Cloward-Piven Will Collapse On Itself But Way Too Late

This American Thinker article surmises that the Cloward-Piven theory of overwhelming the system, will, after some civil unrest, collapse on itself. It is not a pretty scenario, but the resulting smaller government and increased freedom in our economy would be a welcome result.

The question now is: how can we disrupt the liberal/progressive juggernaut in order to skip the unwelcome period of austerity and unrest, and go directly to the inevitable ending of reduced government intrusion in our lives? Since both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and the Presidency believe in spending OPM (other peoples' money), it is incumbent upon the voters to replace the "spenders" with fiscal conservatives who will reduce the size of government now.

Had a discussion with a former federal government employee on the 4th, and he said it would be hard to find departments to eliminate. For a start, I would recommend enacting the Fair Tax, and eliminating the IRS and the Dept of Education. Then we can go down the list of departments, determine what needs to be retained, if anything, and trim the fat. Sounds too easy and it probably won't be. In our free society, it is difficult to get any two people to agree on anything and each elected official will be representing their own constituents, as they should. That is why we will need statesmen who will vote to re-establish our national heritage and restore our Constitutional government.
