The Only Thing to Fear is Fear Itself?

Sorry, Franklin, but I have to dissent on this. Much more frightening in my opinion is an imperial Presidency which needlessly plunges the country into war, imprisons tens of thousands of its own citizens based solely on their ethnicity, attempts to pack the Supreme Court (nine justices wasn't enough, I guess) with little more than rubber stamps, utilizes the FBI and IRS as weapons of revenge, attempts to institute a top tax rate of 100% and orchestrate the entire economy from Washington as if it was his own private petri-dish, etc.. And, while, yes, Jefferson, Madison, and the rest of the Founding Fathers were flawed as well, the fact that they had had the foresight to warn us about tyrants like you leads me to think that there were at least SOME positive qualities floating around back then - some, as opposed to none.

The thing I would fear is the crippled guy behind the wheel of that car.
