His administration, with its overly zealous deregulation and government-phobia, began to unwind all the progress (high home ownership, stable-generous paying-union-backed jobs, a social safety net, and a living minimum wage); and this American ideal of economic justice was gradually realized over the vast majority of the country (1934 -1981)...
Enlightened people, especially America's highly educated young (16 - 28), understand that "Democratic Socialism"...is NOTHING MORE than thoroughly regulated Capitalism....for the common good of the WHOLE Country.
The founding contributors of the US Constitution framed "Democratic Socialism" into the very text of the document...that is why IT WORKED SO WELL...1934 -1981. Not very many educated people realize that the roots of American "Socialism"... reach way back to 1635; with the founding of America's first public school...and the very words: "COMMON" and "FOR THE GENERAL WELFARE" were woven into the framework of the US Constitution itself..
And we still have ...Public schools, Public libraries, Federal Highways, Firefighters, National Parks, Medicare, Social Security....etc.
My former US Congressman and current Senator and Presidential hopeful : Bernie Sanders, if nothing else, has given 'Democratic Socialism' a clean name after the Red Scare of the 1950s made it equal to 'Communism/Gulags/Stalin'.
Yes, thankfully many are educated enough to see through the demagoguery of fear...continually utilized by the radical right! In the 1950's....almost half of the US population (Women) were still only high school grads......
Obviously, there was some deliberate and concerted effort to down play the revealing facts regarding the historical documentation and a traceable US heritage of evolving "Democratic Socialism" in high school civics and universities of that era.
The goal was to suppress the knowledge of the INCREDIBLE SUCCESS of FDR's "Democratic Socialism" and its unparalleled three term wave, that was built on the former founding "Socialists" that prevailed since 1635 (the founding of America's first public school) and most of FDR's successors.
As a servant of Messiah Jesus, I certainly see the parallel in those famous words of the US document to that God given and gracious attitude of the first century Jewish converts to Messiah Jesus and the radical good it had on them and their community....as it is written:
Acts 2:44 And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; 45and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need.…
NOW HEAR THIS: Given the actual history of US Government 1934 -181...the so called "Conservatives"; cannot claim the faux patriotism of adhering to the US Constitution as THEIR divisive mantra for their intended and misguided "transformational" ends.
But, if you want to be a true radical, conservative, partisan...you are basically Anti-American...and Anti-US Constitution. It is therefore settled, that these adherents to that propaganda are brainwashed into merely a delusion of true "patriotism".
