I hope that as people read through Roosevelt's writings, the recognize him for what he was, a dangerous progressive.

There are no more dangerous people in the world then those that believe they know something that they do not know. This fact was stated 2012 plus 399 years ago.

You wish a villain to easy your mind so that others may think you smart.  TR is a political compass that would go a very long way to curing what tortures you and the rest of us about our Big Brother Government.  I have been down this road before with shortsighted people. You want to brand him with laws that others have enacted. The laws that have grown that we both despise have been fertilized by people of a different philosophy than TR. Look at what he did and what he believed in doing. He gave more opinions that anyone ever has in public life. Today no one will give you an honest opinion least they lose their royal political position. You do not even know that when the world destroyed his most treasured possessions it was because he wanted to do something about judges legislating from the bench. He said it was his duty to spend and be spent. Would you do and say the same for every day of your adult life as he did? What ex-president ever sent 6 family members into a war, 4 to the front line in the first wave of the deadliest fighting of WW1. Please do a little research.

The word progressive is nebulous but easy for people that do not wish to think very hard to use. They can proclaim that “Here I am! I have the answer all need to hear”.

The amazing thing about TR is that he lived what he spoke. Here is something to read that hit the target in 1903 and will hit it 100 years from today.

I wish no villain.  The villains are as the villains did, and there's no need to artificially add to the list.  And my blog postings are proof that I've done plenty of research.  TR can't be a political compass that would cure what tortures us today, considering that progressivism is what ails us and TR was a progressive too.  If you want compasses that will cure what ails us, look to the founders.  That's where I look.  And the term progressive is much more specific than you wish to admit.

Roosevelt recommended that very book.

http://progressingamerica.blogspot.com/2011/08/two-noteworthy-books-on-democracy...

If you want to read history, just make sure you read all of it.  Don't just focus in on the personal/family side of the person while completely ignoring the man's views on just how activist the government should be in everyone's life.  You are right when you say how honest TR was, he was very honest about how much he favored big government.  The question is, what will it take to get you to listen to him?

You seek such simple-minded answers. You and Glen Beck seem to have perfect minds to solve complicated worldly issues of man’s greed with one simple solution. A parchment of paper was perfect, if we could only return to it in you minds eye, but you are a sophist if you think that possible. It is true that the Constitution has fundamental truths which should be carefully considered (As TR did hold high in regard, I might add) but it was necessary that wise people needed to build upon the foundation that started our great experiment.  The founding fathers compromised to say slavery was ok in a country divided on the issue. Did you ever read the life of Thomas Benton on this issue? Are you a Bigot? Did you ever feel the power of a J.D. Rockefeller at the dawn of the industrial age? Did you ever consider that privilege was for those of money and not the workers and women and children at the dawn of the industrial age not to mention others of Rockefeller's stamp that wished monopolies legal? One man fearlessly faced their arrows and fury in those days and awakened the sleeping who felt powerless. Today we have two factions vying for power. The super rich and the entitlement class, both will destroy this country. The tables have changed the entitlement class now stand where the money class stood in TR's day.  If people of TR's stamp held the reins of congress over the last 100 years you would have had a government to be proud of as was outlined in the speech I listed that you did not read.

You mean the man who almost singlehandedly allowed us to move away from using whale oil for fuel and lubrication, and brought inexpensive energy to our economy, making possible nearly everything from then on that makes our lives comfortable?  That J. D. Rockefeller?

It never occurs to you that that is because of, not in spite of, government interference in a free market economy, does it?

You need to educate yourself in history and the economics of a free market before you presume to lecture others.

I have read about J.D..  Yes that J.D. Rockefeller who would give a bright new shiny dime as a tip to those he crushed. But it was not only J.D. that had privilege under the system that you so revere. It was the people of his stamp that had an 8 year old child work in the mines endless hours with no time to go to school. It was the working men and women that worked 7 days a week to pay the company store with nothing lift. It was the railroad workers that lost life and limbs because they were cheeper than air breaks. It was the sugar trust that used a counter acting spring to avoid tariffs. It was the railroads that gave a rebate to the big dog and crushed the small guy out of business. It was the meat packers that could pack spoiled meat. Would it not be great to eat mad cow products today. It was the people of the feather wars that kill birds for their feathers and ate their eggs for a delicacy in the name of free enterprise. It was the timber magnets that claimed the right to cut any tree in sight with no regard to scientific forestry. (Ever read about the forest that turned to desert in China, TR did). It was the animal habitats that would have been destroyed if land was not set aside. But I guess the uncheck free enterprise of the privileged would have made life better for us today. There would be more room on earth for us today with 10,000 less animals. Next you will say that the environmental movement of today is TR’s fault as you say poor laws that have put the entitlement class into prominence today is his fault. TR fought both extremes. Lumber production went up under his administration, business prospered, the budget was balanced. How could this be true? Because he did not believe in government handouts. If a person expected to be carried he said they were not worth carrying. This is the dividing point between good common sense laws and destructive laws. Look and discover the root problems that caused the problems of today. Do not grasp a simple notion of a villain and a return to the good old days that actually had some great flaws that would have destroyed all progress if left un-checked.


Do not be shallow in your reasoning. Look at illegal immigration. What caused it? Is it not the fact that our law makers (to preserve their own royal position) have created an entitlement class. I own a small business and know the effects. You can not find workers. We do not hire illegal so we go without needed workers and stay smaller than we should be. If not for the law makers that make people say they would lose too much if they take a job the American people would be working. Businesses need workers and that is the first step in breaking down the boarders because illegals do not have entitlements and they will work. But our politicians are even changing that in there socialistic compromise for an illegal vote.

There are many problems in our country. They are the same that TR fought against and won against great odds. He did not need to fight the entitlement class to any extent because they did not exist as they do today, but he had the vision to warn us against it. We failed to here his words. He had said that any politician that needed the job could be twisted. Today we only have politicians that need to keep their job for life. How do they do, the people's business honestly. Every position he held he took positions that most said would end his career. But providence saved him and put him in a new position because he had one duty. The duty of an American Patriot. Ever here what he believed an American Patriot meant?

Just a little long winded but there is just a few more things to say.

There are none so blind than those that refuse to see. The one that you blame is the one that has the answers that you need. He has shown us through a life of examples how people of average ability can develop skill to an extraordinary extent. He beat the media that was every bit as strong as it is today. He beat the privileged class of the George Soros of his day. We failed to see and take heed of what he said we should stay clear of. And we have just about no chance of recovery. The one thing he did not beat is the opiate of the masses, TV and the radio that people listen to songs over and over again and never have time to read a book. We do not have a politician problem. We have a lack of American Patriot citizens’ problem. If ever the people awake to a problem the politicians will follow. I fear the people will never awake again they are too busy watching re-runs of sit-coms. So the politicians will continue to do their own thing, which enables those that can twist them. The rest of the story seems bleak. It is even bleaker when those that have an interest in doing something are miss-lead about what the root problems may be. The root problem is not Theodore Roosevelt he is part of the solution. All we need is a square deal for all. But we now live in a world of special deals.

I own a business as well, and have employed hundreds over the years.  I also have a graduate degree in economics, and will tell you straight forwardly that it is you who is the shallow thinker.  You apparently know very little about economics in a free market.

Monopolies can form and exist for a short time in a free market, but cannot survive in the tong term without government regulation, which is precisely what TR advocated then, and what progressives advocate today.  Because of regulatory capture, large companies eager to eliminate smaller competitors and carve out a protected monopoly for themselves, depend on government interference to make themselves exempt from the discipline of a free market.

The government should involve itself in the market only to the extent of creating a system of law within which companies operate.

Rockefeller's monopoly could not, and would not have survived for long in a free market.

Your complaints about economic conditions you see as unfair today should be a big red flag for you.  America has one of the most heavily regulated economies in the world, and yet these conditions exist.  Why is that?  Is your solution to pile government regulation upon earlier regulation endlessly?  When do you realize how counterproductive your beliefs are?  You cannot solve a problem created by government regulation by yet more government regulation.
