“Barrack Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant.” Many of you, who are choking on the hordes of black flies you inhaled when your jaws dropped to the floor after reading my opening quote, are probably wondering if you are reading the right column. Yes, this is The Maine Conservative Voice, but you might be surprised to read that I am in complete agreement with that quote.
The author is Wayne Allyn Root. This man was a college classmate of Barrack Obama at Columbia University. I quoted from a piece he wrote and published in the Las Vegas Review Journal. The June 6, 2010 column reveals that two Columbia professors named Cloward and Piven developed the President’s governing approach. The plan is to socialize the United States by “overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands”. Mr. Root contends that Barrack Obama is “purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crises and social chaos”. The intent, he says, is to destroy capitalism, which will cause the country to implode. Now, for a small, cave dwelling, country bumpkin columnist, it is still hard for me to comprehend that anyone could want to see our beloved country destroyed, yet, amazingly, there are those who do.
Wayne Root goes on to show how each one of the President’s policies on their own seem disconnected from reason and almost laughable, but when they are put together they reveal the Cloward and Piven plan. As Mr. Root puts it, “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.”
Last week, we talked about the audits. Legalities or illegalities aside, Independent Contractors represent one of the few remaining employers, besides government agencies, in North Central Maine. So in this present economy, it flies in the face of common sense to target and try to eliminate these employers, doesn’t it?…or…does it? In the light of Cloward and Piven, a new reality begins to dawn.
The Democrat socialist view of the world needs to have people who are subservient to its policies. Freedom loving people will not choose government domination willingly. This is why the President, our Governor and the Democrat Party have chosen and are choosing policies that deprive the people of their independence. They are systematically and deliberately herding the people into a place of complete dependence upon government, thereby, insuring complete domination by the Democrat Party.
I once read from The Daily Chesterton, “(No society can survive the socialist) fallacy that there is an absolutely unlimited number of inspired officials and an absolutely unlimited amount of money to pay them.” This one sentence sums up the socialist mindset. It is not concerned with the failure of an economy because socialism craves a crises and a populace completely dependent upon government to save it.
Last week, we saw how this President closed the legal loophole that protected Independent Contractors and has, now, targeted them for litigation. Sources within the Federal Government have told us that this initial wave of audits will be at the State level. In 2011, the Fed will come with another wave of audits targeting the contractors the State has “exposed”. This will effectively crush Independent Contractors for good, with little regard for its effect on the economy. For example, a contractor who owes the State $10,000 in fines will end up facing Federal punitive damages somewhere in the neighborhood of $80,000.
Now, I have stated before that this was just a money grab for a government that can’t pay its own bills. Perhaps, it’s more than that. Most contractors cannot sustain these fines or pay them. Is it possible that the Government knows that it will never realize financial satisfaction from these penalties? Is it possible that the Government’s goal is simply to eradicate Independent Contractors? If you look at these situations through the prism of Cloward and Piven, the answer is grim.
I believe this election will be the historic test our Founding Fathers foresaw. Will the people rise up to beat back an oppressive government? I believe we can in 2010.

If you ask me he should be impeached.
