Cross our hearts and hope to die, we believe in all these things. But we do not like the way the present administration is doing them. Just turn them over to us. We will do all of them, we will do more of them, we will do them better, and most important of all, the doing of them will not cost anybody anything’.

A completely corrupted system that renders the individual useless.

Ummm I don't know if I should go there - but - conservatism is not just skin deep - it is a frame of mind. In this frame of mind there is fear - of the unknown - of the untried - of different. There is also more then a little selfishness. Anyway lets just say these are not outgoing individuals. If this frame of mind is very pronounced it can be debilitating. Now combine that with access to money and power. Can you say global warming is a myth? That we have fabulous fossil fuel resources to keep us fat and wealthy? Just as 1 example. I mean this is what we have always done - no reason to stop now. Conservative. Huh.

They don't like to see non conservative ideas work so of course they attack one of the most loved presidents. He showed progressive thinking works.

because fdr was a socialist. among other things he tried to stick more judges ( 7 more) on the supreme court that would let him whatever he wanted.

he was a socialist. humanist? he put tens of thousands of american citizens in detention camps during WWII.American men, women and children.

What is with you people ? So many people on this site condemn people and label people
for a few specific actions and ignore the totality of the person.
Yes - FDR did some bad things - would America be better off without him?

Yup. And that's about as relevant as you can get. Irrefutable. Period. Waiting on private sector job creation right now is like Chris Christie drinking Jamba Juice twice a week and thinking he's gonna lose the weight by next spring. It's not happening bro! You need PX90.

And you would have done - What? The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and killed - slaughtered men women and children - in a sneak attack - in an undeclared war.

You would have done - what?

With the population incensed and in fear - with hate reaction spilling out all over.

You would have done - WHAT?

[-] -3 points by brudlo (-454) 7 years ago

so going by your logic, all muslims should be put into detention camps because muslims perpetrated the 9/11 attack against the USA. thousands of people were murdered. by the way , i didnt know that there were children at hickam field, or on the arizona or the west virginia. . 2338 servicemen killed, 68 civilians.

fdr 's policies delayed recovery. in fact they helped the depression to continue on.

[+] -8 points by brudlo (-454) 7 years ago

if WWII has not occured , the depression would have continued on. fdr was a socialist and his alphabet soup programs were the " i feel your pain" bs of his time. with all his programs people still starved, had no jobs, lost their homes.

your knowledge of history is worse than your spelling! Repitition of conservative cliches will not pass for intelligent thought in a sane world. That it does in America is a portent of doom.

so ww2 ended the depression - did the work fdr's programs only started. is that what you are saying? so ww2, a huge government spending program - is that what you are thinking we should embark upon - a huge government spending program to rebuild our infrastructure and create a renewable energy program.

[Removed]

[-] -2 points by brudlo (-454) 7 years ago

the necessity of war does not equate with discretionary spending. renewable energy? you mean the wasted hundreds of millions on solyndra? lightsquared? wind and solar are worthless. unless your laundering money through them for your friends and yourself.

[-] 2 points by flip (7101) 7 years ago

you have just stated that keynes was right! clearly what you consider necessary is not relevant. you have established the principle that government spending ended the depression. it will end this one also - now what we spend the money on is another question. the fact that you do not see the need for us to stop importing 12 millions barrels a day of oil shows some short sightedness to say the least. what is the cost of that per week - can you do the math - quite a drain on the economy no?

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 7 years ago

That's "what if" bullshit, put out by Heritage/CATO, or any number of other RW propaganda mills.

I do believe that's also claimed at stormfront and other NAZI leaning sites.........They didn't like getting their asses kicked.

Are you a NAZI sympathizer?

[-] 0 points by marvelpym (-184) 7 years ago

"Are you a NAZI sympathizer?"

please tell me you didn't actually ask that question.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 7 years ago

Are you too?

I'm just going by what he said.

Say it again, I'll ask it again.

[-] 1 points by marvelpym (-184) 7 years ago

Yes shooz, I am. You figured me out. I'm actually one of the few Jewish Nazi sympathizers in the world.

God, you're good. He didn't even come close to mentioning Nazis and you sniffed him out. I hope you are working in law enforcement or govt intelligence so your massive powers of deduction aren't going to waste.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 7 years ago

Wrong answer. It worked and would have resolved the great depression if the conserv didn't insist on slowing stimulus in '37!

So there!

[-] 1 points by JPB950 (2254) 7 years ago

Policies, as in more then one, what specific policies do you mean? It's thought by many economists that the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act, passed in 1930, certainly hindered recovery. Are there other specific laws or regulations you had in mind? I don't think you can say the public works projects caused the depression to be drawn out.

Not the same - not at all the same situation. A handful of terrorists compared to a Major Navel attack by a country.

You are not very good at presenting argument R U.

BTW - Who is the department of Homeland Security and the FBI and the local police keeping tabs on?

[-] -3 points by brudlo (-454) 7 years ago

a major belly button attack? hhs and the fbi are watching everyone, non muslims included. germans never attcked the usa , yet people who were of german decent were put into camps. . the govt never looked at the peole as individuals, they were rounded up soley based on race ( the japanese ) and ancestry ( the germans and italians).
