President Roosevelt (Jack's Webpage)

President Roosevelt was the 32nd president of the United State, and he won 4 president elections.Why people chose him, although his political view was vague was because, in those days was because he was democratic and people in the days thought it was better than republicans(Hoover). He is the only American president who was elected for four times, and was the only president who worked for two terms.

In 1928 Roosevelt became a government of New York. Roosevelt helped the American people to against the Great Depression.
He made a program to bring recovery to business and agriculture to the unemployed and to those who are in danger of losing their farms and homes and help them improve their lives from the great depression.


Franklin D. Roosevelt helped the American people to regain their faith towards themselves and brought hope when he promised action to them. He also made a law that if the stock market goes too low, it will have to close.

He was elected on November 1932, and by march the following year, during his first hundred days, he set up alphabet agencies called AAA (Agricultural Adjustment Administration) to support the farm prices to support farmers and the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) provide young men with jobs, to be specific it hired 250,000 unemployed young men. This gave a relief to the unemployed and people who were in danger to loose everything. He also created other projects aswell called the National Youth Administration(NYA), Farm Security Administration(FSA), National Recovery Administration(NRA) and the Public Works Administration(PWA). He was also not only trying to reduce the unemplyment rate, but he also tried to help the people who couldn't actually work because of some kind of reason. He gave out federal money who were really desperate.

Other agencies helped business and labor, lend banks money to pay back their deposits, restricted the stock market, subsidized(decreased) the amount people needed to pay back for their house and farmlands, and helped the unemployed. These measurements activated the economy. That opened banks and rescued millions of people from starvation. He also did a thing called "bank holiday" which he demanded al the banks to close temporarily, and congress and prepare for reopen with no interferring.

But not everyone was happy about the New Deal. By 1935, America had gained some recovery through the New Deal Program, but businessmen and bankers were not happy, for the government was interfering with the economic and social life directly and they made more outputs than the money they had. Many people argued that the government spent too much money on the public works going into dept and regulating business and industry. To please them, Roosevelt set up social security, heavier taxes for the rich, new controls over public needs and banks, and a great program of providing working opportunities to the jobless.

In 1936 he was elected again by a top-heavy margin. Feel like he was armed with a popular order, he sought regulations to enlarge the Supreme Court, Roosevelt lost the Supreme Court battle, but a revolution in authorized law took place. After that the Government could legally regulate the economy. When France fell and England came under arrested in 1940, he began to send Great Britain all possible short help of actual military complexity.

On December 7, 1941, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt directed formation of the Nations man power and resources for the world war. Feel that the future peacefulness of the world would depend same relationship in between the United States and Russia, he devoted much thinking to the plan of a United Nations, and he hoped the international difficulties can be decided .

President Roosevelt set the Twenty-second amendment to the United States, which is about "No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once." and it began at February 27, 1951.
