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, and 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… an 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.  IF 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 supersede all U.S. Law and the 2nd Amendment.  All citizen
possession will be eliminated through confiscation. Just Like Great Britain and

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 .

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

Snopes says this is true, if you hold any confidence in them .
