    I imagine great minds discuss/discussed all three. It’s kind of hard not to discuss current events or the people involved unless you live in a cave.

    I can really relate to this. I am sorry if I sound smug. While I was studying in a university city (bubble) and sometimes visiting my parents in a small town, there was a huge contrast.

    FDR was a traitorous commie bastard, and a self absorbed narcissistic sociopath. Only a truly evil power hungry piece of garbage would go for a third term. George Washington himself set the two term precedent. FDR thought he was God's gift to the world like most Democrat politicians, and decided to use the desperation of Americans during the great depression to prolong his stay in office.
