Strategy for Destroying Free Enterprise through Orchestrated Crisis (Part II)

In Part I of this series, we discussed the fact that the Obama Administration is following a well-prepared published plan to manipulate the American People and achieve their unannounced goal of destroying the American free enterprise system and creating a socialist dictatorship before intelligent Americans who are not equipped with factual information catch on to the scheme.

President Obama obviously reads the polls and the reports that indicate an increasing number of people have serious concerns about government run health care.

A disorganized and mostly spontaneous Tea Party was held at congressional offices across the country on Friday, July 17th at Noon. The dominant media has mostly ignored the events, although TV cameras and reporters were on hand to record the events.

Almost 200 people of all ages gathered in front of Sen. Lindsey Graham’s offices in downtown Greenville. Many carried hand-made signs with messages

mostly targeting the Obama administration’s socialist agenda and tyrannical methods. Members of Congress were urged to oppose legislation implementing the socialistic agenda and tyrannical practices.

Strategy for Destroying Free Enterprise through Orchestrated Crisis (First in a Series)

Have you ever heard of the “Cloward-Piven Strategy”? Most Americans not committed to   destroying the free enterprise system in our constitutional republic in order to “redistribute wealth” had never heard of it until recently. Now we are learning that the Cloward-Piven Strategy is the Obama Administration strategy for “change.”

More and more people are finally waking-up to the fact that the man who was elected president of the United States last fall has not kept his promises of reducing taxes and providing and saving jobs. In fact, the results of the first six months of his administration have produced the opposite of what was promised.

DeMint is one of the few Republican Senators who has the courage and self-confidence to take a public stand in favor of preserving the freedom generations of Americans have fought and died to earn and preserve.

At a time when many Americans are discouraged and seeing little hope for future generations, Sen. DeMint is providing a new Declaration of Independence and calling on the American People to reclaim America.

Spartanburg Solicitor has Record, Name Recognition

Harold W. “Trey” Gowdy. ~ Photo by Bob Dill

The Fourth Congressional District candidacy of Republican Harold W. “Trey” Gowdy got a boost, at least in Greenville County, from the withdrawal from the race and strong endorsement by Andrew Smart. Smart was one of four individuals who had announced their intentions of challenging incumbent Congressman Bob Inglis in the 2010 Fourth Congressional District Republican Primary prior to the entry of Gowdy. The remaining announced Republican challengers are Mauldin business owner Jim Lee, Spartanburg professor Christine Jeffrey and State Senator David Thomas who represents senate District 8 in Greenville County. Attorney and former Greenville County Republican Party Chairman Stephen Brown, who considered entering the race, will likely stand down now that Gowdy has tossed his hat in the race.
