    • What did he colonize? All of the land the US acquired was from the Spanish American war before his presidency, and even then that’s taking colonies from a European power. He created our national parks, busted monopolies, and was the greatest president of the 20th century

    • Teddy had economic policies similar to the far-ish left (most similar to Bernie) of today. He was also a white supremacist. I'm looking through these comments, and I can just tell that everyone's jumping on the bandwagon because they have no historical awareness of his actual policies or philosophy.
