This week marks the two-year anniversary of the COVID lockdowns. I join
the American people in mourning the lives lost to this virus. I also
mourn those we lost to the crushing and overbearing lockdowns and
mandates that were based on junk science.
The toll of COVID doesn’t stop there. We lost more than individuals. We
lost our freedoms. Our liberties. Our vibrant small town Main Streets.
Our children’s growth and learning. For two years our lives were held
captive by petty tyrants and power-hungry bureaucrats.
No one person should have the sole authority to dictate science,
especially when that one person wasn’t ever following the science. I’ve said that from the beginning, and I’ve been proven right over, and
over, and over again. On masks, lockdowns, schools, natural immunity,
all of it.
The country is still reeling from the economic fallout of the
lockdowns, which didn’t work. A group of researchers at Johns Hopkins University released a report confirming that. The report is an
extensive analysis looking at dozens and dozens of studies, which comes
to the conclusion that lockdowns did not reduce mortality but were
devastating to the economy.
