    yes, nobody's perfect. Roosevelt rushed the gate on austerity and flatlined the recovery efforts back then. And - as I noted - the problem with his choice of Teddy over Franklin reveals the desire to run as far away from the Democratic Party's roots as he could.  The fact that 2012 looks more like 1935 than 1908, makes it all the more disturbing.

    Thanks again. Your words are sweet. You are most definitely not alone. Making you feel alone if you don't 'go along' with the herd is a central tactic for this election.  Stand your ground and make your own choice.  Millions of people feel the same way we do, whether they can articulate it in words that we recognize as our own, or whether they agree with our recipe for triage and renewal.

    And don't be shy about speaking your mind! Whether they like it or not, the clowns who run this party need to hear what we say, because millions of victims of this fraud-produced economic crisis feel the same way, they just won't bother telling the clowns before walking away.

    Be well!
