"Mandates requiring every citizen participate in a government led healthcare system"
Free men choose.... slaves obey.
Hundreds of cheering "tourists" have gathered outside the White House to celebrate Usama bin Laden's death at the hands of the US military, but there's something suspicious here... these crowds had started forming >hours< before President Obama's announcement that bin Laden had been killed.
How did these hundreds of young, cheering, flag-waving patriots know to be outside the White House if the content of Obama's announcement hadn't even been released to the news media until 10:30? One mainstream (read liberal) media outlet describes these crowds as "tourists." Really? Tourists are assembling outside the White House with American flags for a presidential address, whose content even the press isn't aware of?
No, this smells an awful lot like "astro turfing", something meant to look natural but actually fake and plastic.
In this case, it appears that this spontaneous outpouring of flag-waving Americans into the streets were actually party faithful, tipped off and assembled by their party leaders to cheer in front of the television cameras while President Obama made his announcement of bin Laden's death.
And its pretty blatant. You just can't believe that all of these (really young) "tourists" suddenly obtained (really big) American flags and appeared (really quickly) outside the White House because of an announcement they heard on television only five minutes before.
