Ron Paul on Fox News Rundown podcast, 7/23/20:
“The governors should be told that it’s unconstitutional to forbid businesses from opening. Business should be allowed to open, and customers should be allowed to choose and make their own risks.”
“We’ve seen surges in coronaviruses in the midst of lockdown. New York had a lockdown and had 30,000 people die. New York had the worst death rate of any place in the world amid a lockdown so perhaps a lockdown didn’t do any good and perhaps a lockdown killed our economy, but didn’t do anything to stem the tide of the virus. So I see nothing to be admired in New York’s lockdown. I see a mountain of people who died, particularly in the nursing homes. I don’t think the lockdown did them any good. I think it killed the economy, but didn’t do any good for trying to contain the virus.”
“I think we’ve made a big mistake in the lockdown. We’ve crippled the economy.”
