    If ya wanna read some REAL, not sanitized, American history, pick up a copy of the book "Theodore and Woodrow" by Judge Andrew Napalitano.

    But be careful, you may learn that a great iconic American hero was really a first class progressive sunuvabitch.:p

    "The Untold History of The United States" By Oliver Stone & Peter Koznick is also a good read.

    Ole "Teddy" was the father of the modern Progressive {Liberal} movement in America. FDR took Progressivism to the door step of international Socialism.:eek:

    Theodore and Woodrow were the American version of Marx and Lenin.

    A Peoples History of the United States by Howard Zinn has always been a favorite of mine.

    A good WWII read- "I WAS THERE WHEN THE WORLD STOOD STILL" by K. Ray Marrs...... A true story about a guy at the age of 18 goes off to the Navy to pursue his dreams of being a pilot. The author goes into great detail on the emotions and thoughts of going off into they unknown and leaving the love of his life behind..... Great read

    No, I have not. TR was "the" Progressive of his day, in fact the first ever leader of so named political party. He was a luminous character, a true patriot, with aversion to multiculturalism, and compassion for the working people. Who is teasing now?! :)

    The Democrats, who later captured the notion of Progressive, and turned it on its head, were the reactionaries of their day. William Jennings Bryan. We are talking f...ing medieval. Woodrow Wilson. Name your price. Tell nitestalker I miss him and hungry for debate. :shooting:

    Wikpedia has been changed by half of those who look at it. Congress and senate staff especially and those seeking their correct views and reports on things.

    Woodrow Wilson was probably the third or fourth worst president in history. He got 2 constitutional amendments passed, the income tax, and worse the direct election of senators. Prior to him the people elected the house of representatives, and the states elected the senators. This was part of the balance of powers in the constitution. Do you think 90% of the unfunded mandates of the last 30 years dictated by the feds would have gotten through the senate if they were still answerable to the state legislatures instead of to the low informational voter.
