It does not matter if you are a republican or a democrat or an independent or
nothing at all. Some take the vaccine and some don't. There is no such thing
as a particular political group not taking the vaccine.
Yes it matters - I'm not talking about the news on CNN or any media with political interests, but statistics from sources which have no vested interest in politics. Even Republican leaders made the statements themselves and are aware of the issue. A lot of things in America have turned political - the whole pandemic has turned into politics - A lot of Republican states have low vaccination compared to anything else - yes it is political - The whole election was one big sham, Republicans lost their bloody election over someone who should have normally been the least likely to win, and the least capable of running a country other than making blank promises he can never keep and over spend money - so why is it that many Republicans do not want the vaccine ? Trump made the impossible happen, everybody said he was crazy to think a vaccine could be made available by end of year, yet it happened. if Trump was in power, only he would have the balls to use unconventional methods to get results, not some SOFTY socialist of the far left - so what are Americans up to anyway, do they think that by not taking the vaccine they will sabotage Joe Biden's plans and presidency ? They are just sabotaging ALL Americans !! Of course, God forbid if all of America is vaccinated and situation gets back to normal, who will take credit, Joe Biden will scream victory - it's ironic, he would NEVER have had the balls to put enough pressure to get things done, to put pressure on the Fed's Jerome Powell, etc. Do Americans think they are punishing Biden or Biden voters by not taking the vaccines ? Of course the whole damn thing is politics Valerie, people should set aside their rivalry and BULLSHIT and think farther than their snotty nose and think of others too. People don't realise how a bunch of selfish prats they are, if they get infected, they might not give two shits, but they can infect others, friends, family - one has to be cold blooded to not give a shit.
Let's see now, even Trump tried hard to encourage Americans to get the vaccine, a vaccine he worked hard for, but on the other hand he chickened out a little by saying he supports 100% people's freedom - you see, what is that ? POLITICS - He does not want to come across as shoving the vaccine - big mistake - he has to SHOW that the situation is far more serious than people think. You see people are playing the politics card on BOTH sides, Republicans and Democrats alike - it's time to put this barrel of horse manure aside FOR NOW, and focus on this war, people should be working together regardless of their preferences, and LATER when the pandemic is over, they can resume killing one another and fighting about politics !!!! Right now with dangerous variants, vaccination mandates are overdue - and Biden does not have the BALLS to do that, because what gets him hard in the morning is the thought of winning the mid terms !!!! and Trump on the other side does not want to show himself too harsh on vaccines because he too THINKS he party can win the mid terms OR he can be re-elected in 2024 (It's gonna be hard to win against the communist party, especially Biden's successor!!!!)
If they passed a law everyone must be vaccinated for covid prevention, it
would be no different than how they raised cain over other safety laws. It
would have exceptions of course, such as people with certain health conditions
that may be prone to bad reactions. But eventually, people would accept it.
You see, I am not one of those who like vaccines - in fact like I said, my plan was NOT to get the COVID19 vaccine, there is no way I would ever take a vaccine that took less than a year to implement when it should take years, even mentioned it on the forum last year, BUT...................things changed, WHY ? The damn variants - The whole variants thing changed completely - With original strain you needed to be exposed long enough to the virus to be infected, about 10-15 minutes to someone - with the variants - there is no gap AT ALL - it is so virulent that it does not take much at all to get infected, even with measures in place - so I decided to get vaccinated, because I did the math, I know hospital workers, I've seen of my own eyes hospital COVID19 areas, and I've had family members struck with severe versions of the virus, AND friends of family who died, friends and family who did not believe in COVID19 thinking it was a hoax who caught it - only when you are already in the ICU it's too late to have regrets and want the vaccine. I HATE vaccines, I HATE needles, my first shot was very unpleasant, it's like I went to the slaughter house, luckily my 2nd dose (another person giving the shot) was great, barely even felt needle, and yes i had much higher side effects from 2nd dose, I had 100 of fever, ALL my muscles were in pain, could barely move or stand up or walk, and of course the sore arm - it lasted 2 days at most and on day 3 back to normal. It was well damn worth it. Vaccine is more than 90% effective, and for variants it is 75-80% still very high efficacy, much higher than the Flu vaccine or other vaccines. The only time I would have refused the vaccine is if it was the Mark Of The Beast - initially that was my fear, but I realised it wasn't the Mark Of The Beast, not that, not yet. Vaccines are not mandatory, you can still buy or sell.
YES I am concerned of vaccines in the long term - they skipped some testing phases, was vaccine rushed ? A little, they only tested efficacy short term - BUT they did not test SAFETY LONG TERM. STILL, it is a risk willing ot take,
I'd rather take this tiny percent risk, than risk getting infected and ending up hooked up to needles and tubes in a hospital, with a shot of paralytic and struggling to breath and begging to die.
