The 2008 election was aimed, as Barack Obama said, "to fundamentally change America." The American people did not do their homework. They thought he believed in the original paradigm. They were intentionally misled, but this could have been prevented.(from news-herald.com)
Ask the leaders of the Democratic party who Saul Alinsky is and you will likely get obfuscation. They will tell you Barack Obama spent three years teaching Alinsky's philosophy and methods but he likely will not answer questions about Alinsky. Hillary Clinton wrote her college dissertation on Alinsky but you won't likely get a peep out of her.
Bluntly put, Alinsky is opposed to freedom. He is an elitist. He believed in communism and atheism. The fundamental values, as stated at the beginning of this column, are seen by Alinsky as horrors that have created mass inequities and careless behavior. What makes Alinsky dangerous is that he is insidious.
Alinsky's primary approach to politics is deceit. The ends justify the means. He would create a communist Utopia dominated by his friends but not through open and honest debate. Therefore, they disguise themselves as believers in the republic and democracy. Gaining control is objective No. 1. This was the beginning of their revolution. The goal, then, for Alinsky was "to take from the haves and give to the have-nots."
Obama taught this. He "community organized" under this philosophy. He has surrounded himself with people of like mind. John Holdren, Cass Sunstein, Anita Dunn, Valerie Jarrett, and Van Jones are just a few of the core conspirators.
Alinsky knew the core beliefs of the American people. He knew they had to be deceived and manipulated. His opinion was they were too selfish to give up the America that was constructed by the founding fathers. His followers have taken over the Democratic Party although many Republicans also are participating in the movement under the guise of progressivism.
The change they want will fundamentally eliminate freedom, representative government, democracy, free enterprise, private ownership, individual responsibility and religious faith. I have no problem with them telling you that and putting it up for debate but they will not because they would be thrown out of office.
This strategy has been known since the late 1960s. Since they cannot challenge those positions successfully, the next best thing is to get into the current system through deceit. Tell people you are something you are not. Then destroy people's belief in the system by destroying it from within. This is the strategy employed by the disciples of Alinsky.
Alinsky said, "Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, nonchallenging 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."

The Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. and its unionized employees are heading for a showdown.
The current contract between the supermarket chain and the 43,000 southern New England members of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, or UFCW, is set to expire Feb. 20. And, unsatisfied with the demands being made by the company during negotiations, union organizers are planning a strike vote for Feb. 21.
Stop & Shop, meanwhile, has been advertising for temporary workers to fill positions in case of a work stoppage, a move that union representatives say is merely for show.
"It's just bad theater," said James Riley, secretary-treasurer of the union's Local 328, which represents workers in Rhode Island and on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. "After two negotiation sessions, to put ads all over New England advertising for part-time, temporary help is a slap in the face to all of their people who work for them."
