I read "Fall could be mean season for Obama" (Opinion, Clarence Page, Sept. 4).

Upon reading the column, I sought to do further research into the proposed health care reform via the Internet. I, like most young American adults, used for my research. I searched "Obama’s health care reform bill" and received several hits. [Many of] the top 10 sites were either Republican propaganda against the bill or other forms of negative information.

It then occurred to me that the problem with the approval rating of this proposal might be the fault of its opposition. I mean, many Americans rely on the Internet for most of their information and take the information found there as law.

This being the case, I find that if Americans were to read the reform bill for themselves without being accosted by naysayers, they might harvest a different opinion. I am a Democrat and cannot comment on the bill for lack of the ability to read it for myself.

It is the duty of every voting American to seek out the information for himself. Do not allow party affiliation or propaganda to make your decisions for you.
