“Honest, Intelligent and Courageous Government Can Solve Many Problems:” F.D. Roosevelt Address

“Today there is emerging a real and forceful belief on the part of the great masses of the people that the honest, intelligent and courageous government can solve many problems which the average individual cannot face alone in a world where there are no longer one hundred and twenty acres of good free land for everybody.”

F.D. Roosevelt, addressing the Jackson Day Dinner in 1939.
