Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for courtesy on Sunday in the debate on health care reform via her Facebook page.
There are many disturbing details in the current bill that Washington is trying to rush through Congress, but we must stick to a discussion of the issues and not get sidetracked by tactics that can be accused of leading to intimidation or harassment, Palin wrote.
Such tactics diminish our nation’s civil discourse which we need now more than ever because the fine print in this outrageous health care proposal must be understood clearly and not get lost in conscientious voters’ passion to want to make elected officials hear what we are saying, she said.
Let’s not give the proponents of nationalized health care any reason to criticize us, she continued.
She also urged reform opponents on Sunday not to give the opposition fodder by disrupting town halls.
A few days ago, Palin made an extraordinary comments suggesting that President Obama's health care reform will result in a death panel that is fundamentally evil.
