Saul Alinsky's book *RULES FOR RADICALS*
A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploition of the proletariat by the capitalists, from there logically proceed to the revolution to end capitalism, and then into the third stage of reorganzation into a new social order of the proletariat, and finally the last stage---the politcal paradise of communism. Saul Alinsky
Obama as a young man, became a master practitiener of Alinsky's metheds.
Hillary Clinton has maintained her allegiance to Alinsky.
Chris Matthews has called Alinsky his hero, and a hero to the left.
I get sick of the whole "liberals are communists" argument, with no distinction between a TRUE left winger (Communist) and the average Dem voter.
Progressives are communists. Liberals are not but they are not able to see the progressive movement inside the democrat party. I wish they would wake up and take their party back. Bill Clinton was a liberal. I would take him back any day over what we have in the White House and many in congress now. Nancy Pelosi, Obama, Howard Dean, Harry Reid, Dennis Kucinich, and many others.

Hillary called herself an early 1900 progressive. How much proof of taking over of the democratic party do we need? A Congressional representative sat in a hearing and slipped saying this nation would be socialist. PBO has surrounded himself with registered democrats who profess to be progressive. They came "out of the closet" with PBO's win. These people aren't ashamed of being progressive and don't care what you think. We are trying so hard to get back to some fundamentals and less fed. intrusion.
