Commissar Obama is Counting on You
I am not aware of any precedent for a president asking American citizens to report their fellow citizens to the White House for pure political speech that is deemed "fishy" or otherwise inimical to the White House's political interests.Don't hold your breath, senator. The Democratic Left, including Obama, are drunk with power and cannot be reached through reason. In fact, the New Democrats and their far left allies are doing all the can to silence dissent. Therefore, the senator has left me little choice but to report his "fishy" letter to the proper authorities.
As Congress debates health care reform and other critical policy matters, citizen engagement must not be chilled by fear of government monitoring the exercise of free speech rights.
So I urge you to cease this program immediately. At the very least, I request that you detail to Congress and the public the protocols that your White House is following to purge the names, email addresses, IP addresses, and identities of citizens who are reported to have engaged in "fishy" speech. And I respectfully request an answer to the following:
•How do you intend to use the names, email addresses, IP addresses, and identities of citizens who are reported to have engaged in "fishy" speech?
•How do you intend to notify citizens who have been reported for "fishy" speech?
•What action do you intend to take against citizens who have been reported for "fishy" speech?
I look forward to your prompt response.
