President Obama does not want you to know what he is doing. As it has been well documented already, there were eight (maybe more) times on the campaign trail Candidate Obama called for frank and open discussions of healthcare reform and for them to be televised live on CSPAN. Once he became President, though, that Idea was no longer “practical” and negotiations were conducted in backrooms with hushed voices. If it were not for Scott Brown (R-MA), they would have bartered and negotiated one sixth of our economy away on a government run healthcare system.
Now the President wants you to stop watching tv and reading blogs like this one. What he said was, “…if everybody here turned off their your CNN, Fox(news)… MSNBC, blogs…”, then he would be able to get things done. Why he said that is because he does not want you to know the details about or even think about the programs and reforms that he is trying to implement. He wants you to just lie there and take it, he will do what is best for all of us.
Well I do not think so Mr. President. You will not keep me from watching, you will not keep me from listening and you will not keep me from learning everything that I can about what you are trying to do to us and you will not stop me from passing that information on to other like-minded Americans. I will keep on blogging, I will keep on talking and I will keep on sharing. I will shine a light on every one of the policies, scams and schemes that this Administration is trying to keep in the dark. I for one will not be directed to the back seat of the bus and told to sit down and be quiet. I am an American! I will not let any man, I will not let any woman and I will not let any government deny me that rights that have been passed down to me by the Constitution.
Join me. Watch cable news, listen to talk radio, read blogs, newspapers and magazines. Learn all that you can. Do not fall for the lies and do not let a few people who’s names you do not even know, locked up in backrooms, determine our future.
Join me in this fight.
