Republicans still allow themselves to be victimized by old Saul Alinsky's "best" disciples When political victories deny the freedom and enterprise building combined application of subsidiarity and solidarity, the people and the nation lose in the resulting moral vacuum.
Lest we forget; Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" dedicated to Lucifer and held dear by the "progressive" movement:
>Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.
>Never go outside the expertise of your people.
>Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.
>Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.
>Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.
>A good tactic is one your people enjoy.
>A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.
>Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.
>The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
>The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.
>If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.
>The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.
>Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
The thoughtful reader need not delve too deep into these 13 "weeds" to see they are effectively designed as a means of deception and to reduce the opponent to ineffectiveness by vilification and lies. Anyone notice how liars are now able to look you straight in the face? My wife says you can still see spots in their eyes when they are lying. For "progressives", all they have to do is open their mouths. The spots are just added decoration.
