Barry Sotero Hassan Obama's agenda: Overwhelm the system

WAYNE ALLYN ROOT

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.Â

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, 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.

I don't think he has a snowball's chance in hell
of being re-elected so when we get this a-hole
out of office he has no place to go in politics.
Sure he will make millions making speeches
after office but America as a whole will be done
with this sack of shit.

Hang on America, we can fix his mess when he's
gone

Don't count Obama out

Don't let wishful thinking cloud your thinking.
There's not a Republican candidate yet who can beat him.
Let's hope that someone will emerge who can unite the party; bring the various factions together in an effort to unseat Obama and the liberals.
There are 2 1/2 years left until November 2012, so there's time. All of us who are concerned must become involved.

The problem of course is, once people expect handouts, \
they won't go back, that's why Social Security was a horrible
idea, welfare expanision in the 60s was a horrible idea, and
on and on. Think about it though...Social Security is nice for
retired folks...but look at the history of SS. It was suppose to
tie over women who lost their husbands before they died.
Most women didn't work outside the home back then, so the
government thought it could help them out. However, the
life expectancy back then was about 60 years old -- let's
say, I don't know the real number, but it was definitely less
than it is today. The program is being used in a way that
it was not originally intended. That is why it's in trouble.
We need to get rid of the program...it's not up to the government
to take care of people until they die. I would propose we phase
out social security completely. With people say, under 40 getting
pulled, 40-50, you get 75 percent of expected payouts, over 50
no change or something similar...not sure of specifics, but something
needs to be done. Same with welfare...I would change it, more kids
less money, period. It's not up to me to pay for your kids PERIOD.
Not a legal citizen: NO NEED TO APPLY. We need to punish those
who misuse it, PERIOD.

As to your question, Where does Obama go from here:
Answer: Straight to HELL, I hope!

Agreed

Anything can happen....this is not about one election either
it's much bigger than this. Liberal/Socialists/communists
which they are have been gouging us from the inside for 50
years...we need a return to sanity not just for an election, but
for several elections.

The original retirement age of 65 was set by Bismark of Germany to passify workers who were threatening his regime. It was set at 65 precisely because that was the life expectancy. In this country the original social security tax was 1/2 of 1%. It's not about 15% total. The thing is, historically if you took that 15% and invested it prudently using what Trusts call "The Prudent Man Rule" and did not risk it on "growth stocks" and the like, over a 40-50 year career you would accumulate millions, literally. My own retirement system, though a 'public' system, pays double what social security does, and it is actuarily self-perpetuating on pretty much the same percentages as social security.

that should be taught in our schools...Social Security
was well intentioned, but definitely not the best way
to teach people how to take care of themselves...I
don't know of anybody who doesn't at one point say
"If I only knew then what i know now"...yet we don't
want to teach our kids these lessons...we want them
to rely on the government...unbelievable.

and did a roll your own system, you'd have the resources to take care of yourself if you became disabled. You'd have to have the personal discipline to save the equivalent amount of money, but if ss were to go away, employers, insurance companies, etc. would set up systems that made it easier for you. In fact, they are there today; it's just that most people don't use them. After all, they're already paying into ss. And, frankly, some people don't use the Prudent Man Rule and wind up getting screwed. The issue really is one of personal choice.

Schuyler I agree 100%

BUT there are a lot more families living from
paycheck to paycheck that couldn't practice
this plan than we might think.
If the government didn't take the money and
the people not have access to it until retirement
there would be a lot more people homeless than
there are.
True it's their own fault for not being able to control
their spending and saving but some things are just the
way they are.
Look at the government it's self. How much wasteful
spending is there.
Right now is a very bad time for the government to be
on a runaway spending spree but those who think
they know best are the ones doing the spending.
I'm not going t take out a loan to loan you money.
That just dosen't make any sense a all
But our government is doing it. Borrow money from China
to pay stemulas money. I'm sorry but I think they are
a bunch of goons with their heads up their butts.

last year for personal health reasons.
When she cashed in her 401K the money
she had paid in wasn't there. She lost close to 10%.
She was invested in the safe zone but still lost.
What if that's all she had?
Some times things look better on paper than
when it is in the bank.
Also at 62 she can't buy Medicare and she
only gets $700.00 per month SS.
Private ins on her is $600.00.
So much for government health-care

I don't have all the answers...but I wouldn't touch the benefits
of those who are past a certain age. I mean, you paid into
a system that promised you something...that's a contract and
should be honored (not like athletes do)...but the system as
we know it is broken and anybody in their right mind would either
revamp or scrap it. We can't pay it unless we raise the taxes
for the rest of the people. I understand the implications of doing
something like this...I am almost 50, so I know I would most likely
be taking some of the brunt of doing something big on SS...but
I also understand that the future of the country is bigger than me.
I also don't begrudge folks that honestly need help, can't work,
physically or mentally incapacitated...we SHOULD be helping those.
But nobody in the country can stand up and state that only those who
truly need the help are getting the help. I will call that person a
FUCKING LIAR to their face, no matter if it is Obama, Jesus Christ
or anybody on this website.

"I'm from the government and I'm here to help." I understand that some people are not as good about taking care of themselves, but I think the GOVERNMENT trying to do it is flat out wrong. The plain fact of the matter is that if you compare the government run social security system with an actuarilly sound private pension plan taking exactly the same amount of money out of your paycheck over the years, the private plan pays double. So had your wife had THAT system she would be getting $1400 a month, not $700. Not only does the government screw you on the return you get with ss, it's also not sound. It cannot endure. It's a Ponzi scheme that is not actuarially sound, particularly with us baby boomers hitting the system.

If you truly feel the government can't do anything right, then as much as possible you do it yourself. I'm in exactly the same position as your wife. But I pay $230 per month for medical insurance. I buy a high deductible plan, sometimes called 'catastrophe insurance.' My reasoning is as follows. If I paid for a $600 per month policy, I'd be out $7200 per year to be fully covered. Instead I pay $2760. I save $4440 per year, which is a bit more than my $3500 deductible policy. If I really do get sick, I still will pay out less than the $600 policy. If I don't, I save that money. So far I've saved $25K. Of course, your mileage may vary, but my point is that you can make self-serving decisions and also 'share the risk' your own self rather than depend on the government to bail you out every time you hit a glitch in the road.

I'm not sure that had we a private system in place, more people would be homeless. In fact, such a system would encourage self-reliance instead of dependency. When the government gets involved to "help" us all they do is create dependencies. That's how government gets bigger, how it saps our strength, and takes away our individual rights. As LLE lamented, 'How did we get into this mess?" Well, that's how.
