Great news. Florida sets a health freedom precedent, in case you missed it
DeSantis calls a spade a spade: suggests permanent protections against the "biomedical security state" Isn't that a breath of fresh air?
This was a slide from my presentation in Stockholm Saturday. Go to the URL under the governor’ photo to watch him speak.
Another bit of news in the “Reality Check” column is a Rasmussen poll from last week in which 52% said the US healthccare system is “POOR” or “FAIR”—a rapid comedown from just ten years ago, when most Americans thought they had the best healthcare in the world.

As always, the devil is in the details. I haven’t been able to find the text for this bill mentioned above, but the last supposed “vaccine mandate ban” snuck some pretty nasty stuff through. This bill passed just 2 years ago and is current Florida law, and DeSantis signed it.
From pg 38&39:
4. Ordering an individual to be examined, tested, vaccinated, treated, isolated, or quarantined for communicable diseases that have significant morbidity or mortality and present a severe danger to public health. Individuals who are unable or unwilling to be examined, tested, vaccinated, or treated for reasons of health, religion, or conscience may be subjected to isolation or quarantine.
a. Examination, testing, vaccination, or treatment may be performed by any qualified person authorized by the State Health Officer.
b. If the individual poses a danger to the public health, the State Health Officer may subject the individual to isolation or quarantine. If there is no practical method to isolate or quarantine the individual, the State Health Officer may use any means necessary to vaccinate or treat the individual.
The plain text of this law allows the state health authorities to do whatever they want to you for whatever reason as long as it serves some vague public good. If this isn’t Soviet level tyranny, I really don’t know what is then.
And this is supposed to be the freest state in the union? Yikes.
I'm of the opinion that our medical freedom rights are ALREADY protected and furthermore, the "laws" that enable government to violate them should be abolished.
Creating more laws only allows legal warfare specialists to wriggle out more loopholes that justify oppressing the population.
