Rand Paul spoke up on the tyrannical idea of forcing all citizens to be vaccinated that is gaining support in the United States currently.
In case you haven't been paying attention, there has been an unprecedented push by the mainstream media and government in 2019 to force all citizens to be vaccinated. This mandatory vaccine hysteria has so far been highly effective as governments across the country have proposed legislation to remove your right to informed consent.
Nonetheless, currently, across the country, there are over 100 bills filed in 30 different states proposing to expand, restrict or eliminate vaccine informed consent rights.
One of the states proposing legislation like this is Kentucky, who is represented by Senator Rand Paul. On Tuesday, Paul addressed the tyrannical idea of forced vaccinations during a Senate Health Committee hearing. His comments were spot on, logical and rational. However, the pro-mandatory vaccine crowd is tearing into him for it.
"As we contemplate forcing parents to choose this or that vaccine, I think it's important to remember that force is not consistent with the American story, nor is force consistent with the liberty our forefathers sought when they came to America," said Paul.
Indeed, forcing people to do things against their will—especially when it carries a medical risk or violates their religious beliefs—is the antithesis of a free society.
"I don't think you have to have one or the other, though. I'm not here to say don't vaccinate your kids. If this hearing is for persuasion I'm all for the persuasion. I've vaccinated myself and I've vaccinated my kids. For myself and my children I believe that the benefits of vaccines greatly outweighing the risks, but I still don't favor giving up on liberty for a false sense of security."
