Okay, we already know the GOP doesn’t care about women, the young, minorities, or LGBT people. Now they’re telling the elderly they’re acting ‘entitled?’

Explaining is not the answer. Moral middle class policies, the ones being attempted by the President with pressure from the grassroots, are.

‘Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those others that have been tried.’ – Winston Churchill
These are the quotes that EVERY liberal should know about.
Many Americans today tend to take the past for granted, and with that, we also tend to take the words of past leaders for granted. We forget what they told us, and as a result we lose our identity, we lose the values that make us who we are. Below is a list of quotes spoken by American leaders, heroes, journalists, and others.

Like with Obama now, Republicans did everything they could to stop FDR.
The Occupy Wall Street protesters have been standing against the big banks for a few months now. They are protesting the greed, irresponsibility, and fraud that banks like Bank of America, Citigroup, and JPMorgan Chase commit on a daily basis. The big banks of Wall Street caused an economic collapse.

It has often been said that FDR saved capitalism from itself.

Good news continues to mount on the economy. Third quarter profits were up 16% from last year’s third quarter numbers and the stock market is having its best run in God knows when. Yep, things are really looking bleak these days, for the doomsayers, that is.
