Excellent information about the history of republican politics.
It could still happen again if we allow these lying bastards to gain ever more power and take all of our power away along with our money. they will attack when they see we are weak enough. Don’t let that happen.
Barrack the vote
Vote for Obama because:
Smedley Butler, who lived from 1881 to 1940, was a Marine Major General who was slated by the American Liberty League to become President in a coup d’état against FDR in 1933. The coup would have been America’s first, but it never took place because General Butler refused to participate. The American Liberty League was an early version of the TEA Party organized by the moguls of Wall Street as a faux populist movement and spouted much the same nonsense as the TEA Party does now. A portion of Barack Obama’s hesitancy to act more forcefully during the Great Recession was a fear of provoking another plot by the 1% to sponsor a coup. Nothing came of the American Liberty League plot except a few Congressional hearings. The League existed for 6 years from 1934 to 1940.
