It took a war to get us out of that depression, can we afford another one?

It wasn't really WWII. It was:
1. the fact that at war's end, the US was the sole industrial powerhouse left standing
2. FDR had assumed room temperature before it ended, so the New Deal was allowed to die off.

You are right. It wasn't FDR's NEW Deal that did it. In fact historians say it was the NEW Deal that kept the depression going. BTW Shovel Ready Jobs? More of a continuation of new deal type jobs. Road construction crews, "On the move" living in work camps. That is Obama's game plan, and if one listens to the likes of Cass Sunstein, it won't be Mr. or Ms White America working on those road gangs. There are criteria that must be met and they won't meet them.
