The politics of the left has many ways to kill you

This is just one. They do not care about you or anyone else at all. All they are interested in is power for themselves.

Personally I think it’s mostly politics but some people think it’s all politics. It’s getting harder to tell all the time.

Let me add this for further context: Time for a second opinion.

We are trying to stave off and arrest a pandemic. Given what is being recommended, we think we need some second or third opinions. This pandemic, now that it has reached America, has taken 3,173 lives here. This, from a tested population of 164,359 cases. That’s a mortality rate of 1.9%. But immediately, questions must be asked. We record every case of death from the coronavirus, but we have no idea how many people have had the coronavirus. Clearly, there are more than 164,359 cases because not everyone has been tested. That would put the mortality rate at less than 1.9%. That rate could be far, far less. As Eran Bendavid and Jay Bhattacharya, professors of medicine at Stanford, have written, based on their model of over 6 million cases they believe exist: “That’s a mortality rate of 0.01%, assuming a two-week lag between infection and death. This is one-tenth of the flu mortality rate of 0.1%.”

The data are American, of course, but could just as well be the death-to-infection rate everywhere.
