Obama is not a fool. He is not incompetent. He is not a madman. 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. But the bonus is brilliant: As he taxes to death business owners, he also cripples his political opposition.
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 Obama’s presidency. As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward and Piven, two professors at Obama’s Columbia University. They created a devious 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 Machiavellian game plan to overwhelm the system and turn the U.S. into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival.
Universal health care. The health-care bill had very little to do with health care and everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital employees, as well as adding government employees (16,000 new IRS agents). And who is exempt from this bill? Only one group – unions.
Obama doesn’t care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he cares about is that it overwhelms the system and cements the dependence and loyalty of those 30 million voters to big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression? Why the rush? Why risk destroying the economy on a reckless, unproven scheme? There is only one answer – OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM.
What would it look like if the federal behemoth were severely cut down to size? Read Wayne Allen Root’s prescription for the nation in “The Conscience of a Libertarian: Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gambling & Tax Cuts”
Cap-and-trade. Like health care, this cap-and-trade bill has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with overwhelming the system, redistribution of income, handing control of the economy to government bureaucrats and a payoff to Obama’s biggest contributors (specifically unions). Those powerful and wealthy contributors can then be counted on to support everything and anything Obama wants. They will kick back hundreds of millions in contributions to the Democratic Party. Who but a socialist revolutionary would risk destroying the economy on a reckless, unproven scheme in the middle of a depression? There is only one answer – OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM.
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? Obama’s plan all along has been to use Puerto Rico to add new Democratic senators, House members and loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would support this reckless scheme in the middle of a depression? Why now? There is only one answer – OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM.
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 Democratic voters who can be counted on to support big-government programs they’ll use – like welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor and eventually Social Security. Who but a socialist revolutionary would support this radical scheme in the middle of a depression? Why now? There is only one answer – OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM.
Card check. This disastrous bill threatens to unionize all of America, even small business. More union employees means more union dues and hundreds of millions of new campaign contributions to Democrats. Why now? There is only one answer– OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM.
Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democratic contributors, organizations (ACORN) and unions – including billions of dollars to save the jobs of government employees across the country and billions more to hire new government employees. It went to save GM and Chrysler so their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1,000,000 in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby preserving their union dues to teachers unions). All those public employees can now be counted on to vote Democrat. The private sector goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democratic Party, government and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means. OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM.
Raise taxes only on small-business owners, high-income earners and job creators. Why? Because such a plan destroys the groups that contribute the most money to fiscally conservative politicians and causes. Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to “starve the beast” (by cutting off funds for government). Obama wants to starve his political opposition by taxing them to death. OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM.
With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government, a 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.
Only one thing stands in their way – you and me, the American taxpayers. If we want to save the greatest country and economic system in world history, we had better get busy. We had better fight back hard. Our children and grandchildren’s futures are at stake.
