Now, I think you are looking at part of this from the wrong end of the
telescope, so to speak. "This is going to give ordinary people
extraordinary influence." I would disagree. This is one slick campaign and
thus, it is all about smoke and mirrors. This door to door business is by
design and the design is to give the *illusion* that ordinary folks have
some influence. The extent of the influence is what is put into speeches.
The candidate of *supposed* change isn't about change or he wouldn't have
hired all the old "Clinton Machine" people.
I wish everyone would take a real good look at what Alinksy is all about and
how it works. It is all about creating the *illusion* of the sheople making
decisions, being in control and having influence.
