06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

Here is an actual clause of the #USConstitution:

“...no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

US Constitution, Article VI, Clause 3

#buescher
#nominee
#Nebraska
Suppose that Article VI had a further Clause, Clause 4, that stated, “no racial identity shall ever be the basis for a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
Now, such a clause would prohibit the President from granting or withholding an office based on racial identity, and, in like vein, would prohibit the Senate from withholding consent to a nomination, or granting it, on the basis of racial identity.

The Suffocation of Democracy

As a historian specializing in the #Holocaust, #Nazi Germany, and #Europe in the era of the world wars, I have been repeatedly asked about the degree to which the current situation in the United States resembles the interwar period and the rise of #fascism in Europe.
2/
I would note several troubling similarities and one important but equally troubling difference.

In the 1920s, the US pursued #isolationism in foreign #policy and rejected participation in international organizations like the League of Nations.

Since this article doesn't seem to have any interactive element to it, I'm going to hold a series of polls to determine the winner: #DemBracket #DemPrimary2020 #2020Polls #MarchMadness #BracketOfRandomThings #Bracketology #FITN @TheDemocrats
First matchup in the #Lefties portion of the bracket! Of these 2, which would you rather support in the 2020 Democratic primaries for president?
1. @SenSanders i.e. @BernieSanders #Sanders2020
2. @ninaturner #Turner2020
#TwitterPoll #FeelTheBern #OurRevolution
(Oops, I forgot to include the seeds; Bernie is 1st seed and Nina is 8th seed. The '1' and '2' by their names aren't seeds, but rather correspond to the poll options. I'll fix this in the rest of them, seeing as someone's already voted in this one.)
