he was killed by a Liberal loving ... left leaning .... socialist!!!! Democrats try their best to hide this. Al Gore Sr fought against JFK because he promoted lower taxes and was a pro life catholic.

"With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own."

Democrats used to be good people. Democrats used to be good God-fearing Christians. Democrats used to work hard.

In fact everyone in the south was a loyal Democrat. There was no such thing as Republicans in the south.

Those were the Good Ole Days. The 50's and 60's.

But then LBJ embraced civil rights and integration. He embraced the blacks.

And that meant the Good Ole Days were over.

And everybody in the south realized how out of touch the Democrat party was.

And we all became Christian Conservatives, which is why everyone in the south has voted Republican ever since.

And now there aren't any Democrats in the south, except those who move here from up north. Like Outlaw Racer.

So 50 years later, it's hard to believe that a Democrat like JFK believed in God, hard to believe that a democrat was able to say something intelligent or meaningful, hard to believe that the south used to be Democrat. But just remember, it all started with the darkies taking over.

I blame it on the 1962 supreme court .... along with Obama's buddy Saul Alinsky sand the communist movement.
rules for radicals
Alinsky wrote: "What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."
His “rules” derive from many successful campaigns where he sowed the seeds of class warfare with community organizing, getting people fighting power and privilege, whom he convinced people were the root of all their "problems".
For Alinsky, organizing is the process of highlighting whatever he believed to be wrong and convincing people they can actually do something about it. The two are linked. If people feel they don’t have the power to change a situation, they stop thinking about it.
According to Alinsky, the organizer — especially a paid organizer from outside — must first overcome suspicion and establish credibility. Next the organizer must begin the task of agitating: rubbing resentments, fanning hostilities, and searching out controversy. This is necessary to get people to participate. An organizer has to attack apathy and disturb the prevailing patterns of complacent community life where people have simply come to accept a situation. Alinsky would say,“The first step in community organization is community disorganization.”
Through a process combining hope and resentment, the organizer tries to create a “mass army” that brings in as many recruits as possible from local organizations, churches, services groups, labor unions, corner gangs, and individuals.
Alinsky provides a collection of rules to guide the process. But he emphasizes these rules must be translated into real-life tactics that are fluid and responsive to the situation at hand.
## Rule 1: Power is not only what you have, but what an opponent thinks you have. If your organization is small, hide your numbers in the dark and raise a din that will make everyone think you have many more people than you do.
## Rule 2: Never go outside the experience of your people. The result is confusion, fear, and retreat.
## Rule 3: Whenever possible, go outside the experience of an opponent. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.
## Rule 4: Make opponents live up to their own book of rules.“You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
## Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.
## Rule 6: A good tactic is one your people enjoy.“If your people aren’t having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic.”
## Rule 7: A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag. Commitment may become ritualistic as people turn to other issues.
## Rule 8: Keep the pressure on. Use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period for your purpose.“The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this that will cause the opposition to react to your advantage.”
## Rule 9: The threat is more terrifying than the thing itself. When Alinsky leaked word that large numbers of poor people were going to tie up the washrooms of O’Hare Airport, Chicago city authorities quickly agreed to act on a longstanding commitment to a ghetto organization. They imagined the mayhem as thousands of passengers poured off airplanes to discover every washroom occupied. Then they imagined the international embarrassment and the damage to the city’s reputation.

According to Alinsky, the main job of the organizer is to bait an opponent into reacting.“The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.”

While you got the teachings of Alinsky right I have to ask how he and the current POTUS became 'buddies,' in the true sense of the word. Alinsky died in 1972; Obama was born in 1961. Obama was in Indonesia for the most part 1966-71. Child protege? And yes, consider the rantings of radical right and their media flunkies on this subject said. I know, OBAMA READ THE BOOK!
