What does the Women’s Suffrage Movement have to do with Mandatory Vaccination?
I'm reading a really good book right now I'd like to encourage all of you to read. "A Woman's Crusade, Alice Paul and the Battle for the Ballot" by Mary Walton is well written and an important part of our history. The fight over women's suffrage - the right to vote as a woman's right - was championed by a small group of determined women. Here's a snip from the book:
In 1848 - a mere 165 years ago - a married woman in the U.S. could not own property. She could not make a contract or a will, and could not operate a business in her own name. If she worked, her wages belonged to her husband. In Georgia, men had the right to whip their wives. If they divorced, the husband had custody of the children. The doors of most public universities were closed to women. And except for an occasional school board meeting or in an occasional municipality, a woman could not vote....
Voting, it was argued, would distract women from their sacred domestic roles and wifely duties. Men controlled the agenda. Women's rights were opposed by the powerful liquor and manufacturing establishments. Protectors of the status quo - the wealthy stake holders in oil, mining and railroads - quietly filled lawmakers' pockets and prodded them to take an anti-suffrage stand.
In 1850, Susan B Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton formed a partnership. They lead the movement to overcome the legal barriers that prohibited women from having voting equality. By 1906, both women had passed on. Fifty years of effort had won women the ballot in just four states: Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and Idaho. With the passing of the Movement's Leaders, the suffrage establishment did not die, but it had aged and had grown weary. It was said, "The Suffrage Movement bored its adherents and repelled its opponents."
Then, in 1913, the fight for women's rights was refueled by a potent combination of education, frustration, anger and courage. They had one goal: a constitutional amendment allowing women the right to vote. Their leader, Alice Paul, was a NJ Quaker. She was not only fearless, but a brilliant tactician, talented fundraiser, and a canny publicist. She gathered a cadre of fiercely determined women who vowed to not give up until they had won. And after 7 years of relentless pursuit, the 19th Amendment was ratified on August 18, 1920, giving women the right to vote. Hard to believe that less than 100 years ago, women had no voice and few rights in this country.... a benefit gained by disciplined work of a few dedicated women (and men). When working together, they didn't always agree but they were completely unified and focused on attaining the end result.
At its peak, there were only about 60,000 people involved in the suffrage battle. They railed against skepticism, ridicule, and violence. They marched in the streets. They picketed. They were arrested. Alice Paul was physically tortured when she went on a hunger strike while in jail.
What would you be willing to do, willing to tolerate, willing to face, for something you believed in?
After the 19th Amendment was passed, Alice spent the rest of her life working for equal rights for women in the US and in Europe with the League of Nations. At the age of 92, shortly before she died, she badgered her young female caretakers saying, "What was I doing when I was your age, to further the cause of women? You, you, you young people are the ones who should be taking up the mantle for the future!"
It seems those who want to refuse mandatory injections are in a similar battle that Alice Paul and her team fought -- and overcame:
We are opposed by wealthy powers - such as the Gates Foundation and the
entire Pharma industry.
• The Medical profession refuses to acknowledge the carnage of neurodegenerative and autoimmune disease being caused by vaccines - and insists on vaccines for all.
• The Insurance industry has begun setting standards for vaccine coverage doctors will have to meet to get paid.
• The Vaccine Court disallows compensation for injury, even death.
• State legislators - fueled by the vaccine lobby - want to repeal exemption laws. Even medical doctors are calling for exemptions to be repealed.
• Healthcare workers are being forced to accept a flu shot in exchange for employment and a W2 wage.
• ...And deep inside Obamacare is language to allow door-to-door vaccinators into your community, vaccinating for the Good of the Whole.
What are you willing to do to avoid mandatory vaccination?
Are you strong enough, determined enough, courageous enough, brave enough? Will you rally together for the sake of your health and the right to choose what is injected into your children? Are you willing to stay in the fight when the going gets a little tough - and the pro-vaccinators come after you? Are you willing to take a stand to draw the line that separates you from your government at the level of your skin...and the skin of your children/grand children?
Where are the 30-somethings? Those of us who are 50+ and have been at the forefront of this fight for years, we need your support. After all, what is happening now will mostly effects YOUR generation, your world. What are your unvaccinated children are going to face, if you don't take a strong stand now?

Is it time to rally together and begin? Or are we at the end....
I have long maintained that those who opposed mandatory vaccination should study the Women's Suffrage movement. And with our rights eroding on a daily basis, strategic leaders - determined men and women - need to emerge. Now. The Suffrage Movement may serve as an inspiration that leads to success: retaining your right to refuse.
