The ages of Candidates for President of the United States listed below are as of September 2020 (youngest at top). Please note that only candidates on the ballot in three or more states in 2020 are listed.
Yours Truly is the third youngest of 14 listed, with former Vice President Biden the oldest and President Trump the second oldest. Now look at the chart at bottom graphically demonstrating how mortality from COVID-19 increases dramatically after age 50, and tell me COVID-19 and Presidential age is not a national security issue.
And potential death is just the start of it. The doctor who treated British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called COVID “this generation’s polio,” and keep in mind that it was polio that put FDR in a wheelchair. Even worse, do you want a President who becomes mentally incapacitated by COVID (and COVID can infect the brain)? A forgotten fact of history is that Woodrow Wilson’s own doctor diagnosed as the Spanish Flu the illness which left him bedridden for the last year of his Presidency, and we can arguably trace the origins of World War II to that illness. From the looks of it, I am the only Presidential candidate this year who has ever run a marathon (much less a 50-mile ultramarathon) and I just hiked 14,000-foot Pikes Peak in Colorado on Labor Day.
