FDR's policies prolonged Depression by 7 years, UCLA economists calculate | UCLA

Why do so many think EVERYTHING is absolute?

ALL Presidents were BOTH good and bad.

FDR probably did some good things and he did some bad things.

The "Them vs. Us" attitude only allows black and white.

Keep in mind people were paid for their gold, it wasn't stolen.
They were paid pennies on the dollar for their gold. But ok because the Fed did it that makes it not theft.

"National Socialism" isn't socialism like you think it is. It's a state totalitarianism. And Hitler didn't take over the industries, he just used the industrialists. They made huge profits, on paper anyway, throughout the war.
