This is not about being pro or anti-vax.
The issue is much deeper than this question.
It is about our liberties. Our freedom that the Founding Fathers of America fought so hard to defend.
I believe that the government is slowly taking away our rights. Human rights and constitutional rights. They are becoming more and more strict about guns (second amendment), they have put restrictions on the first amendment (freedom of speech. Etc..), and they are becoming more and more controlling.
The government is supposed to be a system of organization for its people. They are not supposed to be at a higher level than us, they are just people. Leaders lead not control. When our government is able to make decisions without the consent of the people it should then be considered unjust.
It’s always striking when some of those who defend an unborn child’s “right to life” ignore the fact that the United States ranks 49th in infant mortality, according to the latest statistics.
Or in the fact that African American infant mortality is 2.5 that of Caucasians. Or that lower-income families of all ethnicities suffer much greater infant mortality in this country than their wealthier counterparts.
The next time you see another story about impoverished North Koreans and their seemingly mad dedication to their deluded leader and outmoded economic system, consider this: The average life expectancy for an African American in New Orleans is roughly the same as that of a North Korean.
It’s shorter than that of people in Colombia, Venezuela, of Vietnam. In our nation’s capital, the life expectancy gap between African American and white males is more than 13 years.
For poor whites the story isn’t much better. A 2005 study showed that life expectancy for poor white males in Appalachia and the Mississippi Valley is roughly the same as that of males in Mexico and Panama.
They can expect to live nearly four and a half years less than average white male nationwide. Opportunities for an affordable education are disappearing — and education correlates closely with longevity.
Then there’s Medicare. Studies showed that mortality among Americans aged 65 and older decreased by 13 percent after Medicare was created, and they spent 13 percent fewer days in the hospital.
The corporate-funded right is sponsoring a plan to replace Medicare with a voucher system that will provide less coverage for older Americans’ healthcare with each passing year. They also want to raise its eligibility age.
The studies show that these proposals would result in increased loss of life and more hospital days for older Americans.
Some of these processes were created as a legitimate response to physician overtreatment, itself encouraged by our privatized education and health financing systems. But they’ve turned into massive operations for delaying, frustrating, and thwarting attempts by patients and doctors to receive permission to provide necessary services.
Millions of Americans have to plead for needed treatment, then argue over a complex and error-prone system of copayments, deductibles, and medical bills denied for payment with incomprehensible explanations.
If they’re unable to devote hours to battling their insurer, or if they try and fail, they may then find themselves at the mercy of medical debt collectors whose own actions have been the subject of legal scrutiny and public criticism.
Long-standing assumptions built into our medical system deny virtually all Americans the right to affordable dental care, which is available in most other developed countries, while an antiquated and Puritanical attitude toward mental illness has been exploited to deny them adequate care for these conditions.
There are treatments which have unproven value, have unpleasant side effects, or which studies have shown to be over-used to provide financial gain to medical providers.
People have a right to know that, and to be protected from this kind of abuse. But the denial of covered services is an epidemic in American healthcare – and a massive assault on American freedom.
We have witnessed the raise of the medical police force.
CPS takes away children when their parents do not comply with the advice of the medical committee.
Kids were taken away because their parents did not want to vaccinate them. Or because they did not want to poison them with chemotherapy drugs.
We have less and less freedom when it comes to what we can with our bodies.
The latest example occurred on May 3, 2019.
Ms. Wilson of Florida introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce:
“To amend the Public Health Service Act to condition receipt by States (and political subdivisions and public entities of States) of preventive health services grants on the establishment of a State requirement for students in public elementary and secondary schools to be vaccinated in accordance with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, and for other purposes.”
She wants to force vaccination on all children.
What about those kids who have mitochondrial issues? What about those who had a reaction from previous vaccines? What about those who are at risk because of family history? What about those who have autoimmune conditions?
There are some many questions that need to be addressed before we even consider this bill.
I believe it would lead to catastrophic consequences if this bill passes.
And then we have those vicious attacks being performed on people who dare raising some questions about our medical system and its approaches.
George Washington said:
“If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter”.
We are witnessing an erosion of freedom of speech.
The big giant tech companies like FB, Google, Pinterest, Youtube, etc. are controlling what is being said.
They want to make sure that their agenda is not threatened by free of speech, by knowledge, by wisdom of parents who educate themselves on various topics.
Over a half century ago, U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower warned:
“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.”
In other words, he warned us about the power that the government will obtain in the future if we do not do anything.
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
1 Peter 4:8
“And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins”
Let’s love our neighbors like Jesus loves us! 😊
Have a wonderful Independence Day! 😊
