In case you missed this.

Democrats are finally owning up to being Alinski followers...

Just who is this Alinksi ?

First off...if you dont know...you simply arent paying enough attention...

educate yourself:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saul_Alinsky

In Rules for Radicals, Alinsky outlines his strategy in organizing, writing in the prologue,

"There's another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevski said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. To bring on this reformation requires that the organizer work inside the system, among not only the middle class but the 40 per cent of American families - more than seventy million people - whose income range from $5,000 to $10,000 a year [in 1971]. They cannot be dismissed by labeling them blue collar or hard hat. They will not continue to be relatively passive and slightly challenging. If we fail to communicate with them, if we don't encourage them to form alliances with us, they will move to the right. Maybe they will anyway, but let's not let it happen by default."

Son sees father's handiwork in convention
August 31, 2008

ALL THE elements were present: the individual stories told by real people of their situations and hardships, the packed-to-the rafters crowd, the crowd's chanting of key phrases and names, the action on the spot of texting and phoning to show instant support and commitment to jump into the political battle, the rallying selections of music, the setting of the agenda by the power people. The Democratic National Convention had all the elements of the perfectly organized event, Saul Alinsky style.

Barack Obama's training in Chicago by the great community organizers is showing its effectiveness. It is an amazingly powerful format, and the method of my late father always works to get the message out and get the supporters on board. When executed meticulously and thoughtfully, it is a powerful strategy for initiating change and making it really happen. Obama learned his lesson well.

I am proud to see that my father's model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.

Oh and Final note...

Hillery clintons college thesis was wriiten on *drum roll please*...Alinksi

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_Rodham_senior_thesis

If you think Obama wants to actually help you...you are ignorant of his whole backround and mindset.

A movie quote if I may that applies:

"When you understand the nature of a thing...you know what it's capable of"

Now if you managed to wade though all that.....maybe you'll look Obama's actions in a different light....

It's all about control...and creating the curcumstances where people become desperate for that control...and actually demand it...

America must be torn apart before it can be remade...
