The Loud Libertarian View ~ CoronaVirus: President Trump is going Maginot Line, when he should be going Ardennes!
I would bet cold, hard currency, that if President Trump was given a chance to turn back the clock and take a Mulligan on his entire CoronaVirus response, he would do what I've been saying he should've done, all along: Identify those most vulnerable, focus your resources entirely on protecting them, and leave the rest of us to run our businesses and live our lives as we see fit, without this idiotic inference into our lives. Had he done so, he probably would've saved a lot of lives, and the economy would've kept raging along. He's a great President...but he sure dropped the ball on this one!
For those who're unfamiliar: France attempted to defend herself against Nazi invasion by spreading her forces out along the highly fortified Maginot Line, and, once the War began, by coordinating with Britain to extend that line, with armed forces, to the English Channel. The Nazi response? A concentrated assault through the Ardennes Forest. France fell in 6 weeks.
President Trump would do well to heed the lessons of History.
