Dr. Ben Carson: No "Philosophical" Or "Religious" Exemptions For Vaccinations ^ | February 3, 2015 | Breitbart News

Posted on 02/03/2015 8:15:43 AM PST by Biggirl

Dr. Ben Carson, a likely 2016 GOP presidential contenders, believes there should be no “philosophical” or “religious” exemptions for vaccinations. “Although I strongly believe in individual rights and the rights of parents to raise their children as they see fit, I also recognize that public health and public safety are extremely important in our society,” Carson told The Hill.

So what do you think happened to Polio and Smallpox? Think they went away by themselves?

The ignorance on this thread is stunning. And no, it has nothing to do with global warming, of which there is NO evidence. However there is plenty of evidence that vaccinations work, and save lives.

And I’ve had all mine, and I’m fine.

“we should not allow those diseases to return by foregoing safe immunization programs,”

And there you have it ladies and gentlemen. Dr Ben Carson does not “get it” from a philisophical perspective. As smart as he is, we know he has the capability, however he has not studied enough on the subject.

The bottom line is that this measles outbreak was not caused “by foregoing safe immunization programs,” it was caused by the flood of the worlds poorest, disease ridden, most illiterate children crossing our southern border and not being subjected to any screening.

Those who so easily forget such recent history, are not valid to be presidential candidates...

“Nope, Romney would have been a breath of fresh air in this stagnant environment.”

Suuure thing skippy. Is that why Romney has expended much more effort trashing Conservatives and Tea Party candidates than he has in opposing Obama’s policies? Is that why he has stood with the crony capitalist wing of the party for Amnesty?

Yep, such a relief from Obama’s amnesty and trashing of conservatives and tea partiers.

Hey I use to think like you until I did the research.

My Grandfather was of 3 General Practitioners in a a small town outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. So trusting the doctors and medical establishment was in my blood and DNA.

It was not until I got so pissed off at someone that was challenging me that I did the research, and was shocked what I found out.

Just to give you a little of my background I come from a family of Doctors, Nurses, Attorneys teachers and Engineers. I have had many discussions, debates, etc with them.

My point being is I don’t even like having this debate, but it’s my moral obligation to warn you vs. just sitting back and doing nothing.

If you want stay ignorant, then you go right ahead.

Speaking of ignorance....

1) How many Americans have died from the measles the last 10 years?

Answer = 0

2) How many Americans have died from this vaccine?

Answer = Over 100

3) What does the CDC say is the rate of dying from measles without take vaccine.

Answer = 0.003

How many people die a year from prescription drugs?

Answer = Over 100,000 every year

So on one hand we have the measles which the media and politicians don’t ever tell you how it just showed up. Hint... It’s the open borders just like Ebola which they ignored! Oh but NO MENTION of that right????

So we all these scare tactics when 0 Americans have died over the last 10 years from this, and AT THE VERY SAME TIME the media and politicians ignore over 100,000 dead people from prescription medication every year.

You have to ask yourself why would the media and politicians blame the non-vaccine takers of a disease that has 0 deaths over the last 10 years instead of the open borders that have brought floods of illeagal immigrants and things like bed bugs and Ebola?

They are feeding you a line of bull. Well imagine that??? This is just like the bull of “you can keep your doctor”, “your premiums will go down” and “there are no death panels”. Did you forget about Gruber and how they lied to the public??

You are believing on the record certified liars. That ignorance and how brain washed, the failure to put two and two together is absolutely astounding to me.

Look at the facts, and get off all the fake orgasmic hype from the lying politicians and media.

Oh and newsflash.... The only people that were for this type of medical tyranny was Hitler, Stalin and Mao. That’s side you are picking and you are not even asking, who, what, when where and why?

I promise you do the research at the opposition. Then just look at all the commercials in fox. Many being from pharmaceutical companies. Do you really think they would be fair and balanced about this debate when it could affect their bottom line? Follow the money!

You are being Grubered by the lying politicians and media. You are falling for it hook, line and sinker.

The polio vaccine created paralysis. It just recently did again in India. Over 53,000 cases!

So you rather force people, against their will, to take a vaccine that has killed more people than the actual measles?

At the very same time ignore over, 100,000 dead from medical prescriptions every year?

So you believe the politicians and the media that it’s the non vaccinated that caused this and not the open borders???

If measles vaccines confer measles immunity, then why do already-vaccinated children have anything to fear from a measles outbreak???

If vaccines work so well, then why did Merck virologists file a False Claims Act with the U.S. government, describing the astonishing scientific fraud of how Merck faked its vaccine results to trick the FDA?

If vaccines don’t have any links to autism, then why did a top CDC scientist openly confess to the CDC committing scientific fraud by selectively omitting clinical trial data after the fact in order to obscure an existing link between vaccines and autism?

His exact statement, published on the website of his legal counsel:

“My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”

If mercury is a neurotoxic chemical (which it is), then why is it still being injected into children and pregnant women via vaccines? Why does the vaccine industry refuse to remove all the mercury from vaccines in the interests of protecting children from mercury?

The U.S. government tells us that lead in water is BAD, but mercury in vaccines is GOOD!

If vaccines are so incredibly safe, then why does the vaccine industry need absolute legal immunity from all harm caused by its products?

If vaccines work so well to prevent disease, then why do some vaccines (like the chickenpox vaccine) openly admit that they can cause the spread of chickenpox?

If vaccines are perfectly safe, then why did at least 13 people recently die in Italy after being vaccinated?

If vaccines are backed by solid science, then why do some vaccine inserts openly admit they are backed by no clinical trials?

Geez. Put down the Kool-Aid. Big Picture......Vaccinations that have been widely used for over a hundred years have vastly improved health. My kids no longer have to fear rubella, polio, smallpox, measles, and who knows what else. Better living through science. Yeah, it happens.

Reading your post would make someone believe we’re all ticking time bombs thanks to the scourge of vaccines foisted on us by pharmaceutical companies and the government.

So what happened to Polio? and smallpox? You mean they’re not really gone? There are hidden epidemics right here in the USA that are being kept hidden from us? Gosh... I had no idea.

You did not answer any of my questions. You are just 100% complete denial. Moreover, you believe certified on the record liars because you are gullible enough to believe the government loves you. Nevertheless did you Polio vaccine you have been pushing creates Paralysis? Over 53,000 in India alone last year. In 2013 it was over 47,500 people thanks to polio vaccine you love so much. So why you are going into hyper orgasm over measles? Here is another fact for you. Yes you are brainwashed!

Sorry, not to be callous, but I couldn’t give a damn about India. That place is a total mess.

What about HERE. The USA. How many people HERE are paralyzed because of the polio vaccine?

Before the measles vaccination, thousands died EACH YEAR.

Now, after the vaccination, with a much higher population, we’re down to 10 per year. A good trade, don’t you think?

I can honestly say, you’re the only person I’ve ever encountered who thinks the polio vaccination was a bad thing. I take it not a lot of people talk to you at parties....

Hey genius focus....

That’s the vaccine you are saying is the best thing since slice bread.

It’s creating mass paralysis.

The vaccine does not care what are your politics or what you think. It just creates paralysis.

I don’t understand why you think the Feds should force people to take a vaccine when the only people that have died from the measles are those that took the vaccine.

Furthermore, if you take the vaccine then what are you worried about???

Finally, how come there is no mention of our Open Borders bringing this, the bed bugs and Ebola into the country.

Instead you take the Feds side to blame non-vaccinated instead of illegal immigrants that are bringing it into the country.

Oh but the Feds want to keep the borders wide open for the illegals to flood in with all their diseases and instead blame Americans. Ridiculous!

You are a Tyrant if you believe in force vaccination against people’s will.

Did I say that? I did not. If you don’t get vaccinations, its no skin off my nose. But if you argue that vaccinations are bad, you’re a fool.

Winston Churchill said it best:

“A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject.”

I make it a habit not to argue with fanatics. Its exhausting.
