Thought For the Day

"We often hear it said that government operation of anything under the sun is socialistic.  If that is so, our postal service is socialistic, so is the parcel post which has largely taken the place of the old express companies; so are the public highways which took the place of the toll roads."

~Franklin Roosevelt, campaigning for Governor of New York in 1928.

I'm not sure what the intent behind the posting of this quote was, but I'm guessing that it was an attempt to delegitimize any use of the word 'socialism' in reference to Obama's platform. I assume that's what FDR was trying to do when he issued the quote.

The government has the power to establish post offices and post roads, thus the government operation of roads.

I'm still searching the Constitution for the "good and welfare clause."

It's just a quote that I thought appropriate for the ongoing debate. Doesn't have anything to do with you or your argument.

Well, I think we can all agree with that fourth comment.
