I was being a bit more snarky than necessary, but since you ask, yes you pretty much understood my overall attitude perfectly.
Doctor's don't get paid by pharmaceutical companies to push immunizations. I know many family Doctors and their only motivation (beyond getting paid for the medical visit - they have to make a living of course) is to help their patients... PERIOD.
Both Doctors, scientists, and the government have pushed the immunization agenda because it is the best thing for the common public good. When Polio and TB was running rampant would you have complained about vaccinations then? The reason we don't have stuff like that running through the population at large now like we did 50-100 years ago is... immunizations.
So to sum up, yes, I will trust the opinion of Doctor's who have worked for years studying medicine and practicing medicine, and the "scientists" who work on the vaccines. They know more than some "joe the plumber" that doesn't have the education or any reliable evidence to dispute the positive effects of immunization.
Has your trusted Doc wrote you a prescription for Viox lately?

Just thought I'd clarify your position. Let me make mine clear as well.

When the individual has the final say, I have no problem with doctors, scientists, or even the government recommending medication or vaccine.

The real, or at least underlying, issue at hand is ownership. Who owns me; who owns my family? Those who own themselves and their family are truly free, but when the ultimate authority rests not with the individual but with the government, then the individual does not own him/herself, or the family.

I own you, with my health care program I am much better suited for making decisions for your children than you are. You poor backward thinking freedom lovers just have yet to grasp the concept of a superior being in the form of as centralized authority. I will supply all your needs if you will just surrender your thought process to my governance.

You know? I was going to say that when you grow up it might make more sense, but considering you're probably a product of government schooling ....

Never mind.

Ah, I understand what you are saying now, and I agree to a point. The parents should have a say in getting the kids vaccinated or not. I just hold the position that if they choose NOT to, that their kids should be barred from public schools.

The Vaccines = Autism debaukle was perpetrated by ONE doctor who was later discredited and has his license revoked for unethical practice becuase he took blood from kids at his son's birthday party without parental consent!

"At least four of the 12 [children in his study] lacked history of gastrointestinal symptoms and so did not constitute the "routine referrals to the gastroenterology department" that had been stated in the paper."

"On another occasion, at his own son's birthday party in 1999, he took blood from children who were there as guests and paid them each 5 for agreeing to this."

In addition to this, he could not provide documentation of where the funding for his "trial" came from and not only could not reproduce his findings but flat out refused to. The man is a fraud who was fishing for publicity.

You don't have to worry about vaccines.

Just google 'toxic flouride in our drinking water' in Utube, and see what all pops up...

The elimination of 80-90% of the world population by the 'people at the top' isn't going to suddenly happen. It's a current ongoing, gradual process - which includes so many gov't mandated toxins as well as environmental problems. The list goes on and on...
