By Stephen Miller

The Rush Amendment originated during discussions between Jack Phillips and Stephen Miller on finding the best solution to the health crisis and federal medical tyranny facing the American People during the writing of Jack’s book, “Suppressed Medical Science” in 2010.

I met Jack Phillips at dinner one night in ’03 or ’04 at the Bird’s Nest Retreat in the mountains of North Georgia, a crossroads and watering hole of esoteric personalities, bio-dynamic farmers, alternative health practitioners and other borderland researchers. It is owned by Shabari Bird, the widow of the renowned late researcher and author Christopher Bird (Secrets of the Soil), when she is not off in some far corner of the world on her own research and work ventures. Jack and I struck up an easy acquaintance. As it turned out we were both doing research on Vitamin C and its medical uses for treating bird flu or any type flu. We stayed in touch over the ensuing years and crossed paths a few times in different parts of the country.

In February of 2010, at age 93, he asked me to help him with assembling his latest book, “Suppressed Medical Science.” His new book covers the A to Z of medical care, the medical cartel, and numerous examples of suppressed medical sciences in America, past and present.

Jack was also in the process of setting up a “Freedom of Choice in Medical Care Foundation” with special emphasis on helping the mentally disabled get access to known but ignored alternative treatments such as Orthomolecular Therapy.

In working with him several months on this book our discussions became, “How can Americans expose and stop the now obvious government/corporate collusion to force us to take questionable vaccines and dangerous drugs while simultaneously passing laws to deprive us of wholesome food and nutritional supplements?”

When Jack told me that a signator to the Declaration of American Independence, Dr Benjamin Rush, wanted a clause put in the US constitution assuring Americans would always have freedom of choice in medical care and practice, I suggested that what we then need is a constitutional amendment to that effect. Jack said it should be called “The Dr. Benjamin Rush Amendment” and thus the idea of the Rush2013 Project was born.

Jack proposes both state and federal passage of “The Rush Amendment,” a Constitutional addition aimed at widening patient choices in medical care, improving treatment for mental illnesses, reducing medical and insurance costs, and redesigning the code structure by which insurance is billed.
