United States of America

As Election Day 2016 fast approaches, WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, are immensely concerned that the named candidates for the Office of the President of the United States have failed to officially state on their official election campaign websites their respective campaign pledges on whether they specifically support or oppose PUBLIC MANDATORY VACCINATION.

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, are deeply troubled by the fact that after more than a year’s worth of campaigning, an issue of the gravest of concern to the present and future health of the American people has been and continues to be thoroughly neglected by the presidential candidates as a stated campaign issue – namely his/her “official” position as to whether he/she believes vaccines are safe, whether vaccine injury claims are being properly handled, and whether or not he/she supports the institution of mandatory vaccination policies.

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, are unanimous in our opposition to any legislative or regulatory effort by the federal government and its agencies that proposes, supports, or encourages the mandatory vaccination for our citizens, especially the children, and we deem any such endeavor as un-American, a violation of our human and constitutional rights and freedoms, and a direct threat to the health and prosperity of the American people.

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, are united in our belief that vaccines: (a) Are not being properly tested nor fully researched and evaluated before they are sold to the public; (b) Are causing devastating side-effects for which the medical industry has no curative solutions, resulting in crippling, often lifelong injuries and even death; and (c) Are resulting in an incredibly large number of injury claims which are not being processed fairly and expeditiously, and often result in the unjust delay of compensation award payments to the victims.

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, believe that, while the presidential candidates are heavily seeking our support in the form of campaign donations, volunteering work, social media advocacy of their candidacies, and, of course, our vote on Election Day ……. these same candidates are deliberately overlooking our aforementioned concerns regarding vaccines by failing or refusing to include on their respective campaign websites their “position statements” describing what their vaccine policies would be, if elected. Even with the national and international uproar covered by the media over the censorship efforts regarding the now immensely popular film, “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe” -- a documentary pertaining to the destruction by CDC officials of credible, scientific research demonstrating a connection between the MMR vaccine and the onset of autism in children – the candidates have remained strangely quiet on the subject.

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, are appalled that, despite owning and readily promoting campaign websites with a section that states their positions on various other issues, none of the named candidates has appealed to us -- a vaccine-concerned constituency numbering in the millions -- by stating, in clear and concise language, what his/her policy is on the subject of vaccines, and especially whether they advocate for mandatory policies. Equally disheartening to us is the fact that the aforementioned vaccine concerns were also never addressed in the written “platform statements” drafted by the political parties of the candidates for presentation at the respective party Conventions ….. platform statements over which the presidential candidates had tremendous power to shape. Accordingly, the only conclusion we can draw from these circumstances is that both the candidate AND the their respective parties, while eager for our support, have no interest in our vaccine-related concerns.

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, are painfully aware of what took place in the State of California with the outrageous and unconstitutional passage, despite overwhelming public opposition, of the nation’s most stringent vaccine mandate law …. the infamous SB-277. Said statute, which was heavily lobbied by the vaccine industry, abolished a parent’s right to seek exemption of their school-aged children from vaccination, subjecting those children to the administration of more than 40 doses of 10 federally recommended vaccines -- with State Officials having the sole discretion to add more vaccines to the list, if they want. Non-compliant children are prohibited from attending public or private schools, as well as licensed daycare facilities, in-home daycare or public/private preschool. To make matters worse, the passage of SB-277 has encouraged other state legislatures, and even the U.S. Congress, to introduce mandatory vaccination measures of their own. The purpose of our demand that presidential candidates officially publish their position statement regarding vaccines on their campaign websites stems from our desire for clarity in understanding each candidate’s OFFICIAL STAND on this extremely urgent matter.

Based on the foregoing concerns, WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, as demonstrated by our individual signatures to this Petition, hereby DECLARE that we will not support the candidacy of any candidate seeking to be elected President of the United States unless he/she publishes his/her “position statement” on their official campaign website which PLEDGES support for the following measures:

(a) That he/she PLEDGES to veto any legislation and oppose any federal agency regulation by any lawful means necessary which seeks to establish mandatory civilian vaccination requirements during his or her presidency;

(b) That he/she PLEDGES to make every lawful effort within his/her power and control within the first 100 days of taking office to introduce appropriate legislation that guarantees parents throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and its various territories, the right to claim an exemption (for religious, philosophical, medical, personal or conscientious beliefs) against the vaccination of their children (natural, adopted, or by custodial order) without penalty or prejudice which supersedes any other local, state, or federal statute/regulation to the contrary;

(c) That he/she PLEDGES to make every lawful effort within his/her power and control within the first 100 days of taking office to cause Congress to establish public hearings, with subpoena power, to investigate the claims made by CDC scientist and whistleblower, Dr. William W. Thompson, regarding the CDC's alleged, intentional destruction of scientific research findings that demonstrate a connection between the MMR vaccine and the onset of autism in children;

(d) That he/she PLEDGES to make every lawful effort within his/her power and control within the first 100 days of taking office to introduce appropriate legislation to amend the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 to provide victims asserting claims exceeding the value of $250,000.00, the right, if they so choose, to leave the jurisdiction of the U.S. Federal Claims Court system and pursue, instead, civil court litigation against the vaccine manufacturer directly; and

(e) That he/she PLEDGES to make every lawful effort within his/her power and control within the first 100 days of taking office to appoint a Special Adviser to the President who will have the full authority to investigate concerns expressed about the operation and management of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, especially with regard to the payment of compensation awards, and create and publicly release a report on any findings.
