My wife, who's not typically the activist type, was outraged enough at Obama's e-snitch program to write a note to our friends at firstname.lastname@example.org. I guess we're now doomed to be on "the list":
To whom it may concern,
I am quite concerned over this request of sending questionable e-mails or conversations relating to the Health Care Reform Plan.
Are you asking us to be watchdogs, to turn people in for expressing their personal opinion and/or feeling about the reform if they are in disagreement?
I am an American citizen. My parents fled their homeland(Cuba), along with my sister and I, because of such practices by the government of their country.
I am fearful this request is a step in the wrong direction. The First Amendment protects American citizens from government restriction on free speech. Where do we draw the line? If we continue down this bumpy road and government intrudes on our right to express whatever opinion, as fishy or valid as it may be, where are we to flee?
