P. T. Barnum was an American showman and founder of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. He was also widely known for his flamboyant style and elaborate hoaxes. A famous quote from the audacious showman says a quite a lot about his take on humanity; “There’s a sucker born every minute.” A born pitchman if there ever was one, Barnum could sell tickets to throngs of inquisitive and often skeptical people hoping to see some strange human oddity that they almost certainly knew would turn out to be a fake.
While we all understand that P. T. Barnum was an entertainment showman, his business philosophy was always the same – sell the hoax. And while we may not see ourselves as “suckers,” in the truest sense of the word, that’s what we are if we pay for something we seriously doubt is real and then complain later. It’s called “caveat emptor, which for us country folk translates, “let the buyer beware.” Or, as my father in law so aptly puts it, “You pay a little more, but you get a whole lot less.”
It seems more obvious every day that America is now under the leadership of a far greater pitchman than even P. T. Barnum could have ever imagined. President, or should I say, pitchman Obama’s understanding of humanity seems eerily similar with that of P. T. Barnum.
For starters, Obama obviously believes, as Barnum did, that “there’s a sucker born every minute,” and that selling his entire socialist plan for America depends on it. Obama’s delusional circus has been traveling around our great land for six months now with the Ringmaster-in-Chief telling everyone that his economic plans are working to perfection, even though the facts tell a completely different story. Obama knows he has to convince enough “suckers” that his plans are actually working in order to continue his socialist agenda.
President Obama is pitching the biggest economic and social hoax in history to the American people. If he is successful, in a few short years, the social, political and financial landscape of America will be transformed from a capitalist to a more European-socialist style economy. Unfortunately, Obama’s smooth talking and slick pitch skills seem to be fooling enough people for him to achieve his socialist goal.
Much of what Obama has learned about leading, or shall I say, misleading people, came from the activist ringmaster extraordinaire himself, Saul Alinsky. This diabolical Chicago community organizer was instrumental in implementing the “Chicago way” of politics back in the early sixties. In his infamous book, “Rules For Radicals,” Alinsky formulated the idea of “working inside the system” to achieve the desired change in government.
President Obama has learned well from the radical ringmaster, Alinsky, and even eclipsed P. T. Barnum in the size and scope of his socialist circus. All that is left for the great pitchman Obama to do is to hold his ruse together long enough to implement his hoax on America – from the inside.
With a Democrat majority in both Congress and Senate coupled with the full support of almost every media outlet, Obama can say and do as he pleases without fear of enough truth getting out to dissuade the masses about his plans. And there aren’t enough checks and balances in either government or media to stop him from raising the center pole of the three-ring circus tent to complete the building of the greatest socialist show on earth.
While tossing a couple of bucks for a side show is an easy pill to swallow, blowing trillions of dollars along with a laundry list of American freedoms is off the scale of comprehension for even the most credulous circus midway patrons.
Who will expose this socialist monster of the midway and save America before it’s too late?
