The Repugs persist in using historic Democratic images to promote their own anti-Democratic agenda.

The ad, running on Fox News and CNN through January 19, shows FDR signing the legislation creating the Social Security system and refers to the courage needed both to create the system and to protect it.

To compare the courage needed to create Social Security "to the courage it will take to dismantle the most successful social program in history is simply unconscionable," Roosevelt, 70, wrote.

Bush wants to remake Social Security by letting workers divert some of their payroll taxes from the retirement system into personal investment accounts. Critics argue that such a move is too risky and would undermine the system's financial solvency.

Republican Agenda:

1. Find a successful program that helps people.
2. Claim the program is corrupt and wasteful without providing any evidence.
3. Enflame small government conservatives and offer payola to prominent pundits.
4. Underfund the program.
5. Claim the program is broken and must be fixed.
6. "Fix" the program by weakening it further.

The real agenda is to "shrink government down to a size where it can be drowned in the bathtub" as Grover Nordquist once quipped. If the majority of Americans new this, they would be apoplectic.

Keep it up!
