Then Hoover, though somewhat reluctant, began to implement the New Deal before FDR ever got in there. It was under FDR though, fully under the control of the Establishment, and fully committed to destroying America's foundation, that the Establishment was able to rewrite the Constitution and transform America from a Republic to a Democracy.

    Every President since FDR has been an Establishment puppet. The only one to stand up to them at all was JFK, and he paid for that with his life.

    The 20th century is a sad tale of deception, takeover, and decline for the United States of America. Most Americans would disagree with that, but then again most Americans have been indoctrinated in government schools who teach a curriculum fashioned by the Establishment - it is no wonder most Americans haven't the foggiest notion about the principles of freedom and the importance of our founding.
    Kind of going OT here but based on what you said, why in the hell would the money trust have funded Teddy Roosevelt, the preeminent destroyer of monopolies.

    Years ago when I used to frequent the campus of West Point, I came across the monument of Margaret Corbin, someone my grandmother (a mucky muck with the DAR) told me about many times as the only woman to fight alongside the men in battle during the war of independence.

    Margaret (née Cochran) Corbin (November 12, 1751 – January 16, 1800) was a woman who fought in the American Revolutionary War.[1] On November 16, 1776, she and her husband, John Corbin, both from Philadelphia, along with some 600 American soldiers, were defending Fort Washington in northern Manhattan from 4,000 attacking Hessian troops under British command. John and Margaret crewed one of two cannons the defenders possessed. When her husband fell, Margaret took his place at his cannon and continued firing until she, herself, was seriously wounded. She later became the first woman in U.S. history to receive a pension from Congress for military service.

    An American "pioneer" goes into the "wilderness" and says, "my God..look at all of this untouched land!" and proceeds to ignore the nice pathways and trails established by Native American traders that he's walking on.

    The textbooks may not be willing to say it, but a lot of people kind of reference those tropes. Anytime they conflate American emigration westward with development or taming of the west it's basically an old adage of Frederick Jackson Turner and those like him who had the gift of ignoring Native Americans by turning off their mental light switches. Americans moving West: light switch turns on. Americans walking in front of vast infrastructure developed over centuries of geopolitical conflict and trade: light switch turns off.

    I think Margaret Chase Smith (First woman to serve in both houses of Congress and first woman to be placed in nomination for the presidency at a major party convention) should be put on the $10 bill.

    Not knocking your suggestions or reasons, I'd bet no woman representing a modern political party will make the cut considering how polarized the country is at the moment.

    That may be true. Another woman that should be considered: the first American woman in space: Sally Ride. http://www.biography.com/people/sally-ride-9458284

    I'm just kind of a fan of Harriet Tubman. To be a woman in that era plus being black in that era and bucking the system they way she did... quintessentially American to be on the right side of history thumbing her nose at America itself only to be proven right by history. She went against America and ended up having America change to be more like her.

    Because Roosevelt would steal votes from Taft... it's that simple.

    Morgan was the principle backer of Roosevelt - the whole time his intent, and the intent of his Wall Street buddies, was to make sure their puppet (Wilson) would win.

    Once Wilson was elected, he did everything they wanted - the two most important things being The Federal Reserve Act, formerly known as the Aldrich Act (Remember Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller?? Aldrich was his grandfather), and his committed entrance into WW I.

    WW I provided the Establishment the cover they needed to overthrow Czar Nicholas and establishment a communist (antithesis) foothold in Russia.

    P.S. It is worth noting that Wilson wrote after he left office, "... I have unwittingly ruined my country" - he should have thought of that before he agreed to do the bidding of those monsters.

    No woman has ever really accomplished anything noteworthy in the history of this country.... Hmm. Well, Lincoln's mother gave birth to Lincoln. That's noteworthy. Maybe we should put her mug on the $5 bill.
