60% of Americans agree with me that the government’s response to covid-19 made things worse! (According to an Axios-Ipsos poll.)
Bureaucrats blocked testing efforts, and grand-standing politicians stepped on well-focused private-sector efforts to contain the spread of the virus.
Sports leagues were taking the correct steps before the politicians even got out of bed.
Supermarkets created mask-mandatory shopping periods for at-risk people and mask-optional hours for healthy young people. This policy was ideal for protecting the weak while hastening the acquisition of herd resistance.
Politicians destroyed these well-designed efforts by imposing mandatory one-size-fits-all schemes. These policies favored big corporations over small businesses. Their irresponsible stimulus spending did the same.
This is why America desperately needs the libertarian, free-market alternative.
I want a robust economy fueled by free trade, free human movement, low taxes, low spending, balanced budgets, free-market healthcare, and a non-interventionist foreign policy.
