Off Topic: The so called "mobs" are actually succeding at least on ATS and hopefully with the government in time. It is amazing how many posters on
here who were calling anyone who objected to something Obama wants racist who are now WILLING to talk politely now and perhaps LISTEN!
Almost everyone I know, Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, or Independant, is FOR Health Care. That is NOT what was offered or rather DEMANDED by
Obama. What was being shoved down our throats was over a 1000 pages of legalese that most lawyers could not understand let alone the average citizen,
and it was DEMANDED that we SHUT UP and go along with it because Obama, who had not even read it just like our representitives, said so and it had to
be done NOW because Obama said so. The citizens in this country have been forced to buy so many pigs in a poke, meaning agreeing to bills that we do
not know what is in them, that they have had enough.
According to memory, about 30 years ago, there was a bill in Congress that would require ALL LAWS AND BILLS be written in language that the common
citizen could understand. It was VOTED DOWN. You are free to draw from that what you will.
If you really want to fix health care I think almost ANY citizen would be for it but when you come up with almost 1000 pages of legalize, give our
representitives no time to read it let alone US the citizens who will have to pay for it, DEMAND that we go along with it or you will demonize us as
racists, nazi's, terrorists, choose your own label, than send in union leg-breakers, than you are lucky if so called mobs is all you get. Put it in
simple language people understand, give people time to read and debate it, and quit demonizing those that have questions about it, instead clarify so
people can understand, than the health care in this country MIGHT get fixed.
The President of the United States is elected to LEAD, not dictate to or threaten the citizens of the United States, regardless if it is Bush OR
Obama. The statements of "WE won, get over it" do not apply to an election except maybe to say the election is over. It is something a man with a
gun to your head might say not those who are REALLY trying to bring people together or fix a problem. Most citizens of ANY stripe will find that
