We’ve been here before….

When I was five-years old President Franklin Roosevelt had been tinkering with socialist schemes for six years, inflicting permanent damage on these United States. As with the current destructive Obama administration, voters had enough of economic stagnation, high unemployment, failed “stimulus” give aways’, and buying votes with other people’s money.

Roosevelt’s “new deal” pledge from “prophets of a new order,” as he told the 1932 Democrat convention, recurred in the recently rejected “hope and change” policies of federal neo-subversives to the traditional American order of government. Roosevelt’s “crusade” was also finally rejected in 1938.

Then, as now, citizens were alarmed at increasingly bigger federal threats to their freedom. High taxes and government-induced scandals led to Democrat losses of 81 House and 8 Senate seats in Congress that year.

In Burt Folsom’s website below he reveals the political similarities between 1938 and 2014.

Folsom has some ideas about how our new legislators should act to counter the arrogant, unconcerned and uncompromising nature of another socialist U.S. president.
