Thanks for posting this, it’s the first time I’ve seen it. Just ignore the self appointed posting police. Not everyone can see every article the first time around.

Pointing out a demonstrable fact makes one a “posting police”?

Good point,

McCain is helping advance and speed up the agenda. Did not give it his all to win, and just recently filed to give $9 million he didn't use in 2008 race to his charity on global issues instead of helping win 2012 election. The NDAA passed easily in both houses. The debt dance was all show. No accountability...Solyndra, Corzine, Holder, F & F...I could go on and on..

Holy sh*t!

That gave me goosebumps.

That guy for president, screw useless the GOP!

And what he said is just the very tip of the iceberg.

The US federal government IS the Axis of Evil.

The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Manufactured Crisis
[Obama's strategy for destroying the economy]
| August 31, 2008 | Jim Simpson

Liberals self-righteously wrap themselves in the mantle of public spirit. They ardently promote policies promising to deliver the poor and oppressed from their latest misery — policies which can only find solution in the halls of government. But no matter what issue one examines, over the last fifty plus years, the liberal prescription has almost always been a failure.

Why is this so? Why does virtually every liberal scheme result in ever-increasing public spending while conditions seem to get continually worse? There are a number of reasons:

  1. The programs usually create adverse incentives. This is especially true in so-called “anti-poverty” programs. The beneficiaries find government subsidies a replacement for, rather than a supplement to, gainful employment and eventually become incapable of supporting themselves. This in turn creates a dependent culture with its attendant toxic behaviors which demand still more government “remedies.”
  2. The programs create their own industry, complete with scads of “think tanks” and “experts” who survive on government research grants. These are the aptly named “Beltway Bandits.”
  3. They create their own bureaucracies, whose managers conspire with interested members of Congress to continually increase program funding, regardless of merit.
  4. Members of Congress secure votes and campaign donations by extorting them from beneficiaries of such programs, either through veiled threats — “vote for me or those mean Republicans will wipe out your benefits” — or promises of still more bennies.

In short, all develop a vested interest in the program’s survival. But if the result is always more and more government, of government, by government, and for government, with no solution in sight, then why do liberals always see government as the solution rather than the problem?

Similarly, liberals use government to promote legislation that imposes mandates on the private sector to provide further benefits for selected groups. But the results are even more disastrous. For example, weighing the laws or stacking the courts to favor unions may provide short term security or higher pay for unionized labor, but has ultimately resulted in the collapse of entire domestic industries.

Another example is health care. The Dems are always trying to impose backdoor socialized medicine with incremental legislation. Why do you suppose American healthcare is in such crisis? Answer: the government has already become too deeply involved. For example, many hospitals are closing their doors because they are overwhelmed with the burden of caring for indigent patients, illegal immigrants and vagrants who must, by law, be admitted like everyone else, despite the fact that they cannot pay for services. Read about it here — Destroying Our Health Care. The net result is reduced availability of care for everyone, exactly the opposite of what liberals claim to want.

To further complicate things, liberal jurists and lawyers have created new theories of liability that utilize the legal system as a means to further redistribute income. This too, has resulted in higher costs and prices in affected industries, higher insurance costs, or in some cases, complete elimination of products or services.

Liberals’ endless pursuit of “rights” for different groups also does little but create increasing divisions in our society. Liberal policy pits old against young, men against women, ethnic and racial groups against one another, even American citizens against illegal aliens, all in the name of “equality.” The only result is anger, tension and equal misery for all.

How does any of this improve our lot?

Finally, when companies relocate overseas to avoid the high cost of unionized labor and heavy domestic regulation, liberals sarcastically excoriate them for “outsourcing” America. Yet, when it comes to certain domestic industries, liberals in Congress suddenly become free marketers and choose to buy from overseas contractors rather than domestic suppliers. This happened most recently with a huge military contract being outrageously awarded to the heavily subsidized European consortium, AIRBUS, over America’s own Boeing. Since liberals claim to be so determined to “save the American worker,” what gives?

You have to take a step further back and ask some fundamental questions. Why is the liberal public policy record one of such unmitigated disaster? I mean, even the worst batter hits one occasionally. No one bats zero. No one that is, except liberals.

Prior to the Republican takeover in Congress in 1994, Democrats had over fifty years of virtually unbroken power in Congress with substantial majorities most of the time. With all the time and money in the world — trillions spent — they couldn’t fix a single thing, not one. Today’s liberal has the same complaints, and the same old tired solutions. Can a group of smart people, studying issue after issue for years on end, with virtually unlimited resources at their command, not come up with a single policy that works? Why are they chronically incapable?


When things go bad all the time, despite the best efforts of all involved, I suggest to you something else is at work — something deeper, more malevolent.

I submit to you that it is not a mistake, the failure is deliberate!

There is a method to the madness, and the method even has a name: the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It was first elucidated in the 1960s by a pair of radical leftist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven:

The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis…. …the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

[Part II of this article will explore those organizations created to implement the Cloward-Piven strategy and their ties to the presidential candidacy of Barack Obama.]

Funny how most of these self-appointed 'cops' rarely contribute anything of substance themselves.

Interesting, one of the morning talking points of DNC head, was to attack the Tea Party. She claimed Boehner has let "right wing extremists" like the Tea Party control the house. One of the reasons for the House failure (in Debbie speak)

They see the Tea Party as a real threat

Here’s another one along the same lines - I saw it a year or two ago. Obama is sort of the culmination of their plans. An America hating Marxist, elected and protected by his skin color.

Your last name is not Robinson and you are not a moderator. That makes you self appointed.

You harass and stalk posters about their posts and sources. That makes you the posting police.

I sent this video to my email list and asked them to forward it to their email list after reminding them to remove email addresses. These kinds of videos must be sent viral over the Internet because the MSM won’t tell the truth. In my opinion, it is up to us to spread the truth and expose the enemies within; all of them regardless of political party.

Credit to “If I Wanted America to Fail”

If I wanted America to fail…to follow, not lead - to suffer, not prosper - to despair, not dream…I’d start with energy.

I’d come off America’s supply of cheap, abundant energy.

I couldn’t take it by force - so I’d make Americans feel guilty about using the energy that heats their homes, fuels their cars, runs their businesses and powers their economy.

I’d make cheap energy expensive - so that expensive energy would seem cheap.

I would empower unelected bureaucrats to all but outlaw America’s most abundant sources of energy.

And after banning its use in America, I’d make it illegal for American companies to ship it overseas.

If I wanted America to fail:

I’d use their schools to teach one generation of Americans that their factories and their cars will cause a new ice age…

…and I’d muster a straight face so I could teach the next generation that they’re causing global warming.

When it’s cold out, I’d call it climate change, instead.

I’d imply that America’s cities and factories could run on wind power and wishes.

I’d teach children how to ignore the hypocrisy of condemning logging, mining, and farming…while having roofs over their heads, heat in their homes, and food on their tables.

I would never teach children that the free market is the only force - in human history - to uplift the poor, establish the middle class, and create lasting prosperity.

Instead, I’d demonize prosperity itself, so they will not miss…what they will never have.

If I wanted America to fail:

I would create countless new regulations and seldom cancel old ones.

It would be so complicated that only bureaucrats, lawyers, and lobbyists could understand them.

That way, small businesses with big ideas…wouldn’t stand a chance - and I would never have to worry about another Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, or…Steve Jobs.

I would ridicule, as flat-Earthers, those who urge them to lower energy costs by increasing supply.

And when the evangelists of common sense try to remind people about the laws of supply and demand, I’d enlist a sympathetic media to drown them out.

If I wanted America to fail:

I’d empower unaccountable bureaucracies - seated in a distant capital - to bully Americans out of their dreams and their property rights.

I’d send federal agents to raid guitar factories for using the wrong kind of wood.

I’d force homeowners to tear down their own homes - built on their own land.

I’d make it almost impossible for farmers to farm, miners to mine, loggers to log, and builders to build.

Because I don’t believe in free markets, I’d invent false ones.

I’d devise fictitious products - like carbon credits - and trade them in imaginary markets.

I’d convince people that this would “create jobs” and be “good for the economy.”

If I wanted America to fail:

For every concern, I’d invent a crisis, and for every crisis, I’d invent the cause…

…like shutting down entire industries and killing tens of thousands of jobs in the name of saving spotted owls.

And when everyone learned the stunning irony - that the owls were the victims of their larger cousins, and not people - it would already be decades too late.

If I wanted America to fail:

I’d make it easier to stop commerce than to start it, easier to kill jobs than create them, more fashionable to resent success than to seek it.

When industries seek to create jobs, I’d file lawsuits to stop them, and then I’d make taxpayers pay…for my lawyers.

If I wanted America to fail:

I would transform the environmental agenda from a document of conservation - to an economic suicide pact.

I would concede entire industries to our economic rivals by imposing regulations that cost trillions.

I would celebrate those who preach environmental austerity in public - while indulging a lavish lifestyle in private.

I’d convince Americans that Europe…has it right…and that America has it wrong.

If I wanted America to fail:

I would prey on the goodness - and the decency - of ordinary Americans.

I would only need to convince them - that all of this - is for the greater good.

If I wanted America to fail, I…I suppose I wouldn’t change a thing.

The # of views on this video has gone DOWN by 500,000 since yesterday.

I noticed that too. Last night when I watched it and emailed it out, the count was pushing 800,000. Right now, it is 295, 089.

A YouTube search for the video lists the number of views as 304,079. [There are 12 separate listings of the video, but only one posted by FreeMarketAmerica.]
