Got this in the mail from one of my Democrat contact today. As you can see, the Dems have by no mean given up trying to fake widespread public support for their Headlong rush to Socialism, and are trying to make it look like it’s grassroots:
Last night, your representative, Rep. Charlie Gonzalez, cast a courageous vote to help pass comprehensive health reform. After months of debate and decades of false starts, this was the biggest step yet on the path to making real health insurance reform a reality.
But before health reform can become law, it must pass one more time through the House of Representatives. The insurance companies will be throwing everything they can at changing Rep. Gonzalez’s vote for the final round, so it’s crucial that we publicly show that the voters in your district support reform and are counting on Rep. Gonzalez to stand firm.
One of the best ways to help is to write a letter to the editor of a local newspaper thanking Rep. Gonzalez for supporting health reform. Can you write one today?
You don’t have to be an expert to write a very powerful letter. We’ll provide helpful information about the House bill and health reform. But the best content comes from you.
You can tell your personal story about why health reform matters to you, your family, and your community. You can write about how important it is that our representatives stand with their constituents and not the special interests — as Rep. Gonzalez did last night. What matters the most is that you write from the heart and speak out as a concerned citizen at this crucial time.
With reform’s passage out of the House, there are three major steps left, and it’s going to be a fight the whole way: the Senate will soon vote on their version of bill, then there will be a last round of negotiations to combine them, and then a final vote in both the House and Senate.
Your words could mean all the difference as we take the next steps toward passing reform this year.

Obviously, they’re trying to make it look like there’s widespread support for the Pelosi Public Option Bill by writing letters to the local papers. By addressing them to the local Representatives and including personal sob-stories about Healthcare nightmares, they’re trying to lay the patina of emotionalism over them to keep them from being critiqued.
So I have a suggestion: write a letter to your local newspaper. Tell them how you think this Health Care Bill will destroy our freedoms and individual liberties; how it will crush us with new taxes and limit our health care options and ration health care.
If you have a personal story of how our current Health Care system saed your life or someone you know, include that too.
