    And now for the education that government schooling skipped.

    Franklin Roosevelt rejected the Constitution, accepted communism and revered the collective...the true American President, Ronald Reagan, venerated the Constitution, stood for the individual and despised Communism.


    1. It was under Franklin Roosevelt that America underwent a sea change, ending the guidance of the Founders, the Constitution, and the emphasis on capitalism in favor of socialism.
    It behooves those who wish to understand what happened to analyze what happened....and why.



    What Did He Know, and When Did He Know It?

    It was through Franklin Roosevelt's tireless efforts that communism found a home in the United States. They don't teach that in government school.
    Did FDR know he was providing a red carpet for communism, pun intended, or was he ignorant of the malevolence he was endorsing?



    3.Just the other day, I watched journalists asking a Republican presidential contender specific and detailed questions about geo-politics...trying to see what he knew, and how good he would be at applying same to predicting future situations.
    Apply same to FDR: was Roosevelt aware of the homicidal pathology of communism, and if so, shouldn't he have put off recognition of the Soviet empire until he perceived a change in those policies?


    Let's see FDR's geopolitical education:
    Here is his timeline of political education..

    Nov 8, 1910 Franklin Roosevelt is elected to the New York State Senate.

    In 1913, Franklin Roosevelt was appointed Assistant Secretary of the Navy under President Woodrow Wilson.

    1920 Franklin Roosevelt ran as the Democratic candidate for Vice-President, alongside James M. Cox. The ticket is defeated by Republicans Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge.

    Nov 6, 1928 Franklin Roosevelt is elected governor of New York.

    Following the very last brokered election that produced a winning candidate, Nov 8, 1932 Franklin Roosevelt defeated Herbert Hoover to become the 32nd President of the United States, receiving 57.4% of the popular vote.

    On November 16, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt ended almost 16 years of American non-recognition of the Soviet Union following a series of negotiations in Washington, D.C. with the Soviet Commissar for Foreign Affairs, Maxim Litvinov.



    So....here was a professional politician who spent a quarter century learning his craft, before he embraced the Soviet Union in what any astute observer of the world scene knew was a fraudulent agreement.

    He had that quarter century to consider, refine, and make judgments about the world, about right and wrong, good and evil.....
    It was his considered opinion that all previous Presidents and Secretaries of State were wrong in refusing to embrace the blood-drenched Bolsheviks.


    What Did He Know, and When Did He Know It?

    Ah, another reason why FDR is evil, he recognized the Sovjet Union....

    Funny, you think the British are evil too for recognizing the US as an independent state?

    I understand your undying devotion to the myth....indoctrination has a certain indelibility.

    And this explains why you

    a. can find nothing in the OP to disagree with.

    and

    b. will be unable to find anything in the rest of the thread what you can handle with any more than the usual Liberal "is not, is nootttttttt!" whine.

    And, of course, post #8 applies doubly to you.


    Why is it that you Liberals/socialists can never author a substantive post?


    Could be this?
    "Let me give you a little tip: if you want liberalism to continue in this country, you have to realize that liberal students are being let down by their professors! They have liberal school teachers, and read the liberal press! Because of this weak preparation, they are unable to argue, to think beyond the first knee-jerk impulse. They can’t put together a logical thought. Now, compare that to a college Republican…"
