Won't Someone Think of the Children?

It's not just vaccines.  There's another killer out there stalking your children... read on for the horrible truth!

We are all aware that one of the leading causes of death among kids ages 0-11 years is auto collisions.  But here's something I bet you did not realize: nearly every single one of these incidents follows the vigorous application of at least one of the cars' brakes, usually by only a fraction of a second.  In other words, these children did not have to die.  Big Mecha, with its mindless insistence on equipping every car with brakes, is murdering our babies!

More than 9,000 of our precious darlings perished in the decade from 2002-2011, an astonishing 650 alone in the year 2011.  (CDC report quoted selectively in USA Today)   In the interest of our agenda, however, we're going to ignore the hint that the overall death-rate is declining (650 being much less that one tenth of the ten-year total) and we'll also ignore the CDC's explicit statement that one of the biggest preventable causes of these deaths is the fact that about a third of the newly-minted angels were not buckled in.

No, we're going to follow the brave lead of Robert Moore Jr. and get the brakes taken off our car.  As Moore points out in his groundbreaking essay:

I decided to do my own research and what I found was *staggering*: Hundreds of people every year are seriously injured by unnecessary braking. One time, I was driving in the snow and I just lightly tapped my brakes and it caused my car to COMPLETELY LOSE CONTROL. My brakes could have very easily gotten me killed. Even more astoundingly is how often brake pads will warp and distort rotors, causing bumpy rides and squeaky wheels.
And you know what? I also found that decades ago brakes weren’t even used! People would control their vehicle’s speed with downshifting and engine braking. Maybe it’s just coincidence, but back when engine braking was used there were almost no automotive fatalities. 

Robert is becoming the voice of the growing anti-braker movement, or as we might prefer to call it, "Natural Driving."  Sure, he lacks the bubble-headed celebrity moron status of a Jenny McCarthy, and this will definitely be a hindrance to getting our movement off the ground.  But we still press on, bucking Big Mecha with their $49.99 brake pad "specials", not to mention the state officials in their pockets with so-called auto safety regulations and the fascist "inspections" that enforce them

Help our movement grow!  Defeat Big Mecha!  Buy some swag, to show your spirit!
