In an effort to quell free speech, the Obama Administration has enlisted the help of “concerned citizens” to help them identify those who oppose Obamacare. Dissenters associated with anti-universal healthcare rhetoric – either by their connection to “chain e-mails” or even through “casual conversation” – should be reported to the White House according to a post at www.whitehouse.gov published Tuesday, August 4th, 2009 at 6:55 AM.
An excerpt of the post follows:
“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.”
What seems fishy to me is this administration’s complete disregard for, and utter contempt of, the Constitution. What also seems fishy is that our elected representatives seem to have taken little, if any, notice of this blatant flouting of our First Amendment rights.
Rest assured that as your Representative of Arkansas’ First Congressional District, I will not let actions like these go unchecked.
