Americans continue to be told that health “experts” are the end-all and must be listened to about COVID-19, despite how damaging their advice turns out to be.
Thus far, the only real mitigation strategies submitted by “the experts” are as follows: shutdowns, face mask mandates, social distancing, and now there’s even talk of mandating the COVID-19 vaccine.

Earlier this year, multiple doctors penned an op-ed in USA Today, stating that folks who refuse the coronavirus vaccine ought to face penalties and bans from engaging in society.
No one, at this point, can deny that health officials and “experts” have repeatedly moved the goalposts on when Americans can expect a return to normal life. “15 days to slow the spread” has now converted to talk of masks and social distancing well into 2021 and 2022, documents Washington Examiner.

Shifting the Goalposts with Each Passing Day

Just last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci stated that 2022 is likely to arrive before Americans see a full return to normal. Moreover, Fauci maintains that this normal will happen in stages, rather than all at once. The controversial health “expert” is now supportive of a nationwide mask mandate, a proposal that he once branded as authoritarian.

Johns Hopkins University’s Dr. W. David Hardy is also telling a similar story. According to Hardy, normal life could return in the second or penultimate quarter of 2021 if enough COVID-19 vaccines are available; additionally, Hardy believes that mask-wearing may become part of everyday life, especially during flu season.

Where Do Americans Stand on All This?

There’s no doubt that some people in this country are willing to social distance, wear masks, and have businesses shut down or under draconian restrictions until the end of time.
On the other hand, there are many Americans who view 2021 and 2022 as unacceptable timeframes for a return to normal. Countless folks in the nation are ready to get back to normal life now and this readiness is evidencing itself in various capacities.

Many people are doing things like going out, attending large Trump rallies, and frequenting bars. Pushback against mask mandates continues to ensue, with some businesses even trying to distance themselves from face-covering requirements.
Other Americans have concerns that the mitigation strategies being promoted by the “experts” and (mostly) Democrat politicians are Trojan horses for control and the erasure of American freedoms as we know them.
Would you be willing to wait until 2021 or 2022 for a return to normal? Do you believe that health officials have an interest in protecting the public or controlling the masses? Let us know your candid thoughts in the comments section below!
