This really chaps me! And Americans had better wake up - NOW! Barack Obama has given his seal of approval on the CMS' gag order issued against Humana and others. This gag order is to stop Humana from warning people of a possible loss of benefits which was corroborated by the Congressional Budget Office, a non-partisan statistical office. A gag order for speaking the truth? GOD HELP US!
Would you ever believe that a President of the United States would uphold an obvious violation of First Amendment rights just to silence objections to his pet projects, particularly since the opposition is revealing the truth about the project. This is the type of stuff you do when you know you're wrong but you don't want anyone pointing that out. No one has yet been able to tell where we're going to get the money to pay for the program.
So now, Obama, personally, has wielded the power to silence them through threats of lawsuits and whatever other methods his thugs can devise. That is not only unconstitutional, it is evil. If he gets away with this, (that is, if we let him get away with it!), we are done as a nation which values its citizens' personal freedoms protected under its Constitution. Allowing this illegal gag order to stand will set a precedent that before long will become the norm and very quickly reshape the United States into a nation without any individual rights remaining.
We just have got to do something about this. If our Congress won't stand up for us, we as individuals have to rise up again as individuals did in the 1770's and say, "ENOUGH!" Truth is, we're not being represented adequately by our Congress. We really have no representation. Therefore, we cannot sit idly by and allow our freedoms to be stripped away one at a time, layer by layer. If we don't wake up and do something now, in the blink of an eye, we will wake up and we won't recognize this country anymore.
Whether Humana intends to ignore or obey the gag order is not known to me. But regardless, I would urge everyone who reads this blog or the others I've written on this subject (found below) to send the link for this blog to your friends or copy the blogs and email them, or write friends and family and tell them about what is going on. Make them aware of how really dangerous this action by our President and his regime is. And let's get a sea of objection to this abhorrent action going with waves so strong they reach the White House and flood them with opposition.
Don't wait. If you value your basic freedom of speech, do it now while you still have the freedom of speech. Do it before you get yourgag order to cease and desist. I am, as you should be, extremely concerned that this is a but test case, and if this is not stopped right now, the next gag order is coming - to you and me!
