For those who did not live the 1930’s we bring you back to yesteryear. The 1920’s were roaring, but the reset button was hit in the ’30s. FDR rushed through all kinds of stuff; Works Public Administration hit the board in 1935. This was a last ditch effort to rescue the economy which sank quicker than a lump of coal down an elevator shaft. The New Deal was not as advertised as the economy was sinking into the 2nd phase of depression.
Preceding the WPA was the New Deal. The New Deal was a series of programs and projects instituted during the Great Depression by President Franklin D. Roosevelt that aimed to restore prosperity to Americans. When Roosevelt took office in 1933, he acted swiftly to stabilize the economy and provide jobs and relief to those who were suffering. Over the next eight years, the government instituted a series of experimental New Deal projects and programs, such as the CCC, the WPA, the TVA, the SEC and others, that aimed to restore some measure of dignity and prosperity to many Americans. Roosevelt’s New Deal fundamentally and permanently changed the federal government’s relationship to U.S. citizens.
As noted above the NEW GREEN DEAL will accomplish the same objective as the New Deal. Government will become your master, you will become the rower on the green steamship as it heads to nowhere. Money will be printed with abandon. But sooner than many of the pundits can think, the galley will be flooded, pumps giving out, those in steerage drowning on their own mucus. First and second class passengers will be praising the green swamp water until it covers their shoes. Only then will they realize that they have been flim-flammed once again by BIG GOVERNMENT.
Remember this, the New Deal turned out to be a bad deal, LBJ’s Great Society turned out to be a Welfare Society and War on Poverty was an abysmal failure. Obama’s Change We Can Believe In turned into just hollow words.
