Would you vote for these people?

FDR's Four Freedoms
Freedom of speech
Freedom of worship
Freedom from want
Freedom from fear
The people in the picture, despite being wealthy, would never be able to be elected to the white house today. Not without considerable surgery and a good photoshop program. Eleanor Roosevelt, my favorite first lady and human rights activist, was not photogenic, but what an amazing spirit. Look at what she and her husband accomplished.Now it's almost all been taken away. Now there are protests in the streets. I keep thinking about Obama's big bus, why hasn't he visited occupy Wall St.? Why hasn't Michelle Obama done anything but plant tomatoes? How is it that we have this democratic president, with people in the streets peacefully protesting their suffering and the Obama's are nowhere to be found? It really boggles the mind.You know what else? It positively reeks. It smells like money and it's in every politicians pocket that doesn't acknowledge and support all these smart and fine people who have been left behind in this economic catastrophe that didn't have to happen. I wonder how much money did FDR take? I'm thinking there might have been some backroom stuff going on back then, but he didn't sell out the people who voted for him. Do you honestly think Eleanor was busy thinking about the latest designer dress to put on before an appearance? Where are our leaders? Positioning themselves for the next election. It's disgusting and it's wrong. I personally vote for Occupy Wall St. Franklin and Eleanor must be rolling over in their graves.
