It was their moral certitude that the excesses of the 1920's needed to be met with a tight monetary policy that the USA to the Great Depression. It was Hoover and Mellon's policies that led to the Great Depression. They caused a downward spiral to go into a death spiral by limiting credit and the money supply.

The role of the Federal Reserve Bank is to keep inflation and unemployment low. The responses of the Hoover administration and the Republican controlled Fed after the 1929 Wall Street crash led to the Great Depression. Their combined response led to deflation and magnified a recession into the Great Depression. US President Herbert Hoover, who took office in March 1929 six months before the Wall Street crash made bold statements in his inaugural address and gave a hint of his views on excessive speculation. He spoke of the world having 'reached a higher degree of comfort and security than ever existed before in the history of the world. However, the strong man must at all times be alert to the attack of insidious disease.

The Republican Party enjoys large government when they are in charge and champion small government when not. The Republican Party systematically champions those who 'fight' large government when they are not the party "in charge." Do people here remember Ruby Ridge? Ashamedly, many conservatives made Randy Weaver a 'hero.' Remember him? This so-called 'hero' of Newt Gingrich and the Republican Party in the 1990's, used his wife as a shield as he shot and murdered an FBI agent in Idaho. The incident at Ruby Ridge became an instrument for the Republican Party to gut and hollow out the FBI.

Many card-carrying Republicans here say FDR prolonged the Great Depression. How? Federal government spending was 10% of GDP in 1940, even with war build-up. And to those Republican here who say WWII got us out of the Great Depression; you are Keynesians my dear friends. Please check out; http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/year1940_0.html#usgs302 Change the second column to "percent GDP" and you will notice that federal spending is 10% of the Gross Domestic Product.
