Americans, New Englanders in particular, do NOT like having the government tell them what they CAN and CAN NOT do. Liberty is the reason the United States of America exists. Religious freedom is at the core of our liberty. Vaccination has become an Orthodox religion in this country. Measles is the sin. The VaxEducated (formerly known as anti-vaxxers) are the sinners. Pharma is God. Public health officials and Politicians are the Cardinals. Pediatricians are the Parish priests. Nurses are the Nuns. And our kids are the altar boys and girls..... serving on the altar of Merck... with their pants around their ankles.
