Cloward-Piven Blueprint Continues to Unfold

The Washington Times gives three more reasons to believe that the Cloward-Piven strategy of ushering in communism by deliberately collapsing the economy under the burden of public spending is alive and well:

First came word that new jobless claims … jumped above half a million, a number so large that one economist said “it looks like the economy ran into a wall.” Second came a Congressional Budget Office estimate that this year’s federal deficit will be well above $1.3 trillion for a second straight year and remain above $1 trillion next year as well — causing as much debt in three years as government built up in the previous 219.

Third came the announcement by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) that [last Wednesday] was the 2010 “Cost of Government Day,” which is “the day on which the average American has earned enough gross income to pay off his or her share of the spending and regulatory burdens imposed by government at the federal, state and local levels.” Just two years ago, Cost of Government Day fell an astonishing 34 days earlier. This year, the average American worked 231 days just to support government, which consumes 63.41 percent of national income.

That is to say, if we could get the government monkey off our backs, our standard of living would be close to three times as high.

It gets worse…
