Can you imagine the panic that will ensue if any of our troops contract Ebola? What if a ship becomes infected? Would it stay at sea while most die and until the survivors are deemed safe? Will returning planes be diverted to military bases where every soldier is a ticking time bomb that could infect friends, family, entire communities?
Mr. President, it’s time to tell the truth about Ebola. It is far easier to become infected than doctors or health experts are telling us. We are told becoming infected is an extremely remote possibility. Really? An NBC cameraman got Ebola without ever touching a sick patient, or entering the room of an Ebola victim. A nurse in Dallas got Ebola while wearing heavy protective gear. Over 200 doctors and nurses in Africa are dead despite wearing protective gear, washing hands with bleach, and knowing exactly what they were dealing with. Still they are powerless to stop it.
My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class”, focuses on economic murder. Ebola is the embodiment of this murder. An Ebola pandemic will kill thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of Americans. But separate from the human tragedy, the economic cost will overwhelm and bankrupt our country.
The cost of treating just one Ebola patient is beyond comprehension: special ambulances; isolation chambers; hazmat suits; weeks or months in the hospital; quarantines for every person that came into contact with the Ebola victim; decontamination teams for their homes; and even special handling of bodies for burial.
We’re talking about millions of dollars per Ebola patient. Multiply that times thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of victims. If Ebola gets loose in a crowded urban area, America’s economy will crumble.
Then there’s the death of tourism and commerce. Restaurants, hotels, airlines, shopping centers, movie theatres, sporting events, tourism and entertainment of all kinds will be shut down. Sports seasons will be cancelled. Americans will be trapped in their homes, frightened to go outside. Commerce will grind to a halt. Jobs lost by the millions. The economic devastation will be unimaginable. America’s economy (already on the ropes) will be in ashes. The result could be total economic ruin.
Yet knowing all this, Obama does nothing. He refuses to secure the border. He sends our young military men and women into the death zone to face an invisible killer. He even purposely chooses to refuse to do something so simple and common sense as ban flights and quarantine travelers from the Ebola Zone.
Our President is putting all of our lives, our families, our economic survival, at risk. He is gambling with our children, our jobs, the future survival of America. Yet none of this has to happen.
Why take that gamble? Why risk economic suicide? Why not take all possible actions and precautions to limit the possibility of a widespread epidemic?
Is Obama criminally insane? A madman? An ignorant, delusional fool? Or is he doing this purposely to overwhelm America’s economic system? Does it matter?
By the way, as America’s first case of Ebola transmitted on U.S. soil was announced, where was Obama? Playing his 200th round of golf as president.
Any American who isn’t blind can see something is very wrong. It’s time for patriots, political and military leaders to speak up. Our President is clearly reckless, irresponsible, incompetent or evil. Regardless of the reason, for the sake of our families, and our physical and economic survival, it’s time to remove Obama from office.
Now…before it’s too late. Before he gets us all killed.
