With the ease of a progressive, they will slip right in there, "what's so bad about socialism", "we are part of a global community", "collectively we can get more accomplished", "it's morally the right thing to do".
Words are important things people. We were told early on what would happen in just this four year period, "fundamentally transform" and we didn't stop to think what that really meant. We have been asleep for a very long time while they slipped in during the dark of night (ok getting melodramatic here but it's fun) to feed us little bits and drabs of socialism till we wake one day only to realize we've given away our rights and our children's rights.
Goals to take over or collapse our system to be replaced with their own include gaining control over:
Keep the list handy and check off each item as it happens. But only if you are too stupid or asleep to stand up and stop it BEFORE it happens.
I know, you sit there and think that the liberals haven't succeeded in anything substantial in decades so why the alarm bells? Why when all the policies they get in place actually end up failing? But are they failing? Or do they actually have a plan, a plan to overload the system, create their crisis (never let a good crisis go to waste).
That is exactly the strategy put forth in the sixties by Cloward & Piven, radical leftist Columbia University professors.
Cloward and Piven stated that the ruling classes used welfare (Democrats!!) to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion. This all began with the Los Angeles Watts riots for Cloward & Piven but the Progressive Movement began much earlier.
American Daughter has an excellent three part series on Cloward & Piven with a final installment entitled "Hate Crimes Legislation - Back Door Censorship". What is especially eye catching to me is the dates - all before the election. They were warning us about Obama BEFORE he won the election. And we didn't listen.
But back to Cloward & Piven. Overloading the system to prove it's inadequacies became their modus operandi. They organized to bring more and more onto the welfare rolls. They started voting rights groups that eventually grew into what we now know as ACORN. They also have strong ties to George Soros' Open Society Institute.
Discover The Networks also has a great write up of our lovely couple. And they are an excellent source of information in general.
If you can read these articles and still sit back to watch Survivor or The Good Wife well, then I have nothing for you. Here's hoping at least a seed has been planted.
