The short definition of the Cloward–Piven strategy:
It is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of "a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty".

2. Why is the government shut down without any negotiations other than the unconditional surrender to Obama's dictates?

5. Is the goal of our government to redistribute the wealth of the people to the government as a financial coup d'etat to implement Cloward-Piven?
Would anyone have thought even twenty years ago that we would ever have to ask these questions? But we are not asking these questions. And we are not addressing the one question that is the linchpin for our future:
If it was, we are out of time.
If I had told you one month ago that ten days into the launch of Obamacare not a single person could be confirmed to have successfully enrolled, you would have called me a lunatic. And yet, here we are, tens days into the launch, and guess what? The White House cannot produce a single person who has successfully enrolled through the federally-run exchange Healthcare.gov.
The real story on the catastrophic IT disaster known as Healthcare.gov is only now beginning to be recognized by the nation. As a person with a strong IT background running large R&D projects, I was among the very first to claim that Healthcare.gov is not just broken, it's DOA because of critical design failures.
