The Difference Between March 4, 1933 And January 20, 2009

There is a major difference between the economic mess of March 4, 1933 that Franklin D. Roosevelt inherited from Herbert Hoover and the economic mess of January 20, 2009 that Barack Obama inherited from George W. Bush-MONEY! When Roosevelt took over in 1933 the United States had money and was not broke from years of budget deficits. In 2009 when Obama took over the opposite was true. George W. Bush broke the bank!

Franklin D. Roosevelt had money to spend to bring this country out of depression. Thus he created programs such as the C.C.C., W.P.A., the Tennessee Valley Authority and others. He was able to create jobs to put what was needed the most in Americans pockets-MONEY! That way they could afford the little things in life such as food and shelter. Little, at least in the eyes of the rich people who controlled America.

In 2009 Barack Obama is faced with a double-edged sword. The country is in depression and is broke. As long as the President attempts to create make work programs like FDR the further this country will go in the hole financially. There will come a point when the interest on the debt alone will surpass this country's ability to pay. Then we will suffer a financial meltdown the likes of which this world has never seen. When this country goes down the world's economy will go down with it. If the President does nothing to create jobs then he will be viewed as heartless like Herbert Hoover was in 1933. What to do?

For the past 40 years starting with Richard Nixon's "ping-pong diplomacy" with China we have had a succession of Presidents who have been selling out this nation's financial interests to the Chinese. American jobs have been lost to China in large numbers. Go to Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree and almost any home improvement store and look at the labels on their goods. You will see "Made In China" on almost all of the items sold. These are items once made in this country. NAFTA, CAFTA and the Chinese have taken all the jobs nearly. No jobs means no tax base.

If this country would retrieve the jobs that have been lost through all of these "fair trade deals" there would be enough jobs and therefore enough of an income tax base in this country to sustain the programs that have been put in place in the past 60+ years. Bring home American jobs, buy American and let the rest of the world go to hell! Especially the Commies who control China. The Communists lost the Cold War but are trying to win the financial war and bury this country. God Bless America!
