President Obama has now been in power for 64 months (2009-14). Since his first presidential campaign in 2008, Obama's theme of "Hope and Change" has resonated in different ways with Americans.

Some of the Obama administration's main goals are socialized health care and redistribution of the country's wealth. As the country prepares for this November's midterm elections, the unpopularity of some of the White House policies are resonating throughout the country. There is a distinct possibility that Democrats will lose the Senate largely due to their liberal leader.

Perhaps it is time for all Americans to compare this president with another infamous liberal from America's political history.

Saul David Alinsky(January 30, 1909 – June 12, 1972) was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing. He is often noted for his book Rules for Radicals. From that book here are Saul's thoughts on how to create a social state:

There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important:

1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people

2) Poverty – Increase the poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

Does anyone feel a chill down their spine?
