The propaganda bubble that the FDR legacy rests on is awesome. FDR was elected in 1932 and under his ineffective "leadership" the relatively mild recession turned into a freaking bodies in the ditch soup line depression for his next two terms. FDR appointed a former KKK member to the supreme court and the bigot paid him back with a judicial decision that justified incarcerating American citizens and confiscating their property without due process. The FDR administration's racist view of the Japanese led to one of the most notorious examples of negligence in American history when the Japanese killed 3,000 Americans in the Pearl Harbor attack. Thanks to the unrelenting propaganda of the fawning media the Pearl Harbor attack was viewed as some sort of victory. Democrats finally wheeled a virtual corpse around to campaign for his 4th term and true to form the media pretended that FDR was healthy while he was practically comatose due to several strokes. The DNC knew it and dumped the sitting V.P. while he was on vacation and hired a successor. FDR lasted about three months into his 4th term and his medical records disappeared. Almost everything we were taught about the FDR years was political propaganda.

You were doing fine until you characterized the Great Depression as a "mild recession"
I stopped reading after that

One thing I find most interesting is the way modern-day Democrats give constitutional weight to FDR's "Four Freedoms". While instrumental at the time in expressing viable American sentiments, it seems like nothing more today than an attempt to staple a little socialism onto the document without going through the amendment process.

11-Executive Order No. 9066

The President

Executive Order

Authorizing the Secretary of War to Prescribe Military Areas

Whereas the successful prosecution of the war requires every possible protection against espionage and against sabotage to national-defense material, national-defense premises, and national-defense utilities as defined in Section 4, Act of April 20, 1918, 40 Stat. 533, as amended by the Act of November 30, 1940, 54 Stat. 1220, and the Act of August 21, 1941, 55 Stat. 655 (U.S.C., Title 50, Sec. 104);

Now, therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me as President of the United States, and Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, I hereby authorize and direct the Secretary of War, and the Military Commanders whom he may from time to time designate, whenever he or any designated Commander deems such action necessary or desirable, to prescribe military areas in such places and of such extent as he or the appropriate Military Commander may determine, from which any or all persons may be excluded, and with respect to which, the right of any person to enter, remain in, or leave shall be subject to whatever restrictions the Secretary of War or the appropriate Military Commander may impose in his discretion. The Secretary of War is hereby authorized to provide for residents of any such area who are excluded therefrom, such transportation, food, shelter, and other accommodations as may be necessary, in the judgment of the Secretary of War or the said Military Commander, and until other arrangements are made, to accomplish the purpose of this order. The designation of military areas in any region or locality shall supersede designations of prohibited and restricted areas by the Attorney General under the Proclamations of December 7 and 8, 1941, and shall supersede the responsibility and authority of the Attorney General under the said Proclamations in respect of such prohibited and restricted areas.

I hereby further authorize and direct the Secretary of War and the said Military Commanders to take such other steps as he or the appropriate Military Commander may deem advisable to enforce compliance with the restrictions applicable to each Military area hereinabove authorized to be designated, including the use of Federal troops and other Federal Agencies, with authority to accept assistance of state and local agencies.

I hereby further authorize and direct all Executive Departments, independent establishments and other Federal Agencies, to assist the Secretary of War or the said Military Commanders in carrying out this Executive Order, including the furnishing of medical aid, hospitalization, food, clothing, transportation, use of land, shelter, and other supplies, equipment, utilities, facilities, and services.

This order shall not be construed as modifying or limiting in any way the authority heretofore granted under Executive Order No. 8972, dated December 12, 1941, nor shall it be construed as limiting or modifying the duty and responsibility of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with respect to the investigation of alleged acts of sabotage or the duty and responsibility of the Attorney General and the Department of Justice under the Proclamations of December 7 and 8, 1941, prescribing regulations for the conduct and control of alien enemies, except as such duty and responsibility is superseded by the designation of military areas hereunder.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

The White House,

February 19, 1942.
