"They Drink The Sand 'Cause They Don't Know The Difference"

From Digby

The lack of true understanding in those who are voicing opposition to health care shows the true power of propaganda that is broadcast through our radio and televisions today. These people think that Obama is personally going to dismantle our country and remake it in the image of Russia. Russia. Why, if he was going to remake our country into anothers image, would he chose Russia? Why not France, or Japan, or, Finland?

This is about reforming health care, for crying out loud. This is about (hopefully, in it's ideal form) making it possible for Americans to have affordable health insurance. It's about imposing just enough regulation on an industry so they can't tell you that "sorry, we can't help you, but thanks for paying those premiums all those years" when you get sick and need them to do what you actually paid them to do.

These people are ok with us going to war, but we can't have universal healthcare?
