Senator Huey P. Long of Louisiana was a populist member of the Democratic Party, believing that Franklin Roosevelt was not progressive enough with his New Deal policies. This book by Long, his “second autobiography,” laid out his plans if elected president in 1936. Long was assassinated in Louisiana in September 1935 and did not get a chance to challenge Franklin Roosevelt for the Democratic nomination in 1936. This work was published posthumously.
