Why is President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get hissocialized medicine billpassed?
Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:
The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trustvoted for a pig in a poke in 2008. Pig in a poke means: an offering or deal that is foolishly accepted without being examined first. A poke means sack. They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow betterand different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith. They ignored his anti-white writings in his books. They ignored hisquiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister,Jeremiah Wright..
They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student. They ignored his ultra-left record as a "community organizer,"Illinois state legislator, and Senator.
The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record asa student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he wasbeing touted as a scholar.
Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth.Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan of this country, the American people have already awakened to the truth thatthe stimulus bill -- a great idea in theory -- was really an immensebribe to Democrat interest groups, and in no way helpedall Americans.
The American people already know that Mr. Obama's plan to lower health costswhile expanding coverage and bureaucracy is a myth, a promise of somethingthat never was and never can be --"a bureaucracy lowering costs in a free society."
Either the costs go up or the free society goes away... a historical truth. These are perilous times.. Mrs. Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State,has given Iran the go-ahead to have nuclear weapons, an unqualified betrayalof the nation. Now, we face a devastating loss of freedom at home in health care.It will be joined by controls on our lives to "protect us "from global warming,itself largely a fraud if believed to be caused by man." Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and willstop him if he delays at all in taking away our freedoms..There is his urgency and our opportunity. Once freedom is lost,America is lost. Wake up, beloved America .
