Relax, you’ll be fine!

Ms. Collins from Nine Mile Falls (“Look what you’ve done,” Nov. 11) should relax, turn off Fox News, log-off Facebook, email, Twitter and Instagram and take a deep breath.

At the end of Joe Biden’s and (hopefully Kamala Harris’) presidencies, you will still have all of the rights you have today.

Nobody is going to take away your AR-15 or not allow you to pack heat into the local stop-n-shop .

Nobody is going to make you park your 4x4 pickup or un-stud your tires. No one is going to say you can’t eat a beef hamburger or fly in an airplane. No one is going to ravage Nine Mile Falls or any other suburb. No one is going to take away your incandescent light bulbs or make you turn your heat down.

No one is going to restrict your shower head or make you install a low flow toilet. No one is going to make you go to a doctor you don’t want to go to (not even “socialized medicine” Medicare) unless it’s your private insurance company. No one is going to institute “death panels.” No one is going to make you take a vaccine you do not want to take. You’ll be fine.

In fact, I think you can rest assured that 16 years from now you will enjoy the same freedoms you have today.

Hopefully by then the country will be to addressing climate change, racial injustice, economic disparity, and the other real problems that the country faces.
