Thinking about booking an upcoming vacation? I wouldn’t move forward with your plans just yet.
With the presidential election still playing out in the courts and an official winner yet to be declared, the entire travel industry could come to a standstill should Biden prevail.
In the name of “safety,” Biden has actually threatened to enact a national lockdown – meaning you wouldn’t be able to leave your home let alone travel.
Sounds insane, right?
I mean a national lockdown?
Well, just last year no one ever dreamed the government would ever have enough power to close churches and schools and limit private gatherings in homes.
Yet, here we are.
Looks like the “crazy conspiracy theorists” who warned of government overreach weren’t too far off, huh?
And now, uncertainty remains yet again with the potential of shutting down the entire American economy.
Of course, liberals deny it and accuse conservatives of spreading false information.
But seeing what Biden’s own coronavirus advisor Dr. Michael Osterholm actually said – it’s pretty clear Biden is strongly considering a nationwide lockdown.
“We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the wages, lost wages for individual workers, for losses to small companies, to medium-sized companies or city, state, county governments. We could do all of that,” he said. “If we did that, then we could lock down for four to six weeks.”
Of course, like a typical politician, Biden has gone back and forth with his words, leaving everyone off balance.
After all, Biden knows if he pushes the national lockdown too much, he’ll lose the average American.
Think about it – under his “logic” a state with a low number of COVID-19 cases would be put under the same restrictions as a hotbed locality.
How does that even make sense?
I mean, China literally boarded up people in their homes.
Is this what America the “land of the free” has become?
Love Trump or hate him, he has always let Governors decide the best policies for their own states instead of stepping in with a heavy hand and mandating national policies.
And to his credit, he’s even called out the Governors in states like Michigan and New York who have overstepped their boundaries with ridiculous COVID-19 “safety measures.”
Thankfully, a few conservative Governors have spoken out and are already saying that should Biden move forward with his proposal, they will not comply.
Governor Tate Reeves of Mississippi balked at the idea of Biden’s proposed 4-to-6 week lockdown and made it clear his state would not participate.
Fox News reported:
“The people of Mississippi can’t just go home, shut down their small business, shut down their restaurants, shut down their gyms … and just think that you can come back six weeks from now, flip a switch and everything’s gonna be fine,” he said during an afternoon news conference on Thursday. “That’s not the way the economy works.”
For now, it seems Biden has won the presidency, although things are still playing out in the courts.
There is no doubt voter fraud has occurred, but it’s to be determined whether this evidence can overturn the results and let Trump have another term.
In the interim, wise travelers are hesitant to book any travel plans with the looming threat of another lockdown only to ruin them – again.
Many folks are still recovering from having lost thousands of dollars when abrupt travel cancellations destroyed their spring break and summer vacation plans.
Personally, there’s no way I’d book future travel knowing how volatile the political climate is – especially if Biden keeps his power and decides to actually enact a nationwide lockdown.
It’s truly tragic.
Families are separated during the holidays, loved ones have died alone in nursing homes without the comfort of being surrounded by family.
And now Team Biden is threatening to further divide Americans (even across state borders and in local communities) by actually considering a total shutdown of America.
Our founding fathers would literally roll over in their graves if they could see what the country they worked so hard to form and preserve has become.
So my fellow Proud American Travelers – I’d recommend holding off before booking any long-term future travel plans.
And get ready, it’s bound to be a bumpy transition should Biden actually become our next President.
