The hour is here. You know it's coming. You knew it's coming for a long time. The talks have droned on, but the forces of the night have already amassed on the Valley of Megido. Maybe you were too busy scraping a living to keep up- we all were. Maybe you have been justifiably cynical about the system. Maybe you've been exhausted from fighting all the other good and worthy fights. But no matter- war is upon us.
President Obama has lit the torches and sounded the clarion call: Man the battle stations! Answer the good president's call here:
President Obama wants to hear and air our personal healthcare stories. Don't let the insurance industry speak for you. They have spoken for us for far too long. They had been able to substitute reality with fictional fantasies unchallenged, like the Harry and Louise ads that sank Hillary Clinton's health care reform back in 1995. But that was then. This is now. This is the Web2.0 age. We have the power to tell our own tales now. The DLC is not going to tell our stories. The AMA is not going to tell our stories. The NYT is not going to tell our stories. It's up to us to tell our own stories. Send the link to your friends and loved ones who are struggling with healthcare nightmares -they are usually too exhausted to find these links on their own. Spread the word. Our stories will not be ignored this time.
