We all love liberty right?
What about the freedom to move around without having to show our soviet style papers?
Six states have now stood up for good old fashioned American freedoms and are saying no to these vaccine passports.
Sources list Texas, Florida, Idaho, Utah, Montana, and Tennessee as the states who are currently saying no.
Time will tell if the list will get bigger, and my money is on it getting bigger.
You can bet which states will require it and which ones will not by which way they lean……which is really sad.
Human rights should never be a partisan issue, sadly though libs and dems seem to hate human liberty.
Take a look:
Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte (R) signed an executive order Wednesday to ban the state and businesses from mandating vaccine passports, making Montana the fifth state to denounce the passes that allow holders to prove they’ve been vaccinated against coronavirus—joining Idaho, Texas, Florida and Utah—as Republicans continue to ramp up a political culture war issue.
Gianforte, who signed the executive order from isolation after testing positive for coronavirus last week, said he would still “strongly encourage” his constituents to receive a vaccine, but said he won’t allow vaccine passports in Montana to protect “individual liberty and personal privacy.”
It’s a sentiment he shares with Idaho Gov. Gov. Brad Little (R) who issued an order Friday banning state government entities from requiring proof of coronavirus vaccination to receive public services, in which he noted vaccines are the “best shot at protecting jobs and saving lives.”
The Epoch Times had more on Tennessee's fight against the passports:
The Tennessee Senate passed a bill that aims to ban so-called “vaccine passports” on a state level.
The legislation would also take away public health powers from county boards of health.
The bill, named SB0858/HB0575, is sponsored by state Sen. Janice Bowling and state Rep. John Ragan, both Republican.
If the bill makes it through the state House, it will depend on the governor to sign it into law.
Tennessee’s Republican Governor Bill Lee expressed his disapproval for vaccine passports earlier this month on Twitter.
“I oppose vaccine passports. The COVID-19 vaccine should be a personal health choice, not a government requirement,” Lee said.
