Letter to the Editor:
Last week, after reading an opinion in this forum, I?became confused as to what was really in the Declaration of Independence. Imagine my surprise when I?decided to review that venerable document again, only to discover that it was inherently socialistic.
The preamble clearly states that “all men are created equal,” and therefore, all are deserving of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” I could not find any specific reference to universal health care, which in retrospect is a good thing.
Medical treatment in the late 18th century largely consisted of emetics, cathartics and phlebotomy (puke, poop and bleed).
Well-meaning physicians certainly facilitated George Washington’s demise,
