‘Rules for Revolution’

To the editor: This will be short and direct. I’m done trading barbs with the Cole brothers. I just consider the source and consider it a compliment. I’ll leave it by inviting each of you to read, if you have not already done so, Rules for Radicals also known as “Rules for Revolution” by Saul Alinsky and “The Prince” by Niccolo Machiavelli to understand the methods and means of the Coles and their fellow travelers. Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are disciples of Saul Alinsky and I would wager a bit Machiavellian as well.

In a society where individuals choose to be free, it is every citizen’s responsibility to become informed and know enough to make rational decisions and judgments. After reading the above suggestions you will be better prepared to do that.

Freedom is the prize.

Responsibility is the price.
