• “One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project . . . James Madison in 1788 . . . said . . . ‘There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by a gradual and silent encroachment of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations’ [so true] . . . What can we do about this? . . . We can write to our congressmen and our senators . . . Say right now that we want no further encroachment on these individual liberties and freedoms . . . We do not want socialized medicine . . . If you don’t, this program I promise you will pass . . . and behind it will come other federal programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known . . . until, one day . . . we will awake to find that we have socialism. And . . . you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children, what it once was like in America when men were free.” ~Ronald Reagan (1961)
