there was a poll that said most republicans said it was an acceptable loss. most dems said it's not.
i would say it is an acceptable loss in the bigger picture. but it still didn't need to be that way. if people wore masks and social distanced and such better, we could be like other countries where they didn't have such a high rate of death. one thing i dont know, though, is how their economies look, or how open for business their economies are.
