The Socialist, Cloward-Piven Congress on Steroids

©2009 drkate

I’m considering putting a bumper sticker on my car that says “Don’t vote for Republicans or Democrats”…as battery after battery of bad laws are rammed down our throats with only a ‘strategic whimper’ by a ‘non-vulnerable’ republican; or as democrats are openly and brazenly asking for and receiving bribes for their votes.  This is tyranny, a government run amok, and neither of the political parties can be trusted. 😡

Letting the Wolves in the Door

Just about every action of Obama and the Congress can be seen now within the context of several guidebooks, including the Cloward-Piven strategy for the destruction of capitalism, and Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals as a handbook of tactics now quite familiar to us all.

The real goal of “health care” legislation, the real goal of “cap-and-trade,” and the real goal of the “stimulus” is to rip the guts out of our private economy and transfer wide swaths of it over to the government to control. Do not be deluded by the propaganda. These initiatives are vehicles for change. They are not goals in and of themselves except in their ability to deliver power. They and will make matters much worse, for that is their design.

What is happening is that under the guise of ‘security’,the price we are paying is our liberty.  And most of us are asleep.  In the article, “Cloward-Piven: A Bold Step Back”, the origin of this strategy to use poor people as cannon fodder for the destruction of capitalism is described:

Inspired by the August 1965 riots in the black district of Watts in Los Angeles (which erupted after police had used batons to subdue a black man suspected of drunk driving), Cloward and Piven published an article titled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty” in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation . Following its publication, The Nation sold an unprecedented 30,000 reprints. Activists were abuzz over the so-called “crisis strategy” or “Cloward-Piven Strategy,” as it came to be called. Many were eager to put it into effect.

In their 1966 article, Cloward and Piven charged that the ruling classes used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion. Poor people can advance only when “the rest of society is afraid of them,” Cloward told The New York Times on September 27, 1970. Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation; poor people would rise in revolt; only then would “the rest of society” accept their demands. The entire demise of our country has been plotted by the left, and groups like Barack Obama’s beloved ACORN has been moving the country along this well thought out route ever since.

It is said that the radical movement of the 1970’s, inspired by Cloward-Piven, did not achieve its objectives…the extreme left hijacked the movement and wayward fools like the Weatherunderground bombed everything in site.  But in part this is not true, because the radicals of that time are now in Congress and are implementing the strategy from within the government.

Closing the Door to Madness

State legislatures have not done their job to protect the liberties of the inhabitants of their states, and this, combined with our own failure to act, now threatens the very system we think we live in.

It is the eleventh hour.

The States reserved to themselves all the powers they did not enumerate for Congress under the Ninth and Tenth Amendment.  These powers include the ability to refuse to take federal money; the ability to coin gold and silver currency; to refuse to implement federal laws that are inconsistent with the Constitution; to recall their representatives; and the right to organize a militia for defense of a free state.

Do you think your state legislators know this?  Mine don’t.

Revolution must begin at home.

    dr kate,

    Bravo! With concision and éclat, backed by meticulous research, you have traced the past, present, and intended future of the nearly inconceivably monstrous and demonic Evil being worked in this country. Neither the 90% of blacks supporting obama, who are one issue people – black victimhood at the hands of whites, all of whom they have now redefined as racists – nor their cool, hip politically correct white enablers have any clue that they have all been enslaved by their messiah.
