Benjamin Franklin, regarding the new Republic opined: “When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.” His reference was to individual voters or voting blocs using government to enrich themselves directly. Given the limited powers of the then fledgling Federal Government, he did not envision the “money go round” that permeates and too frequently dominates Washington DC.

“Liberals” and their snarky hypocritical ilk controlled the agenda in DC for most years after Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s war.

I have often wondered what the world would be like today and since, if FDR and the USA had not got into WWII. If Germany had taken all of Europe and destroyed maybe the Soviet Union. If Japan had taken most of the east. If the USA was just an Island all alone in the world. At some point I suspect that Germany would have grown large enough to come after us here.

It boggles the mind to really wonder just what the world would have been like.

Yep. My Daddy would have had to fought the Germans over here on our soil if he hadn’t fought them through Sicily, Italy and into Germany. My Daddy and thousands like him.
