Knowledge is power. So is science.
The question is, do those in power listen to the scientists (and the doctors by extension)? Or do they believe that they know better?
Nearly two weeks ago, you know who held a rally in Nevada. Among the many ludicrous statements he made, one was the following:
“He’ll listen to the scientists,” Trump continued. “If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression, instead of, we’re like a rocket ship. Take a look at the numbers.”
As usual, he plays with the facts to suit his needs. The county is in a depression not because of Joe Biden, but because of you know who and his administration. To be fair, we have a greater picture of Covid-19 now than we had in March and April. But, that does not mean that the details that were available back then were not credible or important.
I’m sure that if time machines existed, many of us would go back to the beginning of the year and try to warn our past selves about what was to come. But time machines are a work of fiction. We can only move forward and honor the memories of those who have passed.
Honoring those memories includes listening to the experts and saving as many lives as possible. To save those lives, we must vote for a President who will work with the scientists and doctors. Obviously that is not you know who.
