In a January 6, 1941 message to Congress, FDR proposed four fundamental freedoms that people everywhere in the world should have:
1. Freedom of speech
2. Freedom of religion
3. Freedom from want
4. Freedom from fear
In addition, FDR proposed a Second Bill of Rights for Americans (aka The Economic Bill of Rights) on January 11, 1944 in a message to Congress.
1. Employment with a living wage
2. Food and clothing and leisure
3. Farmers' rights to a fair income
4. Freedom from unfair competition and monopolies
6. Medical care
7. Social Security
That was 70 years ago.
Today, Democrats no longer believe in this, which is why an alternative party is needed.
The New Deal Progressives party is based around everything FDR believed in and the New Deal stood for.
It's time to ensure the Four Freedoms are officially a cornerstone along with the Constitution and The Bill of Rights, and the Second Bill of Rights is made law.
