Dear Editor:

America slept while our country was undermined from within. Now socialism has reared its ugly head in America, the land of the free.

Obviously, Barack and Hillary were only the tip of the mountain of admirers, of Socialist Saul Alinsky, and of his ideas on “How to Create a Socialist State” in which he listed eight levels of control needed before one could create a socialist state. He was talking about “America,” not one state.

Now some are saying that Alinsky’s “eight levels of control” are well in-place in America today. Others are still hanging on the outcome of future presidential elections.

Number one on Alinsky’s list was healthcare. He said, “Control health care and you control the people.”

Alinsky presented himself as a champion of the poor on No.2. However, he wanted to increase the poverty level because “poor people are easier to control.”

On No.3, He wrote, “Increase the debt to an unsustainable level in that way enabling you to increase taxes thereby, producing more poverty.

Take guns away to “remove people’s ability to defend themselves from the Government” is No. 4 on his list. He said, in that way you are able to create a police state.

Like most ungodly socialists, Alinsky said, “remove the belief in God from the Government and schools and take control of what children learn in school.” He also wrote, think, “Common Core.”

While we slept, our children, grandchildren, and great-grand- children, are well indoctrinated to be enslaved. As Alinsky wrote in his 5th control, “Take control of every aspect of their lives, (food, housing, and income).”

Wake-Up, America; Wake-Up! Remain Free!
