Man, I've been watching the ACORN story on Glenn Beck this week and it's really eye opening. I've known for a while that something was wrong with that organization but I had no idea how twisted the whole thing is. Today I'm just going to go over a Preamble from Acorns own website. This can found at

(From this point forward the red text represents the ACORN Preamble the black text my comments)

We stand for a People's Platform, as old as our country,(ACORN was founded in 1970) and as young as our dreams. We come before our nation, not to petition with hat in hand,(Besides the money they receive from tax dollars they have a donation link right on their home page) but to rise as one people and demand.
We have waited and watched. We have hoped and helped. We have sweated and suffered. We have often believed. We have frequently followed.
But we have nothing to show for the work of our hand, the tax of our labor. Our patience has been abused; our experience misused. Our silence has been seen as support.(If Acorn is silent I would hate to see what happens when they make noise) Our struggle has been ignored.
Enough is enough. We will wait no longer for the crumbs at America's door. We will not be meek, but mighty. We will not starve on past promises, but feast on future dreams.

No longer waiting for crumbs, no longer implies that they have waited for the crumbs but are now no longer satisfied with what's left over they now want more. It sounds to me like they are admitting to the desire to use force in order to feast with someone Else's wealth.
We are an uncommon people. We are the majority, forged from all minorities.

We are the masses of many, not the forces of few. We will continue our fight until the American way is just one way, until we have shared the wealth, until we have won our freedom.
So they intend to gather their strength joined from the minorities of the Country in order to force the wealth being shared. Spreading the wealth around sounds familiar doesn't it? Does this sound like democracy to you?
This is not a simple vision, but a detailed plan.
Our plan is to build an American reality from the American rhetoric(American Rhetoric! What do they mean? "Holding truth to be self-evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator, with certain unalienable rights, like Life Liberty and the pursuit of happiness") , to deliver a piece of the present and the fruits of the future to every man, to every woman, to every family.
We demand our birthright: the chance to be rich, the right to be free.

(No one said they can't be rich, Work for it! Be free and don't rely on others for your direction. That's what freedom means, freedom is not being on welfare, freedom is not being on section 8, freedom is not relying on food stamps. These programs help people yes, but they do not create freedom. Being Rich is not the same as being free, many so-called rich people have debt and mortgages and this is just as much a lack of freedom as a person on Section 8 who gets food stamps. You must aspire to be self sufficient in order to be truly free.)
Our riches shall be the blooming of our communities, the bounty of a sure livelihood, the beauty of homes for our families with sickness driven from the door, the benefit of our taxes rather than their burden, (The benefit of taxes and not their burden, wait some need to pay taxes in order for all to benefit. If no one pays no one benefits. All who pay are burdened, so this is a paradox is it not. You can't have one without the other. what they mean I think is that they wish to benefit without the burden, they will leave the burden to those so-called rich people and the corporations who should only exist to make ACORN happy.)and the best of our energy, land, and natural resources for all people.
Our freedom is the force of democracy, not the farce of federal fat and personal profit.(Again, you need personal profit in order to be truly free.) In our freedom, only the people shall rule. Corporations shall have their role; producing jobs, providing products, paying taxes. No more, no less. They shall obey our wishes, respond to our needs, serve our communities. Our country shall be the citizens' wealth and our wealth shall build our country.
Government shall have its role:

(So they are directly saying Corporations should follow ACORN's demands and Government will lead. They are also saying Corporations should not be allowed to make a profit. "No more no less" How would you take this?)
public servant to our good, fast follower to our sure steps. No more, no less. Our government shall shout with the public voice and no longer to a private whisper. (The government has been bowing to large lobbyists for a long time now, what the heck do they mean private whisper?) In our government, the common concerns shall be the collective cause.
We represent a people's platform, not a politician's promise.(Well actually Obama got elected because of people like ACORN, and he did on nothing more than promises!)
We demand the changes outlined in our platform and plan. We will work to win. We will have our birthright. (What is your birthright?) We will live in richness and freedom.(with the burden of taxes, benefiting from those who pay) We will live in one country as one people

(Do I have to stay? Can I move while I'm still allowed?)
