Right, that's  why I said "Japan, South Korea, Germany, Australia, New
Zealand, Canada and many other countries managed to do what needed to be
done and none of them have a dictator". If that doesn't sound like I think
a dictator is the only thing that could help what does?

I said it before I'll say it again, your thesis is that the US Constitution
prevents the federal government from protecting its citizens from a
biological attack, if your thesis is correct then that is a devastating
indictment of the US Constitution!  But I have more respect for the
constitution than you do, I don't think that's where the problem is, I
think the problem is with a POTUS who lacks even a hint of human empathy
and is astonishingly stupid and amazingly ignorant.

Are you kidding? I reread 1984 the day after election day in 2016, it
seemed like a very good time to do so.
