"Bold, persistent experimentation"

FDR:

The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it: If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something. The millions who are in want will not stand by silently forever while the things to satisfy their needs are within easy reach. We need enthusiasm, imagination and the ability to face facts, even unpleasant ones, bravely. We need to correct, by drastic means if necessary, the faults in our economic system from which we now suffer. We need the courage of the young. Yours is not the task of making your way in the world, but the task of remaking the world which you will find before you. May every one of us be granted the courage, the faith and the vision to give the best that is in us to that remaking!

Yep. This is what the left needs to do, I would argue. And outside the existing legacy party structure, including the "Crashing the Gates" (so they can turn gatekeepers themselves) crowd.

have been experimenting! With Fascism and fraudulent financing. The biggest experiment, of shipping 200 years of industrial progress out of the country(by stock manipulators and banksters) might end up being terminal.

Makes Obama look like the merest pygmy. The pygmy should resign immediately.
