Despite all the disgusting gridlock in modern politics, it's refreshing to see both the Democratic & Republican frontrunners for the 2016 White House are in agreement about getting children vaccinated:

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton Tweets that "science is clear" for childhood vaccinations:

World-renowned pediatric brain surgeon Dr. Ben Carson also agrees with Hillary and calls out his fellow GOP idiots like Chris Christie and Rand Paul:

In rare lucid moment, Ben Carson tells Republicans not to pander to anti-vaccination hysteria


Personally, I'd like to see the state of Kentucky revoke Rand Paul's medical license over his pathetic stance on vaccinations. This moron is a certified QUACK and a danger to the public with his perverted ideological views. How many of you agree?

Indeed.



Any more questions, Jenny McCarthy?

Paul and Christie are walking the tightrope between a profoundly anti-science and rabidly paranoid fringe that makes up a substantial part of their base, and the non-nutjob part of the electorate.

This is the price we pay for not securing our borders so that rich liberals can hire cheap house maids, landscapers, and workers to work their big energy wasteful macmansions.

I agree, with empathy and compassion let us see to it that every child is vaccinated so herd immunity can be maintained.

If someone chooses to undermine that, let it be an attack on America and treated as treason rather than a religious exception.

I value each person enough to want them to be properly educated and vaccinated so they can understand that their vaccination is necessary to ensure that neither they nor they neighbors are killed by the disease.

A child that is not vaccinated is at risk for contracting the disease. His vaccinated adult neighbors may be safe from it, but their 11 month old child is too young for the vaccine and may be murdered by the careless exposure. At the very least, it should be treated as manslaughter. On the other hand, since it is a willful decision not to vaccinate, it could fall under biological warfare.
