The Republican Party seems to be oblivious to the dangers of COVID 19.
When Trump gave his acceptance speech outside the White House on Thursday night, roughly 1500 people (most without masks) sat close together on chairs set up on the lawn.
The Republican Party is STILL oblivious to the danger of COVID 19. By no small coincidence, the states that have the lowest vaccination rate are also the states that are the least educated.
This morning, CNN had a story about the students at the University of Indiana who were suing the school because of its vaccination mandate. Their contention is that being forced to be vaccinated infringes on their constitutional rights, which is a silly argument.
It could also be argued that being forced to wear a seat belt violated your constitutional rights - and that is just as dumb,
The students are being represented by attorney James Bopp Jr.
James Bopp Jr.. is an American conservative lawyer. He has repeatedly been named one of the 100 most influential lawyers in the United States by the National Law Journal, and is most known for his work associated with election laws and campaign finance.
Bopp served as Indiana's Republican National Committeeman on the Republican National Committee, and was the RNC's Vice Chairman from 2008 to 2012.
He has been the general counsel for National Right to Life since 1978, the James Madison Center for Free Speech since 1997, and as the special counsel for Focus on the Family since 2004. Bopp was the editor of Restoring the Right to Life: The Human Life Amendment.
Bopp is known for his staunch social conservatism, and his past and present clients are "a who's who of social conservatism," including the Traditional Values Coalition, the Home School Legal Defense Association, Concerned Women for America, and the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
Bopp is particularly known for his opposition to all forms of limits on money in politics and his role as counsel for groups seeking to strike down campaign-finance limitations.
In 2009, Bopp was the lead sponsor of an RNC resolution that initially called on the Democratic Party to change its name to Democratic Socialist Party. A compromise resolution was passed instead, condemning President Barack Obama and the then-Democratic congressional majority for "pushing America toward socialism and more government control.
