Vaccine Mandates - The Real Story Behind The Protests

While I believe that everyone should get the Covid vaccine unless there is a good medical or religious reason not to do so,  I am opposed to any kind of Mandate that would require the shot to keep a job, or have medical insurance coverage.  Clearly, many adults get vaccines to prevent flu, pneumonia, shingles and a variety of other serious diseases; but we do so of our own volition.  And, none of this is a requirement for employment, but the real question is could they be in the future.  If the Covid vaccine is a requirement for employment to work for a company with 100 or more employees by the President's Executive Order,  why not all the rest.  

More important, I could see emboldened medical insurance companies making vaccines a requirement for medical coverage to prevent illnesses that would require doctor visits and or hospitalization.  As it is now, children are required to be vaccinated against 8 childhood diseases to attend schools.  There are some people who home school for this very reason.  

However, if someone does not want to get the Covid or any other vaccine for good medical or religious reasons, they should not be forced to do so to hold a job.  They could be offered the options of regular testing if they must be on location to do the job, or working from home.  Literally firing someone for refusing to get the Covid vaccine is an over reach in power that is intolerable. 

There is a bigger picture in all of this.  If people can be forced to be vaccinated to hold a job, why not insist that they give up their guns, or stop supporting President Trump, or other conservatives to hold a job.  The Covid vaccine mandate is a slippery slope.  We are learning that National Socialist Fascists are weaponizing agencies of the federal government against their opponents.   When parents protesting at school board meetings are now called domestic terrorists requiring that the FBI get involved in prosecuting them, we see the power of an uncontrolled Fascist government.  

It is Germany in 1933.  Heil Biden Garland.  We should fear that the Covid vaccine mandate could lead to other mandates.  Give them an inch and they will take a yard.  As Ronald Reagan used to say, "we are just one generation away from losing our freedoms.   We can't let that happen.
