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 MoveOn.org, but the White House?

down those with whom they disagree, blocking access to attend speeches,
breaking windows, and burning flags.

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?
