The Obama White House is calling for informer-citizens to denounce opponents of the president’s health care plan. A post on the White House website posted today reads:
There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there. 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 email@example.com.
Although the Obama administration has yet to call for prosecuting Obamacare opponents, the fact they are compiling a list of suspects is seriously troubling and reveals the authoritarian mindset of the administration.
It also brings to mind Nixon’s enemies list compiled by convicted criminal Charles Colson. Nixon’s list of political opponents would eventually total of over 30,000 names.
Considering the large number of Americans opposed to Obamacare, it is possible Obama’s list of political enemies may exceed that number in short order.
Facts Are Stubborn Things
Posted by Macon Phillips
Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, "facts are stubborn things."
Scary chain emails and videos are starting to percolate on the internet, breathlessly claiming, for example, to "uncover" the truth about the President’s health insurance reform positions.

That video was some nice spin put forth by professionals in the spin business. This is still just a call to report on anything or anyone who opposes his plan.
The truth is I'm all for health care reform. I honestly believe it's a good idea.
I'm just not sure I can get behind the spin attack they seem to be planning against anyone that differs with them.

Without touching the debate on what should be done with healthcare,
These tactics are very disturbing.
Combine them with the Department of Homeland Security's new inward focus on "Right Wing Extremists" as potential terrorists and Obama's desire for a Citizens Defense force with 3 moths mandatory service and you begin to get a picture of their version of Change.

There is another post similar to this.
What I wrote there, I will write here. . . .
BTW, can't get enough notification about this topic, people need to know!!!
Will they just take names on this site or will they be monitoring it?
If they're monitoring it, I have a statement.
I, Mike Russell, think your plan sucks. I have read large portions of it, which is more than you or any member or congress and the house can say. Your weak and febrile attempts at coersion and threats will not work.
I have lived in Chicago and know what kind of game you are playing. This latest attempt at threats, to silence anyone who fails to agree with you, smacks of Stalinistic tactics.
In Sol Alinskys' book, "Rules For Radicals" rule number 13 states:
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and 'frozen.'...
Bullpoop. You are not going to get away with it. You and your cronies can have their fun for three and a half more years but then playtime will be over and the grown-ups will have to come back and clean up the mess you Ivory Tower elitists have created.
We win. You lose. It is as simple as that. Get used to losing because that is the taste you are going to have in the back of your mouth for the next few years.
Now, who's going to be the first to turn me in?
I call dibs on the bottom bunk at Obamas FEMA/re-education camp and spa!!!
