Random Thoughts of the Day
The mainstream media & democrat politicians are so insistent on lockdowns and closings because they want to spread feelings of misery, hysteria, and chaos in anticipation of the November election. We know this, but there’s another reason–numbers. Keeping the economy & schools as closed down as possible distorts national numbers of economic health–GDP, budget deficits, unemployment, productivity, and so on. This gives easy talking points for November to not only Joe Biden but all Democrats running for office. Not only that, but if Biden is elected, it makes it easy to claim success of his programs as he’s given credit for improving numbers. In other words, as the Covid-19 nonsense fades, the economy will naturally pick up regardless of who is president, causing jobs to be created, GDP & productivity to increase, and tax revenues to resume, which will bring down the deficit. In subsequent elections, Democrats can then say “See, look how well the economy does under Democrats compared to the Republican economy,” conveniently leaving out the coronavirus mess. The same thing was done with the Obama presidency. Recall that he took over in the deepest pit of the housing crisis recession and TARP spending bill. Despite the fact his policies caused one of the weakest recoveries in history, he was still given credit for “improving” the U.S. economy, with Democrat & media operatives conveniently leaving out any mention of the housing crisis.
