Dear Editor:

It seems we're faced with more fear, not only from misinformation, fraudulent reporting of statistics and leftist propaganda from the media but now also from a corporate cabal.

Now Walmart, Best Buy, Gerbes, et al. have succumbed to fear-mongering to force us consumers to wear masks to be a customer. I as a free American object unless there is a real reason, e.g. in a medical facility or nursing home, where it should be a real concern due to health issues. I guess as a free American I can still find a store that does not readily succumb to media-induced fear but will stand by the freedoms we are guaranteed as free and intelligent people to make our own choices and be responsible for our, and others safety.

I call your attention to a 7/17/2020 article by Nate Church: 'U.S. CEO Group Calls for National Corporate Mask Mandate' ( Quotes from the article: "Amid the second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic, The Business Roundtable (BRT) called on Friday for every company to require employee and customer masks." "BRT membership includes Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, American Airlines CEO Doug Parker, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins, General Motors CEO Mary Barra, and Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson."

Why would wearing of masks be such a concern to these multinational conglomerates? My guess is they all have an interest in protecting their continued obscene profits from doing business with China with which Donald Trump is jeopardizing with his tariffs and resistance to Chinese involvement in America's economy, security and culture!

The following website information one might consider before wearing a mask. In a free society, shouldn't we be given the opportunity to know all the facts about masks before we are tyrannically required to wear one? Not if the goal is to destroy the economy before the election!

The Democrat Party, their sycophants the mainstream media and now the complicit BRT which all have a vested interest in defeating Trump in November continue to push the narrative solely to destroy our Constitutional Republic.

God Save America!
