DOWN BUT NOT OUT...

Attempts by Rep. Ron Paul to add special language to the omnibus spending bill in Congress, the one that will allow for mandatory mental health screening of children and all individuals eventually, has failed. Yet Mr. Paul is not giving up. World Net Daily has reported that he will continue his efforts when the new Congress convenes next year.

I have to admit, it is quite frightening to know that there are people within our own government who would o.k. such a measure. Much of the reports I've read point to the notion that the drug companies would benefit from this measure as it could potentially widen their market for anti-depressant drugs and behavioral modification medications such as Ritalin. This is why government intervention in private matters is a big no, no. Lets make sure to continue our support of Mr. Ron Paul in his efforts and get the word out to the media about this. I've sent several emails out so far in hopes of getting someone to do a serious profile of this issue.

Does anyone Know why such a measure is even being considered under a Republican Administration?

What is that saying....the road to destruction is paved with good intentions?
