I get that during elections politicians have to say things to try and curry favor with certain people. But vaccines shouldn’t be part of that pandering. You’re actually hurting the health of America when you do that. I feel like I have to do this every four years, and it’s tiring.
And now, we’ve got three of the four current Presidential candidates saying questionable things about vaccines. Donald Drumpf’s been doing it for a while. Even Jill Stein (who’s a doctor) is doing it. And it’s the doctor candidates who do this who disappoint me the most. Gary Johnson is the least objectionable (I suppose) for just opposing mandatory vaccines.
There are many issues to run on. A lot of them concern matters for which there’s a lot of room for debate. Vaccines aren’t one of them. Let’s just stop. Please.
