In this week’s op-ed for CNS News, LTC Allen West discusses the virus all Americans should be concerned about: tyranny:
“Consider the facts in this matter. We firmly know, and have the empirical data showing that COVID-19 has a 99.6 percent recovery rate. We know that COVID-19 is most dangerous for those with underlying medical conditions such as hypertension, heart disease, COPD, Type 2 diabetes, and obesity. Those Americans over the age of 65 have been the hardest hit by COVID-19. Sadly, we have lost over 60,000 Americans, but it was just 2017-2018 when the common influenza season resulted in the loss of 61,000 Americans.
And we took no draconian measures then, nor was there an induced fear, panic, paranoia, and hysteria.”
