Ron Paul Says No! To Government Mandated Immunization!(unlike Huckabee)

James Freedman: Ron Paul: No To Mandatory Immunization - Off The Bus on The Huffington Post: "'I don't think anything should be forced on us by the government, [and] immunization is one thing that we're pressured and forced into,' he said. 'The other thing they're doing right now is the government's doing this mental health testing of everybody in school and they're putting a lot of pressure, in a way forcing kids to be put on psychotropic drugs, which I think are very, very dangerous. So anything medical that is forced on us I think is bad.'

What if a dangerous disease was spreading like wildfire? Would Paul cave and require immunization in such a dire situation?

'No, I wouldn't do it, because the person who doesn't take the shot is the one at risk...' he said. 'A responsible parent is going to say, 'Yeah, I want my child to have that,' [but] when the government makes a mistake, they make it for everybody. You know, that's what worries me. They don't always come up with the perfect answer sometimes... and people have had some very, very serious reactions from these immunizations.'"
