President Franklin D. Roosevelt Biography – YouTube.

The President who brought Democratic-Socialism into law in America with the creation of the American safety-net. Democratic-Socialism as a movement and a political philosophy had been around much longer than that in America. Going back to the late 1890s or even further than that but President Roosevelt was the first President to get those programs passed into law. And what makes FDR different from todays what I call so-called Progressives. What that FDR wanted to save American Capitalism, not try to end to and replace it with something else. Which was what the New Deal was about which was to have a safety-net that people could turn to. To make up for the shortfalls of Capitalism like people being out of work.
