The story that FDR's New Deal shook out of lots of Murkins protesting is 10% of what actually drove the New Deal and what the 1% want us to believe.
During the first half of the 20th century 10% of Murkins who voted supported socialist or communist candidates who were ON THE BALLOT, giving Dems and GOP congresscritters cover to support the New Deal to keep the US from going commie. Huey Long and a few other leftists also played a role.
With 98% of Murkins who voted in 2012 supporting the corporate Dem or GOP candidate and only 1% supporting the two socialist candidates and 1% supporting the other 4 progressive candidates, the Democrats have zero incentive to toss any crumbs to the 99% and every incentive to withdraw the few New Deal crumbs they have not already withdrawn.
Until more of the 99% understand this actual history we will continue to be subject to chosing between getting our left leg cut off (Clinton) or our right leg cut off (Trump).
