San Benito County, California, May Lead the Nation in Stopping Health Mandates
As this piece goes to press, San Benito County, California is considering agenda item 43 to eliminate the intrusive health orders of 2020 and 2021 from that county.
A very special battle is taking place in California right now. These past few weeks, Santa Clara County, California, home of Silicon Valley, is implementing and testing the vaccine mandate that will be the model for all vaccine mandates in the United States. Local groups are amassing to stop it and to educate individuals on how to fight it. Other county boards are using their plenary power to oppose those moves in their own counties. Because of those boards, there may be no ability for anyone to claim unanimity in California.
But lack of unanimity is no victory. Stopping the tyranny and rolling it back would be the victory. After all, the only legitimate reason for government to exist is to protect human freedom. If government is not doing that, then it’s existence is without purpose, no matter how well-intentioned that purpose claims to be.
The First County Board In California To Act
By the time this goes to press, there may be a first county board in California officially pushing for an end to vaccine passports and face mask mandates. That matter is scheduled for a Tuesday afternoon vote, June 22, 2021 in San Benito County. With Silicon Valley just up the road trying to do the exact opposite, local leaders and activists have given this resolution their vocal and impassioned support.
San Benito, a geographically large county with a population of 60,000 has the following scheduled for a June 22 vote as agenda item 43.
