Democrat conspiracies

Rob Leach (“It’s we the people,” Aug. 2) et al. feel compelled to shamefully politicize people dying & losing jobs & businesses due to COVID.

Accusing Democrats of thriving on misery, fear & wanting to make people’s lives worse! We know they’re merely parroting their masters at Faux “news” & the like but if they bothered to think for themselves & do their own research they would see his claim of one half percent fatality rate to COVID is bogus & unsubstantiated.

Also, while we enjoyed the longest term of economic growth in history, most of it occurred during Obama’s presidency. It continued on its upward trajectory after Trump inherited it, but it was not the “greatest” economy ever other than in duration.

Republican governors & mayors have shut down and/or issued other COVID mitigating orders. As do most countries, some with more stringent actions including curfews & fines. Surely these partisans can’t believe they’re all in on some global conspiracy with the Democrats? Sadly, it seems they do. Fortunately though, they are a ripe market for my leprechaun-trained unicorns business.

God bless America.
