lol, for a good laugh go there...it's like we completely took it over.
Got posted on every Faux and CNN page I could find.
Of course I included the link
he will talk about it.
I just send a copy to Jerry Doyle..
Let's send it to Hannity..LMAO
If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...
this should be a top page post. Please bump guy. Good idea to send it to jerry.
LMAO.. I cant believe they keep coming up with this...LMAO...
I'm still trying to learn about American History and don't know much about FDR??? Anyone willing to help me understand????
P.S. R.P. said his favourite president was Grover Cleveland a Democrat... hope Gingrich is not losing his battle for supporting a Dem... although I don't believe that's the case...
Another example of a 19th century Democrat is Samuel Tilden who ran for president in 1876 (winning the popular, but losing the Electoral College).
Here's a brief article on him and his views. You will see the difference between a Democrat in those days with today.
Or peruse through William Leggett's writings during Jackson's presidency. You'll see a much different outlook, again.

I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality. - John Randolph of Roanoke
that sent thousands of Japanese-Americans to concentration camps for the "crime" of being Japanese-American.
That's the kind of President that Newt believes is the greatest President of the 20th century.
You have to remember that the Democrats in the 19th century, generally, were classical liberals. They believed in limited government, free markets, free trade, low taxes, non-interventionist foreign policy, and the gold standard. It wasn't until the turn of the 20th century the term "liberal" was hijacked by social-democrats, where, today, liberal and hence democrat is more inclined to an expansive government. Wilson was the lynchpin.
FDR was just the continuation of the progressive movement, though progressive didn't necessarily mean Democrat; there were progressives in the Republican party in the early 20th century. FDR was totally removed from the Jeffersonian/Jacksonian libertarianism of the old-Democrats. It's funny because I still hear Democrats say "we are the party of Jefferson." And yes, this is correct in its historic sense; philosophically, though, they are far removed from the Democrats of the 19th century. I'm, of course, generalizing here, but a Democrat in, say, 1875, would have been for free markets, whereas today that is not the case.
Here's an article that talks about the Gold Democrats in the late 19th century, the last attempt to hold on to the limited government philosophy of Jefferson/Jackson. It failed, as history shows, but it talks about the Democrats of the 19th century.
"Roosevelt stands for the national government as we know it today: a vast, unfathomable bureaucratic apparatus that recognizes no limits whatsoever to its power, either at home or abroad. Internationally, it gives every evidence of intending to run the whole world, of extending its hegemony — now that the Soviet Union is no more — to every corner of the globe."
FDR is the biggest government president. He extended the government in all aspects. He started social security, funded all kinds of projects, and confiscated gold from Americans.
For all conservative, he is the worst president. Listen to all conservative Radio shows you will see what it means when you say FDR.
Grover Cleveland is very different. To understand the difference watch this:
He will love it. Maybe Savage, too.
GB the link.
Told he might can use it somehow.
he reply already?
With such conviction and bravado Newt. Democrats are put to shame with these remarks. lmao
Newt is obviously in the wrong party and should be immediately called out on it by those all in the MSM.
This is MAJOR !!!
If Conservatives dismiss this they deserve what they get.
This has to be sent far and wide and everywhere in between !!
this is very bizarre. It seems that FDR is hero. He is very passionate about him. This has to be made public. I think Ron Paul should pay to put this video on air.
by Antony Sutton:
Read it and weep. FDR was a Wall Streeter par excellence, racking up over a dozen directorships. He profited off of the German hyperinflation, and I've only gotten to chapter 3.
ask him about this and see how he would lie about it.
Hannity and Rush who keep bashing FDR.
This should go viral. I think RP campaign should have an ad with this video only. This will kill him. sometimes he is tedy Roosevelt, sometimes FDR, and finally Reagan. I'm not sure what this guy is.

If you too were convinced by revisionist history and propagandist media that FDR was a great president and don't understand why FDR was so bad for America I suggest you read "New deal or raw deal? [how FDR's economic legacy has damaged America]" by Burton Folsom Jr. It is also available as an audio book.
In it you can read how the great depression lasted much longer than it could have lasted. If Ron Paul is not elected it is likely that the next depression will dwarf what was experienced in the past.
Newt, a true progressive Conservative.
