses will never return, millions of jobs are gone forever. And a new lockdown will make everything worse – worse than the virus.
5. Lockdowns destroy religious freedom and the free expression of faith.
The unconstitutional lockdown has destroyed hundreds of churches and ministries forever. The lockdowns are an attack on people of faith…the Constitution…Churches must open in lockdown states illegally. The assault on religious freedom must stop.
6. Lockdowns destroy freedom of association, freedom of assembly and other freedoms.
They are designed to isolate people and prevent them from supporting one another. When people have no loyalty to other people, they are easier to control.
Divide and conquer…
7. The lockdowns are primarily a political ploy to bail out the irresponsible, overspending Democrat states.
Fiscally irresponsible state governors know that lockdowns will result in federal stimulus packages to replace lost income – and will include billions to bail out bloated state bureaucracies and to fund their Socialist policies.
Thousands of businesses will never return, millions of jobs are gone forever.
The data doesn’t support another lockdown.
Hundreds of scientists and doctors have publicly opposed another lockdown, but they are being censored by the media, Facebook and Google.
Some socialist scientists and doctors want a lockdown. But opposing scientists and doctors that believe in freedom are shunned and ridiculed.
Socialist economists want a lockdown. But opposing scientists and doctors who are free market supporters are censored.
Resist. No more lockdowns.
