2. Thanks so much for this thread and the FDR quote, a favorite one. Should be spread far and wide.

Libertarians need to hear:

Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.

~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

Democrats need to hear:


Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.

~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

More quotes by FDR that have proven true and apply to our times:

It's been said history goes in cycles and we are reliving the 1930s. The same voices and forces are arrayed on one level, only the labels are changed. What path will we choose, democracy or fascism?
