It’s become increasingly clear that many on the political left have been skeptical for years about the government’s claims about vaccines. While this site tilts conservative/libertarian (and anti-neocon), I’m more than happy to share with our readers the much needed discussion that occurred today on Democracy Now. Democracy Now! is about as left as you can get in the independent media world. Don’t let anyone tell you this is a red vs. blue issue. Take a listen:
Folks on the left are jumping all over Rand Paul for daring to say vaccines are (and should continue to be) voluntary. I wonder if the socialists over at HuffPost or DailyKos know this quote from a certain man occupying the White House?
We’ve seen just a skyrocketing autism rate. Some people are suspicious that it’s connected to the vaccines…The science right now is inconclusive, but we have to research it.” –Barack Obama, Pennsylvania Rally, April 21, 2008.
