Taking a much-needed break, but the rest of the Dakota Voice team will keep the heat on and the right feet to the fire.
Thursday night, author and speaker David Barton came to Rapid City to give a presentation at the South Dakota Family Policy Council’s “Fire Up” event.

If our leaders in Washington are unable or unwilling to come up with a uniquely American solution to the health care issue, and if the looming healthcare crisis continues to be exploited by leaders on the Left simply as a means to a greater ideological end, there is good reason to fear that the cold comfort of England’s “care pathway” approach to end-of-life care may be coming soon to a hospital near you.
