Election about power

Watching the Democratic convention’s platform presentation provided some real clarity. The Democrats adamantly oppose Citizen’s United and just as adamantly support abortion, both the “law of the land.” One is about money and the ability to speak, vote and influence. The other is an unborn child who can’t speak, vote or influence.

What is clear is this election is not about “we the people,” the “middle class” or “the working poor.” It’s not even about change or making history. It comes straight out of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” It’s about power. The first rule is to get it. The second rule is to keep it.
