NC 3rd Annual Statewide Volunteer Meeting

Make plans today to join us for COS North Carolina's 3rd Annual Statewide Volunteer meeting. We will gather at 11:00 am, Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023 at Atlantic Pacific Studios, 1714 Carolina Mills Road, Burlington.  

We are still working on a fabulous agenda! Here's what we have confirmed thus far:  

  • A celebration of you, our volunteers!!!  
  • A discussion with Rep. Dennis Riddell, our biggest advocate in the NC House, about the workings of the NC General Assembly particularly as it relates to our resolution. 
  • A presentation by Dean Jones, a long-time movie producer in Hollywood with a first hand understanding of how Hollywood contributed to the erosion of our American culture with anti-American, anti-conservative and anti-Christian entertainment. 
  • A review of where we stand on the COS resolution in both the House and Senate, our strategy to get the resolution passed in 2023 and, mostly importantly, how you can help make that possible.
  • A short letter writing session to impact various different House and Senate members to support our efforts.

That alone is a full agenda, however, we're still working on another speaker from the NC General Assembly to talk about administrative overreach here in NC. 

We hope to make this volunteer meeting our best yet!!

Physicians for COS

The diagnosis is clear.

We have a growing cancer today known as the Obamacare. As a result physicians are no longer free to practice medicine.

No profession feels the full force of the federal government more than physicians. The medical profession is the most highly regulated profession in the United States. The practice of medicine is controlled, taxed, and regulated to the point of being destroyed by the heavy hand of the federal government.

Physicians are told how to bill, how much to charge, and how to treat patients. They are mandated to use expensive electronic medical records. The federally enacted HIPPA (Health Information Privacy and Portability Act) makes the communication between physicians and atients burdensome, inefficient,and expensive. Every physician is required by federal mandate to register with the government to obtain an NPI (national provider identifier.) We are required by federal law to obtain and pay for a license to prescribe medication through the DEA, which is separate from our state licensure.

This heavy hand of government not only oversees the largest federal health bureaucracy ever created, but by extension reaches into every state, every city, and every small town to regulate how every licensed physician practices the art of medicine and how citizens obtain care.

The treatment is also clear.

The prescription for a cure was written into our constitution by our founders. Article V of our constitution allows for the states to call for a convention of states to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government through the proposal of constitutional amendments. Physicians should be the strongest supporters of this brilliantly-crafted states’ rights tool placed into our constitution by our founders.

I urge my fellow American physicians to join with me in supporting an Article V Convention of States to take back control of the practice of medicine. It’s the only way that we can return the practice of medicine back to the intimate relationship between a doctor and patient without interference by the heavy hand of a distant, national government.
