It is clear that we are winning the fight against President Obama’s proposals to create a government-run health care behemouth. And the cronies and special interest groups who want to ram Obama’s $2 trillion monstrocity on the American people are running scared. So scared that they are resorting to dirty tricks and desperate measures. Knowing that we have the truth on our side, they are resorting to lies, deceit and finally intimidation and violence to prevent the truth from coming accross.

Earlier this week, the White House issued a call for informants to report criticisms of the President’s Plan. Then, the Democratic National Committee smeared hundreds of thousands of law abiding tea party protestors calling them "a fringe group". "Nuts". An "angry mob".

That’s right, the ideology that riots at the drop of a hat have the gall to call peaceful tea party attendees an angry mob. Now see what health care opponents actually look like in this brilliant photo essay by Dana Loesch .

Yet these smears also failed.

So now they seek to silence us. The President himself said dissent must be supressed.  Just yesterday he told supporters: “I don’t want the folks who created the mess doing a lot of talking. I want them to just get out of the way so we can clean up the mess” (apparently dissent is unpatriotic after all).

So. How do you best silence dissent? How do you get people "out of the way"? You bring in the thugs. And no-one knows intimidation better than the SEIU.

After one town hall yesterday in St. Louis,  over six people were arrested outside after SIEU thugs intimidated and prevented people from attending a Town Hall.   Democrat event organizers slammed one senior citizen into the wall as he and his wife tried to enter. One activist was taken to the Emergency Room of St. John’s Mercy Medical Center , to be treated for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face that he suffered in the attack after being attacked by Obama supporters. These arrests included two people for suspicion of assault, three on suspicion of committing disturbance of the peace, and one for resisting arrest.

In Tampa, Florida, another protester was pushed in the face by Democratic Club Treasurer Karen Miracle, and union members allegedly assaulted another concerned citizen.

There is no doubt about it. There is a clear, deliberate and well thought out strategy by the left to harass and intimidate the American people. We can NOT let them get away with it.

I spent 25 years living in a country that had socialized health care. Where cities of millions of people have less MRI machines than small country towns here. Where at this very moment the city I used to live has over 60,000 people on a waiting list for sugery. I have a friend who had to wait over 3 years – and was only seen after threatening his Member of Parliament he’d raise the matter with the media! Another of my friends contracted potentially-deadly septhesemia after his appendix burst in a hospital waiting room. He’d been there for 16 hours. Untreated. I can go on.

I know all too well the danger we are in if this proposal gets enacted and we are forced down the slippery slope to socialised medicine.

We can not be intimidated. We must fight this every step of the way. Make your voice heard. Take action today.

UPDATE: President Obama stated that “I expect to be held responsible, but I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking.” Translation: If you don’t agree with me, shut up.

UPDATE 2: Nancy Pelosi blatantly lies and claims tea party supporters are "carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare."
