    So with all this talk of fixing our economy I am kind of outraged with the fact that Obama will inevitably grow our government to astronomic proportions. I hope that if he uses government work to increase the economy that they will be short contracts without the institution of new agencies or the expansion of current agencies. I also hope that the debt the country will take for doing such will at least pay off in the future. Build roads and infrastructure so that we will at least have something to prove from all of our government economic boosts. Bailing out private business will not give long-term economic help and only burden the government with more debt and nothing to show from it...

    Obama's New New Deal is only going to prolong and worsen our situation the same way the original New Deal did during the Great Depression.

    Exactly, it wont be a measure of strength and it wont promote new growth in the economy. It will just prolong it.

    I thought it was when the government decided it was going to "pull back" and balance the budget is when the economy went further south under roosevelt?

    Is this revisionist history of some sort kevin?

    NOooooooooooo... Hoover/Roosevelt's intervention, isolationist 'Progressive Fiscal Policy' dramatically deepened the 29 recession, prolonging it and turning it into a global depression.

    CATO has some wonderful work proving this every way it can be stated.

    More conservative bullshit. It was only when Roosevelt listened to the right and changed course that the shit got worse. When he went back to his original course, the economy improved. Shit, how the right wing talking points take a life of their own and become their truth.

    Reagan was full of shit when he said that government was the problem and not the solution. Another nice sound bite like the one about the black welfare queen with the cadilac.

    Government and private industry are both the answer. It's a fucking centrist thing.:lol:

    Not sure if you guys have noticed, but the Government is going to grow no matter who is in office cause no one has the cahonies to actually cut wasteful programs.
