Franklin Delano Roosevelt:



“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”

― Franklin D. Roosevelt



“We have always known that heedless self interest was bad morals, we now know that it is bad economics.”

― Franklin Delano Roosevelt



“Repetition does not transform a lie into a truth.”

― Franklin D. Roosevelt



“A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned to walk forward.”

― Franklin D. Roosevelt

People whine that the poor in our nation have not enough. Most of the poor in our nation are rich compared to 70% of the world. Many of the poor in our nation is because we have made it where it is easier for them to sit back and collect then to get out and work. BTW, in my opinion FDR was a socialist....

Ah, Churchill, the great statesman. Who can forget his famous speeches -

"I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place."

"I cannot understand this squeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes"

"It is alarming and nauseating to see Mr Gandhi, a seditious Middle Temple lawyer, now posing as a fakir… striding half-naked up the steps of the Vice-regal Palace. Gandhi should not be released on the account of a mere threat of fasting...We should be rid of a bad man and an enemy of the Empire if he died."



Great men often say stupid things.

In the interest of full disclosure allow me to say that Christ was all for helping the poor, and the needy. He said so! No need to cite it, because it is all over the bible. His word also says, "You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours." Psalms 128:2 . "If any will not work, he shall not eat." 2 Thessalonians 3:10.

Now we know there is a distinct difference from being poor, and being the real poor! Shame, but many people think poor, therefore their expectations are to be in poverty! Mephibosheth son of Jonathan, who was the son of King Saul, ( King Of Israel ) was a man of royal blood, yet because of a lack of knowledge he abided in a place of poverty, and lived in LODEBAR, ( place of poverty) 2 Samuel 9:1-6. Another shame, I know personally, certain people I have described as shirkers above, and I'm kin to a few! There are many thousands, even millions like these in this country, ..is all I'm saying!

Socialism? Capitalism? Churchill regretted the passing of his preferred form of society: Feudalism. And he still clung doggedly to the end on its natural extension: Colonialism.

I agree, Oh Good Lord thank you for the Good News, ..and to the poor it means they don't have to be poor anymore. AMEN. Poverty is part of the curse of the law and we have been redeemed from that curse in Christ Jesus. I'M a living witness. Thanks you Lord!!! This stuff works! What's more I'm like the Apostle Paul, in that I'm not ashamed of it ....nor even to talk about It, Publicly!
