By now, Paul Ryan has spoken to the nation and no doubt has told us about the danger coming from our national debt—We are spending too much, and Welfare includes more than food stamps. Much more. Hundreds of programs exist to ‘help’ the needy. You won’t hear from the Democrats that welfare is not a good thing, nope. For Democrats, the more people on welfare the better. They even have ads out to ‘hook’ you into free whatever you like, like this grocery receipt someone found on the ground in Ohio.
Hey…I’d LOVE to pick up some lobster, how about you? After all, you PAID for it!
I just downloaded ‘Google Chrome” and asked this questions: “How many people are on Welfare?”
I got this answer, “Not a good search.”
What? Google is now telling me what I can or cannot “intellectually’ handle. It gave me liberal sites to answer my question. Those sites told me NOT to listen to what those conservatives tell me…only 4 million people are on welfare..all that other stuff—food stamps etc–that’s not welfare.
But–we know better don’t we? The facts are: More than half the people in the United States pay NO income tax, and the other half is supporting them. This little tidbit is from FORBES:
Over the 10 year period from 2009 to 2018, federal and state welfare spending will total $10.3 trillion. This does not include Obamacare’s massive expansion of Medicaid, or the massive new entitlement providing subsidies for families making close to $100,000 per year, and beyond. Together, this abusive entitlement spending will add trillions more. 50% of the entire budget. Not exactly stingy.
But, here’s what you won’t hear from Paul Ryan: This massive welfare state was well-planned, and Obama’s plan is to keep as many people on Welfare as he can. The old Democratic Party is dead, and in its place, (Glenn Beck has been on this like a dead bug on a windshield) is a Marxist ‘takeover’ planned—by two Columbia University Professors. Here’s their plan from article published in “Nation” in 1966, by Cloward-Piven: It’s called the “crisis” strategy.
Here’s an excellent explanation from David Horowitz-The Shadow Party
The strategy would be to overload the welfare system with a flood of new applicants and cause it to go bankrupt. They proposed a ‘massive drive to recruit the poor onto the welfare rolls”. Cloward and Piven calculated that persuading even a fraction of the potential welfare recipients to demand their entitlements would bankrupt the entire system. The demands would break the budget and jam the bureaucratic gears into gridlock. The Result would be “a profound financial and political crisis” that would unleash “powerful forces for major economic reform at the national level.”
Their article called for “cadres of aggressive organizers” to use “demonstrations to create a climate of militancy.” Intimidated by black violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for help. Carefully orchestrated media campaigns carried out by friendly journalists would promote the idea of “a federal program of income redistribution in the form of a guaranteed living income for all, working and non working people alike.” Local officials would grab hold of this idea like drowning men reaching for a lifeline. They would apply pressure on Washington to implement the idea. With major cities erupting in chaos like Watts, Washington would have to act.
It’s his plan: Destroy the United States to rebuild it into his Marxist Utopia.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to live in Obama’s Welfare nightmare….I want to be able to buy my own lobster.
