11. Yeah, I have a theory that the old rightwingers like prescott

wanted to make damn sure another New Deal would never happen again.

The most ostensible example of their determination to thwart another FDR-style presidency is the GOP-led limit on presidential terms. It's not proven conclusively, but there are indications that Prescott may have been involved in some way in the so-called "business plot" to stage a coup against FDR and install Smedley Butler as their strongman. They didn't count on Butler, a war hero, exposing the plot.

I believe all the shadowy things that went on behind the alphabet soup of assassinations in the '60s (JFK, RFK, MLK) is the dark legacy of that determination and extends into Nixon's dirty deeds and later October Surprise and beyond.
