Hillary chose FDR's Marxist Memorial to re-launch her demand for the presidency

Roosevelt Island hosts the Marxist Memorial, dedicated to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, at its southern tip.

(The memorial officially is known as the FDR Four Freedoms Park.  FDR’s wife Eleanor, Hillary’s admitted inspiration, is the ghost with whom Hillary famously said she conversed late at night in the White House


The memorial deifies FDR’s compilation of two God-given individual rights that he lifted from the U.S. First Amendment, and two responsibilities he wanted imposed upon the individual, from the tenets of Marxism.

The “Four Freedoms":

1. Freedom of speech and expression

2. Freedom of religion

3. Freedom from want

4. Freedom from fear

Freedoms 1 and 2 are God-given individual rights that every human is born with and that every nation should sanctify.  Of course, few do – which can be confirmed by looking at the roster of the countries that belong to the United Nations, housed in the Marxist Monument, the U.N. Secretariat Building, immediately across the East River.  That roster reads like a “Who’s Who” of global Marxists, tyrants, and terrorists, plus the free countries necessary to foot the bill.

While FDR’s “freedoms” 1 and 2 are individual rights, 3 and 4 are services FDR wanted guaranteed to one individual by another, which no free nation may rightly demand.  Because if you guarantee someone “freedom from want” and “freedom from fear," you are simultaneously enjoining someone else in that country to provide those services.  To garnish the income necessary.  And no free nation can impose such duties on its citizens and still call itself free.

Instead, this is the Marxist maxim, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need,” as well as an abrogation of the biblical commandment “Thou shalt not steal."

(Or, from the perspective of the U.N. parasites across the river, their “tax enslavement” of nations is imposed on those in the U.S., which foots 22% of the U.N. budget, and other free nations.)

But calling these last two “freedoms,” sanctifying them with a marble memorial in the shadow of the U.N. building, on the island formerly called welfare Welfare Island and renamed Roosevelt for the president who started the welfare state, then using this Marxist Memorial as the backdrop to your presidential campaign’s re-launch, confirms the Marxist ideology of the woman who wrote her college thesis on Saul Alinsky and spent the bulk of this campaign speech promising a continuation not of her husband’s attempt to triangulate to the center, but rather Barack Obama’s far-left “spread the wealth around” “fundamental transformation" of the country.

It is also a warning that electing her would be the equivalent of Obama’s third term.
