I see that President Biden wants to mandate all federal employees to be vaccinated. I strongly urge you to vote against this, as this violates my private rights.

For years we have lived with the “common flu”, for lack of a better term. The flu shows up every year from October thru March, and every year kills thousands of people. We never panicked.

The medical industry came up with a vaccine for the flu, and it is offered to anyone who wishes to receive it.

Now all of a sudden, we are panicking over the corona virus, which is just that, a virus, and we are put in a whirlwind of mandates to protect us from ourselves. Businesses were ordered to shut down, people could not go to work, etc. The government has compensated the American citizens to the point that now we are trying to get back to normal, and businesses are still suffering, because they cannot get people to go to work.

I will give credit, that this virus is serious. That it is a killer, as we have seen. The flu is serious as well, but we have never gone to the extremes to prevent it as we have this virus.

I have said for years that if people who are sick with the flu or a cold would stay home, these viruses would not spread. The shut down of America has proven that.

We as citizens have our constitutional rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This in not possible when the government steps in and mandates for ” our own safety”. As in the words of Benjamin Franklin: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

In closing, I ask you, please do not condone this overreach of the government and vote against any mandates regarding Covid 19.
