Executive Order 9066 is a crime against our constitution. It allows for the indefinite detention of US citizens by the military inside the US - without a trial. It is the worst law ever handed down by a President and it was done with nary a peep of opposition. I'm positive that a huge percentage of the population is not even aware of it, partly because the establishment media didn't even bother covering it, and partly because most people don't give a sh*t about Japanese-Americans.
But it appeared for a while that maybe, just maybe, the Supreme Court would stand up and end the law. Then that bastard FDR packed the Court and they went ahead and upheld the law because they wanted FDR to have even more executive power, not less. This president has been a disaster for civil liberties. But if that's not bad enough, his New Deal sucks too.
We should have listened to Carter Glass, he of Glass-Steagal fame. Or even better, Champion of the Working People, John Lewis, who had the good sense to support Willkie four years ago. They knew the New Deal was a fraud. They knew it didn't go far enough. Bad enough we have a President on steriods that can shred the Constitution at will because we are at war...but his so-called economic social safety net? Feh. What good will it be after the war, when the military-industrial complex has its claws fully into the fabric of our nation?
So, I don't know about you, but I think it's high time we send a message to the guy in the White House that we demand a more progressive President. I know the guys on the other side are bad (seriously, Thomas Dewey? How can he possibly stand up to FDR's socio-economic policies, after giving a thumbs up to the New Deal? And Taft, that loony non-interventionist? We'd all be speaking German by now if he were in charge.) But it's time we sent a message, that we got you here and we can take you out.
We voted for change, dammit. And FDR is nothing but a disappointment.
