The Brass Standard

Clinton's speech was the perfect illustration of hatred, the theme of every Democrat campaign since the slaveholders started political parties and partisanship. "More than any other" implies there was another administration involved. But there wasn't. For 8 years Bush-43 tried to get the racialist amendments to the Community Reinvestment Act repealed. But Democrats like Barack Obama filibustered their repeal in the Senate, and wouldn't bring it up for a vote when in majority (3 years, 7 months and some). The party has caused every recession and every depression in American history, and every significant war as well. It's time for them to be investigated under the RICO Act and prosecuted for their actions like the crime syndicate they are.

An Economic 'Plan'?

The Dems promised an end to all sorts of tariffs and imposts and liquor taxes (as usual with Dems, it almost always comes down to buying votes thru personal corruption) in exchange. They tricked people by ending thte voluntary nature of our tax system and the same year they ended the gold backed dollar in 1913, creating the Federal Reserve Board. Those 2 brought back slavery to the U.S., but now for all. Your survival is at the whim of the political class. As for the Great Depression, it didn't start until after Dems tripled tax rates after winning Congress in 1930. Reagan still inherited worse, and it was over before 1982 began. The deflation, though, took longer to end, and govt. economic data never grasps deflation -- see 2008.

Its important to clearly distinguish action from inaction. Reagan fired hundreds of thousands of federal employees by late summer 1981. Tip O'Neil & fiends blocked the tax cut until August when renegade Democrats in the House joined with Republicans and passed the tax cut which was somewhat similar to the cuts Reagan won his landslide promoting. But they demanded a 3 year implementation period in the House-Senate conference, which slowed the recovery from what was history's worst depression. Harding too ran on tax cuts. The Democrats had promised leading up to 1912-13 that their income tax would never rise above a rate of 5%, and would never apply to anyone with income below $1 million (> $300 million today). It hit 72% during WWI.

The Great Tax Divide

By the way, both tax rate increases mentioned in ADR. Sowell's column caused a recession in the same year they were adopted. The 1990 increase also had huge regulatory attacks added to it, which finally killed the golden goose which was the Reagan boom. 105 months straight of growth under Reagan's economy. 2 very deep recessions under Clinton. 90 months of growth under Bush-43. 3 months until late April 2009 under the Uncle Twit.

The facts: Every federal statistic can be, and has been, modified for political purposes. The original stats are designed to confirm Democrat assumptions, and, since the Lyndon Johnson administration, any succeeding administration can change statistics going back up to 80 years. That means Ronald Reagan's 28 million new jobs at the highest constant dollar pay growth rate in history were modified by Bill Clinton down to 26 million, and then by Obama down to 24 million. It also means the more than 33 million formerly employed before Obama entered the WH are now called fewer than 16 million. The approx. 5 million new entrants in the labor pool are ignored. And the real inflation rate well above 8.5% is ignored and called 2%.

You're right, but reasoned, factual argument never convinces a moral idiot. Slavery has been the religion of Democrats for 220 years, and they went to war against the United States to defend it, back when there were still men in the party. To the myth worshipper: He's going to cut the extra $1 trillion a year in servile state bribery/vote-buying. You'll have to work to get your handouts.

The trip was paid for entirely by AIPAC, the American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee. The FBI became an arm of the Democrat Party crime syndicate in order to cover up Clinton's treason and bribery scandals, among other high crimes, and unaccountably was not corrected by Bush afterward because he apparently thought getting along with the witch Barbara Boxer by taking her terrible suggestion for FBI Director would somehow ease the Dems' partisanship.
