Regular readers of TBP know that I spend some time rooting around in the excellent American Presidency Project, a remarkable resource. Sometimes I’m looking for something specific, other times I’m just getting a feel, a flavor, for the message coming from our leadership, specifically the president. The latter was the case when I undertook a search to see how the phrase “home ownership” has been used by presidents over time.
Herewith, FDR’s Message to Congress, April 13, 1933. Spooky stuff.
Adding: Did not know when BR was going to run this piece, but since he slated it for Thanksgiving, I’ll take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe holiday. Enjoy friends and family.

I have repeatedly demonstrated that – despite the false divide-and-conquer tactics of the mainstream parties and mainstream media – the overwhelming majority of Americans agree on the most important issues facing our country. See this.
NO MORE BAILOUTS!
As I've noted since 2008, Americans are united in their overwhelming disapproval for bailouts to the big banks.
This has remained true right up to today.
As Rassmussen found only last month (as summarized by KXLF news):
As the Washington Post's Greg Sargent notes, the recent proposal from lobbyists to the American Bankers Association recommending ways to co-opt the Occupy movement accurately stated:
(Except that it is the majority of Americans – not "extremists" on either side of the aisle – that share this anger).
The "Tea Party" movement was centered on the protesting government bailouts of the giant banks, before it was hijacked by the mainstream Republican party, Sarah Palin, Neocons and others. See this, this, this, this and this.
Ron Paul said last month at a GOP debate:
And one of the most common sayings of Occupy Wall Street protesters is:
END CRONY CAPITALISM!
I noted last year:
PROSECUTE WALL STREET FRAUD!
I pointed out a year ago:
Indeed, Rasmussen found last month:
END – OR AT LEAST REIN IN – THE FEDERAL RESERVE!
As I pointed out last month, Americans are not happy with the Federal Reserve:
RESPECT THE CONSTITUTION AND OUR LIBERTY!
As I noted in September, Americans want our freedom back:
END PERPETUAL WAR!
Americans want to put a stop to perpetual warfare:
MAKE ELECTIONS FAIR!
I noted last year that Americans want fair elections:
KEEP POISON OUT OF OUR FOOD AND WATER!
I noted last year that Americans want safe food and water:
IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AGREE ON THESE CORE ISSUES, WHY AREN'T OUR DEMANDS BEING HEARD?
If Americans from across the spectrum agree, why aren't these desires being implemented by our politicians?
Because our politicians are bought and paid for … lock, stock and barrel.
And the powers-that-be are good at using the age-old divide and conquer trick to keep us weak, divided and fighting at each others' throat … instead of for what we actually want.
But ultimately, the main reason that we are impotent is that we don't realize that the overwhelming majority of Americans want the same things we do.
Indeed, most Americans – conservatives and liberals – are fed up with both the mainstream Republican and Democratic parties. This is not surprising, given that neither party is addressing the core demands of the American people as a whole.
Sure, liberals and conservatives will always disagree on some things. But if we realized how many core beliefs we share, we would unite to take our country back from those who disagree with fundamental American values.
