Everyone should have an opinion and allowed to voice that opinion. Nope the USA is not world. Varying actions on Covid is expected. Why not discuss.My, do you ever look outside your country? There are dozens of countries around the world with totally different kind of political leadership who have a lot stricter rules than the US, pretty much every country wants as much of their population to be vaccinated. It's just incredible how political this topic must be in the US and how you keep on framing this as a question of liberals or republicans. You can look at this from several angles and maybe in the end it will turn out that vaccinations weren't as helpful as hoped for, but this sounds like the US is the world and it's all about left-right. That's, sorry, bs. If you really believe the call for masks and vaccinations is a plot of your government to control you, help Dan Brown write his next thriller instead of spreading these views online.
