Not many recognize the name Benjamin Rush.  He served as one of the lesser known Founding Fathers and signers of the Declaration of Independence.  Normally, I post much longer entries, but tonight, as I hear of Obamacare horror stories and people being hammered with penalties and fines, I find the following quote of Benjamin Rush to be prophetic.

“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 treatment of their own choice to submit to only what the dictating outfit offers.”**

We were warned…….
