It seems what this country really needs is another FDR to run this country. President Roosevelt was for the working class people and against poverty.
FDR gave the American people Social Security in the 1930s. He also protected the workers from wealthy companies that tried to stop them from forming a union so they couldn't bargain for a decent wage. He also made a 12-hour work day into an 8-hour work day.
FDR died before he could present his second amendment to the American people. It took the leaders of Europe and Japan to give FDR's second amendment to their people, protecting them from losing their health care, pensions, jobs and homes, not like the countless of millions of Americans that are losing theirs today.
FDR stated: The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have enough; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.
Try telling this to today's politicians.
