    Why did we treat Covid19 different than the flu? Both are communicable diseases. More people seem to die every year from the flu. Covid19 deaths haven't even reached the levels of yearly deaths of the regular flu.

    I believe the simple answer is, Covid19 is, and was a real health threat, but a chance to politicize and weaponize a situation for a political agenda.

    I think the facts bear this out. Personally, I think the there was mass destruction of our economy to further a political agenda, and people's lives were disrupted for no reason that makes any sense to anyone with any common sense.

    They can agree with it all they want, but science and facts do not agree with it.

    Same.....and, if Abbott wins the GOP Primary, I will not vote for him. I won't vote for the Democratic candidate either....mostly because there wouldn't be much difference b/t the Dem and Abbott at this point.

    If there's a third-party candidate that will follow the US and Texas Constitutions, I'll vote for that candidate. If not, I just won't vote for governor. I'm not playing the "lesser of two evils" game anymore....

    Your choice. But refusing to vote for a republican is essentially a vote for a democrat so when the next gun legislation comes up that we all want to see pass......
    I voted for Perot. Clinton ended up president. You may feel better in the ballot box knowing you voted your heart, but not your brain.

    I'm not sure where you get that information from but here is what I found on the topic.

    Flu deaths last year were 80,000 and the worst ever in history. Range is normally from 12,000 to 56,000 before that. And those numbers are for a full year.

    Chinese virus has already killed over 150,000 in USA in about 4 months time and with huge mitigation efforts.

    So, I just wonder where you get the numbers that say flu is worse than the Chinese virus.

    I agree with you to a point but with Texas turning blue, is not voting for governor truly the answer that conservatives should make during the coming elections?

    And you believe those numbers? It's already been proven too many times that deaths that were not related to Covid19 were still being listed as attributed to Covid19 as cause of death. Those number of deaths IMO are false.

    Feel free to believe whatever you want. I don't.

    And also, look at where all the doom and gloom crowd were predicting the number of deaths to be. In the millions! Never happened, and so they had to manufacture the numbers and inflate them to try and reach those predictions and still they couldn't.

    Texas.

    IF there is a viable Republican and conservative candidate that I think can oppose Abbott, that MIGHT be the direction I will go. But if not, sad to say, I will probably vote for Abbott again.
