Dr. Lance Walnau's book “God’s Chaos Candidate” written while the election was going on, is the best book I have read on the election. Among many solid ideas as well as revelations, he writes:
“After the election losses in 2000… a handful of smart and extremely wealthy liberals…came together (they called themselves the ‘Thunder Road Group’) ..and did a 360 degree assessment of the strengths of the conservative movement. Where they saw strength they created a counter strategy to call into existence new single issue organizations that would target each of these areas and break them down.”
“In essence, they laid siege works against the conservative movement’s greatest strengths. Where no Leftist organization existed to take on the task, they created one. When campaign finance was reformed a loophole was found. This loophole allowed for the creation of organizations called 527’s—associations organized for the purpose of influencing an issue and capable of receiving unlimited funds!
They need a think tank, so they created Center for American Progress.
They needed a media operation for all the 527s, so they created the Media Fund and Media Matters.
They needed to dig up dirt in opposition research, so they created Citizens
for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).
They needed to organize Hollywood and hold concerts to get out the vote,
so they created America Votes.
They needed a vast funding source, so with George Soros’ help .they created the Open Society and Democracy Alliance.
They needed a social technology movement, so they drafted MoveOn.org.”
“Once their strategy was in place, they called together a private audience with 100 leaders who could each contribute 1 million dollars to the new strategy. With 100 million dollars they began to remake America!” In doing so, they have created the most powerful political coalition in history.
