How to Defend Health Care Freedom

Last fall, I was invited to speak about the Black Ribbon Project at the annual meeting of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons. I took the opportunity to share a few of my thoughts on the principles we need to promote to effectively defend health care freedom and the doctor-patient relationship. I am pleased with how much I was able to cover in just 25 minutes. Let me know what you think!


  1. Brilliant speech! Well said! Bravo! A fantastic ray of hope for freedom. Thank you, Dr. Haynes, for your courage and personal efforts defending the private doctor-patient relationship, and the principles of capitalism and individual freedom. We need to hear more such talks. Hope you are able to give many more speeches such as this. I strongly recommend supporting the Black Ribbon Project.

  2. Let me add my thanks and admiration for what you are doing.

  3. John and James--thank you for the kind words, and for your respective work at
    Capitalism vs. Statism
    , and retired docs thoughts.

  4. The spread of health IT, a major fixture of PPACA introduced under ARRA, is itself immoral. It is an admitted medical device that is entirely unregulated, and willfully so by FDA itself.
