This virus has politicians behaving as medical experts, and medical experts behaving like politicians. Ron Paul knows about both and doesn’t like what he’s seeing.
If we’re talking about ‘evidence-based’ decisions, the evidence that cause us to shut down the global economy itself seems pretty sketchy.
The former Texas Republican representative accused Fauci of providing ‘bad information’ when he said Thursday that he expects about 60,000 people will die from the outbreak, down from 100,000 to 200,000, but only if social distancing continues and effectively slows the spread of the disease.
Paul, speaking on his program, ‘Ron Paul Liberty Report,’ unleashed his criticism on Fauci, saying he was using the virus as an excuse to get ‘total control’ of the American people.
‘He should be fired, but if you don’t do it in the literal sense, the people have to fire him,’ Paul said. ‘They have to fire him by saying ‘he’s a fraud.” — DailyMail
Not just the evidence, either. He’s looking at the ‘evidence’ supporting the entire Social Distancing experiment, and there’s not much there.
Starting at 12:28 in the video, he leads into the case for why — beyond just the failed prediction models that are being reframed as a smashing success — he doesn’t trust the ‘experts’ who are demanding ordinary Americans unquestioningly bend the knee to the demands of a couple of authority figures.
Some of us have a problem with unlimited government authority.
You might say that rebellious streak is built right into the American DNA — or it WAS, anyway.
This smells to Dr. Paul like a power grab of the worst kind. One whose secondary effects are dangerously unpredictable — including the normalizing of a docile acceptance of ‘the government said so’.
Whatever happened to the ‘question authority’ vibe of the 20th Century? When did ‘OBEY’ get swapped out to ‘submit or you are a monster hellbent on killing people’?
How wrong does an ‘expert’ have to be before we shrug our shoulders and decide his ‘insights’ aren’t all that useful?
Ron Paul is saying it’s time we kick this ‘expert’ and his advice to the curb, and get on with life in America.
