The 2014 edition of the 2012 “conservative” dreamboat, Herman Cain, Dr. Ben Carson, then chimed in with what I’m supposed to believe is the real “conservative” input. “Certain communicable diseases have been largely eradicated by immunization policies in this country and we should not allow those diseases to return by foregoing safe immunization programs, for philosophical, religious or other reasons when we have the means to eradicate them.” I might ask of Dr. Carson, who is “we” and why shouldn’t my “religious” objections be worthy of consideration?
