Mandates are given and laws made for the welfare of all the people.
What if only ½ the people stopped at stoplights and stop signs and one could choose whether to do so or not?
What if only ½ the people were required to not smoke in a building open to the public?
What if only ½ the people in a car wore seatbelts and the car crashed?
What if only ½ the people were required to go through airport security and people were free to decide if they wanted to or not?
What if our president or governor refused to mandate or set an example?
What if only some people wear masks in a pandemic? (Oh, that’s the case, isn’t it?)
Please add you own “What ifs” in reply. . .
