And that includes from themselves…
“The most basic duty of government is to defend the lives of its own citizens.”
It’snot often that I quote Donald Trump – and I don’t believe I’ve previously done so approvingly. Those words above, spoken in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, highlight, as nothing else the man ever did, that the first and foremost duty of government is to protect ALL its people from all its enemies both foreign and domestic.
Every US person – like it or not, believe it or not—is threatened in some ways by the covid virus and its emerging variants.
The many arguments quibbling about that are pure nonsense.
The ONLY fully effective remedy to the covid virus is HERD immunity which requires over 75 percent of the population to become immune. Knowledge of that fact by itself should be enough incentive for enough of our whole population to voluntarily get vaccinated.
For many reasons that is not happening.
That being the case our government has THE ULTIMATE DUTY to pass a LAW requiring ALL the people in the USA to get vaccinated for the benefit of ALL.
The House and Senate should do just that IMMEDIATELY, requiring vaccination within 60 days or be subject to a year in jail and/or a fine of $10,000.
And, the President should forthwith instruct the Justice Department and any other relevant federal agencies to enforce the law immediately.
Let’s stop blabbering and start jabbing.
