Dear Editor,

The Plan-demic shutdown is far beyond the political spectrum of Left or Right...it is now all about RIGHT vs WRONG. It is about preserving our precious liberty and rights. Democrats and Republicans both are out of work, they both buy groceries, they both have monthly rent or mortgage payments or had a business shutdown and more.

Here is some additional info on political parties from a fairly creditable source: “However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” ~ George Washington

Burnett and Polk counties have far fewer cases of COVID-19 than some of the southern counties. Check out the Wisconsin county data…particularly for Burnett and Polk counties: https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/county.htm

Residents of Polk and Burnett counties do not need the governor to tell us to:

1. Wash hands with hot water & soap.

2. Practice social distancing.

3. Wear masks to help protect ourselves and others.

4. If sick, stay home and call the clinic

Our rights are being taken at an alarming rate and our economy, small businesses, jobs and retirement funds are being totally obliterated.

Take a minute to send your elected representatives a message to open up less affected counties in Wisconsin.

Share the following link with others you know.

Respectfully,

Leon Moe, Luck
