Forced Vaccination and Vaccine Passports
I will not get into the theories of where COVID-19 came from, whether or not it is an engineered bio-weapon, the documentation of adverse side effects from the shot itself, etc. I will simply point out that
- the extreme pressure and propaganda to “get the shot”;
- a refusal to even consider the merits of natural immunity;
- the suppression of all other drugs (even when they are effective);
is all for a virus with a 99.xx% survival rate. This simply doesn’t make sense!
This pandemic is clearly being used to promote fear as a means of establishing totalitarian controls. The coercion through threats of job loss, threats of fines, and even imprisonment in some places is the most egregious widespread violation of liberty we have seen since the Nazis performed medical experiments in their concentration camps on the prisoners. James Madison, the father of the Bill of Rights said: “Crisis is the rallying cry of the tyrant." The founders understood this use of crisis in their time and the leftists are using it today. As Rahm Emanuel, Barrak Obama’s chief of staff, expressed in an interview regarding the 2008 financial crisis saying, “Never let a crisis go to waste.”
Even though Iowa has passed legislation that is labeled as a “ban” on vaccine passports (see HF889), the exemptions that were included in it betrayed its title. I talked to more than one legislator about this who admitted that they did not like the bill but voted for it anyway. When asked why, the responses I got included, **Leadership asked me to vote for it.”, “I voted for it to get along.”*, and “It is better than nothing.” However, in my opinion, the bill was worse than no bill at all because it actually gave a green light to all employers to require vaccine passports if they chose to.
Immediately after the bill passed, people’s jobs began to be threatened and the legislature began to realize what a bad bill it was. Then in a special session to approve redistricting, another bill was rushed through to supposedly “fix” the first one. But it was simply a band-aid which did little to stop people from being fired for refusing the vaccine. It simply makes people who are fired eligible for unemployment benefits and broadened the use of religious and medical exemptions. There are many other negative issues that could arise out of this attempt to fix a bad bill. The word is that there will be further attempts to fix this in the legislative session which convenes in January 2022.
I am flatly opposed to vaccine mandates and passports. It is government’s job to protect the right of every individual to refuse vaccines without fear of being punished or canceled. What we need is a simple blanket ban on mandatory vaccines. Some are arguing that business owners have rights too, so we can’t just do a blanket ban on vaccine passports. But no business or organization has the right to control the personal health choices of another person and ruin their livelihoods.
As alluded to above, there are many foundational issues unaddressed in this debate. This is why weighing the freedom of business owners against the freedom of individuals is not comparing apples to apples. After all, if the vaccine is so good, government shouldn’t have to force it and those who get it shouldn’t have to worry about exposure to those who don’t. Unaddressed issues include:
- the ineffectiveness of the shot,
- the shot is experimental,
- the large number of those who have been injured or died from the shot,
- the effectiveness of natural immunity,
- the suppression of effective inexpensive treatments,
- laws about informed consent being ignored, and more.
This is one of the issues where we have seen the failure of government to protect our God-given rights. Please use the contact form and let me know what is important to you.
