We also "loose something essential about ourselves" when we oppose health care legislation. We also need to "replace acrimony with civility" — that's what the President believes needs to happen in the health care debate.

Here's what I believe. We can be as acrimonious, and flat-out reject the Left's interpretation of "wise policy," and not loose a damn thing by speaking our mind and saying "no."

We need realistic alternatives. We need health reform. But we don't need Obamacare.
