It has been said that when any governing body mandates Americans wear masks in public, this is socialism or a dictatorship.

My reply is, "Do you drive? Do you stop at stop signs? If so, then you're letting the government tell you what to do."

Wearing a mask is like obeying traffic signals. All parties are kept safe from hurting each other.

This isn't government heavy-handedness.

Masks are just a simple effort to help protect everyone.
