Senator Rand Paul, speaking rationally in an era where the Salem Witch Trial and the Middle Ages seem Aristotelian by comparison: “Without question, this virus has been devastating to so many families,” he said. “Kelly and I lost a good friend today, and we’re grieving from them, and our prayers go out to their family. But the thing is, is we ought to at least still use logic to try to figure out how we stop this. I think ultimately, the vaccine will be very successful, but I don’t see any evidence that crowd control, hand washing, standing six feet apart. All these things they tell you to do, closing down the restaurants, closing down the schools, there’s no real evidence that they’re changing the trajectory of the disease. If you look at the incidence of COVID, it’s going up like this — it’s going up exponentially despite all the mandates. So, those who say there is science just aren’t paying attention to it.”
