I have to say the Roosevelts since progressivism got its real impetus from Theodore and then FDR got it going stronger and today it is influencing us so much. Yep, I say the Roosevelts are it.

The Rothschilds aren't American and I fail to see what influence they've had on America.

In terms of how they've managed to influence, if not direct, the Neo-Conservative's, I can think of a few families which have managed to spread themselves around the country, which increases their influence:

Rockefeller's: They've been politically active in New York, West Virginia, Arkansas and Wyoming.

Bush's: Connecticut, Texas and Florida.

Romney's; Michigan and Massachusetts.

Kennedy's: Massachusetts, New York, Maryland.

Clinton/Rodham's: Illinois, Arkansas, New York.

One should wonder WHY they exported their political activities from their original seat of power and influence.
