Why did Southern farmers oppose AAA programs?

User Avatar
Southern farmers opposed the Agricultural Adjustment Act because it reduced crop surplus so it could effectively raise the value of crops, because of that, a portion of their fields were left uncultivated. The money for these subsidies was made through an exclusive tax on companies which processed farm products.

Franklin Roosevelt was elected four times. He was elected in 1932,1936,1940 and 1944. He served three full 4-year terms and died three months into his fourth term. He first took office on March 4, 1933 and served until his death on April 12, 1945. He was to only US president ever to run for president more than two times. Because of the 1933 change of the Presidential inauguration date, Roosevelt's first term was only 46 months, from March 4, 1933 to January 20, 1937, when he was sworn in for his second term. His total time in office was 12 years and 40 days (4422 days). Following his death, the 22nd amendment (1951) established a Constitutional limit of two elected terms. It also effectively established the maximum that any future US President may serve to 10 years.

What were 3 great challenges Franklin Delano Roosevelt faced when he took office?

User Avatar
Upon election to office, FDR dealt with assisting his nation in surviving the Great Depression - this in itself included finding financial means to employ a great number of people who had lost their jobs. Creating funding for new programs to expand the nation - CCC, road crews to transportation, etc. He also dealt with World War 2 issues (attack on Pearl Harbor, providing funding and supplies for the allies, etc) for the latter part of his term in on office.

FDR accumulated a large and valuable stamp collection. I don't think anybody counted them, but it is not hard for a long-time collector to own more than a million stamps, but not all different.

How many times can a US president be elected?

User Avatar
US presidents can be elected to no more than two terms of four years each. They can not serve for more than 10 years and so can not be elected for a second term if they have already served more than 2 years of another president's term. This limit is set by the 22nd amendment to the Constitution which was ratified March 27, 1951. Before that date, there were no limits on how many times a president might be re-elected.

What was Franklin D. Roosevelt's role in World War 2?

User Avatar
FDR was a great president, which is why he served 3 terms (12 years) in the White House. This was due to the fact that we were in a war (WWII).While trying to resolve the issues overseas, he was diagnosed with polio. This paralyzed his legs, but with physical therapy and support from his family (four sons, one daughter, and his wife Eleanor) he regained some strength. He had many meetings with Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin about how to strategize the war. Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt made up the leaders of the allies. The leaders of the countries that made up the axis were Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Hirohito. There is an interesting link on the philosophical parallels between FDR and Stalin, his ally, at the related link below. ACTUALLY HE STOOD AND SAID WE ARE NOT GOING TO FIGHT FDR was the US President .

How did Franklin D Roosevelt communicate with the American people during the Great Depression?

User Avatar
Through the radio. Before the Depression, radios became popular. At that time, affluence allowed people to comfortably buy radios. Radio access is only a one time payment of actually purchasing the radio and programs come "free" after that. Knowing that most Americans owned radios that had already been paid for before they were economically burdened, FDR reached them through radio programs that he called "fireside chats" in which he addressed the American people.

If President Roosevelt was going overseas he would fly or go by ship (once the Germans were sent packing with their U Boats). On land he had his own train car and a nice automobile big enough to hold him, government people and his wheelchair and leg braces.

There isn't one single cause for the Great Depression. Many historians and economists believe many of F.D.R.'s policies led to worsening of The Great Depression.
