Explain.

No, it will not be implemented, at least not as long as the Progressives, Keynesians, and The FED can stop it. That alone should make you wonder.
I don't have to wonder that most of you don't have a clue what Keynesian economic entails.

It doesn't bother you that he left the scene and didn't report it for 10 hours?

People were starving and he promised 'a chicken in every pot' and people believed him. Then there was that incident in Dec 41 which caused people to buy their own chickens.

No, that was Hoover that promised that.

A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage

Franklin Delano Hoover, I guess. Easy to confuse the two.

Truman and LBJ both got hammered in New Hampshire in 1952 and 1968 respectively and thus decided to pull out.

No. In 1968 Johnson beat McCarthy by 7%. Not a hammering by McCarthy but disappointing for an incumbent President which ultimately forced Johnson to not seek reelection.

New Hampshire primary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Kefauver did beat Truman in 1952.

Exactly. There is a reason very few economics professors teach Austrian economics.

That's an entirely different crime than murder, isn't it?

The CCC was a great idea. It was a way to improve the infrastructure of the US, as well as giving us some great lodges in national parks, all while giving unemployed men and woman much needed work.
Too true! My father-in-law, who would be 102 if still alive, was in the CCC. He developed a life-long love of camping from being in the CCC. He was one of the hardest workers I have ever known, too.

If the Depression went on a little longer b/c of some of Roosevelt's social policies (and 7 years is a real stretch b/c the Depression was about 12 years from the stock market crash to Pearl Harbor, and Roosevelt was president for about 9 of those years), his policies also helped a lot of people along the way.
