Things FDR Said Which Proves His Greatness in Supporting a Sovereign America

FDR was a great man. He was badmouthed recently by the elite who wanted to deregulate business and banking. He was hated by them. FDR put the sovereignty of the nation ahead of the power of big money. He said these things:

"The money changers have fled from their high seats in the temple of our civilization. We may now restore that temple to the ancient truths. The measure of the restoration lies in the extent to which we apply social values more noble than mere monetary profit."
First Inaugural Address (4 March 1933).
"In my Inaugural I laid down the simple proposition that nobody is going to starve in this country. It seems to me to be equally plain that no business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country. By "business" I mean the whole of commerce as well as the whole of industry; by workers I mean all workers, the white collar class as well as the men in overalls; and by living wages I mean more than a bare subsistence level-I mean the wages of decent living."
"We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace—business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering. They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob. Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me—and I welcome their hatred."

Gary here: FDR said class warfare came from the top, and that war profiteering and financial speculation caused the elite to believe that the US government was merely an appendage to their own affairs. FDR viewed organized money as being as dangerous as an organized mob. He was a great American.
