I grow weary of rule by hate and fear. I truly embrace the idea of change and hope; however, history shows that hate and fear works best with the masses. I now find myself using the same tactics to make the point of needed health care reform.

We should fear the massive health care insurance company beasts. They are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars daily just to kill any reform of health care, and they give out millions in campaign contributions to our politicians.

These imposing and monstrous companies are showing record profits, and their CEOs are pulling down millions in annual bonuses, yet they still want us to pay more in premiums.

Business as usual; just close your eyes and pretend it’s not there. Who knows, maybe we will get lucky and get “trickled-down” on.
