Taking a page right out of the Wag the Dog playbook, our government and MSM (mainstream media) have created a nation wide panic because of the super scary swine flu disease (anyone remember how many people died from SARS or the bird flu??). Scaring the public by using frightening terms such as “pandemic portions,” our government is really just distracting us so we’ll forget about trying to stomach all the sickening bail outs and dirty economic dealings they’re currently doing. For instance, both General Motors and Chrysler have been told by the Obama administration’s automotive task force that they should prepare for bankruptcy. Forgot about the idea that we are now a fascist country where the government tells private businesses how to run, or that we wasted tax payer money bailing out failed car companies. Now we’re wasting money on useless face masks, while discussing mandatory vaccinations, shutting down schools, and cutting short children’s little league seasons. What a bunch of BS!
Bringing things into perspective and offering some much needed common sense, Ron Paul harkened back to the 1970’s when our nation faced another swine flu scare. Out of the entire House, only Ron Paul and one other Congressman (who was also a physician) voted against making a nation wide vaccination mandatory, claiming that the government should not be in the business of health care and that there could be significant side effects. It turned out that only one person died from the swine flue, while 25 people ended up dying from the vaccinations, and 500 others developed Guillain-Barre syndrome (a rare nervous system disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks part of the nervous system and can result in paralysis). It was a complete debacle! To go even further, it was downright evil of the government to force people to put the vaccination into their body.
Here we are today, where over 30,000 people a year die from the seasonal flu (which is supposedly much worse than the swine flu), but not even one person has died in the US from the swine flu and we’ve declared a state of emergency. Please ignore all the hysteria and think twice before taking a vaccination. It’s all just a distraction, and what we need to be focusing on is what our government is doing behind the blanket of hysteria. We need to pull back the curtains on the Wizard of Oz and call them out.
