Here in Vermont our biweekly briefings given by Governor Phil Scott are currently promoting vaccinations. Like it or not, the vaccines are experimental at best and have no extensive track record or long-term data to support them.
Dr. Simone Gold and the American Frontline Doctors are by no means the only medical professionals raising concerns about vaccination in the United States or globally for that matter. But one thing they all have in common is they are being censored and purged from this discussion, when they should be brought into it in a much more inclusive and constructive way. This purging of concerned professionals places our leaders in a much smaller box, restricting their parameters of operation to a limited number of options controlled by those with a vested interest — and granted immunity from prosecution if their products harm those encouraged to take the medicine.
Is it wrong to suggest we look for solutions throughout the medical profession before forfeiting the right of informed consent? Should we be exclusively turning it over to a limited number of experts our leaders must rely on for policy decisions?
Perhaps our political leaders have been handed a deck for a particular solution; however, most leaders are ill equipped to reshuffle that deck before it is dealt.
So far we are not being forced to take the medicine — or are we?
