Ben Stein’s New Article

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 a 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.

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.

Hillary has also signed on to a Small Firearms Treaty at the U.N. This is a back door gun control move. If 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 Australia.

Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will stop him if he delays at all in taking away our freedoms. Thus his urgency and our opportunity. Once freedom is lost, America is lost. Wake up, beloved America.

  1. Ben Stein is a very insightful thinker and an experienced economist. He’s also enjoyable to read. Americans need to take his warnings in this piece quite seriously and act before our freedoms are lost forever. CDE

  2. Stein says… : …..”Barack Obama is a “super likeable, super leftist”, and not a fan of this country.”

    This is oft repeated….. Obama is “likeable” ……… What is likeable about him ? He is arrogant, looks down his nose ( literally) at virtually everyone and stumbles and bumbles without a Teleprompter……….Aaaand….He LIES…..Big Lies. Lies that effect everyone and their families.

    This “likeable” nonsense seems more like some PC moniker that everyone is required to make in order to be taken seriously when talking about this Major major Fraud-in-Office. I wonder if those in North Korea are also required to say this about THEIR Dear Leader ??

    • He’s not likable to YOU. he’s arrogant to you because you have probably been taught that a black man wasn’t capable of accinding to such heights, get over it, it was George bush and his crew that almost ruined the country., Obama brought it back, he’s smart and if he could he would really tell u what he cares about your opinions of him , he’d tell you to go f*#k yourself.

      • Thanks for your (typical) “trenchant” Liberal Leftist Democrat remark.

        Obama of the “You can keep your Doctor if you like your doctor” lie would no doubt “tell me to go f*#k myself …. as he is daily telling America and Americans to do just that.

        As to being “taught” about “black folk”…….. experience and observation and reflection is all the Teaching one needs about anything really.

      • If OWEbozo has fixed anything in your life…… you have to be either a union member, a gov’t worker or sucking off the gov’t tit. I could spend hours telling you and the rest of the kool-aid drinkers about his lies, but it would be a waste of time trying to essentially educate a pile of rocks.
