Franklin Delano Roosevelt “FDR” (D)
(32nd President, 1933-1945)
b. 1-30-1882; Hyde Park, NY
d. 4-12-1945; Warm Springs, GA

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt served for 12 years and four terms, the only president ever to serve more than eight years.

A central figure in global events during the mid-20th century, FDR lead the United States through the Great Depression of the 1930s with his “New Deal” policies and World War II.

In 1939 FDR proclaimed the 4th Thursday in November as the national day of Thanksgiving, in order to boost the economy. In late 1941 Congress jointly resolved the 4th Thursday, which was signed by FDR.

• “... let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.” ~ First Inaugural Address (4 March 1933)
• “History proves that dictatorships do not grow out of strong and successful governments, but out of weak and helpless ones. If by democratic methods people get a government strong enough to protect them from fear and starvation, their democracy succeeds; but if they do not, they grow impatient. Therefore, the only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over its government.” ~ 1938
• “The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerated the growth of private power to a point where it comes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group.”
• “Let us not be afraid to help each other — let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and Senators and Congressmen and Government officials but the voters of this country.” ~ 1938

Harry S Truman (D)
(33rd President, 1945-1953)
b. 5-8-1884; Lamar, Missouri
d. 12-26-1972; KCMO

Harry S Truman quotes ~
• “If we falter in our leadership we may endanger the peace of the world, and we shall surely endanger the welfare of the nation.”
• “Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.” ~ message to Congress, August 8, 1950
• “Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home – but not for housing. They are strong for labor – but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage – the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all – but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine – for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing – but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing – so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.”
• “I never did give them hell. I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell.”
• “Fame is a vapor, popularity is an accident, riches take wings, those who cheer today may curse tomorrow and only one thing endures - character.”
• “If you can't convince them, confuse them.”
• “You want a friend in this city? [Washington, DC.] Get a dog!”
• “Once a decision was made, I didn't worry about it afterward...”
• “The only new thing in the world is the history you don't know.”
• “We should resolve now that the health of this nation is a national concern; that financial barriers in the way of attaining health shall be removed; that the health of all it's citizens deserves the help of all the nation.”
• “Those who want the Government to regulate matters of the mind and spirit are like men who are so afraid of being murdered that they commit suicide to avoid assassination.”
• “When Kansas and Colorado have a quarrel over the water in the Arkansas River they don’t call out the National Guard in each state and go to war over it. They bring a suit in the Supreme Court of the United States and abide by the decision. There isn’t a reason in the world why we cannot do that internationally.”
• “The release of atomic energy constitutes a new force too revolutionary to consider in the framework of old ideas.”

Dwight D. Eisenhower (R)
(34th President, 1953-1961)
b. 10-14-1890; Denison, TX
b. 3-28-1969; Washington, DC

Dwight David Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States, had been a five-star general in the United States Army during World War II. As the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe he had responsibility for planning and supervising the invasion of North Africa in Operation Torch in 1942–43 and the successful invasion of France and Germany in 1944–45 from the Western Front. He was Harry S Truman's Chief of Staff of the Army (1945), President of Columbia University (1948), and the first supreme commander of NATO (1951),

Eisenhower opposed McCarthyism, continued New Deal policies, expanded Social Security, launched the Interstate Highway System, NASA, the national Defense Education Act and the Atomic Energy Act. Eisenhower also sent federal troops to Little Rock, Arkansas to enforce federal court orders to desegregate public schools. Russia entered space with Sputnik (1957) and the U-2 spy plane incident happen in 1960. He also started the People to People organization.

Dwight D. Eisenhower quote ~
• “I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its stupidity.” Ottawa, 1946
• “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” ~ Military-Industrial Complex Speech, Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961
• “Kinship among nations is not determined in such measurements as proximity of size and age. Rather we should turn to those inner things — call them what you will — I mean those intangibles that are the real treasures free men possess. To preserve his freedom of worship, his equality before law, his liberty to speak and act as he sees fit, subject only to provisions that he trespass not upon similar rights of others — a Londoner will fight. So will a citizen of Abilene. When we consider these things, then the valley of the Thames draws closer to the farms of Kansas and the plains of Texas.” ~ London, June 1945
• “Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.” ~ in letter to his brother
• “If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.”
• “We look upon this shaken Earth, and we declare our firm and fixed purpose — the building of a peace with justice in a world where moral law prevails. The building of such a peace is a bold and solemn purpose. To proclaim it is easy. To serve it will be hard.” ~ 2nd Inaugural
• “I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.”
• “Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.
Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely. But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory! I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle.
We will accept nothing less than full Victory! Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.” Order of the Day, June 2, 1944
• “It'll be a sad day for this country if children can safely atten their classes only under the protection of armed guards.” ~ referring to Little Rock, Arkansas, High School, 9-23-1957

Lyndon B. Johnson “LBJ” (D)
(36th President, 1963-1969)
b. 8-27-1908; Stonewall, TX
d. 1-22-1973; Johnson City, TX

Lyndon Baines Johnson assumed the position of 36th president after the assassination of John F. Kennedy and was elected president in 1964.

LBJ was responsible for designing the “Great Society” legislation that included civil rights, public broadcasting, Medicare, Medicaid, environmental protection, aid to education, and his “War on Poverty.” He also escalated the Vietnam War.

Johnson, a teacher before he became a political figure was one of only four people to serve as a Representative, Senator, Vice President and President (John Tyler, Andrew Johnson and Richard M. Nixon).

LBJ quotes ~
• “This is a sad time for all people. We have suffered a loss that cannot be weighed. For me, it is a deep, personal tragedy. I know the world shares the sorrow that Mrs. Kennedy and her family bear. I will do my best; that is all I can do. I ask for your help and God's.”
• “I am concerned about the whole man. I am concerned about what the people, using their government as an instrument and a tool, can do toward building the whole man, which will mean a better society and a better world.”
• “The American city should be a collection of communities where every member has a right to belong. It should be a place where every man feels safe on his streets and in the house of his friends. It should be a place where each individual’s dignity and self-respect is strengthened by the respect and affection of his neighbors. It should be a place where each of us can find the satisfaction and warmth which comes from being a member of the community of man. This is what man sought at the dawn of civilization. It is what we seek today.”
• “There is no issue of States' rights or National rights. There is only the struggle for human rights.”
• “I shall never forget the faces of the boys and the girls in that little Welhausen Mexican School, and I remember even yet the pain of realizing and knowing then that college was closed to practically every one of those children because they were too poor. And I think it was then that I made up my mind that this nation could never rest while the door to knowledge remained closed to any American.”
• “If one morning I walked on top of the water across the Potomac River, the headline that afternoon would read: ‘President Can't Swim’.”
• “I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your President.”
