When Democrat hero FDR confiscated citizens' gold -- at the point of a gun

By Nick Sorrentino

FDR, the man who studied Mussolini, who birthed the current intrusive state, who started the drug war in earnest, who put Japanese Americans into concentration camps, who extended the Depression years longer than it needed to be and thereby contributed to the genesis of the Second World War, who tried to pack the Supreme Court, who gave away half of Europe to the Soviets at Yalta, and who confiscated the gold – the real wealth – of the American people.

What a guy. And he still has his face on the dime.

There is a reason why my grandmother, a good New York City Irish catholic despised the man. She thought Roosevelt was a hair’s breadth short of being a dictator.

She was probably being nice.

He aspired to a lifetime presidency unfettered by Constitutional constraints. (In a sense, he achieved his dream.) And he had Republican support:

"If this nation ever needed a Mussolini, it needs one now." – David Reed, Republican U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania.

“Even the iron hand of a national dictator is preferable to a paralytic stroke.” – Alf Landon, Republican Governor of Kansas and 1936 GOP nominee for President.

Think about that over your Cheerios.

Thanks for the quotes - suddenly I'm not hungry anymore. Folks also need to remember it was powerful Senator Nelson Aldridge (R-RI) that cleared the way for the banking cabal at Jekyll Island. When Republicans go bad, they go filthy.
