Americans Retaliate Against W.H. Snitcher-y Request

A few days ago I put up an article on the White House request that we turn in fellow Americans for “fishy” health care comments, which is a violation of our first amendment rights. Talk about political incorrectness! You would think the leader of the free world would know better, or maybe he is simply showing his true colors!

I was so steamed that I responded directly to the president, sending him a list of my own concerns and pointing out such a request is a no-no, which I later posted here.   Since then I have been busy e-mailing to the governor, senators and representatives AND the chairman of the GOP, forwarding them my letter to Obama, prefacing with an explanation.  Please, please take a few moments and do the same. Get your voice out there!

I have been hearing on the news that Americans all over are very upset over the health care issue, Obama’s lack of truthfulness, or as he put it “transparency”, and a complete lack of response from government officials who are required to give us straight-forward and truthful answers.  Some may have forgotten but the American government is answerable to it’s citizens.  Instead of providing us with answers we have been branded as trouble makers, some going as far to suggest the questioning is staged.  UNBELIEVABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE.  They do this to get us to shut up and to shut us out.  Don’t fall for it!

I am very happy to find that other Americans have the same view as I and have been making quite a noise!  This is what we need to continue to do. We put them in office by our vote, we pay their salaries by our tax money, that we work hard at our jobs to earn, therefore we need to hold them accountable maybe more now than ever.

Obama ‘Snitch” Program Put On Notice from Worldnet Daily here.

The Center for American Law and Justice or ACLJ, sent a letter to President Obama today, warning, “This citizen reporting program raises significant First Amendment concerns.

An attorney for Red State noted that the White House’s actions may be in violation of current U.S. law:

According to 5 U.S.C. § 552a, United States agencies including the Executive Office of the President shall, ‘maintain no record describing how any individual exercises rights guaranteed by the First Amendment unless expressly authorized by statute or by the individual about whom the record is maintained or unless pertinent to and within the scope of an authorized law enforcement activity.'”

Attorney Eric Erickson noted, “This will be the first significant time the White House has ignored the Privacy Act and may open President Obama up to litigation.” (emphasis mine)

>>So, does Obama not know the law or is he simply ignoring it?  Remember, Notre Dame recently awarded Obama with a bogus law degree.  However, ignorance of the law is not an excuse for breaking it, especially when you own the title of the highest and most powerful in the land.<<

As WND reported, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, demanded that Obama either halt the program or define how he will protect the privacy of those who send or are the subject of e-mails to the White House.

“I am not aware of any precedent for a president asking American citizens to report their fellow citizens to the White house for pure political speech that is deemed ‘fishy’ or otherwise inimical to the White House’s political interests,” the Texas senator wrote in a letter to Obama.

“By requesting that citizens send ‘fishy’ e-mails to the White House, it is inevitable that the names, e-mail addresses, IP addresses, and private speech of U.S. citizens will be reported. … You should not be surprised that these actions taken by your White House staff raise the specter of a data collection system.”

Cornyn continued, “I urge you to cease this program immediately. At the very least, I request that you detail to Congress and the public the protocols that your White House is following to purge the names, e-mail addresses, IP addresses, and identities of citizens who are reported to have engaged in ‘fishy’ speech.” (emphasis mine)

Be encouraged, some out there are still looking out for the American people!

White House Calls For Snitches!

From the White House “blog”-

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 flag@whitehouse.gov. (emphasis mine)

Listen, save your fellow Americans the hassle of snitching on you. Call the White House, write letters, send faxes and e-mails to Obama, your senators, governors, representatives, etc. It is our right and privilege granted by our Constitution as Americans to question ALL of our leaders and to hold them responsible for every decision they make and for each law they propose. It is their responsibility to provide truthful answers to our questions without branding Americans as conspiracy theorists, crazy or disinformed.

This administration who claimed “transparency” is instead shrouded in darkness!

This “request” by the White House is against our freedom of speech at the most intimate level, our communication with each other, our family and our friends!  Think about it!  What does that say to you??  What will they do with the information once they receive it?

Invite us for a beer?

I am against Obama’s health care reform proposal they way it stands.  Snitch away, I don’t care, as I plan on writing many letters on my own alleviating the need for snitching!

I am against the government making decisions about my health, based on my age, my lifestyle, condition and medical prognosis.

I am against the government paying for abortions.

I am against the government counseling the aged to “die with dignity”  no matter what wording gets slapped on to it.

I am against the government providing illegal aliens with health care that they do not have to pay for.  (Illegal aliens shouldn’t be allowed here, but that’s another topic.)

I am against anyone making a decision based on life and freedom that was given freely to us all by God Almighty -period.

There is no conspiracy in what I and many, many other people are screaming about here. We do not like it. We are not going for it!

Why pay for a product we do not want??? As consumers, whenever we purchase a product we expect that the product to perform according to the claims. In purchasing health care, either through the government or private carrier, whether the money comes from payroll deductions or from paying taxes we would expect the health care to be sane, fair and reasonable, holding the health, safety and welfare of all Americans in high esteem. Health care is a product.

When a product breaks down, we send it back.

Obama’s health care reform is broken, send it back.

It’s gettin’ scary out there guys!
