    I think all public servants who have made an oath to defend the constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic, should carry a copy of this oath with them in their wallet. They should also carry a copy of the constitution around with them. Forgetting these important words and concepts is grounds for dismissal. Those who despise our rights, deserve to be despised.

    Government does NOT have the right to require its citizens to take vaccines, especially when ALL vaccine regulations have been waived and the vaccine manufacturer will be exempt from any and ALL liability. We need to make our own medical decisions.

    I am an avid defender of the American people’s Constitutional rights and freedoms. Government has no right to mandate the forfeiting of such rights and liberties to suit their own twisted agenda(s) and viewpoints of what is best for its citizenry.
