    The Founding Fathers themselves took measures which increased the strength of the national government. The Federalist Party was built on the very idea of a strong national government. Even Thomas Jefferson, who was strongly opposed to the idea of a strong national government, took measures while president which were thought of as unconstitutional at the time and were also contradictory to his beliefs of limited government (see: Louisiana Purchase). Oh, and John Adams tried the very same court packing scheme that FDR did.

    Not surprising that a conservative thinks that the president elected to the most consecutive terms in office would be the worst. They don't like democracy to function well.
    Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?
    - Abraham Lincoln

    Before the war is ended, the war party assumes the divine right to denounce and silence all opposition to war as unpatriotic and cowardly.
    - Robert M. LaFollette, Wisconsin Governor and U.S. Senator

    God, how patient are Thy poor! These corporations and masters of manipulation in finance heaping up great fortunes by a system of legalized extortion,
    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!
    - Robert M. LaFollette, Wisconsin Governor and U.S. Senator

    Because the FDA is evil, I ordered extra salmonella once at a restaurant and the FDA evidently has things things called "standards" that they enforce that wouldn't provide me with my desired form of food poisoning.

    FDR made the depression worse.

    He created internment camps for Japanese Americans.

    But the worst thing of all, is he doomed our future. We will eventually go belly up, and he will be the primary cause. His fundamental shift in what the federal government has the power do to is directly tied to the lobbyist business we have today, is the cause of the 15 trillion dollar debt, our changed view on foreign policy, and the bitter divide we see in political discussion today.

    worst.president.ever.
