    Prosperity for whom? Are you talking about Prosperity for the Government or Prosperity for the People because the way you plan on doing it your plan does not include the People.

    $To save the world I demand 1 trillion dollars.jpg

    Do you think that our Harvard Graduate--Community Organizer--most--Intellectual President of all time just figured out:

    That no one can BORROW and SPEND their way to PROSPERITY?

    Obama sure gave it one heck of a try though--:lol:

    you can't cut your way to prosperity, but you can fill the National Labor Relations Board with union goons who will piss and moan whenever a private sector company creates a job in a state Obama doesn't like

    Hmm--1920's---:lol: I assume you meant the 1930's? No it didn't work. You can read a book called the Forgotten Man--which will tell you that we got little spurts of employment gains during the 1930's with all the road and bridge work. But as soon as those projects were completed--those jobs were gone--and unemployment rose again. The ONLY thing that brought us out of the great depression was WW2.

    No, the depression that was 1919ish to 1921ish or something like that... Harding cut like a mother fucker and it just went away like predicted. Hoover spent in 1930's + and depend the depression and FDR took many of Hoovers ideas and destroyed a good ten years of tens of millions of peoples lives while never managing to get the country out of the depression. Oddly many people try and find ways to not give credit to Hrading and Coolidge while lying their credibility away trying to make FDR look like the savvier that based on history and facts, he never was.

    Nope. I meant the 1920s. Harding, followed by Coolidge, cut spending and cut taxes and escaped the Depression of 1920 in a very short period of time which was much deeper than the 1929 Depression.

    Hoover changed that policy, FDR continued Hoovers policy of government intervention. They had a 12 year depression.

    Coincidence? Is it a coincidence that government intervention now is prolonging the recession now?

    Absolutely not. History repearts itself.

    :lol:

    It's their policies that caused a collapse in the financial industry. Along with a ridiculous amount of misery in the working class ( There was no real middle class around that time ). Had it continued, the US may very well have become a Communist or Fascist state.
