It has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity. Alexander Hamilton – Speech in New York, […]

In 2008, This story hit the headlines… British Grandmother Forced to Pull Her Own Teeth Because of Socialized Medicine – A story out of England illustrates the kind of problems the
socialized medical system can generate. The London Daily Mail newspaper reports 76-year-old Elizabeth Green was turned away by 12 dentists after having no luck in searching for an NHS practitioner under the health system. She ultimately resorted to pulling her own teeth because she couldn’t find anyone to treat her. American bioethics watchdog Wesley J. Smith commented on the case: “There are lessons here for the USA as we strive to find a way to expand coverage, without sinking our own boat. One lesson is that any nationalized system will have to be sparse. If we try to cover everything, we will, in the end, cover very little. Moreover, it seems clear to me that a robust private sector component will be crucial to reforming our health care system.”
