Girl Gone Smart: Dying to be oppressed *Language warning*

I don't know how many posts and comments I've seen where the unvaccinated are screaming into the air about how their constitutional rights are being infringed upon.

No the f*ck they are not.


At this stage of the pandemic, the unvaccinated are infringing upon the rights of those who are vaccinated, and it has nothing to do with the United States Constitution. Know why?


When you say your liberty is being infringed upon because: "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness..." you're actually talking about the Declaration of Independence you constitutional, hypocritical heretic, not the U.S. Constitution.


Life is the first fundamental right outlined in the founding document. When you choose to be unvaccinated, you're putting my life and millions of others at risk.


There is absolutely zero infringement upon your rights when businesses, both public and private, require you to be vaccinated to enter. It's literally the opposite of what you believe. You are not being oppressed.


While the United States Constitution does not explicitly guarantee the right to health for all citizens, that doesn't mean the Constitution denies that protection either. It just doesn't explicitly include them. So what does it say?


10th Amendment

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."


That's it. The 10th Amendment.

You can't be forced to take a vaccine. You're not going to be physically restrained and given a vaccine by any legitimate public health authority in the United States at the federal, state, tribal, or local level.


But states can (and many have) created vaccine mandates.


In 1905 the Supreme Court upheld the authority of states to enforce compulsory vaccination laws. SCOTUS's decision articulated the view that individual liberty is not absolute and is subject to the police power of the state. Meaning public health is way more important than your individual personal liberty.


[While we're at it, most of you need to read the 12th Amendment, too.]


Otherwise stay home and continue to feel oppressed, okay?


Note: I'm not addressing the science here, obviously, but if you want to have a conversation about that too, I will be happy to send you my Venmo details. You will pay me for my time.
