My post under the heading of Eternal Vigilance
July 28, 2021
On Tuesday, July 27, 2021, U.S. President Joe Biden said, “If you’re not vaccinated, you’re not nearly as smart as I thought you were.” He further said, “We have a pandemic because of the unvaccinated and they are sowing enormous confusion. And the more we learn about this virus and the Delta variants, the more we have to be worried and concerned. And there’s only one thing we know for sure, if those other hundred million people got vaccinated, we’d be in a very different world.”
These statements, firstly, insult my intelligence and that of millions of other people. Secondly, he is placing blame for the continuation of the pandemic on those of us who have chosen not to get vaccinated. These are inappropriate, derisive, and divisive comments from our President. I remind him of his oath to defend the U.S. Constitution; which begins with the words, “We the people…” Our democratic ideals, embodied in the Constitution are based in the principle that the will of the people drives government, not the other way around.
In my previous post, I admitted that I was not vaccinated, and I stated my primary reason for that decision. That is, I and my wife have an established methodology, based on natural medicines, for protection against the worst effects of the virus. Because of this, we have decided for ourselves (not for everyone) that we need not accept the risks of any short or long-term health effects from these or future flu vaccines. For example, I am currently taking an anti-coagulant medication because I have a blood clot. Blood clots have been identified as a potential hazard from the vaccines. In addition, I am allergic, by testing, to one of the ingredients used in the vaccines – Polyethylene Glycol. There are major disease interactions with people who have intestinal disorders with this ingredient (https://www.drugs.com/disea…/polyethylene-glycol-3350.html). What are they supposed to do?
Biden is expected to announce tomorrow, he is implementing the mandate that all federal employees be vaccinated or undergo weekly testing for the COVID 19 virus (and its variants). Will his order also speak to future viruses and their variants? He will probably encourage other companies and organizations to follow up with his mandate.
Certainly, we make laws for our communal health and safety, as we should. But we make those laws through a process of public discussion through our representatives and enforced or rejected by our courts. There are no laws that require what we should inject into our bodies! In fact, some of our laws have established that no law can restrict what we can do with our bodies. In a truly democratic society, the responsibility for our lives, liberty and pursuit of happiness lies with each of us. If our government continues to dictate how we must maintain our health with respect to the current virus, what further liberties will they seek to take from us? These statements and actions by governments set dangerous precedent and setup a prolog to dictatorship.
