>Also at this time anything I wrote about or to you guys I would like to apologize. I did not see your point and was quite upset about the post, and my fingers (not mouth this time) might have got the better of me!
No apology necessary at all, Iain! We all do that (I know I have a few times)... just a simple misunderstanding (not helped in any way by my probably confusing posts..hehe).
>N766AS- WWII was not the reason the US was pulled out of the depression, it was Rooselvelts committment to building projects like the Grand Culie Dam
It was TOO WWII that brought us out of the recession...I have only heard liberals say that Roosevelt's ABC programs (thank God none of them lasted long) pulled us out. Plain and simple: WWII ended the recession in the US of A. I could think of a million facts to support that argument...
>The only reason people are talking about a ression is Bush is saying there is one comming is so he can "save the US and look like the good guy".
Sorry, but the LEFT is saying a recession is starting and guess what? Its NOT that hard to see...
>The only way public opinion could be unified in a patriotic direction is if the United States was attacked directly, something which is definitely not a good thing.
Well, of course, no war is necessarily a good thing. But say the People's Republic decides (purely hypothetical) to launch an ICBM at the UK. You bet your ass the US is going to retaliate against someone who attacks the Queen! I believe that if ANY of our interests are attacked, the American people will have no problem retaliating- just look at what Clinton did! But you may be able to argue an attack on our interests is a direct attack on us, as well.
>What america needs is a total restructuring of its morals, values, and priorities
>Franklin D. Roosevelt, who helped bring us out of the Depression.
Where did you get your history lessons, Dustin? The public schools?
Roosevelt didn't bring us out of the depression...as I said many times before it was WWII and I have more than enough proof to back that up with. Of course, the schools would have us believe that Roosevelt was the good liberal that saved this nation from economic destruction...yeah right.
I admit, I, too, thought that FDR brought us out of the depression...until I educated myself outside
the public schools...hehe- but thats for another thread.
