First Man-Made Depression

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Newton’s Third Law of Motion

People are in hysteria. So is the economy. The government is playing dictator under the guise that they know what’s best for us. But do they?

When is the fact that our freedoms are severely being impinged upon going to matter?

Millions of people died from the bubonic plague. Millions. The death rate was about 50% of those who got it. Yet, there was no force shut down of businesses. People self-quarantined, and those who had it were quarantined. And this was the Black Plague. Economic depression resulted, not because of a shut down of businesses, but because half of Europe’s population was wiped out.

If this mess goes on longer than 30 days, most of us will lose our jobs. By the time the government deems it safe, it will take years for our economy to recover. People’s lives will have been set back years, and maybe even ruined — all because the government is overreacting to a tiny virus that is going to die out on its own this summer.

I’m wondering what our Founding Fathers would say to this. I’m wondering how we let our government with one breath, tell us to shut down everything we’ve worked for our entire lives.

Politicians don’t care. They will pay themselves using fake money that we will all pay for when inflation goes through the roof.

What began as a precaution has now hit hysteria. Our economy is drowning. Americans are struggling, believing in a government they should not be believing in.

The government is playing God.

This could be America’s first man-made depression. Hopefully, our leaders will realize this before it’s too late. Or, hopefully Americans will take to the streets, demanding the government take action.
