Fire Fauci

Former Rep. Ron Paul on Thursday called for the firing of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease specialist leading President Trump’s medical response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Mr. Paul, a retired doctor who ran three times for president during his decades in politics, also called Dr. Fauci a “fraud” and encouraged Americans to “quit listening to him.”

I’m with him. I bet his son, U.S. Senator Rand Paul, is too. Dr. Fauci is a brilliant hero to some. The ugly truth is that we don’t yet know how enormous an economic depression we are facing, and the toll it will take on human lives. A civilization like ours cannot withstand a 40-50 percent contraction in GDP, which according to mainstream economists, we could be looking at from this two-month shutdown alone. To say nothing of the 1 or 2 year shutdown now being floated by Democrats, which could perhaps kill millions. At what point will we start considering these people not just fakes and incompetents, but murderers? In due course, I suppose.
