By Ben Stein

Why was President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized medicine bill passed?

Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:

The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust
voted 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 better
and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

They ignored his anti-white writings in his books.

They ignored his
quiet 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 as
a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being 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 that the stimulus bill -- a great idea in theory -- was really an immense bribe to Democrat interest groups, and in no way helped all Americans.

The American people already know that Mr.. Obama's plan to lower health costs
while expanding coverage and bureaucracy is a myth, a promise of something that 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 betrayal of 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." She has also signed on to a Small Firearms Treaty at the U.N. This is a back door gun control move. This is approved by the Senate and a 2nd Amendment majority doesn't exist in the Senate now. It will supercede all U.S. Law and the 2nd Amendment. All citizen possession will be eliminated through confiscation. Just Like Great Britian and Australia .

Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will stop 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 .

Ben Stein is a writer, economist, and lawyer living in
Beverly Hills and Malibu . He writes "Ben Stein's Diary" for every issue of The American Spectator..

You must, as an American, FORWARD this, or you will wake up one morning and your freedoms are GONE..... No longer there.

A Veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or
reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a
check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life."

That is Honor
, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

    Who authorized the modification of Ben Stein's original article from the American Spectator >>http://spectator.org/archiv... adding the Small Firearms Treaty blurb? Neither Sec. Clinton nor Pres Obama can amend our Constitution regardless of the door they use! It would take another Amendment to change the 2nd Amendment! BTW, I say Bern Stein speaks plain and true!

    Ben Stein was President Nixon's speechwriter ! Personally, I liked Nixon and the country was doing fairly well during his administration. Opening up China to trade, in the long run, has not proved to benefit this country very much. Nixon, Stein, Reagan, both Bush's, Clinton, and Obama, regardless of party affilliation are all globalists and cut from the same cloth. Their agenda trumps the best interests of this country !
