Swords into Plowshares

Executive orders alive and well with FDR..."I brought up the executive order [FDR's] in a .....committee discussion to warn of unintended consequences that might present themselves once sanctions were placed on Iran....My comment was promptly ridiculed by another committee member who revealed he had either never heard about the significance of the oil embargo on Japan [4 mo. before Pearl Harbor] or just wanted to hear nothing of it. Similarly, many people will shut down any discussion of how tariffs the U.S. Government imposed on the South had something to do with the Civil War. Even today the war propaganda of decades past prevents people from learning from history." -Ron Paul "Swords into Plowshares" #startingagoodbook #betterthandebates #cultivate http://youtu.be/4q1zaEf4xFc <--- check it
