    There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can't keep track of all of them here at the White House, we're asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.
    Now please pray tell how they are collecting an enemy list as the OP ridiculously claims?

    Once again....they want the letters forwarded to them....and that would include all the headers and sourcing information.

    Duh!

    You do know that all kinds of identifying information is embedded in an email that is forwarded, correct?

    Oh you didn't know that? Well no wonder you had such a half assed assessment of the situation.

    Compiling a list of emails, presumably with email addresses attached, of people who they believe may be spreading disinformation isn't compiling an enemies list? What legitimate purpose would they have in collecting such information? Further, even if their purpose is legitimate, how many times in recent memory has the government collected information and had it subsequently misused?

    Try to be honest for a moment: what would you say if the Bush White House had done the same thing?

    That is the problem, NO ONE is compiling email addresses. As for legitimate purpose, there is A LOT of misinformation being passed around as truth scaring citizens half out of there mind. The Whitehouse would like to keep the swift boating to a minimum. In all honesty i would not have an issue if any adminstration keep the lies out of honest debate in moving the country forward.

    Empty ignorant responses should be ignored but noted. These people lack the intellect to carry on intelligent discussions or to recognize the move under way to move this Nation away from the Democratic Republic that made it the Nation Obama wants to change in the manner of Dictatorship of the last Fuhrer.
    Just compare what Obama is doing with the actions of (and I don't care what names you want to call me for telling the truth) Adolph Hitler, and point by point you will if you were honest to yourself see it. But then there is little chance of Honesty from Obama followers.
    I don't need to give one of Obama's minions my email information as as they have had it for some time I get regular propaganda from the White House already because of my job.

    Just calling it like I see it, pal. If what you say is true, it would have dawned on you immediately how dense your comment really was.

    Who is surprised that ANYONE would want to know who is talking about them and specifically for the White House who is against their Health care bill?

    If I am running a project I want to know who is publicly and privately rallying against me so I can talk with and try to persuade them to understand.

    Again. You disagree with facts and therefore name call in stead of presenting a decent argument. boohoo. Go whine to someone who cares.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.
