“During the recent holiday, I reflected on how we’ve strayed from the ideals expressed so eloquently by Thomas Jefferson. You don’t have to be a Reagan Republican to see how governments at the state, local, and federal levels can obstruct our pursuit of happiness and at times even jeopardize our safety. Consider the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the virus’s perils, governments abused their authority through lockdown policies and onerous outdoor mask mandates. Many schools remained closed despite data that revealed safe ways to bring the kids back. And when schools did reopen, the priority wasn’t education but, instead, hygiene theater.” (07/08/21)
