Alinsky's Rules for Radicals and how they can work for us.

This is a preliminary draft. The article may be further elaborated upon with new and pertinent additions.

These are the “Rules for Radicals” developed by Saul Alinsky with the purpose of establishing strategies to fight against the democratically elected governments and the free market corporations. These rules are very effective. But, ironically, the same rules can be used today by conservative patriots to fight against a socialist/communist government that is creeping into America. See how you can identify and use these rules for our cause:

RULE 1: "Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have."

The Tea Parties have given a hint to the government of who we are, and what we stand for. But we know we have something that they don’t, we have something that they don’t think or believe we have, and that is: resolve. We cannot afford to lose this battle because if we do, two or more generations after us will suffer dire consequences. We have no excuse to be idle and do nothing or do not enough. Can you imagine your children and your children’s children staring at you and pointing a finger at you saying “you could have done something about it and you didn’t”. Do we have what it takes to fight for us, for our children, for our country, for our Constitution? We must show and display that we are fighting a battle we cannot afford to lose. Or everything is lost. Here lies our strength and our motivation.
Does the government know the power we have? I am not sure it does, otherwise, it would either listen to what w have to say or take drastic measures to counterbalance our numbers and powers.

On the other hand, do we know what power the government has? We have seen so far mainly executive and legislative power. But is it this all the government rely upon to balance our position or they have powers that we are still unaware of? Where do the military, law enforcement and intelligence agencies stand. These and other questions must be answered if we are to have a real and convincing idea who and what we stand against.

RULE 2: "Never go outside the expertise of your people."

Fortunately, ours is not a small organization or group. There are millions of Americans willing to engage in this battle for the return or our nation on the path laid out by our Forefathers. There is plenty of talent and expertise, plenty of knowledge and information. If we sum it all up, we have a superior advantage upon our adversaries. And because of all this, we can concentrate our efforts on many fronts at once with the advantage on our side. But we must make sure that talent, expertise and experience is properly and effectively motivated to join our ranks and become actively involved.

RULE 3: "Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy."

Our adversaries may be experts in their fields. But they are not experts in all fields. That is where we must concentrate our efforts: identify and exploit their weaknesses. And there are plenty of them. After all, they are humans too, and they can also feel insecure, anxious, uncertain, disoriented, confused. When we manage to bring them out in the field and play by our rules, we take them away from where they feel comfortable and secure and disrupt their wicked works. It will not be easy to engage the adversaries while they dwell in their comfortable and secure zone. And bringing them out will take ingenuity and smart tactics. But we have the means and talent to do it, and do it effectively.

RULE 4: "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules."

The Constitution must and should always be the rule by which we must demand our adversaries to abide by. There is no room for interpretations and diversion from the clear articles and amendments. We must know the rules, we must know the Constitution by heart, we must be relentless in bringing up the rules and make them live and act accordingly. Refusal to do so will place them in an uncomfortable situation that will make them weaker and weaker. If we manage to make them aware that the rules are there for them to follow and obey, they have one of two options: obey them or be removed. There are constitutional means by which we the people can hold our representatives and senators accountable for not honoring the oath of office they took when they were sworn in. And, based on the relentless and irresonsible manner in which our Constitution has been manipulated and distorted, even ignored thus far, we must take clear and concise action to stop them from doing more damage to our Country that what they have already done. The Law is on our side and we must find the proper way to enforce it.

RULE 5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon."

Every person has his or her weaknesses. Whenever possible, bring them up in the open, expose them and make them feel embarrassed and guilty. They are hurting us at a personal level through all the policies and measures that takes away our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms. So, we must take things personally, and return the favor personally. There is no defense against being publicly ridiculed and embarrassed. It causes the most balanced person to lose control and say or make things that will go against him. An angry person acts impulsively and says and makes mistakes that will hurt him or his position or agenda. A fearful person acts irrationally and is easily pushed into a position of making concessions. Our adversary’s weakness is our strength.

RULE 6: "A good tactic is one your people enjoy."

The Tea Parties have been to a certain point very enjoyable. People of all races, creeds and ages have gathered together in a manner in which they enjoyed mutual company and enjoyed the goal of their actions. American people are very creative and can make any rally or demonstration an enjoyable while effective activity. And the memories will encourage them to come back for more. There is plenty of talent and expertise to bring into the movement new ways of doing things.

RULE 7: "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag."

We must do whatever in our power to continue the pressure and gain more and more momentum. And we must do it in a manner that will make us enjoy it. There are plenty of ideas and imagination to bring new and more exciting ways to motivate us to continue the fight and do it in a manner that will encourage us to go for more.
RULE 8: "Keep the pressure on. Never let up."
The April 15 Tea Parties have already become part of American history. But we cannot leave it to the history alone. We must continue to mobilize and keep the pressure on. We have gained momentum and must keep it going forward. There are other national rallies in the works, one on the 4th of July, and another in September. But in the meantime, we must organize smaller, more localized rallies and demonstrations, with focused and concentrated messages and demands. City Halls, Sheriffs Departments, Police Departments, Boards of Educations, are all valid places where we must gather in front of, and make a stand. I have suggested that every weekend from now on should be used for constant and continuous gatherings and rallies. Many people who have no idea what is going on will approach, and if we have a clear message, they will join and become new allies.

RULE 9: "The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself."

Our adversaries know what our goal is. But they cannot ascertain our resolve in going after it. They believe that they have the power and the means to demoralize us and disband any rally or demonstration. They may, here and there, but they cannot be everywhere at the same time. So, we have the advantage of being a decentralized and well spread movement that can make it very difficult to control. One large gathering in one place can easily be disbanded. But hundreds or thousands of smaller activities are hard to impossible to subdue.

RULE 10: "If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive."

We must not fear repercussions. We must stand firm and not give up. Any attempts by the authorities to deprive us from our constitutional right to peacefully assemble, will gain sympathy to our cause and ad numbers to our flanks. We must be consistent and firm while peaceful and orderly. We must not fear infiltrations from our adversaries with the purpose to cause disorder and chaos, because if it happens, will bring more attention to our just cause. And that is something that our adversaries will try to avoid as much as possible.

RULE 11: "The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative."

Contingency plans and alternative gatherings and rallies must be put in place. If one movement is disrupted or disbanded, we must have a predetermined alternative rallying point. We cannot lose momentum because we neglected to take into consideration the possibility of a failed or disbanded effort. All participants must be informed of alternative places of gathering and instructions must be followed. Churches or places of worship can become effective and active centers for organizing and directing the masses. Christians of all denominations must be encouraged to get involved and become active. After all, it this is also a battle for our freedom of worship, and if we fail, we all fail, including Christians. Church leaders must be willing to sacrifice their tax exempt status that keeps or prevents them from becoming politically active. If we are to accept the statistics, over 80% of the American population confesses to be Christian. That would project a number of approximately 240 million Americans. This is a force to really be reckoned with if we manage to convince them that America belongs to them too, and if we lose our battle, they will lose too by their inaction. Forget about organized religion in America which is an instrument in the hands of our adversaries. The Church as an organized body has prostituted itself with the government in exchange of money and tax exemptions. We must approach and get the local churches involved.

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."

Our efforts must be focused and concentrated on specific demands and protests. Our adversaries must know well what we stand for and what we demand. Posters and signs must be consistent with the purpose of the gathering. The size, colors and styles used can vary and bring variety, but the message must be clear and concise. Nothing can hurt us more than hundreds of signs and posters each saying or demanding something different.
Organizers must produce fliers describing our situation and our struggle. These fliers then must be posted on line and every person having a computer, a printer and an internet connection can then download the flier and make as many prints as they can afford. These fliers, in turn, must be distributed as widely as possible, everywhere. We have the potential of printing millions and millions of fliers and distribute them in our neighborhoods, on the street corners, in parks and other public places. We can flood the country with patriotic messages and calls to become active in saving our Nation from the clutches of the Globalist agenda which is aiming at imposing in America a system of government that is totally anti American and anti Constitutional.


We have been pushed by our government beyond the point of no return, because we have nothing to return to other than total domination by a socialist/communist/fascist system of government that will affect several generations of Americans. This system has failed in every place or instance where it was instituted, and will fail again. But we can stop it now before it grabs all of our freedoms, or let the burden to our children and children’s children. History will judge America not for what her enemies did to her, but for what we the people failed to do when America called us into action. America belongs to Americans, and as long as there is even one man left standing to fight, America will survive. This great country was given to us by God Himself, and only God will take it away from us. Not men.

A Matter of Priorities

In the last several months I have become quite active in several chat rooms. As a Christian Patriot, I choose to visit and engage in discussions in chat rooms that share my values and my faith. In general, the discussions and conversations are conducted in a civil and respectful manner. But, like in any other aspects of life, there are always points of disagreement, and there is nothing wrong with that, except for the fact that most disagreements turn into harsh exchanges and to some degree, they become offensive.

We all come to the rooms with our own preconceptions, ideas and beliefs. We have been so accustomed to them, that any disagreement is considered a personal attack on the member, rather than on the idea or opinion. Agree to disagree is nothing more than an excuse to hold on to one side of an issue, while considering the other side wrong. It is quite frequent that several members in a chat room band together to attack an opinion with which they don’t agree, and if the holder of that opinion defends his or hers point of view, is being accused of trying to force their opinion on the others. Chat rooms become battle grounds, and no one is willing to acknowledge that he or she may be wrong.

And Christian chat rooms are no exception. Whether it is a theological or doctrinal issue or an interpretation of the current events, each person has its own set of standards and understandings that have become so ingrained in their beliefs, that anything contrary is considered a personal attack, even when clear proof is brought forth, especially from the Word of God, the Bible.

The state of fear and uncertainty that we live in today has caused many to openly or not, either deny clear teachings of the Bible or place a “reasonable” doubt regarding the validity of the Word of God in today’s world. I have heard Christians stating that what the Bible teaches is not always applicable today, because it was written in different time than the one we live in today.

Clear examples: “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” is considered almost offensive. “How can I not lean on my own understanding? God gave me a brain to use it, so that’s what I am going to do, even if it means ignoring what the Bible teaches”. And this becomes a dangerous territory that will surely bring us to suffering and tribulations.

There is no middle ground in this: you either trust in God and live accordingly, or you don’t. God has promised to “never leave us nor forsake us”. Yet, many take it only as some nice words, but very unpractical, because we believe that we can do better without God. And then we stumble and fall and get hurt. And rather than acknowledging that we have sinned by not trusting in God, we find something or someone to blame for our failures.

How far should we trust God and when should we trust other things or other people or even our own perception of what is going on? Well, the answer is simple: you trust Him in everything or you trust Him in nothing. No middle ground, no grey areas.

Critics may say that such an attitude is a fatalistic one, that it implies just sitting and waiting for God to do everything. Nothing is farther from the truth. The Holy Spirit of God is an active presence in the heart and the mind of the believer, and He will always instruct us and guide us in the things that He wants us to do according to His will. Do we obey and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit or we disobey and do things our way? The question can be answered by those who have taken things in their hands and have fallen.

There is suffering, there is pain, there is despair, there is uncertainty when we believe we can do better than God. Faith is being tested all the time, and if we leave in fear and anxiety is a sure sign that we did not pass the test. We cry out “why isn’t God doing something about this or that?” But we fail to realize that the consequences of our actions are a direct response to our lack of faith and our disobedience.

As I take yet another look at the Ten Commandments, I cannot help but notice the first one: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me”. Why is this commandment so important that God put it in the top of the ten? Well, if we obey and follow the first, everything will fall into the right place. If we don’t, then everything else will fall apart. Including America. It’s a simple matter of priorities.

Love and War

The position of Jesus Christ regarding war, it is not clearly specified in the New Testament of the Bible. Jesus Christ always taught love and peace, to the point of telling us that we should even love our enemies. But the times Jesus Christ lived on earth, Israel was an occupied territory by the Roman Empire, and even as He makes some comments and references about it, His position was never a political or military one. To properly appreciate and understand the biblical position regarding war, we must look at the whole Bible and the teachings of God through many prophets, kings and military leaders. The Bible consists of the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament is full of instances where God Himself has instructed His people, Israel to go to war against its enemies. Furthermore, the manner in which those wars were to be conducted would be considered by today's men's standards, barbaric and criminal, since often God instructed Israel not only to kill the enemies (soldiers) but also their women, children and livestock, and burn down and destroy their homes and settlements, their crops and their lands. Things are different in the New Testament, where the emphasis is made on love, peace, in helping others and even sacrifice for them. And yet, we believe in one God who is the same, yesterday, today and forever, and who changes not.

Many Christians avoid reading and studying the Old Testament, other than perhaps the Book of Psalms, the Book of Proverbs, the Book of Isaiah, and a few other which makes very little if any reference to war. When wandering in the desert, after being freed from the slavery in Egypt, God has given His Laws to His people, Israel, and, again, many of the God given Laws were, by today's standards, cruel and barbaric.

One of the Ten Commandments is, "you shall not murder". Unfortunately, biased readers of the Bible interpret the word murder in a convenient and "politically correct" manner, and find no reason at all to take the life of another human being. That is being taken totally out of context and true meaning, since the Commandment prohibits the intentional, premeditated and unjustified taking of an innocent person's life. Nowhere in the Bible, Old Testament and New Testament, is self defense prohibited, even to the point of taking the life of an aggressor as a last resource.

It is worth mentioning that Jesus Christ was tortured and crucified not by the Jews, since there was nothing according to God given Laws that Jesus has violated to the point of deserving the death penalty. That is the reason Jesus Christ was taken to the Romans and it was the Romans who put Jesus Christ on the cross, even as Jesus Christ was found innocent by the Roman Procurator Pontius Pilate.

Back to the issue of love and war, if you love someone, you will do whatever you can to protect him/her, even if protection means taking the attacker's life as a last resort to save your loved one's life. For a time, even here in the United States, killing in self defense was not considered a crime, until the liberal cancer persuaded the Courts that even the criminal has rights and if killed while committing a crime, the killer is charged with homicide or manslaughter, and most likely spend the rest of his/her life in prison. As stupid and unjust as it sounds, criminals have more rights that law abiding citizens.

On a larger scale, a nation has all the right in the world to defend itself against enemies that not only have sworn to destroy the nation and kill its citizens, but have actually done that, both on its territory and abroad. When the enemy has publicly declared that it will do whatever they can to harm you and your people and destroy your nation, and has supported their threats with action, it is completely reasonable to take preventive measures, even to the point of hunting them down and eliminating them.

And that is what the Unites states must do. We have no other choice, because the enemy will never sit down to negotiate peace, because the enemy doesn't want peace but the destruction of America and the killing of innocent men, women and children. There is only one option left, and that is, extermination. It is a matter of kill or be killed.

The Paradox of Free Will

There has always been and continues to be a grand debate regarding whether we have or we do not have free will. What is free will? One definition would be, “the ability to do something without any interference, influence or compulsion”. Yet, I have challenged anyone to give a simple manifestation of genuine free will and thus far, nobody has ever been able to give one. The reason is simple: we do not have free will; that is, genuine free will. Everything we do is in one way or another influenced by events, feelings, emotions, circumstances, environment, events, etc. over which we have little or no control whatsoever. All we do is reacting to these factors in the manner in which we deem proper or convenient. Hence, our action or lack thereof is never independent of these factors.

As a Christian, I believe that throughout history, there were only 5 persons who actually had and exercised genuine free will: God the Creator of all things, Lucifer, Adam, Eve and of course, Jesus Christ. Each were or are perfect in all senses, and perfection includes genuine free will, without which they would not be perfect.

Lucifer was perfect in all senses. And his perfection included the ability to have and exercise genuine free will. He did so, but did it in a manner which negated his own perfection, therefore, he lost it. From that moment on, all his actions were and still are motivated and influenced by one desire: to harm and damage God’s Creation, mainly, mankind.

Adam and Eve were created perfect and as such, they had within them the ability to exercise genuine free will. They did so, and under the influence of Lucifer (Satan) they made the wrong choice and lost it. From that moment on, their will has been under the influence and power of agents outside of their control. They acquired a sinful nature and all of their will is expressed and experienced within the frame and limitation of their nature.

Only God the Creator and Jesus Christ, His Son have retained genuine free will for the simple reason that they are able and capable to take action without any interference, influence or limitation.

The illusion of free will that we have is obviously inspired and influenced by the presence and works of Satan in the lives of all humans in general, and of the Christians in particular. We simply react to our environment and circumstances over which we have no control whatsoever. Yet, we do know that God is in absolute control of all things in the Universe. And He has a plan for each and every person who ever lived, lives or will live until the time of the Great Judgment. And since His power and control are total, permanent and absolute, we know that his will, will be accomplished to perfection.

On Seperation of Church and State

By Conservative Underground

I recently listened to an exchange on the issue of the role of church in our government on the Domination, a blogtalkradio show that aired yesterday… I felt compelled to blog about this issue because of an inherent misunderstanding on the subject displayed a handful of conservatives today.

This issue of the role of church in our government has been long debated over the course of our history. Some have argued to go as far as to say faith has no legitimate role as a basis for coming up with laws to govern this nation, while others contend that the first amendment was written as a way to prevent the establishment of a national religion (theocracy) and protect the establishment of all religions. In order to fully understand the intent of the founders when they put together the constitution, one must take into consideration the historical context surrounding the writing of this amendment. When doing this it can be seen that this was designed to protect the people and maintain a stability in the government

Divide and Conquer

A typical military strategy used to effectively fragment the enemy forces into smaller units and/or groups and make them easier to destroy or render useless, it is also used in many other aspects of life. Tyrannical governments have used it successfully to shatter into pieces the resistance or opposition into small, manageable units that are either bribed into submission or simply, eliminated.

The current government in America is using experts to devise new and more effective ways to render the opposition harmless. And to a certain point, the tactic has been very successful. However, the administration has a strong and unexpected ally: the very American people who are opposing it.

The amount of infighting and self inflicted division is taking new heights. There is an abundance of self made leaders who are calling for action, each having their own agenda and tactics. Did I say calling for action? Yes, I did, but the call remains only that: a call. Everybody knows we need to do something, but nobody knows what to do or how to do it. It comes with the territory. Improvisation usually is not an effective tactic.

What really bugs me is one aspect of the opposition that is tearing us apart more than anything else: too many of the self called leaders are forgetting and failing to take into consideration what I believe to be the most important factor of all: God.

America has been founded on clear and concise Judeo Christian biblical teachings and principles. Within the zeal of the “leaders” to become an effective force in our struggle to regain America, unfortunately, God is pushed aside, as if without Him we could have any chance of success. We are deluding ourselves. No nation which has turned its back on God has ever been successful in establishing a solid foundation. And I am not talking about using God as a crutch to gain supporters. A clear conscience and a faithful following of the biblical teachings especially regarding a solid and continuous relationship with the Creator of the Universe is a “sine qua non” condition for any successful attempt to unify our forces and claim divine intervention in our struggle and fight.

“Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked: that which you sow you shall also reap”.
With God, all things are possible, without God we can do nothing. We either return to our basic Christian foundation of America, or we lost the battle before we even start. There are no grey areas in between: we are either with God or we are against God.

Choose wisely, for the future of our nation rests on your choice.

Why we lost the battle for America

Never in the history of America have we been under such a grave danger of losing our freedoms and liberties. And never in the history of America has the American people been so weak and careless. We know the danger and all we do about it is talk, and talk, and talk. Thousands of web sites, radio shows, blogs, articles and so on are simply “talking”. And it make us feel good. We talk and we rant, and we complain, and then we have fun in chat rooms and forums. And life goes on.

All the while, this government is consolidating powers to take away our freedoms and liberties one piece at a time. Silently, quietly, but consistently and continuously. We are so immersed in useless activities that the Government is advancing its agenda without any opposition. We are playing in their hands, and we enjoy it, while the Government is laughing at us. But, hey, we are having fun, right?

And one day, the whole weight of the hammer reaches us at a personal level and we wake up. But then it is too late, because all of our freedoms and liberties will be gone. For good. And the Government will claim total victory and will take total control of our lives.

So, let’s keep talking and talking and talking.
