Good old FDR and the New Deal Commerce Clause. The Tenth Amendment has barely had a pulse since then.

Great find.

Spot On!

Now, when will those Schools release “President Obama’s”, or Barry Obama’s files?
Did He ask for, or did the Schools grant him preference as a Foreign Student?

The early National Review often talked about Tugwell, who was still around in those days.

This cartoon truly paints the picture that we never really read about in the history books....that there was a strong public sentiment and outcry against all of the Democrat spending!

Imagine how conservatives must have suffered through the Roosevelt years.

What is frightening is that this is an ongoing and never - ending fight against liberals, leftists, and nonproducers.

Keep your flak jacket on, it is the war that will never end!

The video is a description of the 5 supposed forms of government, from 100% government control (Communism, facism, totalitarianism etc) to 0% government (anarchy) it obliteraties all forms of government as only temporary and futile except for 2, olgiarchy and republic. It does this in a clear concise manner, which effectively shows even a grade schooler about them. It then, in the last few moments, explains Rome, its beginning as a republic, and its morph into a democracy. The parallels are well put, and clearly where this country is today. It is an excellent way to spread the word to those who have never been taught proper history, and that is alot of people since they have been re writing it for so long now.

I have been posting this sucker all over all day, and sometimes I forget that some are stuck at work, so I have included the above basic description of the video, however it does not do the video justice. I beg, implore and urge all to view it who have not. THIS is the reason we are so angry. Taxes are a symptom, losing our republic is the disease!!!!!

FYI:

THE ROOSEVELT MYTH by John T. Flynn from years ago remains a key source about this era.

As Harry "The Hop" Hopkins said, "Tax, Tax, Spend, Spend, Elect, Elect!"

dim-0-crats know how to exercise political power, and having gotten it back now, they will use it no "ifs, ands, or buts" or even "is is".

Consider the refrain: create five million new jobs, to create or save three million jobs, to now save 0.5 million jobs ... with no comment about those shifts. Perhaps the good people of Ohio, California, ..., etc., missed those changes.

This is what communists want to do, spend the government into bankruptcy and then blame capitalists. Thus, can we conclude the government in the US is currently communist?

And isn’t the CNN anchor also following the same ideal shown in the cartoon when she tries to enforce how the “Land of Lincoln” will get $50 Billion dollars for Illinois? Spend Spend Spend...oh yeah, and protesting against this spending spree “isn’t family viewing”.

Bottom line, this fight is not new. Pick sides folks.

Some of us knew this from birth.

The “dims” have always been socialists.
And when they win, they become communists/fascists/marxists/nazis.
But some of those who know this, still vote in such a way as to get the traitors in. :-\

Yes, it is very noticeable that the machinations of of the current administration are causing a revival of historical interest in the New Deal because of the similarities.

The only character in the cartoon I'm completely unfamiliar with is "Richberg." Strange that FDR himself is not depicted.

Fitting that the cartoon was done by the Chicago Tribune, which, under the McCormack family, was well-known to be a leading voice of conservatism up until the 70s when it changed ownership. A major difference between that period and today is that many leading MSM organs (primarily newspapers at the time) were anti-statist then, which is clearly not the case currently.

From the Chicago Tribune to boot. Irony.

No irony at all that it was from the Chicago Tribune. Back then, under the ownership of the McCormack family, it was unmistakably a conservative publication. It veered left only after it was sold some time in the 1970s or thereabouts.

Both parties have been corrupt since the get go. Which is one of the reasons I’m not sending money to the RNC any more. I will judge the candidate and send the money directly to their campaign. Not to say that won’t benefit the other, but we need to not let an oligarchy pick our candidates. As long as we still have the vote (which it may be too late for considering ACORN now has an in with our current government)we need to proactively use it to get the right candidates.

Let's hope oBOWma is less successful at socializing America than FDR, although FDR's most notorious and enduring accomplishment was Social Security. We will be lucky to get though this 180 degree left turn with only one long lasting millstone around our necks. The most refeshing point with the 1934 political cartoon is that the socialists do not historically succeed or endure here in America.

Very impressed with the history and civics lesson video. Clearly explains governments.

Knowing that history often does repeat itself and human nature really does not appreciably change, I must research to see how long the Roman Republic lasted.

Guess that is why the DEAMONcrats have done their best to drop history curricula from schools.

I don't know this for a fact, but I suppose the New Deal is still tought but grossly overglorified today in the public schools. Heck, Franklin D. Roosevelt is almost always rated among the top five US presidents in any survey of historians.

25 percent unemployment

In all fairness, that was the figure at about the time Roosevelt took office. It didn't get all that much better for the next seven years, though.

Very apt cartoon in # 68.

Roosevelt called the Constitution a document for the horse and buggy era (or something similar) when he railed against the SCOTUS' declaring a few New Deal laws unconstitutional. But after several elderly conservative judges were encouraged to retire and he appointed their replacements, the SCOTUS pretty much rubber-stamped the constitutionality of every law that was passed and signed.

Thanks justiceseeker93. This would be an appropriate place to link to the topics about how Obama et al have claimed that the New Deal didn’t spend enough. But I want to get to bed soon. :’)
