Rally Against ABC and Nationalized Healthcare

The following pictures were taken at last night's rally in front of the ABC building in Salt Lake City. About 250 people came out to protest ABC's one-sided reporting of the President's proposed nationalized healthcare plan.

Our current senators and representatives were back in Washington preparing for the upcoming votes on Cap and Trade and Card Check, but they arranged for assistants from their local offices to read their messages about the ills of socialized medicine and the pitfalls of the President's plan to the quietly protesting crowd. The highlight of the evening was the broadcast of an address that then-actor Ronald Reagan gave in 1961 or 1962 declaring government sponsored healthcare as a giant step toward socialism, and a serious threat to our country. His message was eerily applicable to our situation today.
