He gives a little history lesson on the development of progtardianism, starting with Marx's materialistic dialectic, and going on to other major figures in proglodytianism as they have affected our country. I am now at the point where he discusses Teddy Roosevelt, who was not a Conservative, but a Progressive.
Breitbart relates two quotes. One, the famous "We grudge no man a fortune in civil life" line which morphs into "only so long as the gaining represents benefit to the community."
The second quote is far more ominous: "To hell with the Constitution when the people want coal!" The link leads to The Mises Institute's book review on Thomas Woods' 33 Questions About American History You're Not Supposed to Ask. In the review, the article's author states:
"But who bears responsibility for this 'imperial presidency'? Woods places much of the blame on Theodore Roosevelt, who 'loathed inactivity' (p. 136). Though highly intelligent — my late friend Mel Bradford rated him the brightest of all the presidents — he was dominated by passions he made little effort to control."
So, Obama's speech in Kansas two weeks ago, with his attempt to invoke the ghost of TR, should have prompted more foreboding about how worse things can get if this type of mentality occupies the Oval Office for another four years.
