Sen. Rand Paul captures the Dr. Fauci syndrome. It’s a “Fatal Conceit” To Believe specialists Know What’s Best For Everyone.

Rand Paul — M.D. by the way — socks it to the career man who hasn’t survived without covering his options.

“Dr. Fauci, every day we seem to hear from you things we can’t do. But when you’re asked, ‘Can we go back to school?’? I don’t hear much certitude at all. ‘Well, maybe.’ ‘It depends.’

Guess what? It’s rare for kids to transmit this. I don’t hear that coming from you. All I hear is, ‘We can’t do this, we can’t do that, we can’t play baseball,’” Paul said.

“We shouldn’t presume that a group of experts somehow knows what’s best for everyone. Only decentralized power and decision-making based on millions of individualized situations can arrive at what risk and behaviors each individual will choose. That’s what America was founded on, not a herd with Washington telling us what to do and like sheep we blindly follow.”

Yes, a million choices by a million citizens vs. the guy with the microphone.
