Not shooting the extreme split tongued 2 faced (x%#@C*&) messenger, the message is exactly right on / correct.

    As a stand alone quote, this is absolute truth. We already have freedom and liberty. The law should (if anything) define liberty, but it does NOT grant it.

    The quote is true, but coming from the mouth of Woodrow Wilson is insane, considering how he ran the country.

    By facilitating the creation of the Federal Reserve W. Wilson vastly increased the reach and power of the Federal government. Hypocrite.
     -- R. Ball, Janesville WI     
    Wilson was duped. While he understood the problem, he mis-identified the enemy, and they tricked him easily. Essentially he was stupid. Colonel Mandell House was his handler, and, man, did Wilson fall for it. Wilson is the poster boy for 'progressivism' and its followers today are also being duped by the same power brokers.
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    That from the President that stuffed his cabinet with people that we now call Progressives. They wanted "industrial democracy". The interpretation of that is simply that all own the means of production. Or in other words Marxism. He was a disaster as a president. That is a typical result when a college professor president and a cabinet full of college professor run a country. Intellectuals are typically are that stupid. They think that they are so much smarter than the rest of us that we need them to run our lives because we can not be trusted to make our own decisions. In reality motives and motivation makes up for a whole lot of IQ.
