Someone I respect, Tulsi Gabbard, has just described Coronavirus as the “enemy” ……. I am worried about this common attempt to use a military approach to a health care problem …….. I think that the Coronavirus is a germ not a miltary foe ……. it is a part of both nature and God’s creation …..
in tackling the problem we need to care not to fight ….. and to be able to care, we need to stay alive.
So important jobs like POTUS need to be done by people not at risk of death because of their age.
Of the last three Democrat candidates in the 2020 race Gabbard was the only one under 77 years old.
Sanders, 78, recent heart attack. Biden, 77, memory and cognitive abilities in clear decline. Trump, 74. Pence, 60. Both Republicans are in good health.
Who’s fit to govern?

I am now a stateless refugee.
I have a chance of sanctuary and a meaningful life in the Republic of Indonesia.
I flee from a western world which is at war with itself and at war with human nature.
This war is a cultural war. To paraphrase and borrow from former
Reagan White House Director Of Communications Patrick J Buchanan from his landmark
1992 speech in Houston:
This modern war is about more than who gets what. It is about who we are. It is about what we believe, and what we stand for as human beings. It is critical to the kinds of nations we shall be. It is a war for the soul of the world. And in this struggle, the values of the Republic of Indonesia are on my side. But the Maribyrnong and Victorian Australian Labor Party governments, in my country of birth, Australia, are on the other side.
Please pray with me for freedom, decency and civilised humanity.
They are dying in The West.
