Well here is a new one for the record books if it is true. Apparently the party of the people under our new Community Organizer in Chief is supposed to be attempting to silence free speech. I would really like to tell you that I find this accusation to be absolutely ridiculous, but at this point and time I cannot because there appears to be some legitimacy and truth in the accusation.

For starters the White House has in recent days advertised a new email address for people to report fraudulent claims about the proposed healthcare reform bill that Obama wants and that Democrats in both houses of congress seem more than willing to push through. Of course they want everyone to think that the fraudulent claims are made by those who oppose the bill or the Democrats.

The Democrats are also getting ready to load up their town hall meetings with organizations who support them. This is in an effort to crush and silence the grass roots movements that have been organizing against them and their healthcare bill publically. All the while the Dem’s continue to claim that the town hall opposition is being organized by the GOP, insurance companies, and the like.

This is not the only time that the left has attempted to silence free speech and the right to assembly. They have recently attempted to attack free speech from the right in the form of The Fairness Doctrine as well. This would silence the right wing media machine in the form of talk radio from getting their message out to conservative listeners. It might also do damage to news outlets such as Fox News.

Another new and favorite tactic now being used by the loony left is the baseless accusations that all the town hall protesters are acting like Nazi’s and carrying symbols such as swastikas to their healthcare town hall meetings. The White House has even gone so far as to delegitimize the protesters at the town halls who are in an uproar by saying that those in opposition are showing manufactured outrage.

The truth of the matter is that with all of the other insane spending that has been done in the name of the tax payer people have just had enough. You really can’t blame them when nobody who is trying to pass this healthcare reform bill has even read it. If you will remember the same thing happened with the budget bill. Let’s face it there is only so much Democratic Party ineptitude the American people will stand for.

All of the current polling and facts even point to the reality that the healthcare bill has virtually no traction or support among the American people, or at least those who pay taxes and vote. Before there can even be any support for this bill there are a lot of serious questions that the people want answered, but they haven’t been yet.

I will tell you what I believe. I believe in the 1st amendment. I believe in freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and the right to public assembly. I also don’t believe in restricting either sides point of view either. I also believe that telling anyone what they can say publicly or privately is censorship as in denying anyone the right to assemble. I for one will exercise my 1st amendment rights as often as I want.

That is all for this subject on Simple Man Politics right now, but we will reserve the right to address this issue anytime it comes up. I hope you all have an awesome weekend and I will be back again next week my friends, CIAO4NOW!!!!!
