Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
As our country, the blessed United States Of America, succumbs to the will of the elite. Once again we are redistributing wealth to the privileged and wealthy. The good Reverend Joseph does his best to have President Roosevelt as a Guest. The Reverend looks at the Second Bill Of Rights that President Roosevelt proposed and where we are today.
The Reverend reflects on how Nafta, the WTO, and 401Ks work to undermine America and how the second bills of rights not only address these issues but should be a source of inspiration for all people. Please join Reverend Joseph for prayer and thought.
The Second Bill of Rights was a list of rights proposed by Franklin D. Roosevelt, the then President of the United States, during his State of the Union Address on January 11, 1944. In his address Roosevelt suggested that the nation had come to recognize, and should now implement, a second "bill of rights". Roosevelt's argument was that the "political rights" guaranteed by the constitution and the Bill of Rights had "proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness." Roosevelt's remedy was to declare an "economic bill of rights" which would guarantee:
* Employment, with a living wage,
* Freedom from unfair competition and monopolies,
* Medical care,
* Education, and,
* Social security
