Mandate Wars

michael,

When health freedom is under attack, that means the people on the front line are taking hits. You have probably experienced some heated conversations around the holiday table, tension, separations or trouble at a job or school. 

Americans are divided. We’re getting dizzy from vaccine mandate roulette. This court says yes, this court says no, the employer says do it anyway, and you just want your freedom to choose what happens to your body, your family, and your livelihood.

There’s an easy way to fix this: State officials can just say no to mandates. But they need your help. 

It’s time to put a face to the false narrative about the unvaccinated. Your story can educate our lawmakers about what’s really happening with mandates in America today.

What’s Your Vaccine Discrimination Story?

“Everyone must eat tomatoes on Tuesdays, for the health of our nation.”

How would Americans respond to an announcement like this from the White House?

It wouldn’t be pretty. We would be up in arms, declaring our independence. “Yuck! I don’t like tomatoes!” or, “I’m allergic to tomatoes.” We’d hear, “I’d rather have a non-GMO tomato but they’re not available, what do I do now?” and cries of, “Who’s going to pay for my tomatoes?” And, simply but powerfully, “You can’t tell me what to put in my body.”

But what if the President added, “Anyone who can get a doctor’s note saying tomatoes make you sick, or prove tomatoes are against your religion, gets a pass.”

Phew! Dodged a bullet there, right? No problem! I can just claim my exemption. But….I’m not religious. And I don’t get sick, I just don’t like them, or they don’t make me “sick enough” for a doctor to put their license on the line for what my body is telling me. And I don’t think I need a tomato to be healthy; I eat lots of spinach! So, do I lie about my beliefs? Do I forge a medical note? Do I become a criminal in order to do what I know is best for my body and my conscience? Is this America?

Back to reality: So, what’s the problem with a vaccine mandate if you can claim an exemption?

My dear Health Freedom Fighter, you know the answer: Everything.

Let’s break it down.

#1: Mandates Cause Discrimination.

You’ve probably experienced vaccine discrimination yourself.

The Mandate-and-Exemption style of law fosters discrimination, by design. The government claims the power to make everyone do (or not do) a thing. A minority of people can go through a government-controlled process to ask permission to have that thing not apply to them. If they’re granted permission, they’re marked as different. Remember the song, “One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just isn’t the same?” (Big Bird used to teach useful lessons about discrimination before he sold out.) When you exercise an exemption, you are marked as different, and you are treated differently by your government, your employer, and your school. That difference opens the door and encourages your colleagues, friends and family to do the same, because people are hard-wired for the safety of being in the majority. Exemptions are not enough to protect Americans.

#2: Mandates Hurt Businesses.

Mandates not only hurt individuals but businesses as well. Because Americans cannot sue the government, the vaccine maker, or the person who administers the vaccine, employers are left with liability and loss. People are leaving their careers over mandates, taking all of their years of knowledge and experience with them and causing worker shortages. Employers face expense because of having to train new employees, lost employee time due to getting the jab, injury, unpaid leave for noncompliance, medical supplies, and more. Employers will face lawsuits if employees are injured by the mandated vaccine, since there is no one else to sue.

#3: Mandates Are Power Grabs.

Wanna talk government gaslighting? Fighting for the right to refuse something implies the thing can be done in the first place. When we agree we have the right to say “No,” we also agree the government has the power to make us ask.

When we allow government (or employers or schools) to tell us how to live in our body or align with our spirituality, as long as some people may be allowed to opt-out, we lose the right to be the decision-maker for our own body, and for our children. Who can say no, and under what conditions? Where is the line drawn when your “No” is not honored? Can you say “No” without needing to justify it, or is recognition of your “No” conditioned upon whether it is judged appropriate? What if absolutely no one qualifies for the opt-out; is the law still valid if the option is lip service? (You can ask any midwife who practices in Delaware about a law like this, chilling laws with phony options get put on the books until they are fought.)

Governments only have the power we give them. And they will take it all, while they tell us to sit back and enjoy the ride.

A child of the peace and antiWar movements, a Truther with self-diagnosed Opposition Defiance Disorder, formerly politically liberal tho now politically marooned, and Post-Doomer, on any issue, I trend to the conspiracy side, sort through the absurd, fantastical and insane, until I find firm ground usually located just the other side of the censorship firewall of propaganda and orthodoxy, dogma, and other either / or thinking.
