President Franklin D. Roosevelt

- As President Franklin D. Roosevelt once put it, “Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country” (Roosevelt 1938).

While this assertion is certainly true to some degree, the real problems of democracy will arise when young people disengage themselves from politics altogether....   [tags: Politician, Politicians]

Two of these important members of the early American Revolution were Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Rush, both slave owners who spoke for the moral equality of slaves, but had different understandings of equality and freedom and how it sho...   [tags: Slavery, Slavery in the United States]
