A Short Presidential History Lesson

The election of Democrats W. Wilson, F. D. Roosevelt and J. Kennedy were all followed by periods of war with very large numbers of US dead and maimed.

Adolf Hitler was elected by a popular vote based on the support of those who hated Jews, feared further economic problems, thought socialistic actions were a solution and wanted change.

A. Lincoln was swept into a second term in large part by the enabling of the voting of active duty members of our armed forces. Republicans would do well to plan and act to insure that vote in the next election as the lack of some of those votes may have contributed to the Republican's 2008 loses.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it".
