According to famous neurosurgeon and former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, vaccine mandates could end up shaping a terrible future for the country.
“The really important thing here is for us to recognize that this is America that we’re living in,” Carson said while being interviewed on Monday’s “Eric Bolling: The Balance.”
“This is a place where people came so that they could be free. And the whole concept of mandates, no matter how wonderful you think they are, are opening the door to something that could be pretty terrible in the future,” he added.
Carson shared his concern that politicians could impose “some types of penalties” on Americans for having unorthodox views, and that is something “we have to think about.”
As far as vaccines, Carson believes “they’re very good.” Vaccination mandates, however, are not, he said.
And if activists try to steer people ”in one direction or another by parceling out certain types of information, it makes them even more suspicious,” Carson said.
Carson then concluded by saying that “the damage that we do with mandates that are unnecessary is tremendous. And we can’t afford it.”
The government should never tell the people of this great nation that they have to take a vaccine or wear a mask. These are areas where the federal government has absolutely no jurisdiction. It’s also uncouth for local and state governments to do this sort of thing too.
People are smart enough to make their own decisions and do their own research to find out whether or not the vaccine is something that is right for them.
