I love to read books! Six years ago I read books titled Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope. Barack Obama was given as the author of these highly polished "autobiographies" of his life. These books clearly document that Obama was fully qualified to be a community organizer in the Chicago intercity. One of his successful community projects resulted when he joined forces with the Reverend Jeremiah Wrights' congregation and became a Christian. While in Chicago he was surrounded with "socialist" active individuals in city government.
I have just finished reading a book that influenced the socialist protesters prevalent in the Chicago while he was a community organizer. The book was Rules of Radicals written by Saul D. Alinsky, a social activist in Chicago during period 1960 to 1970. He indicated that the book was to provide instructions to community organizers in how to effectively lead the "poor in getting theirs from the rich." Saul wrote that the rich are only rich because of the wickedness of the federal system and that the system must be totally changed from within by radicals. Saul Alinsky conducted training session around the nation on how to be an effective community organizer. Some of his students included Hillary Clinton, Valarie Jared, and others now part of Obama's White House staff.
Obama is following many of the principles as outlined in Rules for Radicals. One of the rules for radicals was the necessity for major changes of the federal governing system. Obama and his White House staff have been every effective in implementing the major radical. Changes that have fundamental changed our nation for the worse. Educated yourself about why he thinks like he does! Read the books! They are in your local library!
