Before commenting on the contents of Subversion, I need to say that this book is immensely readable. For a book containing so many documented facts, some people might think that a book like this would be somewhat dry. It is not. You will cut through the first hundred pages faster than Obama & ACORN have been cutting through our country with their socialist agendas. Are you a straight white conservative Christian or Jewish male American citizen who believes America is the greatest country in the history of the world? Do you value the Constitution, the Bill of Rights & the Declaration of Independence? Do you believe in capitalism, free market economy, equal opportunity (but NOT equal outcome), freedom, lower taxes, smaller gov't., personal privacy & not favoring one group of people over another? Then ACORN does NOT like you. Do you believe in socialism, gov't. intrusion into your life, affirmative action, quotas, set-asides & special rights for every designated 'victims groups'? Do you believe indoctrination of your children & grandchildren by academia, the left-wing media & entertainment to get them to believe that everything which used to be normal is now abnormal & vice versa is ok? Do you believe gov't. & ACORN should make you pay for everyone else's health care, 'free' housing, 'free' food, welfare & a hundred other programs for the 'poor' & the 'oppressed,' while you struggle to keep your family's heads above water? Do you believe this country should be torn down & replaced by some kind of socialist 'utopia,' where the 'elites' rule & you are simply a serf? Do you believe in 'social justice'? Do you believe in dictatorship? Then ACORN LOVES you. Do any of these names ring a bell?: Barack Obama, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Saul Alinsky, Wade Rathke, SDS, Weather Underground, NWRO, Lynne Stewart, DSA, CPC, CBC, Democrat Party, Bertha Lewis, Richard Cloward, Frances Fox Piven, Project Vote, Karl Marx, Black Panther Party, SEIU, ACLU, NEA, Jeremiah Wright, Noam Chomsky, Tom Hayden, Cornel West, NYT, Al Franken, Kweisi Mfume, Chaka Fattah, Antonio Villaraigosa, Maxine Waters, Paul Begala, Dennis Kucinich, Barney Frank, Pat Leahy, Dick Durbin, OFA, Roland Burris, John Kerry, Jerrold Nadler, Deval Patrick, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton & hundreds of other famous names. Would you like to know how all the above are interconnected? Are you interested in knowing where ACORN gets all their millions to fund their radical endeavors? Would it shock you to know some of the most prestigious Foundations & Banks, either give willingly to ACORN or are extorted & threatened to do so? Do you want to know the 370 groups ACORN controls? Do you want to know their entire history & how their radical tactics have allowed them to co-opt the Democrat Party & worm their way into every corner of the gov't. bureaucracy, including the Community Organizer In Chief? Would you like to find out how this criminal organization is the cause of violent riots, demonstrations, money laundering, building takeovers, extortion, racketeering, voter fraud, harassment, intimidation, tax cheating, bullying, assault, treating their own underpaid employees like garbage & all the other ways they use to get their way? Read this book thoroughly, educate yourselves & by the time 2012 rolls around, if you vote for the same guy who's in office now, shame on you.

At first I was disappointed when I noticed the 2011 pub date, but then I considered that whatever information Americans got would be helpful in exposing the infiltration and subversion of our government by this totalitarian segment of the virulent left. I look forward to an update in 2016, covering the 2nd half of Obama's regime, if the nation hasn't crashed and burned by then.
