LETTER TO THE EDITOR: An Alinsky-esque agenda

Question of the Day

Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.?

It is abundantly clear that Barack Obama, the president of the United States, is no friend of this country or the office he holds.

While in Chicago, Mr. Obama trained community organizers to use the methods of radical leftist Saul Alinsky in order to bring about change, and that is what he is doing himself from the White House. Mr. Alinsky was a communist; Mr. Obama, at a minimum, holds socialist-leaning views. Mr. Alinsky advised his students to camouflage their actions and language, to agitate, to manipulate and to create and exploit crises - and then hide the real agenda.

That is why we seldom hear anything like radical socialist language coming from the president, his czars and czarinas or his Democratic friends in Congress. It would seem evident from the actions he has taken in the past 1 1/2 years that Mr. Obama’s real objective in office is to destroy the American republic and establish in its stead a socialist state.
