Liberty is snatched away

Is there a connection between South Carolina’s U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s Verizon phone and forced vaccinations? It makes an interesting conversation.

So many people are furious over recent knowledge of the government’s intrusion into calls being made by Verizon users. Graham told us he’s not concerned because he’s not a terrorist. Well, I’m not a terrorist, but I am very concerned.

I’m not a constitutional attorney, either, but I do know that the U.S. Constitution guarantees its citizens certain rights, such as the right of privacy, the freedom of religion and the freedom of choice for medical treatments.

Ever since 9/11, the passing of the Patriot Act by Congress and its extension in 2011, the government has taken the opportunity to further impinge upon our constitutional rights. The excuse is always “protecting us from terrorists.” This has gone way too far. Every member of Congress who signed the Patriot Act should be held accountable.

Mandated, forced vaccines present a similar dilemma. Americans have the right to religious freedom, and all but two states allow for a religious exemption to vaccines. We also have the freedom to decide what drugs we allow to be injected into our bodies and those of our children.

Yet, pharmaceutical companies are churning out new vaccines faster than one can say, “Enough already.” Their goal and the government’s seems to be to make more vaccines for more people and then restricting our right to say “no.”

Vaccine bills are turning up in every state in this country. Some states have made it mandatory for children to present a doctor’s permission slip, besides their other exemption, to avoid vaccines. In New York, there’s a legislative bill calling for children to be allowed to be vaccinated for sexually transmitted diseases without a parent’s consent. The majority of state legislative bills limit our choices.

We need more conversation about wireless phones and vaccine rights, and we need action. We need action from every American who opposes government limitations of our constitutional liberties.
