In the beginning Trump was all proud of how this virus has brought us all together. Apparently not for long. My question is how do you see politics playing into the handling of it. Also for the layperson is it aligned. If you are a Democrat do you want the country to open slowly and if you are a Republican do you want it to open quicker? In other words does this align with your ideals and values? I'm a bit naive to politics so would appreciate the education. Thank you!

I think politics should have nothing to do with it.

Whether you wear a mask or not should not be a political statement. Whether you take hydroxy or not shouldn't be a political statement. Different parts of the country and different industries should reopen at different stages, and again politics should not play into it.

Other countries around the world have managed to figure it out without turning every step into an election issue.

Embarrassing.

Can’t wait to see how this pans out! This post should be fun. Getting my kettle out. And the popcorn seeds.


My opinion is that it’s definitely time for businesses to open and it’s political for sure at this point. We all know that!

But why should it be? Can you explain one reason why politics should play a role in what medication you take? Or how you do your shopping?

Not everything in the world needs to be political.

That's your 12 year old answer.

I truly believe that some Democrats like Pelosi don't want to open the economy in a deliberate effort to tank the economy in order to hurt Trump's reelection chances.

I keep hearing that, but for me and for so many others, it isn't political. It never was!

Every action you have taken since the virus has begun was aligned with your party? Not for me!

Democrats have a policy: Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste - this means use every crisis to
advance Democrat Party and Increase Government CONTROL.

When the Shutdown first started it was for only 2 weeks and we were told it was to "flatten the curve" so hospitals / ventilator supplies would not be overwhelmed.

It is now EIGHT WEEKS, the curve has been long flattened, yet predominantly DEMOCRAT governors refuse to end the shut down, wanting to keep their UnConstitutional Powers to act like
Dictators and close Houses of Worship, Destroy Jobs make everyone dependent on Government Handouts, stop people from assembling and protesting, etc. Democrats are Socialists and Socialists are Dictators who want absolute CONTROL/Power over everyone and everything.
You can clearly see this now.

Trump's greatest reason for re-election was the Fantastic Economy that he created.
Democrats want to DELIBERATELY Destroy the economy and make everyone poor -
and they are trying to blame the high unemployment on Trump when it is DEMOCRATS who
are destroying jobs by refusing to lift the shut-down.

Thank you BestBubby. Now how would you go about explaining the Republican side of it. You explained the Democrat side without actually being a Democrat yourself. Another question I have for you is couldnt this be described better as democrats being ok being governed (Democrat constituents) and that they don't value capitalism the same way republicans do?

When the "experts" were predicting MILLIONS of deaths, Republicans agreed that a shut down was necessary. As time passed it was clear that the experts were waaaaaaaay wrong about everything. The mortality rate from coronavirus is quite low and seems to effect primarily the elderly and sick. Republicans, including Trump, have been pushing for people to go back to work, with SD, while those at high risk continue to shelter at home.

Democrat constituents have been brainwashed by public schoole, colleges, News Media that it is impossible for them to survive without the help of government - that they are all victims and oppressed, and that capitalism is UNFAIR and Socialism is FAIR.

In general, I agree with Jeanette.

What we should learn, politically speaking, is that "Democrat" and "Republican" labels are less relevant at the state and local levels, and those are the levels that affect our lives the most.

States and regions are experiencing Covid-19 differently and require different strategies and responses. There are Democratic governors and mayors doing a great job, and there are Republican governors and mayors doing a great job. There are also Democrats and Republicans who've been thoroughly incompetent.

Of course, both parties are pouncing on any opportunity to score points against their political opponents, but this is hardly new, and anyone who thinks it's gotten objectively worse in recent years should study political history a bit more.

Who cares about Bubby (not BestBubby), she'll anyways die any day!

For reference:
Deaths 95,213 (USA)
Deaths 333K (Worldwide)

Most of the people who died had TWO or more illnesses. Vast majority are very low risk.
Even people in their 60s. The biggest mortality spike is for those over 70.

Well since tens of thousands of Bubbies and Zeidies die EVERY YEAR from the flu,
What do you propose, itsmeima?

That nobody every work again? Then EVERYONE dies.

Those at high risk have to take extra precautions - can't lock up EVERYONE forever.

Just curious how many bubby's and zaidys you know that died from the flu? Fortunately,I know zero. Can't say the same for covid.

One other thing,NY and NJ are opening up..guess they aren't trying to tank the economy anymore?
