Corona is merely the latest election-year medical scare to sweep America.

In 2004, it was SARS. [election year ]
In 2008, it was AVIAN flu. [election year]
In 2010, it was Swine flu.
In 2012, it was MERS. [election year ]
In 2014, it was Ebola.
In 2016, it was Zika. [election year]
In 2018, it was Ebola again.
Now in 2020, it’s Corona. [election year]

It was also Franklin D. Roosevelt who said, “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”

This corona virus scare will end 1) when the powers behind it accomplish what they want to accomplish, which always means more government and less freedom, or 2) when the American people on the whole get tired of the government’s heavy-handed “solutions” and say, “That’s enough!”
