    I have no doubt that if FDR could come back today and be in Wisconsin he would be right with those state workers on the street flashing that big smile with a cigarette holder in his clenched teeth and his dog Fala in his lap.
    Of course that is what you believe because you cannot prove it but don't buy his actual written words. How typical.

    No, they are pissed because those wages come out of their taxes and they have no say about it.
    Why can't some people understand that there is a limit to what states can afford to pay?

    And accusing somebody of driving down the autobahn is also a German nazi reference? Get over yourself man.

    You are out of control and need to take a break. Are you even thinking before posting. It certainly doesn't appear so if you can equate a "German driving down an autobahn" to accusing some of being in "goose step".

    the problem here Conservative is that you judge others by what you yourself describe as your own political experience. You proudly trumpet how your own views have not changed but the Democratic Party... ooooppps --- you call it the Democrat Party - don't you.....(as if that Limbaughism is not a complete giveaway to the fraud) left you. You stood still while the dems left you behind and you found yourself as Republican.

    You see sir, many people tend to change a bit - sometimes alot - and evolve with the times. That was the type of person FDR was and there is tons of evidence of it in the excellent series of books about him and the New Deal by Arthur Schlesinger. You should read them. Its all in there and will give you all the proof you need that FDR changed his views to the demands of the times and the situation. He was far from the type of individual that you yourself proudly proclaim to be.

    There are militarizes that still goose step, but I guess that makes them Nazis right?
