A Totalitarian Mindset

A Totalitarian Mindset

This is getting creepy.  George Orwell was amazingly prescient.

Now the White House wants you to spy on your neighbor?  I could see this from, but the White House?

Here’s is a word-for-word excerpt from the official White House Blog (found at

       “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”

Just what does the White House plan to do with this database?  Spy on fellow citizens?  That’s what totalitarians throughout time have done to control their citizens.

What about free speech?  What about the White House’s own disinformation? 
In two recorded speeches, Obama said that his healthcare plan was just the
first necessary step toward a one payer system, i.e. socialized medicine.  He went on to say that is his goal.  Now he says he doesn’t favor a one payer system.  And he and his supporters in Congress haven’t even read the bill!

And speaking of free speech, what about the White House dismissing and attacking those who attend town hall meetings in Congressional Districts as “mobs.”  I would think that a politician from Chicago would be able to
identify a real mob.

Nancy Pelosi said they were people carrying swastikas.  She said they were not grass roots protesters, just managed “Astroturfing” dissidents.

This is how Pelosi, Reed, and Obama treat average American citizens who are genuinely and understandably concerned with a government takeover of health care?

As I recall, it has been the left that has acted thuggish—throwing pies in the face of conservative speakers, shouting down those with whom they disagree, blocking access to attend speeches, breaking windows, and burning flags. 

Which ones are the mobs, the hard working average citizens who have turned out on their own to ask intelligent and informed questions about the proposed health care program, or the rabbles who harass and obstruct freedom of speech?

And as one parting shot, if you think this administration does not have a totalitarian mindset, check out this story on You Tube - - if it hasn’t already been taken off the air by the censors.
