    socialists and other losers want a big nanny state government to give them the property of others. They want a big federal government because if individual statess tried to engage in too much soak the rich nonsense, said states would go bankrupt. The country would have been far better off if FDR had died shortly after taking office or have been defeated in 36.

    Funny story! Someone actually did that a while back. I don't feel like searching for it myself, but you're free to find the idiocy if you want.

    delusional is to think that we needed the remedies FDR foisted on us. He also hung Pearl Harbor out to dry

    Ask the survivors of Pearl Harbor who won't meet with their Japanese counterparts to this day. At least the interned survived our concentration camps--Japan and Germany not so much .

LBJ may have been able to stop it but he was victimized by the public policy inertia created by capitalists and their stooges in government. He certainly deserves some blame but a lot of it is because he wasn't a miracle worker.
