Letter from R. SCOTT DUNCAN
To the Editor:
Who in their right mind would want a one-payer healthcare system? That is not the root problem of the healthcare system.
money is not the problem. Americans deserve a free healthcare system.
Where does our ill health come from? Answer that and you know who should pay!
Thanks to Kaiser and Nixon, healthcare was removed from non-profit status to a for-profit system. That means the sicker you are the more money is made. Where is the motivation and incentive for wellness?
Thanks to Carnegie and Rockefeller; due to their desire to create a monopoly with the drug industry we are stuck with allopathic medicine. They figured if they drove out the use of herbs and homeopath (which they could not patent and control) and pushed drugs, they could make huge profits.
Then they went to educational institutions and gained control of the type of medicine that doctors were taught. A monopoly … based on financial gain … not on wellness and quality of life.
It is not about science. Half the world uses other forms of medicine. Some forms of medicine have been used for thousands of years, successfully.
People say how free we are….we are being maimed and killed by what is called “medicine” in this country. It is time that we are treated better. We should not just be income makers for a few who control the healthcare system.
The first step is to take control of your own heath and question your healthcare providers. Demand proof that their treatment plans work.
The best course of action is to take care of yourself now. When you are sick it is hard to sort out and find a solution to your problem while you are in pain and fear.
