To be sure This virus is dangerous and the most vulnerable should be quarantined and extreme care taken to ensure folks susceptible to serious consequences are protected. IMO it isnít a binary choice between continued sheltering/economic shutdown and opening the countryís economy and trying to return to normal where possible. There are vast regions of the country and states that are minimally impacted. At this point there is a lot more known about the virus how to curb the infection rate.
Fear is a powerful motivator to forfeit basic constitutional rights and some of these governors IMO have way overstepped their boundaries to what should be power limited by the constitution (State and Federal} and in a lot of cases arenít outlining a reasonable plan for recovery. Iím retired and immune compromised. My wife experienced cancer a year ago and as a result we went to a Whole Foods plant based diet so we havenít had difficulty obtaining groceries for our diet. The lockdown has had minimal impact on my lifestyle, the range I go to is open but no leagues or organized matches.
I havenít taken part in any of the demonstrations but fully support folks right to do so. If this lasts much longer in my state I will be attending and participating in the demonstrations.
