Bill O' Rights 2.0

Man, I wish we could dig up Roosevelt's bones and make him some kind of mega cyborg president. These are about the best ideas ever:

The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the Nation;

The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;

The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;

The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;

The right of every family to a decent home;

The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;

The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;

The right to a good education.

Where are our politicians like this? They're called Ralph Nader, but Kerry will have to do I suppose.
