Remove the burden of government Restore the Constitution, rule of law Limit the power of the Federal Reserve, regulatory agencies Stop redistributing wealth
It was my great good fortune to be a son of depression parents. My mother and father were born in the early 1920s. They were observant, sensitive, thoughtful parents who took the time to tell stories. They reflected on and spoke of their early years often to their sons, sharing the hopes and fears of their upbringing as we grew up ourselves. They showed us how to observe the world around us. One set of grandparents were loyal Democrats, the other staunch Republicans. These were tremendous gifts for this future historian. I grew up in the 1950s and 1960s, but through the stories I heard I knew what it was like to grow up in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. My father and my uncles served in World War II, so I read everything I could get my hands on about the war because they wouldnt talk about the war very much. My parents lived a frugal lifestyle carried over from their days as children and teens in the dark days of the depression of the 1930s. So I began to read widely to understand how such a national calamity and such a brutal war could have happened. I wanted to know how my parents came to be the way they were, and how my world came to be.
Impossible. If we were in the middle of a depression, the news media would have told us. /s
If a depression occured and the new york times didnt report it, did it happen?
Free Traitors have re-written history and so now the real cause of the Great Depression was not what everyone learned in school up until 1990 but an obscure trade bill called Smoot-Hawley. /sarc
It was a depression years ago.
Now we’re in something worse than that. We’ll need a new word for it. I propose “fedcession”.
Not yet. I believe it is coming soon.
