O'er the Land of the Free Stuff

When the Free Ride is Over
It may be a well worn question by now, but it deserves another look: If Barack Obama truly believed in American greatness, why would he proclaim a need in 2008 to "fundamentally transform" her? No person who is in love and at the alter professes a deep love for their spouse-to-be and in the next breath promises to fundamentally alter them. Yet no one questioned Obama when he figuratively did just that.

Just as a once-tenacious media now ignores the obvious signs that Obama is destroying the country. With his mentor Frank Marshall Davis's philosophy buried deep within his breast, Obama is pursuing the dreams not only of his "father", but those of Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. What were those dreams?

In short, the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" is the method of remaking America by collapsing the economic system and making it into one more like a Socialist state. This would be accomplished by weighting down the system through financially overloading it. In other words, the object is to get as many people as possible on public assistance until the demand cannot possibly be met. If anyone truly cannot see how this plan is currently being implemented, they have not eyes.

Apparently it hasn't happened fast enough for Obama, though. After ripping through over six trillion dollars faster than every president combined before him, America - miraculously -- is still standing. Yet, Obama is promising that he will continue to fund "green" energy companies going forward despite the fact that more than fifteen have failed after receiving billions of taxpayer dollars.

What's more, there are a record number of people on food stamps and other public assistance. For example, in the month of June of this year, more people filed for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) than found jobs.

That's not enough for Obama, though. There are now commercials being run on radio and television trying to increase the rolls of food stamp recipients. Forgive me folks, but the advertising costs a fortune as an added "bonus". Do we really need to be advertising food stamps? If people are really hungry, they will find out on their own how to get food.

Another piece of the puzzle just revealed is Obama's plans to allow private student loans to be discharged by borrowers through bankruptcy, a practice that was banned in the 2005 overhaul of bankruptcy law. Private student loans amount to $150 billion in debt. If borrowers begin discharging their loans, banks could fail. Will the government have to bail them out again? Perhaps Obama is counting on it.

Incredibly, President Obama made the claim in June that, "Since I've been president, federal spending has risen at the lowest pace in nearly 60 years." That was based on the years immediately preceding his inauguration. As we all know, it is Congress that approves all spending with the formality of the  signature of the president, and as such, the spending orgy began in 2007 with George W. Bush as president. However, it was after the Democrats took control of Congress. Interestingly, spending did go down slightly in 2011 and 2012, after Republicans regained the House of Representatives.

In 2009, Obama seized on the mantra of "never let a crisis go to waste" and began his "fundamental transformation" of America. Almost half of the population pays no effective federal income tax, yet nearly half is also on some form of public assistance. And he's far from done. Given another four years, even with a completed Republican Congress, and there is no telling how much damage Obama can do.

But it must be noted that at some point, someone will have to halt the flow of free stuff in America, and when that happens, the riots will begin. Are we already past the tipping point? That is hard to say. Perhaps if people begin finding gainful employment soon the pain will be lessened enough to prevent mass rage when the Government is once again reined in.

If not, then Obama, Cloward and Piven will have won, and we'll be living in a Post-American World after all.
