So what has the White House told supporters to do when you run across those who spread "disinformation" about the new attempt by the Obama administration to install the anti-competitive practices of a "public option" into a federalized universal health care initiative?
Whether its communicated through e-mail, websites, blogs, or even casual conversation the executive branch of the federal government is asking you to make them aware of this "disinformation" because they can't keep track of all of the dissenters themselves.
From Tuesday's White House blog entry: 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pardon me for asking such an obvious question, but what concern is it to the President or his administration if private citizens have disagreements, discussions, and dissections of his proposed take over of the health care industry?
Last I checked I had the constitutional right to do so.
But now he wishes to turn one citizen against another?
At dozens of the townhall meetings taking place back in individual districts this month, numbers of reports have surfaced that ACCORN members have taken to publicly berating normal citizens who are simply there to ask the questions they have about the viability of a plan that requires the Government to spend an additional $1,000,000,000 dollars. They wonder this especially when 85% of people in America are satisfied and content with the health insurance system they've already chosen to engage.
So what's the answer to good old fashioned grass roots voters actually being engaged with their Congressional Reps and U.S. Senators while they're home during the August break?
The White House believes it's best to intimidate and silence, or at the bare minimum--report.
The mistake this White House continues to make, seemingly on a daily basis, is that they reveal very much what they truly think of freedoms of the American political process.
Being generous we can conclude--it's not a very high opinion.
