    I suppose the question isn't why have an AMA but why physicians are not certified by a government agency. Licencing is done by the States. Currently the American Board of Medical Specialties is the leading certification organization.​​​​​​ The AMA is a professional organization that indirectly controls licencing and certification.
    The AMA is a political lobbying group that collects money from physicians. It doesn't police anybody. For that, you must go to your state medical board and present proof of malpractice or felonious behavior.

    Don't expect much. Physicians are like lawyers, unwilling to punish their own.

      I can't answer your question. When I lived in Kansas I didn't pay any attention to politics and it was not discussed at home.

      Until recently I voted for Democrats fairly often. I'm not sure why but it could be I have never been interested in money or material possessions.
      Possibly now. In 1930, high gluten wheat for bread rising was a spring wheat .https://www.nytimes.com/1930/09/28/a...on-report.html

      The soviet rumour was at least two ears premature - but it touched off a panic in a staggering wheat market.

        Until the 1870s the wheat being grown in Kansas was mostly "spring wheat," seeded in the spring and harvested in late summer. The region's hot, dry summers took a toll on this plant, though, and it never prospered. Many early Kansans doubted wheat would ever be a success here.
        In this 1918 extension bulletin it clearly states that spring wheat was extremely rare in Kansas.

          Kansas has a vibrant socialist history. In the 1960s some of my relatives still had socialist leanings, especially if they had been to University and were upper middle class farmers. It is kind of at odds with the idea that the educated middle class is the backbone of society. What it hints at is how vacuous and virtue signaling if not outright hypocritical the middle class tends to be. The strivers don't love the poor they just hate the "rich".
