Rachel Maddow:
"In America Today, Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower Would Be Bernie Sanders in the U.S. Senate
The huge ever rapid shift rightward makes Dwight Eisenhower and Richard Nixon look like lefty radicals today".

Can anyone remember THIS Democratic Party?
"In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for allóregardless of station, race, or creed.

Among these are:

*The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;

*The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;

*The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;

*The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;

*The right of every family to a decent home;

*The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;

*The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;

*The right to a good education.

All of these rights spell security. And after this war is won we must be prepared to move forward, in the implementation of these rights, to new goals of human happiness and well-being.

America's own rightful place in the world depends in large part upon how fully these and similar rights have been carried into practice for all our citizens." --FDR, Economic Bill of Rights


Please note that FDR listed the above as basic Human Rights,
to be protected by our government of The People,
and NOT Commodities to be sold to Americans by For Profit Private Corporations.

Not so long ago, if you voted FOR The Democrats,
you voted FOR the above Values.
Sadly, that is no longer true.

I miss THAT Democratic party.



You will know them by their WORKS,
not by their excuses.
Solidarity99!
