Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Died for us
Franklin Delano Roosevelt died for us (literally). Even the leading figures in the opposition of the time would likely agree with that. That is patriotism as I understand it. I admit, in 1980, I caught the Reagan magic bug and ran with it for a little while. But I remember when I got my tax break, I was working as a retail manager at the time and thought everyone and everybody was getting a Free Ride. But I got to thinking $6.00 a week to abandon the idea that government can effect a positive change in our lives, I felt soiled and cheapened. So, there it is, never again.
