You can’t be for liberty if you are for vaccine passports.
Texas and Florida are often the leaders when it comes to Conservative dissent against ridiculous things like vaccine passports, online censorship, and The Biden Administration.
I wouldn’t be surprised if more states started to follow the charge that Texas Governor Abbott, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are leading right now.
In fact, I believe that states HAVE to stand up.
This is our liberty we are talking about here; not some small regulation or law.
Florida and Texas have been doing A LOT of things right lately……….maybe it is time we follow their lead and stand up for what is right.
Here is more on the story:
CBS News had more on Governor Abbott's ban on the passports:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott used his executive power Tuesday to ban state government and some private entities from requiring COVID-19 "vaccine passports" to access services, in the latest move from a Republican governor pitting public health campaigns against personal freedom and private choices.
According to Abbott's order, state agencies and political subdivisions, and public and private organizations that receive public funding in Texas cannot require people to prove that they have been inoculated against the coronavirus.
The mandate also states that it will supersede any conflicting local executive orders and calls for the Texas Legislature to take up COVID-19 vaccine requirements during its ongoing current session.
CNN had more on Governor Desantis' ban of the passports:
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order Friday banning the use of Covid-19 passports in the state.
The order prohibits any government entity from issuing vaccine passports and blocks businesses from requiring any such documentation.
DeSantis cited freedom and privacy concerns as the primary basis for the action, arguing that the implementation and enforcement of vaccine passports would "create two classes of citizens based on vaccinations."
The order notes many Floridians have not yet had the opportunity to obtain a vaccine, while some may have infection-acquired immunity, and other people may be unable to get a Covid-19 vaccine because of health, religious or other reasons.
