Trump Supporters Willing To Die To Help Economy: ‘When It’s My Time To Go, God’s Going To Call Me Home’

(This article first appeared on the Daily Boulder.) As many conservatives, including Donald Trump, push to reopen the country as soon as possible despite the consequences, Trump supporters are willing to give up their lives just to help the president’s economy.

According to The Daily Beast, Trump supporters are sparking a “protest movement” against social distancing restrictions.

North Carolina-based conservative activist Ashley Smith, who founded an anti-social distancing group called “ReopenNC,” said that she wasn’t worried about dying as long as it means the economy can reopen.

“When it’s my time to go, God’s going to call me home,” she tells the publication. “I think that to live is inherently to take risks. I’m not concerned about this virus any more than I am about the flu.”

Michigan activist Rosanne Ponkowski says that the lower-than-expected projected death toll from COVID-19 justifies reopening the economy, not taking into consideration that those numbers are lower due to the precautionary measures taken by closing down the country and practicing social distance.

“They were predicting huge numbers of people falling ill and dying, and that wasn’t the case,” she said.

Former Georgia Congressman Jack Kingston, a longtime ally of Trump, summed up conservative anger over the restrictions like this: “The liquor stores and dispensaries are open but I can’t buy a gun!”
