I think this may be as fair of a look at his dedication as any other (from Wikipedia), Plus this quote includes all of the Lucifer reference instead of just a clip. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saul_Alinsky
I like this part of the Wiki article.....

"In Rules for Radicals, he argued that the most effective means are whatever will achieve the desired ends..."


So to him the end justify the means.

Apply that logic to real life and see where it takes you. Probably to prision.

So, on a similar theme (i.e. no hijack):

What do y'all think about requiring an ID to vote? I keep hearing that perfectly reasonable measure to ensure the most basic integrity being attacked as being a tool to keep voters from voting. My favorite is that it is a form of "poll tax' in that you have to obtain a government-issued ID at some nominal cost...

btw, I'm all for it. That. and I oppose the Obamatoids efforts to reinstate voting rights for felons, since they've determined that convicted felons are a Obama-friendly pool of voters.

btw, the term "Obamatoid" refers to the legions of Obama faithful that, because they are not "official campaign staffers" (like moveon.org) are free to do all manner of questionable things to promote their candidate, while leaving said candidate's hands clean (i.e. the Sarah Palin attacks).

Would there be something wrong with tracking voters through social security numbers?
