I feel like it's important to use percentages and per-capita statistics, as opposed to raw numbers that sound scary. But of course best way of looking at the data is kind of subjective though, so to each their own is all I can say shrug

Politically I'm independent/moderate/etc, but they keep getting worse each year. I'm getting quite tired of them deciding what kind of car I can drive, what wages I'm allowed to work for, what kind of fence I can have, what I can say online, what kind of guns I can buy, what I do or don't inject into my body, etc. I just want to be left alone.

My opinion on this specific vaccine is irrelevant, I have a big problem with the federal government getting this involved in my personal health, and terms in which I can be employed. Especially considering how unvaccinated people are pretty much only affecting each other, and covid actually hasn't killed that many people (~0.001% of the population here) This goes against a lot of my principles even if I believe it would ultimately be beneficial to our countries literal and economic health.

Well your world sounds different than mine, and I can see why you'd be against it given that experience, crazy stuff. The reactions beyond a sore arm do concern me, I have heard about people having that, nothing lasting that I know of, but still. Maybe I should wait it out for full FDA approval, I'm in a pretty low risk group for covid anyways, like you say it's manageable. Thank God we have the freedom to make these observations and decide what's best for us on an individual level.
