``We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. I say, after 8 years of the administration, we have just as much unemployment as when we started, and an enormous debt to boot.''

- Henry Morgentheau, Treasury Secretary under President Roosevelt, 1939

And yet, everyone swears up and down that of course you can spend your way out of a problem caused by overspending, and they point to the Great Depression as their big example.

It doesn't glorify the proletariat, or the fact that mother teat of government works the best. Nor does it show our minority brothers in a positive and better light, since they struggled so hard due to us white male's greed and bad decisions.

Mind you, Morgentheau was pretty far out there, just look up his plans for Germany after they won the war.
