Can we get sources for some of these? I'd really like to know more about them sometimes.

And here I thought that was a liberal flavor of stupid.

I think the question of "are vaccines wise?" cuts pretty evenly across ideological lines, and tends to cluster in predominantly-liberal areas.  The question of "should vaccines be mandatory?" is a somewhat different question, unless you believe that everything wise should be mandatory.  I ascribe the gap in the answer to that question to the current popularity of anti-regulatory impulses.
A novice was trying to fix a broken Lisp machine by turning the power off and on.
Knight, seeing what the student was doing, spoke sternly: “You cannot fix a machine by just power-cycling it with no understanding of what is going wrong.”
Knight turned the machine off and on.
The machine worked.

It is not that vaccines should be mandatory because vaccines are wise. It is that vaccines should be mandatory because mandatory vaccines are wise.

I take your point, though.

Holy false dilemmas, Batman. I personally don't think *everything* wise should be mandatory, but vaccines sure as hell should be, or at the very least people who choose not to vaccinate their children for non-health related reasons ought to be forced to live with the consequences, such as doctors having the right to refuse service to them or being unable to place themselves or their children in public institutions such as schools.
