The Anti-Socialized Medicine Blog Post Contest: This Week’s Winner And Next Week’s Contest

Last week, I announced a blog contest that pays $50 to the best anti-socialized medicine post in the blogosphere.

The winner on the first week is the Daily Danet for the post, “Why Healthcare Is Not A Right.” He’ll receive $50 for that post.

A new contest begins tomorrow and runs through next week. Here’s the info on this week’s contest.

I’ve started working with the David All Group for a few of their clients in the health care space. Towards that end, one idea I pitched to them was a way to drive more stories about the benefits of the free-market health care system versus a single-payer socialized approach like the one offered by Barack Obama.

What I am going to do is hold a contest per week, for 3 more weeks, designed to promote the best anti-socialized medicine posts in the blogosphere.

What will happen is that bloggers will write posts about socialized medicine. They can write them specifically for the contest or just because that’s what they happen to want to write about today, but once they write the post, they’ll send me an email letting me know that they want it entered in the contest (Yes, I do have to get an email. Sorry, but these are the rules I am working under).

Then, at the end of the week, I will select the best articles from that week on socialized medicine, will rank them, and then will link all the top posts on RWN. Furthermore, all the bloggers that rank will have the satisfaction of getting their work recognized and will get traffic from RWN — but first place will also receive $50.

The second contest begins on Fri, Aug 29 and the winners will be announced on Fri, Sept 5th. So, write those posts about socialized medicine, email me the links, and then make sure to tune in next Friday and link the winners!
