The Roots of the Radical

Obama learned his political technique in Chicago. The Chicago famous for bringing home the fraudulent votes for JFK to beat Nixon in ’60 among other notorious things.

It was in Chicago that Obama learned the technique of “Community Organizing” that was perfected by Saul Alisky. Drawn on largely by his own experiences, Alisky wrote Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals in 1971.

In the opening paragraph of the first chapter, Alinsky writes, "What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away".

For the community organizer to gain power, he must essential raise discontent among the people- essentially becoming manipulators of his subjects. Why do you think the Obama infomercial was all about the suffering of Americans?

Politically, Obama is a true radical, with the #1 liberal voting record in the Senate. His policies are socialist at heart – distribute wealth from the rich to the poor, socialize medicine, heavy handed centralized government control of schools, industy and more, an opinion that America lacks both economic and social “justice”. He wants to “fundamentally transform America.” Personally, I don't want to change America, improve it yes, fundamentally change it, no.

When you read through this list of rulesfor radicals detailed in the book, think of all the ways Obama’s mastered them. These laws are exceedingly manipulative and truly anti-American. Basically, they guide one to be anything but honest with the people about what one intends to do.

1. Alinsky's approach is not used by very many groups today. It was effective decades ago in certain places and in certain situations.

2. Sarah Palin told WMAL-AM (Washington, D.C.) she fears her First Amendment rights may be threatened by "attacks" from reporters who suggest she is engaging in a negative campaign against Barack Obama.

She said that for reporters or columnists to suggest that he comments about Obama was too negative may constitute an attack that threatens a candidate's free speech rights under the Constitution.

What Palin forgets, or never knew, is that the ability of media to criticize a political candidate that is a classic example of First Amendment rights being exercised, not abridged.

3. John McCain will be on Saturday Night Live tomorrow.

4. CNN reports that Ron Duberstein, Ronald Reagan's former chief of staff, said he will vote for Obama.

5. CNN has moved North Dakota from McCain to toss-up, and Arizona from strong McCain to leaning McCain. If McCain were to win all the toss-up states, he would still lose. CNN has Obama with 21 more electoral votes than needed to win.

6. CNN also just interviewed a group of young African Americans in Georgia who waited in line 5 hours to vote. CNN said other waited 8-10 hours.

You can't just string together a bunch of random facts and expect an actual argument to emerge. We're not playing six degrees of Barack Obama and your not Sarah Palin.

It is quite desperate to claim that becuase Alinsky and Obama both resided in Chicago and were community organizers would make their views the same. Saul Alinsky had died before Obama had ever stepped foot in Chicago. If you think that's solid logic, you must also be one of those people who believe Alaska's proximity to Russia contributes to someones foreign policy experience.

You really didn't have to dig deep in the republican playbook to pull out the socialist card. It understandable that in a last ditch effort to scare people into voting for him McCain is trying to paint Obama red. That's old school dirty politics.

If you want to appear credible, I would suggest that you not simply regurgitate what all the other right-wing blowhards are saying, becuase I hate to tell ya, but your brand ain't so hot right now.

So is he is new blogger?

Why not post the writings of Adolf Hitler, because FatBoy Higby says Obama supporters are like Hitler's followers. Obama is the next Hitler, see if that scare tactic works for you fools.

And is Maxima 10 the "new Quixote"?He expresses the same bitter intent, as though he'd been abused / desensitized and can only lash out with innuendo, half-truths, and slurs. One might think the image of Prof Irwin Corey would deserve better, but no.
Judging from his comment above the thinly veiled Don should heed advice he's thrown around in the past and not "comment while drunk"..

Higby - you better watch your beloved Fox News, Florida nd Indiana have previously unseen numbers of early voters, and many are black.

Is Higby's new friend going to tell us about the corruption and radicalism of early balck voters.

Is Early black voters on the long list "Roots of Radical" which I did not bother to read, because Obama has used the radical trick of early voters.
