    In the lead up to the Great Depression which started with the 1929 crash there were years of completely Republican government headed by a president who insisted the market would take care of its self. The market did what it wanted and the people suffered drastically.

    The people revolted and put in a democratic president and congress when doing nothing was killing Americans.

    Then the econony was stimulated by a democratic government and the people recovered.


    In the lead up to the Great Recession which started in 2006 with the with fall off in housing starts and massive home forecloseurs there was years of completely Republican government Headed by a president who insisted the market would take care of its self. The market did what it wanted and people suffered greatly.

    The people revolted and put in a democratic congress and president when doing nothing was harming the American people.


    The economy was stimulated by a democratic government and the economy began to recover.


    This is why certain people hate higher education and smear any journalist that tells the facts without waiting to see how the republican party wants them edited before they report.

    History has spoken folks and the idea that there are "Magic Markets" has been decimated.

    Your ideas have failed repetedly in history.

    Get some new ideas.

    If you actually look back, the worst years of the great depression were 1933-34 and 1938.

    And if you read contemporary accounts of the campaign of 1932, the big issue wasn't the depression, the big issue was prohibition.

    In 2008 stocks began to crash when it became obvious that 0bama was going to win, and folks knew what he was.

    In 1933 the really big smash began when folks began reading what Roosevelt was all about. Then the began to run on the banks.


    This topic really belongs in Ravi's little list, but I just like playing in it.

    And really, it doesn't matter what party is in power, what matters is the policy. And Fed policy both in 1929 and worse in 1933 and with less justification in 2008 was stupid. But we can't vote on the fed.

    You problem is that those years were years in which the government was completely controled by Rs. President, house and senate. Except the the senate in the 72nd congress had gone Dem.

    The lead up to both massive economic messes had been created under entirely R government hell bent on the "Magic Market".
