I sent the following in response to the Hardball show, which accused Obamacare protesters of being racists:
When someone in these rallies complains about America being different than the way it was, I don't believe very many are referring to race.
Instead, they are unhappy about the increasing tax burdens, the outrageous deficits, the disdain for opposition to the Royal White House (whatever happened to "dissent is patriotic"?).
I am also concerned about the promotion of thuggish behavior by the SEIU and ACORN, which Obama's administration seemed unconcerned about. Yelling at a congressman is, although quite rude behavior, still legal. Pushing, shoving, and beating, all of which the pro-Obamacare people have engaged in over the last several days, is not.
We're frustrated. Our concerns are belittled; the representatives have admitted they haven't read the bill, and the provisions are still up for grabs in the different versions. Why the rush? This is an attempt to change 1/6 of the American economy RADICALLY, and to push it through fast.
The last time I was pressured by someone this hard, and told to make a decision RIGHT NOW, I was in a parked car. I fear that both that young man, and this administration, are looking for the same result.
