Like a fighter backed up against the ropes, Obama is starting to throw punches at the enemies of his healthcare reform proposals. Calling his opponents “outlandish” who are armed with “misleading information,” the President is surveying the political landscape, seeing more and more dissent arise from a continuously frustrated American public, and is lashing out like the great demagogue that he is:
“Some have been using misleading information to defeat what they know is the best chance of reform we have ever had,” Obama said, adding it was critical for Americans to have all the facts as they meet their lawmakers in home districts.
Obama’s aides and fellow Democrats have charged that protests staged at some “town hall”-style meetings held by congressional Democrats have been orchestrated by Republican- and industry-backed groups and conservative talk-show hosts, and are calling for a more civil dialogue.
Why is is that whenever the current US regime finds opposition to statist policies, it is always the work of some “conspiracy?” Two decades ago, the Clinton gang thought a “right-wing conspiracy” was stifling their agenda, and the Bush junta and its allies smeared anyone who opposed the invasion of a defenseless, starving Iraq as “unpatriotic?”
The opposition to Obama’s dangerous healthcare initiatives are growing, and the failures of government-run industries (especially healthcare) are beginning to be exposed.
Stefan Molyneux has a great critique of socialized medicine at his excellent internet radio show at Freedomainradio.

In the second part, he exposes the disastrous failures of Canadian’s healthcare system:
Opponents of state-controlled healthcare don’t seem so “outlandish” to me.
