    It was.

    a period when the United States had the strongest and freest economy in the world and people from every nation were doing their best to emigrate there.
    Subjective at most. By today's standards the 1900s 20% unemployment rate would be abysmal and the 'freest economy' was strongly regulated by cartels, political parties and anti-union forces. You understanding of history is almost as weak as your standards for being an independent.

    That would be the sensible route but when the politicians promise something for free, with the idea that someone else will pay for it, the temptation for those with little knowledge of economics, or little interest in the future of their country, will find the idea difficult to resist.

    Not subjective at all. Here are some of the stats.List of regions by past GDP (PPP) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    What does me now living in Oklahoma have to do with anything? We don't, to my knowledge, have Sunday voting here, or early voting either.....I live very rural and remote, so have little interaction with the conservative majority....I like it that way....

    I'm just wondering how black folks in Oklahoma get along, since they have no voting rights protection.

    If any of this was actually true you'd just blame it on Bush or the GOP regardless
