Survival Of The Fittest

I assume many (most?) Trump supporters don’t believe in evolution. Otherwise, you wouldn’t think that they would be so eager to test the notion of survival of the fittest by attending their leaders campaign rally in Tulsa on Saturday.

I don’t know. Maybe I’m nuts or just overly cautious. But I look at the statistics — and the response by POTUS — and I’m inclined to take this pandemic seriously.

I guess from the perspective of Trump and the Republican Party leaders the last point on this chart — days till election — is the most important. And realistically, Trump’s  reelection has been the driver in most of the pathetic decisions that the administration has made regarding the economy and public health up to this point.

So with the goal line of November clearly in sight, Trump and his Republican enablers are willing to roll the dice and reopen venues that clearly could lead to another wave of the virus.

Case in point: Planning to pack some 20,000 people nose to nose in a crowded convention hall for a political rally. And apparently there are people willing to disregard all the cautions of the medical experts and expose themselves and others to what is potentially a life ending ailment.

Again, maybe I’m nuts or just being overly cautious, but I’m not gullible enough to put my life at risk to satisfy the political and career ambitions of a handful of elected officials and government flunkies.

So good luck to those who plan to attend the Trump rally. As they say in the movie The Hunger Games: “May the odds forever be in your favor.”
