Silence the opposition!

Published on: 8/6/2009

From The White House web site:  http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Facts-Are-Stubborn-Things/

"There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.  These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation.  Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov."

Yes, you read that correctly.  The Orwellian White House wants to silence the opposition to Obama's Health Care reform proposal.  They want names!  American citizens should narc on those who disagree with The One.  Who doesn't like Obama's plan!?!  Let the White House know!    Isn't this simply ironic, coming from a President who, during the presidential campaign, told us he wanted to unite the country - and he wanted to listen to both sides?

That was then, this is now.  Democratic tyranny reigns in the White House.  The neophyte man-child posing as a President doesn't care that most Americans do NOT want his health care proposal. (52% at last count.)  Another startling statistic is that 80% of Americans who do have their own health care want to keep it - they don't want the government plan!   Besides, the bill, HR3200,  actually has very little to do with "health" or "care."  The main intent of Obamacare is to allow the government to take over and control more of our lives.  To take away more of our freedoms.  The bill is bad - plain and simple.  

(Read the bill for yourself, since most of the politicians in Washington, DC, have not:

The Liberty Council dissects HR3200 and points out the many questionable and/or frightening passages:  http://www.lc.org/media/9980/attachments/healthcare_overview_obama_072909.pdf)

To his credit,  Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas),  wrote a letter to President Obama asking him to disband the Internet Snitch program run out of the health care czar’s office:

Cornyn wrote:  “By requesting citizens send ‘fishy’ emails to the White House, it is inevitable that the names, email, addresses, IP addresses and private speech of U.S. citizens will be reported to the White House.  You should not be surprised that these actions taken by your White House staff raise the specter of a data collection program.”

Senator Cornyn asked Obama to end this "Big Brother" activity right now - or at least tell the public what the President and the White House plan on doing with the information they collect.

Wonder how all those who were up in arms over President Bush's "warrantless wiretap program" after 9/11  will defend this?  And remember, Bush's program targeted suspected terrorists who were making long distance phone calls between foreign countries and the United States.  The program was designed as a tool to fight terrorism and protect the United States.  People were bursting a blood vessel, claiming this program violated our rights!    Well folks, here we have a program designed to turn in fellow Americans who DON'T LIKE  Obama's Health Care reform proposal!  Voice your opinion or state facts that contradict Obama - and you might be flagged!   Whatever happened to the First Ammendment?  Scary stuff, isn't it? 

Maybe the reason Obama wants to remove the terrorists from Club Gitmo is to make room for those Americans who disagree with him?
