Full disclaimer: I voted for Obama. I wanted a change from apparent direction this country was heading in the previous administration. And I believed in Obama’s campaign ideas of a better America.

But I also think it will be a tremendous mistake if the healthcare bill, as it is currently written, passes into law. I think it has become far too distorted and amended from its’ original version to be a viable healthcare option for this country.

I would like your help in changing the healthcare bill before it is too late.

I just registered stopthisbill.org .net and .com. and stopthatbill.org, .net and .com to try and make a difference.

This new website I created has a simple initial petition. I want the health care reform bill, as it is written now, stopped and re-considered.

My hope is that the initial petition, after reaching a few thousand names, will attract enough legislative attention to stop the existing health care bill before it is enacted into law.

I also added a simple discussion forum on this website in the hopes that a second petition can be created through community forums. A second petition, authored by the internet community, that specifically outlines what should be in the healthcare plan and what should not be.

I think there’s a great collective intelligence online, and I would very much appreciate any help in signing the initial petition, and creating a second directive-based petition.

Hopefully this little project will draw some attention in a positive way to get the idea of healthcare back on track.

For now, I’ve added a page-peel effect in the upper right corner of this website to push some traffic to stopthisbill.org. And I’m going to cross-post this announcement on some other blogs I’m a member of tonight and tomorrow.

Please feel free to tell me what you think about this idea either here or on the stopthisbill.org website or emailing me at admin(at)stopthisbill.org.

We now return you to the personal website already in progress…
