Mail-in ballots are the latest talking point for Democrats and their media allies. They claim this will keep voters safe from the Wuhan virus, even though it is burning itself out quite nicely on its own.
The surges in cases we are seeing across the country means that more and more of the population have been exposed to the virus. The vast majority are not getting sick; in fact most don’t even know they are ill and they are getting tested due to potential exposure, for return to work, travel, or simply because the tests are widely available and free under most insurance plans.
Once the virus tears through a population, there are fewer left to infect, and it goes away. A summer surge in positive tests brings us closer to herd immunity and this will likely burn itself out by fall. Normal colds and seasonal flu may complicate things, but that’s another story.
