    Re: Which party is more responsible for the state economy?

    Funny how one party or the other is blaming each other for causing...yadda, yadda, yadda. But the reality is that only two parties have been running government way before Pillsbury started making biscuits. What's this have to do with the price of tea in China?

    What's that old saying?, "If the right one don't get ya...the left one will." When you look at the history of "Composition of Congress" since the beginning...and add whatever party holds the White House - then look at all of the legislation that's created by all of the combinations - then you'll know the truth. The truth is - these parties have us by the balls. They know it. We know it. And life goes on.

    Like sex - it takes two to tango. Our government, regardless of the composition, has been tangoing their asses off at our expense. But, we gave them that power.

    It's really naive to believe one party or the other has brought us to our nation's woes. They are both guilt as hell. They can't wait for election time to make the voters believe that they made an competent choice. I suggest at election time - Just bend over and beg for the KY Jelly (without the gravel).

    How did the New Deal continue the depression?
    Facts would say no it didnt. Unemployment plumented once the New Deal was initiated.

    Employment #'s:

    Number unemployed in America:

    1929
    2.6 million

    1933
    15 million

    1935
    11 million

    1937
    8.3 million

    1938
    10.5 million

    1939
    9.2 million

    1940
    8 million

    I dont know how you say that continued the depression?
    And how did it tear up the constitution?

    You're kidding me, almost the entire history of modern US economics (meaning post-Depression) consists of Keynesian prescriptions. We don't really have any way to evaluate the alternative (referring to Austrian prescriptions), because they simply haven't really been implemented.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Re: Which party is more responsible for the state economy?

    to OP:

    Neither. Republicans want all the money, Democrats want to give it all away! Neither of the two parties lookout for the people that actually get them in office. Half the time they don't know the repercussions of what they are doing, all they care about is getting elected. It's like a popularity race on who can be set for life! Whatever happened to "a country by the people, for the people."

    The problem isnt parties...its the rich in both parties that buy influence for what benefits them...at the expense of everyone else...through their foundations and superpacs and lobbiests....all the things the mass's dont have

    Re: Which party is more responsible for the state economy?

    The question cannot be answered only figuring what you think you know today.

    The housing problems date back to 1977 when the Senate had 61 Democrats and the house had 292 Democrats.

    Carter was in the white house and this year 1977, they passed The Community Reinvestment Act which lead to the housing melt down we are still in today.

    The reason we are not in recovery in any portion of the economy is Obama knows as much about the economy as about Theoretical Physics, and that is a big ZERO.

    His waste it unsurpassed in world history and is equal only to his failed plans and projects.

    the picture that I've always used is that of the US economic actor - the worker, the small business owner, the venture capitalist; all of them pulling the cart of the economy along. then the Republicans under Bush came along and shot them in the knee. Down we went. Then, as we were struggling to get back up, Democrats under Obama came along and shot us in the face. and we've been pretty much flat ever since.
