Better start rounding up the Amish. We can get to everybody else later.
Christie’s reply was better - not all vaccinations come with the same public health benefit and parents should be informed accordingly.
And he drives the final nail in the coffin that is his 2016 nomination hopes
If Dr. Carson were serious, he should've run for HOR or US Senate in this last election/
Government is force.
How much force should the government apply to you and your children to enforce this?
Removal of children from “uncaring”, “neglectful” households?
Forcible vaccination at gun point?
Summary execution of non-compliant parents?
You tell me...
I don’t know enough to make an educated statement.
I can, however, say that a man who uses the point of a gun and the Federal law behind it to force a person to receive a shot does not believe in individual freedom or rights.
Aside from one speech, Carson has shown me nothing to get excited about.
The fact that an ostensibly conservative and Christian candidate could say this and also be a homeschool hero is stunning.
If true, there would be little or no meaningful free exercise of religion.
You cannot refuse an injection by a third party?
Health insurance is mandatory and now any injection that science can statistically defend as improving public health cannot be individually resisted.
I hope he re-thinks this.
Why can’t the government make a convincing public case rather than using force in the manner prescribed?
It is stunning that we are even having this conversation.
That he has his head in rectal defilade regarding the 2nd Amendment was sufficient for me to cross him off my list of persons of interest...
Time to move on from Dr. Ben...Brilliant surgeon...Presidential timber? Not so much...
Ah, the “public good!” Isn’t that the reasoning that has brought us Obamacare, Michelle’s lunch program and gun control?
When the “public good” is defined by anyone except the common sense of the individual and the infallible Word of his Creator; evil insues. The laws of the United States have always been based on Scripture...until recent times.
Dr. Carson has taken the first step away from those values and I suspect it won’t be the last one.
Quote from Carson:
Certain communicable diseases have been largely eradicated by immunization policies in this country and we should not allow those diseases to return by foregoing safe immunization programs, for philosophical, religious or other reasons when we have the means to eradicate them.
Paul’s comments, on the other hand, are all over the place.
He’s for vaccines, they are great he says, and I am sure he believes that and knows how important vaccinations are and have been to our country and all mankind.
Yet Paul tries to play both sides of the fence because he knows a lot of his supporters are of the loony liberal persuasion so he comes across as incoherent.
Dr. Ben Carson should move to North Korea.
He just lost my vote.
If you believe in the Vaccine, then take it and you have nothing to fear.
Only an Authoritarian control freak would force someone against their will.
Yep, he gets wiped off of my list of possible candidates to vote for.
We are moving into a libertarian age, saying things like this is not going to sell.
Poisoning and sterilizing our kids under the the facade of “immunizations”.
And some FReepers think Carson is a Freedom loving American? LOL!
Carson states yet another reason why he can kiss my ass.
This guy is weirder than rand Paul
So, what then, Ben? Vaccinations at the point of a gun? Do the parents and/or children get thrown in jail indefinitely until they agree to be injected? Or do you just send a couple of big Gestapo goons to their door and hold them down whilst they’re injected? (BTW, I have a multi-stage RO system that filters out pretty much everything, including fluorine. I’m wondering if that’s OK with you?)
0bama looks you right in the eye and says:
“you must inject this into your children. it’s for their own good and the good of the community”
what would you do?
