Warren Harding repelled the USA’s first dance with Communism ushered in by Woodrow Wilson..

Warren Harding figured it out in 1920...

Congress and the Executive Branch have lots to do.

So far they’re not doin’ it right..

Its been done before..

Harding cut the government’s budget nearly in half between 1920 and 1922. The rest of Harding’s approach was equally laissez-faire. Tax rates were slashed for all income groups. The national debt was reduced by one-third. The Federal Reserve’s activity, moreover, was hardly noticeable. As one economic historian puts it, “Despite the severity of the contraction, the Fed did not move to use its powers to turn the money supply around and fight the contraction.” 2 By the late summer of 1921, signs of recovery were already visible. The following year, unemployment was back down to 6.7 percent and was only 2.4 percent by 1923.

BTW..ole Warren ALSO fixed immigration...

Mr. Harding signed into law the Emergency Quota Act[3] which sought to control immigration following World War I and preserve the distinctive American culture by ensuring the majority of immigrants came from the historically compatible cultures of Northern Europe. This law aimed to bring wages of hard working Americans under control by limiting immigration to 3% of the 1910 census. It was followed on by a similar act in 1924, after Mr. Harding’s death.[4]

A Warren Harding prescription...if filled ...would ignite the afterburners on the US job machine and the economy. However DC would have to yield on a tremendous amount of power. Our job as We the to persuade them of the “utility” ..shall we say..of doing so. In all probability the same minds that made the mess...aren’t capable of the solution however.

BTW any takers that ‘Bammy couldn’t even tell you that Warren Harding was one of his predecessors in office?

Even more telling about what our betters in the RinoCracy think of a Constitutional President..

I’ve become a big “fan” so to speak of Harding.

A bit of corruption is his administration doesn’t change the fact that all but 2 IMO (Coolidge, Reagan) of his successors as President make him look like he belongs on Mount Rushmore. He’s certainly no where near “worst” if you are looking at it from the perspective of a conservative and not a liberal historian.

As for Lincoln, I’m not a big fan of some of his polices but he had about as good an excuse as exists with the Civil war. Terrible time but most historians think it was unavoidable.

You should have Woodrow Wilson and FDR’s picture’s up there Central_va. No comparison between Lincoln and those twerps.

Just the other day I replied to some sophomoric idiot’s blog post saying how Lincoln would be happy Obama is President. We should make an effort to put a stop to the far-left’s co-opting of Lincoln. When I was a kid I went to the Chicago Historical society and the bint giving the tour was talking about Lincoln and Douglas and said today their parties would be reversed. She worked in a Historical society despite having a middle schooler’s sense of history.
