"Overwhelm the System" a la Cloward & Piven...

A new friend of mine, "PurpleVoter" commented below on the socialist 'tax & spend' agenda:

"I have a problem with progressives using statistics to support their tax and spend agenda when the supposedly negative aspects of the stats were created/driven by the very policies they are being used to support. Think of it this way: you say the poor are becoming poorer because the rich haven't been taxed enough over the past twenty years. But what has happened to entitlement spending over the same period? Why is taxation the culprit and not entitlements?"

Excellent question. I believe we know the answer.

Obama's agenda: Overwhelm the system

*emphases mine


Rahm Emanuel cynically said, "You never want a crisis to go to waste." It is now becoming clear that the crisis he was referring to is Barack Obama's presidency.

Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.

Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of '83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven (link mine), two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.

-- Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?

-- Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around."

-- Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression?Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama's plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.

-- Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.

-- Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.

-- Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.

With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.

Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme -- all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama.

Yes. I think we know the answer...

Man that's scary. The only other alternative is that Obama is a complete idiot and I don't think many people believe that. Arrogant as all get out but stupid? No.

Susannah said...

BetteJo~ Yep. I think so, too. And no, far from stupid...

tha malcontent said...

Well, most intelligent Americans aren't buying that crap anymore.

Leticia said...

Obama is definitely not stupid, he is manipulative and conniving. His whole agenda was to cripple this nation and he is doing a bang-up job.

Always On Watch said...

Yep.

November is going to be "our last chance" to curb BHO's agenda.

Brooke said...

Absolutely. Another scary thing is how the gov't buys/claims land... After they crash the system the only thing to back dollars with will be...

Susannah said...

Mal! Haven't seen you in a while. So glad to have you back! Re: your assessment -- let's hope not!

Leticia & AOW! What an honor & a blessing to have you come by! I couldn't agree more, & yes - we must absolutely, positively 'curb,' & hobble BHO's ability to 'get anything done.'

Brooke! Hadn't thought about it that way..."imminent domain" has a whole new meaning...Thanks for swinging back by. Glad to have you here!

Z said...

SO, NOW WHAT? We have to do a lot more than VOTE :-)
That article was sent to me a few weeks ago and I thought it was so important and am glad you blogged it...we need to send this to all our non-blogger buddies via email, too.

Z said...

malcontent, what happened to your blog?

Jim said...

"The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents"

Really. Is there any evidence whatsoever of this? What's the connection between ACA and unions? Where is the evidence that there will be 20,000 new IRS agents?

I can posit that Newt Gringrich will crap golden eggs that doesn't make it so, even if it is more likely to happen.

"Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt."

There is no evidence whatsoever for this outrageous assertion. The CBO says ACA will lower the national debt by over $1.3 trillion over the next 20 years. Where is the evidence to back up the quoted statement?

"Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power."

And the powerful and wealthy oil companies and Koch brothers and contributors (like Rupert Murdoch, who owns Fox News, the on-air voice of the Tea Party and what left of the Republican party) can then be counted on to be against everything to help America and Americans.

"Make Puerto Rico a state." Where the heck did that come from?

And on and on. You neglect to say anything about the Republican plan to "starve the beast." They want to create chaos and bring down the county by refusing to pay for the things that keep America strong and help Americans prosper.

Adult Toys said...

Obama administration is recently many laws regarding the health of the persons. Hence they can be used to get the better life of many persons.

Susannah said...

Jim! You're back!
Go ask Mr. Root for his 'evidence.' I'm almost certain there's a comment section @ the site where this post was originally published.

"...can be counted on to be against everything to help America and Americans."

Ah, yes. That's EXACTLY the point!! And who is it, sir, that has to PAY for those things which 'help Americans.'

Hmmm, Jim? Adult Toys?

That's right. The TAX PAYER, who does not like being ROBBED in order to supplement the income/lifestyle of the rest of the country just b/c people feel entitled to it. This is EXACTLY what this post is about -- we tax payers are going to be overwhelmed by the demands of entitlement programs, & the 'system' will implode.

I object to your basic premise, which is that it's the GOVERNMENT's responsibility to 'take care of Americans' & provide things which "help Americans prosper."

Adult Toys~ If people want a better life, they should plan, save, invest & WORK FOR IT, not demand that the government, or Mr. Obama's new "laws" provide it. THAT's the whole POINT of this post.

Your marxist/socialist ideology is most unwelcome here.

Jim said...

Same old crap. Paying taxes is being robbed. Everyone but you is a freeloader.

How selfish can you be?

Susannah said...

"How selfish can you be?"

Oh, now I see...

Working hard, denying myself & my kids all sorts of 'nice-ities' in order to stay w/in our means (meanwhile, 'welfare kids' are sportin' Air Jordan's & swiping my kid's expensive school supplies - true story - etc.) saving, investing what little 'extra' there is,...and wanting to KEEP what I/my husband make is considered selfish? All the while, giving to my church, donating time/$$/goods to my community to help the needy...

Sure, so next you'll say what Joe Blow Biden said, "Come on! Get with the program! [paying taxes] is patriotic."

Cloward & Piven would be so proud of you, Jim, their little pet.

Susannah said...

I repeat:
"Your marxist/socialist ideology is most unwelcome here."
