LEE PARKER: Past presidents’ achievements

To the editor,

Republican President Theodore Roosevelt was President in 1901, the gap between the rich and poor widened. He was a Progressive that supported the rights of workers.

Republican President Thomas Jefferson composed the words in our Declaration of Independence, “all men are created equal.” What he really meant to say was, “all white men are created equal, I mean, here’s a man that never freed Sally Hemings, the slave with whom he sired several children!”

In 1933 Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt was innaugrated as President. The banking system on the verge of collapse, unemployment approaching 25%, wages plummeted, reduced consumer purchasing power, reduced demands for goods, factories and businesses closed, workers laid off,etc. He believed in the Govt. supplying the basic needs of it’s citizens. People were starving from natural disasters and drought in the plains and the southwest. Social Security began under this President.

Under President Reagan he argued that “Government is the problem,” he cut spending on domestic programs and increased spending on the military and the national debt tripled, and the Savings and Loan bailout by us, “we the people.”

Democrat President Lyndon Johnson started Medicare/Medicade, 1964 Voting Rights Act, Fair housing Act of 1968, 1964 Civil Rights Act.

George W. Started 2 wars, lied about Iraq responsible for 911/WMD’s, 10 year tax break for the wealthy while us tax payers bailed out the wallstreet banksters, Privatize the profits, socialize the losses, that’s their motto!

President Obama stepped in to save the auto industry,out of Iraq, Bin Laden eliminated, refinancing of homes under forecloser, new banking regulations, pell grants for college students, Healthcare for all,etc.

Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt referred to the Republicans as, “Economic Royalists, over privileged.” Franklin also said, “ They are united in their hatred towards me, and i welcome their hatred, and they met their match.” The’re united in their hatred towards Barak also!
