The White House Wants YOU!

The White House has decided that it's now a good idea to inform on your fellow citizens. Not everyone agrees:
Dissent is patriotic - not: "'I can only imagine the level of justifiable outrage had your predecessor asked Americans to forward e-mails critical of his politics to the White House,' Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, wrote in a letter to President Obama. 'I suspect that you would have been leading the charge in condemning such a program.'"
I honestly can not understand how the same people who panicked over Terrorism Threat Levels and government wire tapping are willing to instigate a program for informing on those with a different opinion.

For the record, I expect to be reported to Flag@whitehouse.gov very soon, but I'm also wondering what they use for a spamfilter, because it could easily be the most repeated email address in the country right now.
