    Famous FDR quotes:

    "I don't mind telling you in confidence that I am keeping in fairly close touch with that admirable Italian Gentlemen" (Of course, he was referring to Mussilini)

    "if we are to go forward, we must move as a trained and loyal army (we are not longer free people but soldiers who follow orders without question) willing to sacrifice for the good of a common discipline. We are, I know, ready and willing to submit our lives and property for such discipline, because it makes possible a leadership that aims at the greater good (Give up all our freedoms so he can tell us what to do). I assume unhesingtately the leadership of this great army (aka dictator) of our people dedicated to a disciplined attack upon our common problems"

    "I shall not evade the clear course of duty that will then confront me. (when people didn't want to go along with him) I shall ask the congress for one remaining instrument to meet the crisis--broad executive power (aka dictatorship) to wage war against the emergency, as great as the power that would be given to me if we were in fact invaded by foreign foe"

    ...with this all of his followers cheered the new dictatorship as they did in Italy. Welcome to America 1933.

    Roosevelt was really hated by my grandparents and most of their local friends. They all said he was a communist, in disguise of course. The point is, FDR had his share of detractors in his time as well as advocates.

    Not bad quotes at all. It is no wonder that FDR was such a fine leader

    What is amazing is the wild interpretations provided by ihopehefails. Is this guy that seriously out of touch?

    It's funny because when I put the first quote in google, the only thing that showed up was ihope's post on USMB. So I'm calling bullshit or want a link.

    The second quote is from FDR's "Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself" speech in which he is talking about the economy. The way you have the quote is way off. I'm calling bullshit again.

    The second quote in full:

    His second quote was also referring to the economy.

    And that last quote is also from his "Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself" speech.

    And you butchered the third quote intentionally as well:

    Fucking hack, get the fuck off this board.
