    In all seriousness I think some of these policies would be great. The shortsighted viewpoint only sees this as taking from the haves and giving to the have nots as though it is merely a shallow redistribution scheme meant only to create dependents. In the long term these kinds of things build strong, confident societies that increase and diversify in functionality thus relieving the burden of welfare, of redistribution through a more natural, market driven balance in which power is restored to a more egalitarian structure.
    Since when? You should read history a bit more often.

    Yeah its Keynesian, the stuff we did back when the economy worked really well for everyone. Then we decided to do Reaganomics and 40 years later the U.S. is exactly how they wanted it.

    There are other countries in the world ya know, study the Scandinavian countries and let me know what you find. Also look at the 50's, 60's economic policies before we switched gears.

    Keynesian? Lol! You do realize we have never actually practiced Keynesian economics, right? Why not look up what Keynes had to say about FDR's policies before opening your mouth about how great Keynesian economics is.

    You're a silly little man, aren't you? The fifties or sixties can't possibly be used to support your policies. Try your argument in an environment a bit more balanced, eh?

    Wha? Where did you go to school? Didn't you say before you are really old? You don't even remember what happened back then?

    Keynesian economics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Keynesian economics served as the standard economic model in the developed nations during the later part of the Great Depression, World War II, and the post-war economic expansion (1945–1973),

    I'm curious, where the hell do you get your ideas from? Do you just make up history in your head?

    You should really look up what Keynes had to say and follow that up with a short little study on Keynesian economics. Keynesian economics isn't a tool for permanent growth, but a stop gap in a down turn with the use of work programs. You were then supposed to cut spending to deal with the debt that was ensured by the spending. Guess what we never did?

    1. We didn't limit it to what Keynes said.
    2. We made it permanent.
    3. We never cut spending to deal with the debt.

    FDR in fact pissed off Keynes for failing to follow his plan.

    If you want to prove your policies are best you can't look towards a period where pretty much anything would work. I know liberals/progressives love the fifties to say how great their policies are, but it doesn't prove anything.
