How I Became Anti-Vaccine.

I’ve already been leaning in this direction myself, if I ever have kids, but this article certainly helps to solidify my decision even more.

For several years, I was unsure. I felt caught between different sources of conflicting information that I thought to be credible. But I knew too much to believe what we were always told – that vaccines were “safe & effective”.

I chose a delayed and selective vaccine schedule for my son. I was torn between the risk of a “preventable” disease and the risk of vaccine injury. I didn’t know as much as I do now.

This is the best article that I’ve read about making a reluctant decision to vote for a Trump/Pence ticket. It makes my decision feel not so reluctant.

I’d much rather cast my vote for a person who’s outspoken in his negative character, who surrounds himself with people of good character, who might influence and correct him in his downfalls, than to accept defeat and contribute to the possible election of a person with such horrible character that she places personal gain above the safety and wellbeing of the American people and laws of the land.

Anyone who has been tracking my writing during the course of this campaign knows how deeply concerned I am about Mr. Trump — his lack of experience, flip-flopping on issues, and the unkind and at times even vulgar or vitriolic language he uses against his critics. I had hoped he would be defeated in the primaries. Or challenged by a plausible third party candidate. Or would drop out after the release of the deeply offensive video of him speaking with Billy Bush.

But this is where we are. Now, it is truly is a binary choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. There’s no…
