Listening to the radio one evening with the rest of your family in in the autumn of 1934, a heated argument ensues between yourself (a Roosevelt Democrat) and your father, a staunch old-line Republican who supported Herbert Hoover in the recent past. You tend to take FDR's comments as "Gospel," while your father takes the position that FDR is simply a devious demagogue dedicated to propaganda. Write an original "mini-dialogue" (100 words max each) for both parties, concentrating upon each of the following areas:
1. The earnestness (or lack thereof) with which FDR describes how his "New Deal" will help America recover from the worst ravages of the Depression
2. The huge amount of information he is able to relay to his listeners in a comparatively short time (15 minutes).
3. The impact that you believe that massive federal intervention in the lives of Americans will have upon the individual initiative of future generations of Americans
