  During some of the confusion and racial riots in our cities in 1965, Columbia University sociologists Richard Cloward and Frances Piven created a paper entitled the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" designed 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. There can be little doubt that Barack Obama knows of this paper.

   Their article calls for "cadres of aggressive organizers" to use "demonstrations to create a climate of militancy." To place the society into a crisis mode is also part of the strategy. "We must act now" is the hallmark and cry for action that launches this program.

   Intimidation by threats of violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for help. Carefully orchestrated media campaigns, carried out by friendly, left wing journalists would float 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 clutch at this idea like drowning men to a lifeline. They would apply pressure on Washington to implement it. With every major city erupting into chaos, Washington would have to act. An economic crisis can be as effective as a social crisis. Place the country into a depression and the strategy would work equally as well.

   Most Americans have never heard of Cloward and Piven. But New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani attempted to expose them in the late 1990s. Citing the 1966 manifesto of these two men, Giuliani said that militant scholars knew what they were doing. "This wasn't an accident" he charged in a 1997 speech. "It wasn't an atmospheric thing. This is the result of policies and programs designed to have the maximum number of people get on welfare."

   ACORN was created to use the Cloward-Piven strategy to the fullest. Put on the voting records "dead wood" of nonexistent people in order to pad the voting list, mainly and mostly of Democratic voters who will vote for more welfare. Frivolous lawsuits and unfounded charges of "racism" and "disenfranchisement" and "direct action," drive the voter fraud machinery. The Cloward-Piven strategy set the stage for the Florida recount crisis of 2000, and it introduced a level of fear, tension and foreboding to U.S. elections heretofore encountered mainly in Third World countries. For many years, Obama was "active" in this strategy.

   It will be impossible to turn around the direction of this nation, morally, socially, and politically. We will never again see conservative leaders in local government or in Congress. The minorities will all be voting Democratic, looking for welfare handouts, free housing and free medical care. The ignorance of such groups, along with the younger crowd of those under thirty years of age, will be the electorate of the future. They have no concept of the founding of this nation, of the principles of strong government, and of the blessings of the founding fathers. This is not to argue that all was perfect in the beginning of this nation—it was not! However, the Reformation heritage played a huge part in the establishment of America. The minorities cannot lay claim to "the founding fathers." They have no idea of what they stood for spiritually and socially! There is no turning back. And much of what is coming upon us is clearly a judgment from God!
