another post about some shit only i care about

"when roosevelt did this, he put our country into a great depression...he tried to borrow and spend, he tried to use the keynesian approach, and our country ended up in a great depression. that's just history."
- congressman steve austria on fdr being responsible for the great depression (...nope.)

UG FUCK okay this is why we should elect politicians based on intelligence and ability and rather than personality or if they've ever been divorced or any of the other completely asinine reasons why voters make their choices. i don't even like fdr but come the fuck on. the years don't even match up.
