After 2020, it was hard to imagine a worse year, but 2021 showed us when things are bad, they can get worse and a lot worse. With the current crazy political leadership, 2022 could be even worse still, so don’t expect we can just wait out the chaos. 2020 was bad for a nation plagued by an ambiguous politicized pandemic, but Americans had hope we could overcome anything until the presidential election was brazenly stolen and the media just blatantly lied about it. When fairness was thwarted and justice denied to the entire country, it’s hard to imagine anything works right anymore. As a Democrat Congress and White House plundered America with progressive policies in 2021, it seemed there was no way to stop the madness, but the sheer lunacy of the left was not just exposed – it became inescapable, even for some Democrats. Therein lies reason for hope.
When the Chinese virus struck, it fostered fear as an unknown disease with uncertainty about its cause, effects, and treatments. Healthcare hacks and media fakes hyped the danger and misled us about remedies and perhaps downright malpractice in questionable protocols, but two years later Americans find all the hyperbole annoying and tedious. Americans learned by experience, that masks are useless, lockdowns make no difference, and social distancing was silly. COVID struck the elderly, mostly those with comorbidities, so how convenient to sensationalize statistics of people who were probably going to die anyway. Children have an over 99.9% survival rate, but the government is adamant they be vaccinated. After all this misinformation, it’s not hard to see the government is unconcerned with public health, but rather has ulterior motives to control its citizens.
