Political Passports

“Your paper’s please.”

It is a phrase with historical Cold War overtones from the East side of the Iron Curtin. Such an introduction may find itself being exercised from sea to shining sea if the armies of government bureaucratic COVID-19 zealots get their way regarding digital vaccine passports.

 

Communist China that tracks its citizens and uses medical tyranny to enforce compliance was onboard as soon as a vaccine was available. 

I have yet to hear a cogent and convincing argument as to why COVID-19 is different from every other virus and every other pandemic. 

I have yet to hear a cogent and convincing argument as to why COVID-19 is different from every other virus and every other pandemic.  Why was it necessary to violate Constitutional rights and close down an economy, while censoring and ridiculing anyone who questions why?   

The average age of COVID death is 78, while the average life expectancy is the same.  Why should any healthy person be forced to take a vaccine where the recovery rate is 99.6%?  Asking children to get vaccinated when effectively 0% of those under 18 with COVID die, and the vast majority are asymptomatic, is totally unnecessary.    

There are far deadlier diseases than COVID that require nothing by way of vaccination.  How about a bar code on the forehead, or is that too much Mark-of-the-Beast?

In a dichotomy of the times, many that are against voter ID covet vaccine passports.  Showing an ID to vote supposedly suppresses.  A digital vaccine passport would require downloading an app to your pricy phone to prove you received a vaccine for a virus that is no deadlier than influenza, where you must be tested to know you contracted it.     

You must prove you are not the leper that everyone suspects.  It is the equivalent of “guilty until proven innocent.”  

While certain vaccines are required for overseas (ask any member of the Armed Forces) where some deadly diseases are more common, Americans have to understand such passports are being touted as a requirement for living within the land of the free. 

The Patriot Act and other post-9/11 surveillance legislation by Washington that is arguably unconstitutional have been abused beyond their initial Orwellian reach.  Recall how your Social Security number would be forbidden to be used outside of Social Security.  Now picture a central vaccination database administered by Uncle Sam – what could possibly go wrong? 

Since the length of vaccination efficacy is still unknown, when does your digital approval expire and who decides?  What about those who possess natural immunities having recovered already?

This not only violates our Constitution, HIPPA laws, and liberty regarding decisions about one’s health.  You must prove you are not the leper that everyone suspects.  It is the equivalent of “guilty until proven innocent.”  We should respect everyone’s wishes whether they want to get vaccinated or not. America was built on individual liberty and personal responsibility.

Americans are an autonomous people and would recoil at the thought of any restriction on our freedoms.  Today, we just shrug and continue to scroll away on our phone masked up like a preteen on Halloween.   

Vaccine passports is an anathema to our democratic principles and Constitutional rights.  It is an insidious overreach allowing for bureaucrats to leverage fear and control the debate and push unconstitutional policies.  This would serve to maintain the culture of shutdowns and restrictions, while violating one’s privacy, and act as a gateway for nefarious players for boundless abuse.  

Requiring passports would endorse more political malfeasance in a society already drowning in it.  The vaccine passport is not about easing restrictions but a coercive to vaccinate.  It has nothing to do with health or the science, but everything to do with power and control.

It would place access in the hands of a bureaucrat akin to a Twitter or Facebook content reviewer. Passports will create another breed of identity politics that is destroying society by pitting brother against brother, friend against friend, neighbor against neighbor.

Noncompliance would give unelected bureaucrats power to discriminate and fashion another political identity class.  For those who take the shot, a somewhat pre-COVID life; but for those who refuse, repression of goods and services. 

Americans are an autonomous people and would recoil at the thought of any restriction on our freedoms.  Today, we just shrug and continue to scroll away on our phone masked up like a preteen on Halloween.   

We all know what the road to Hell is paved with.

With every vaccine is informed consent. Passports would be coercion, not informed consent. 

Texas, Tennessee, Florida and Mississippi have nixed vaccine passports.

The rest of the union needs to follow suit.
