How Far We’ve Come – Today’s Democrats vs. FDR’s “Four Freedoms” in State of the Union Address January 6, 1941

While listening to some of the 500+ Classic Christmas shows (posted here) I ran across a recording I’d not heard before.  It is FDR’s 1941 State of the Union Address titled “The Four Freedoms”

This address was given almost a year before Pearl Harbor. The world he describes as he guides the country to prepare for growing international threats is startlingly different from today’s “Open Borders” Democrats.  He makes the point that up until that time all of the conflicts the US was involved in were essentially internal – and not a threat to the existence of the country.
