VACCINES: Vote against mandate supporters

| October 27, 2021 1:00 AM

I am a fully vaccinated Republican who works for a regional telecommunications company as an IT Manager where we are currently implementing the Biden Administrations vaccine mandate. I’m having to watch as staff and colleagues grapple with their sincerely held beliefs against the prospects of being financially ruined and/or cast off as second class employees.

As a manager, this is one of the most disgusting edicts I’ve ever had to impose upon employees and for me brings about deep rooted feelings of anger and resentment. And while I’m certain there will be numerous successful lawsuits against this unconstitutional mandate, the damage will have already been done. We will have already alienated millions of American citizens and will have forced all the “unvaccinated” into hiding … This is how an armed uprising starts and if you believe this to be hyperbole, then I believe you should take a long look inward because you are part of the problem.

Even my sweet little grandmother knew that you could catch more flies with honey than you could with vinegar. So while I leverage self-discipline to maintain professionalism in the face of adversity, I implore all like-minded individuals to ensure you’re registered to vote and use those votes to remove any elected public official from office who thinks vaccine mandates are a good idea.
