Sen. Rand Paul on Tuesday railed against government-mandated vaccines, suggesting they infringe on personal rights, during a congressional hearing on immunizations' role in protecting the public from preventable diseases like the current measles outbreak sweeping parts of the country.

Paul (R-Ky.), a doctor, said he and his children are vaccinated and that he believes the benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks. "But I still do not favor giving up on liberty for a false sense of security," Paul said during the Senate health committee hearing, where he was the only lawmaker to raise doubts over vaccinations.

I know there is going to be at least one comment saying he's not really a libertarian.

Is this the philosophy's position? Is it more important for an asshat family to be free to deny science than it is to protect society from potential deadly outbreaks? Do individuals truly owe absolutely nothing to the society they live in?
