The ranks of our entitlement society continue to swell. You’ll remember that in June, more people went on Social Security disability than found a job. A record number of people in June went on Social Security disability. That’s Barack Obama’s recovery: More government checks, fewer actual pay checks.
It looks like July is set to break that June record. The number of people collecting Social Security disability has increased now to 8,753,935. A record month like June could have been considered a fluke by some; does two months make it a trend?
I’ll tell you what IS a trend … virtually every entitlement program out there has seen the same pattern: As the years progress, there are fewer and fewer workers supporting a growing number of entitlement recipients. Such is the case with Social Security disability. The program was created in 1956. By 1967, there were 65 workers for every person collecting disability. By 1987, that ratio had declined to 41 workers for every one person collecting disability. When Dear Ruler took office in January 2009, there were 19 people working for every one person collecting Social Security disability. As of June 2012, there were just 16 workers for every person claiming disability.
One more frightening stat from CNSNews that will put this into perspective:
The 8,753,935 workers who took federal disability insurance payments in July exceeded the population of 39 of the 50 states. Only 11 states—California, Texas, New York, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Georgia, North Carolina and New Jersey—had more people in them than the number of workers on the federal disability insurance rolls in July.
That’s what we call the water slide to economic oblivion – and it is completely intentional. Remember the Cloward-Piven strategy? We covered this just last week in Nealz Nuze. Here’s what I wrote on July 16th:
David Horowitz explains the Cloward-Piven strategy as the following: The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
Implementation of this strategy follows three common features:
The offensive organizes previously unorganized groups eligible for government benefits but not currently receiving all they can.
The offensive seeks to identify new beneficiaries and/or create new benefits.
The overarching aim is always to impose new stresses on target systems, with the ultimate goal of forcing their collapse.
Putting unsustainable numbers of people in this country on Social Security disability is simply a part of this strategy … and you’re seeing it happen right now and right before your unbelieving eyes. There is only so much that a free society can take before it is incapable of supporting entitlement recipients and the moochers (those who didn’t pay into the system at all, and yet collect government checks).
According to some of the people who knew him then …when Barack Obama arrived from Hawaii to Occidental College back around 1980 or so, he came here as a dedicated Marxist revolutionary. His Marxist friends at Occidental convinced him that if America were to become a Marxist society it would have to happen not through revolution, but politically. Fast forward to Obama’s pronouncement that he was going to “fundamentally change the United States of America.”
Look at the growth of our entitlement society! Just consider these bullet points!
The growth of people on Social Security unemployment.
Relaxation of work rules and expansion of welfare programs.
Doubling of foodstamp recipients.
Just what do YOU think is going on here?
