Is Dissent Still the Highest Form of Patriotism?

It seems that the President is very upset that people are actually questioning his health care plan. So much so that the White House wants to be informed of any forwarded emails, blog posts, or any “casual conversations” that could be taken as opposition to their health care overhaul plan.

What's more, those of you who object to government-run health care have been labeled "extremists" by AFL-CIO. They accuse citizens that are concerned about government run healthcare of using mob rule to disrupt town hall meetings and community forums set for the congressional recess. Senator Durbin also thinks that the people voicing their opinions in townhalls represent a very small portion of the populous that are puppets of evil insurance companies, and that, in reality, there is no dissent.

Well, people HAVE been disrupting town hall meetings. Its one thing to voice dissent, but some of the disruptions have been borderline incoherent and have not added to the conversation.

I oppose Obamacare. Did you see that, Obama-bots? I OPPOSE OBAMACARE.

Post a petition. I'll sign it, including my address and phone number so they know where to reach me for "re-education."
