In 1787 Dr. Benjamin Rush warned the Founding Fathers that, unless freedom of choice in medical care was constitutionally protected, Americans would end up with no freedom of choice. He said:

“The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for medical freedom. To restrict the art of healing to one class will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic… Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution; the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship and force people, who wish doctors and treatments of their own choice, to submit to only what the dictating outfit offers.”

Our Supreme Court has approved Obamacare. After 100 years of increasing costs and decreasing quality, establishment medicine is to reign supreme. The American Medical Association and the Drug Industry, which together have taken an increasing toll of Americans lives and fortunes, have eliminated alternative medicine and will be in complete control. It is sad that effective, low cost medical technologies, which have been suppressed by our medical monopoly, could have substantially lowered our medical costs and increased quality as well. For example, Dr. Thomas Levy, MD, JD, a cardiologist, in his book “PRIMAL PANACEA”, has stated that if vitamin C was used properly, the cost of treating heart disease would plummet! What Dr. Rush predicted has come to pass, but with a macabre twist.

In 2001, according to a study commissioned by the Life Extension Foundation, iatrogenic diseases, those caused by the “health care” industry, caused over 784,000 deaths. The former leading cause of death was heart disease which caused about 700,000 deaths. The Affordable Care Act, recently blessed by our Supreme Court, delivers us to conventional medicine, The Number 1 Killer of Americans!  It excludes nutritional therapies, herbal remedies, naturopathic medicine and other healing arts.

We are left with “one size fits all” medicine to be controlled by politicians and economists. Technologies that actually cure cancer, like Dr, Stanislaw Burzinski’s anti-neoplastons, are in danger. Dr. Frederick Kleener’s intravenous vitamin C technology, which enabled him to cure 60 “incurable” Polio patients during the Polio epidemic, is already forbidden in many venues. A campaign against chelation therapy which treats hardening of the arteries and may provide protection against cancer is about to start,

According to Dr. William C. Douglass, the Drug Industry paid $70 million for two Pro Obama Care advertising campaigns and $150 million for TV advertisements coordinated with the White House. In return it may gain as much as $20 billions a year resulting from elimination of competition from re-importation of drugs. Leaked e-mails indicate it is business as usual in Washington: Money talks!! The AMA only offered $2 millions to protect physician’s incomes and their telephone calls weren’t returned!

Douglas says this program will add 30 million patients and an extra $1.76 trillion to our medical care bill over the next ten years and doesn’t provide for any more physicians. He predicts long waits at physicians’ offices, lower standards and higher insurance premiums.

Voters need to decide whether their elected representatives who voted for Obama care, without reading the bill, are worthy of reelection. Mitt Romney promised that, if elected, he will repeal this law. Don’t bet on it, however, because, according to Dr. Douglass, Romney created the program on which Obamacare is based.    

Unless Obama care is repealed, freedom to choose our medical services will disappear and, in my opinion, the health and life expectancy of Americans will suffer. Unless we  get together and demand that Freedom of Choice in Medical Care be protected by State Constitutional Amendments, costs of care will continue to spiral and our health will continue to deteriorate.
