The Rise of the Dependent Class

“They won’t takeover healthcare” my nephew who voted for Obama tried to assure me. “Besides, in 2010, the Republicans will come back in and fix whatever damage he’s done”. Ah, the naïveté of youth. In a life where education had already descended into telling you what to think instead of teaching how to think, I cannot blame him for assuming that life in America rolls on. He has two daughters and did not have time to read either of Obama’s books nor study the writings of Saul Alinsky, he believed in a system that was on its death bed just waiting for the right political team to come in and pull the plug.

His statement was in response to my explanation of the “end game”, which was Obama’s strategy to finally transform us from a representative Constitutional Republic to a collectivist empire controlled by intellectual elites of one sort or another.

The plan was a simple three step process; enact Cap and Trade, National Health Care and Amnesty for Illegal Aliens.

Cap and Trade is a no brainer, only a fool could believe for a minute that carbon dioxide, the basis for life on earth as we know it, is a pollutant. The purpose of Cap and Trade had nothing to do with saving the planet, but instead was intended to kill middle class jobs. By making it too expensive to do business in the US, the manufacturing jobs that were the engine of prosperity for millions will ultimately be shipped abroad to countries who would never sign up to such an agreement. Saul Alinsky viewed the middle class as the target for destruction. In his world, there were the Haves, the Have-Not’s and the “Have a Little, Want Mores’”. That third group was simultaneously the most vulnerable and the most dangerous, since they had not yet attained the status of the Have’s but would not willingly give up the life they were living for a promise of something better down the road. Only by creating an economic crisis where the middle class faces the threat of losing everything, could Obama begin to exert an influence over them.

Nationalized Health Care is another easy one to understand. Just as everything on the planet needs CO2 to live, everyone eventually needs to see a doctor. If you are beholden to the Government as the sole provider of your health care needs, you live under the constant threat of losing access to that which you deem necessary to live.

The final piece to be put in place is an Amnesty Bill (many people didn’t even notice the march on Washington for “immigration reform” that took place while congress was voting to take over Health Care). By giving 15 to 30 million people the same rights of every other US citizen, including the right to vote in both State and National elections, Obama hopes to create a permanent majority of pro-government voters for decades to come. Most of these people are not in this country as doctors or engineers and therefore will immediately be seeking access to not only our already bankrupt entitlement programs, but the other welfare services that we had intended for our less fortunate citizens..

So how does this all come together? Simple, right now dependency on Government is already at an all time high. According to the 2009 Index of Dependence on Government, the Heritage Foundation’s experts found that the total Americans dependent on the government for their daily housing, food, and health care is a staggering 60.8 million. (Download the full report in PDF.). Now add all the additional people who will be forced to depend on the Government for health Insurance along with all our “new American Citizens” and you quickly approach a point where 51% of the voting population is either dependent on the Federal Government for a job, an entitlement or basic sustenance. Once they are the majority, they will never vote themselves back into the minority and the takeover is complete. Alinsky described this as “the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat”, I call it a Democracy

One of the founding fathers described Democracy as two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. It has taken us nearly a hundred years to reach this point, but the end is in sight.
