Hugo Chavez Borrows Game Plan From FDR

Chavez seeks power to rule by decree for 1 year

FDR convinced the American people and congress that he should have the power to rule by decree. Here is what the president had to say on the subject during his inauguration March 4th, 1933.

"But in the event that the Congress shall fail to take one of these two courses, and in the event that the national emergency is still critical, I shall not evade the clear course of duty that will then confront me. I shall ask the Congress for the one remaining instrument to meet the crisis—broad Executive power to wage a war against the emergency, as great as the power that would be given to me if we were in fact invaded by a foreign foe."

The Congress granted FDR the power he spoke of on March 9th, 1933Allowing a president to rule by decree makes that president a dictator.   
The first thing FDR did with his unbridled power was to close the banks and confiscate the peoples goldAfter that FDR seized control of all means of production, communications, and national resources.  Government also instituted the issuance of license for many activities here to fore no license was required.  FDR centralized planning and the result was the start of the growth of big brother and has led us to the current mess our country is in today. 

Some 60 years later Congressman Traficant made the following remarks about the results of the acts that FDR and Congress instituted on March 9, 1933.  Read the Congressional Record:  
America is by no means a third world nation like Venezuela yet.  However we are rapidly slipping down the slope in route to that distinction.   
Our Schools are failing the students, our credit rating as a nation is at risk, our dollar is in decline, and our borders are left open.  Factories have left in droves along with good paying jobs.  Government debt has spiraled out of control and our military might has become flaccid. Government agencies are abusing the people.  Our homes have lost their value.  Currently the FCC is moving to take over the internet.  The President and First Lady want to tell us what you and your children should eat. 

These are just some of the examples of the current state of distress America is experiencing. 
It's time to wake up and reclaim our great nation before the bureaucrats in Washing D.C. turn us into the Socialist States of Amerika.

  1. More right-wing propaganda. FDR saved capitalism & 1st time USA having a massive middle class. Conservative bitch about "big brother" only when welfare state grows but jump for joy when surveillance state grows. Since conservative rule under Reagan the middle class has been under assault.
