That opening statement from Laura Ingraham's book, "Shut Up and Sing" has never been better demonstrated than it is now with Barack Hussein Obama.
On Election day, last November, 52% (reportedly) of Americans proved Obama was at least partially correct. Apparently, at least 52% of Americans really are stupid.
They voted for Obama despite all the evidence that he has no experience, no substance, no pride in America, and no qualifications. And yet 52% believed he was preferable to a genuine American hero.
He has demonstrated for years that he is a Marxist, and that he intends to create a Marxist state of the United States, but still 52% of Americans voted for him.
All the evidence was there in his questionable associations, his grandiose promises of "hope and change", while offering no glimpse of how he was going to accomplish these miracles, plus, most Conservatives such as myself, warned Americans that he is a danger to the American way of life, but to no avail. 52% ignored the warnings and the evidence.
He relied heavily on his belief that most Americans are willfully uninformed. And 52% of them obviously are.
Now that he is ensconced as President, we are witnessing the Socialization of America right before our very eyes in the form of this so-called stimulus bill.
They (Obama, Pelosi, and Reid, etc) trumpeted the benefits of this bill, citing the creation of millions of jobs, and the free flow of money into our economy that somehow was going to kick start the faltering economy and get it up and running like a well-oiled machine again.
Now, the language of his adoring minions in the media has changed somewhat. Now, they are saying the bill will create or "save" millions of existing jobs.
Note the subtle change. Now, maybe the bill won't actually create jobs. Now, maybe it will only save existing jobs. Maybe it will do both. Maybe it will do neither. None of us can be sure.
But, we are being asked to throw caution to the winds and blindly accept this concept, which is a crap shoot at best.
One thing I'm sure of, is that our nation, if this bill is implemented, will become a Communist collective, and our freedom and liberties will fall by the wayside. Once Obama gets to decide who gets what, there will be no stopping him. He will create an obligation in us to which we must acquiesce.
"If I give you x amount of money, you must in turn, do as I say. That is the price of my generosity".
His goal is complete, total, control.
Why don't Obama's fawning supporters see what he's doing? With this bill, he is in effect taking over control of every business in America. He will set the prices on goods and services. He will decide how much the workers earn. He will decide how much and what we can buy for our families. He will kill some industries such as oil and coal. He will dismantle our military. He will repeal the legislation that has kept us safe from terrorists attacks since 9/11. He will legitimize infanticide. He will ban the ownership of any type of firearm. He will squelch any speech that voices opposition to him or his policies.
The wheels are already in motion to accomplish those last two.
From there, it is a small step to re-education camps, forced labor, abolishing all dissension, purges, executions, and "dictator for life".
Fasten your seat belts. We're in for a bumpy ride. But, this time, we may not survive.
