FDR’s prophetic warning

Read what Franklin Roosevelt said of the Republicans in 1936:

‘Let me warn you, and let me warn the nation, against the smooth evasion that says: ‘of course we believe these things. we believe in social security, we believe in work for the unemployed, we believe in saving homes. Cross our hearts and hope to die, we believe in all these things. But we do not like the way the present administration is doing them. Just turn them over to us. We will do all of them, we will do more of them, we will do them better, and most important of all, the doing of them will not cost anybody anything’.

Does it sound familiar?
