Many letters to the editor ago, I opined that COVID-19 was being overhyped and was criticized for saying that a disease with a survivability rate of 99.97% should not be politicized for the purpose of defeating President Trump. Well, it was, and still is being overhyped and used for political purposes.
Think not? If you use the numbers estimated by the CDC that over 900,000 people died of COVID-19 and if you divide that by the CDC estimated cases of 146,000,000, the survivability rate is 99.993%
I'm of the opinion that the CDC along with the government statistics have over-reported deaths and under-reported COVID-19 cases.
Now deaths are pretty easy to recognize, but the actual cause can be distorted as the CDC uses a statistical model from the National Center of Health Statistics to determine how many deaths from COVID-19 vs. with COVID-19.
Over the last year and a half, we (We the People) have been forced to close businesses, schools, churches and cower at home in fear. We (We the People) were forced to wear ineffective masks, stay away from other people, and more recently, unconstitutionally mandated to get a medical procedure against our will. We’ve been dealing with coronaviruses all our lives called the common cold. The medical community has totally let down the American public (We the People), the CDC and the government have lost all credibility, big Pharma is corrupt and the mainstream media are nothing but fear-mongering propagandists.
If liberty means anything at all to us (We the People), it’s time to quit putting up with this freedom-restricting environment and start living our lives as We the People deserve under the Constitution.
