    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".

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Completely off the mark, Wolfhound .
    My point is that the massive loss of votes from the Republican party in Kansas, a matter of record, did not shift to the

    Kansas Democrats.

    Kansas was hit harder and sooner by the Depression than almost any other agrarian state, IIRC. The collapse of soft winter wheat prices in 1930 was immediate, due to the Argentine policy of selling at any immediate price ( which proved wise, as the Argentines sold their bumper crop before prices declined even further). The massive collapse of hard spring wheat came a year later, when the Soviet Union starved it's Kulaks by seizing and selling.

    Are you SURE that you aren't a 'secret Democrat?"

Why don't you go ahead and hope that North Korea starts firing missiles over Japan, that China continues to threaten it's neighbors and disrupt the global economy, that Russia take the rest of the Ukrainian, that Western Europe continues to allow their defences to deteriorate, that the stock market collapse, that we have a recession, that minority employment returns to the norm, that our cities be torn apart by racial tensions, what exactly is it you wouldn't accept to satisfy your hatred.

    You are grasping at straws... Before I stated the thread, I suspect you had no idea who John Romulus Brinkley was...

    The facts are, in 1930 the Wheat states felt the coming depression first in America. the Republican vote swung away to Roosevelt's new party - or loose bag of various cats.
    Roosevelt's Congress was dominated by Bankhead's nascent
    Dixiecrats. Lip service was paid to the south's demand for the protection of State Segregation.

    Nice try at changing the subject to protect the Democratic party, but you failed.

    By 1930, segregation, everywhere but in the solid south, had been replaced by holding bimetal federal reserves and coining silver as the salient recent issue in the democratic government state platforms. The continuing rifts between the two major parties prevented easy voter transfer.

    The Republican establishment missed the warning signals . The prosperity is just around the corner and high tariff walls policy cost them dearly in 1932.

    That's probably is less relevant than the fact that the Democratic Party was the party of slavery and segregation. Remember Abe Lincoln was a divisive, backwoods, populace. You can't always get what you want but if you try real hard you can get what you need.

    It might be worth remembering that the AMA agreed with importing thousands of poorly trained foreign medical graduates who can't pass the mandatory qualification boards, yet you will find them everywhere including our little town, covering places like emergency rooms as physicians.

    The AMA is a political organization mostly focused on lobbying on behalf of physicians and looking out for their own. They do not police their own membership unless literally forced into it. Kind of like Congress.
