The Missing Word
January 13, 2010
economy and even our culture are being harmed by the absence of just one
word. This missing word has been interred during the past few years by
far-left leaders who aim to transform America, as promised by candidate
Barack Obama and with the help of many others who prefer a European type
of a Marxist society to a capitalist Republic .
is this missing word, and why has it interfered with their attempts at
transformation? The word was part of what was promised by our
forefathers, those who created this Republic under God as a capitalist
nation. A country where one could pursue happiness and earn as much as
one’s talent and willingness to work with diligence, morality and ethics
the word earn has been lost as the Chicago community organizers
propagandized for a Marxist life-style where instead of producers
benefiting from the rewards of their hard work, all wealth had to be
spread equally, regardless of who had earned it. "redistribution” became
the replacement word for "earn.”
did Marxism spread here in this land of opportunity?
Another Chicago organizer,
studied by both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and admired by many
others including Bill Ayres and NBC’s Chris Matthews, was a Communist
named Saul Alinsky. In Rules for Radicals, he addressed the 1960s
generation of radicals, outlining his views on organizing for mass
power. In the opening paragraph of his book, Alinsky wrote, "What
follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to
what they believe it should be. The Prince was written
by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is
written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."
And "take it away” is what
our Marxists leaders in our government want to do!
Glenn Beck has delved into
the saga of Cloward and Piven. Unlike Saul Alinsky who advised people on
how to revolt, this married couple has already set into motion laws and
rules of revolt. According to an article in
the magazine The Nation, the Cloward–Piven strategy is a
political strategy outlined by Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven,
then both sociologists and political activists at the Columbia
University School of Social Work.
The two argued that many
Americans who were eligible for welfare were not receiving benefits, and
that a welfare enrollment drive would create a political crisis that
would force U.S. politicians, particularly the Democratic Party, to
enact legislation "establishing a guaranteed national income." Cloward
also influenced the concept of "anomie” (meaning social instability
caused by erosion of standards and values; alienation and
purposelessness experienced by a person or a class as a result of a lack
of standards, values, or ideals). He was also a primary motivator for
the passage of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 known as
"Motor Voter." He taught at Columbia University for 47 years.
As Marxism spread, almost
all colleges and universities found similar far-left theories being
taught. Especially pushed was the Cloward-Piven mantra that to win,
welfare must overwhelm all government channels. From this, spread the
ACORN tree and its branches. ACORN was founded by Wayne and Dale Rathke.
Brother Dale was accused of embezzling a million dollars from ACORN and
left, leaving Wayne Rathke in charge. Wayne also was founder and chief
organizer of Local 100, Service Employees International Union (SEIU),
which is headquartered in New Orleans, the locale of ACORN and other
leftist groups. Local 100 organizes public sector public workers,
including school employees, Head Start, and health care workers, as well
as lower wage private sector workers in the hospitality, janitorial, and
other service industries.
The national SEIU is run
by Andy Stern, president of the 2-million-member
organization, the fastest-growing union in America. It is reported that
Stern is intent upon influencing federal legislation that helps
revitalize the labor movement through universal health care, expanding
union ranks via the Employee Free Choice Act (commonly known as "card
check”), stronger regulations on business, profit sharing for employees,
and higher taxes—all efforts consistent with a new global economic model
that moves American businesses away from traditional, free-market
capitalism. Stern has been logged in as one of the top visitors to the
Obama White House.
Is there any wonder why
our college kids have been indoctrinated, or why the transformation of
America has been slowly evolving? America’s decline can be traced back
to the followers of the Italian Socialist, Antonio Gramsci who died in
1938. However his theory of hegemony lives on in today’s leaders and
government. We even have a President today who is closing down Gitmo as
terrorism increases. He tells us tit invites propaganda and recruiting
by al Qaeda . Of course our enemies are going to react to anything that
offends them. They are playing chess with our President and they cheer
each time their moves force him to make a wrong move. Terrorists only
fear one move—a move of forcefulness and strength. Instead, our
President seems to give in to them.
And is there any question
as to why we see the disappearance of the concept of earning a living?
Let’s bring back our missing word—earn—as well as a culture of ethics,
family values and honor.
do we overcome all these things, many ask? We hear these things said by
Glenn, Rush, Sean, Laura and O’Reilly, but what can we American families
answer is simple. We all still have the power to vote. This November
2nd, we can throw out most of the Congressional members who aid and abet
both Marxism and Terrorism. This will help bring back a conservative,
fiscally responsive government. We can finish the job in 2012. Meanwhile
just concentrate on getting lovers of liberty and freedom to do all that
is humanly possible to get out the vote...the one just 11 months from
now, and then another one in two years. Do we have what it takes to
repeat the bravery of 1776 and keep a free country in both 2010 and
