A Second Bill of Rights

A President of the United States believed a second bill of rights needed tobe announced.

This President uttered these rights during a State of the Union Address.

This Second Bill of Rights…is below.

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.

Who said this? Franklin Delano Roosevelt during his 1944 State of the Union.


Sixty-six years later and the American public are up-in-arms about what is going on in our economy. Read and understand your history folks. Save the rage for something that’s worth it.
