To the Editor:

Joe Biden has declared that any business with over 100 employees must require COVID vaccinations of its employees, or submit those not vaccinated to weekly COVID tests. Nothing in the U.S. Constitution gives a president that authority over its citizens. His tyrannical order is blatantly unconstitutional and will be overturned in court.

What makes this worse is the list of those exempt from this vaccination mandate, including Congress and congressional staffers, and Federal Judges and their staff. Guess which union gave $1.2 million in donations to Democrats in 2020? The U.S. Post Office Letter Carriers union, which also seems exempt from the vaccination mandate.

Who else is exempt from this vaccination mandate? Anyone entering illegally into our country.

A few days ago Vice President Harris said, “When people are able to make choices without government interference for themselves — in terms of their well-being and the well-being of their family, in consultation with whomever they may choose — we are a stronger society.”

Harris and Biden obviously did not coordinate their soundbites.

A free nation has citizens, which includes our elected officials, who believe in and follow their oath to support the Constitution. Forcing adults to inject vaccines is unconstitutional and immoral; that action turns citizens into subjects.
