Political poll

 Group admin 
DON'T everybody start getting mad at other people on this, I know for some it is a touchy subject. This poll is about what you guys think about the Arizona Illegal immigration law. I am all for it. I think that illegal immigrants are treated better than American citizens at times, because they have their kids sent to school with American tax dollars (which they themselves don't have to pay), and if they go to a hospital and they don't have insurance, they still get to go. When Americans go to a hospital, and we don't have insurance, we have to pay. It just makes no sense, and Obama and the L.A. council seem to like it. I say, at times I think I could run this country better than these ignorant people. Well, there's my reason, (plus an added little rant) so now it's your turn. No hateful or racist comments please.

At first I was against it because all Mexicans and like people were to get pulled over. I have heard more and I am growing to agree with it. I personally do NOT like Obama. He is disastrous to the country. However, Bush or the last 4 or 5 presidents were not the best either.

Well, he is a democrat. I'm not a democrat and that's why I mostly am critical of him.

Ill agree with the majority, thats what i do most in life. But i do agree, i think that you have to prove youll be useful in that country BEFORE your alowed in. In the UK we have the same problem with easten Europeans, so are good though and it makes financial sence to employ them. But i dont really take much notice of american politics, do the political-party-that-share-the-flag-thats-on-the-dukes-of-hazzard-car still exist? That may sound like a stupid question to you.

Ya, that's what is SUPPOSED to be happening, but hey, it's the government we're talking about here, and right now they are so tied up about fixing the economy with higher taxes. I want Reagan!

Actually, I beg to differ. Under F.D.R., the American Government was driven into even deeper debt than before, and although it provided temporary relief, later americans paid for it, thus began the beginning of American debt in the government.

I'm sorry but Reagan had did not have the new deal, he had a recession tried to get us out and did not address it until about two months after it started. He did not boost our economy like F.D.R.. F.D.R. was such a good president he knew in order to truly pull out of the recession we needed a good war. WWII. He pulled us out of that too.

There is a debate about the new deal, and now many people are turning against it. I don't have a grudge against F.D.R, it's just that Ronald Reagan lowered the taxes and the economy actually got better because people had more money to spend on other things, which helped the businesses. And again, F.D.R. did boost the economy, but it turned out to be a fake. A recession happened right after the Great Depression. Look it up, I found out a lot by looking in my history textbook. Then again, I have a private school textbook, perhaps it is different. ;)

In that case, are you suggesting that war is good? Or do you admit that it was the war that saved FDR, not his ridiculous amounts of government programs? The way I see it, either way it goes does not seem to paint a very good picture of FDR...

I'm not saying war is good, I'm just saying that WWII got America out of a dump.

Then if you agree that the war was what saved America, not the amount of government programs that FDR instituted, I must say that FDR simply knew how to take advantage of such opportunities, which IMO, doesn't necessarily make him a great president... good perhaps, not great... no hard feelings ? :)

Imma give mah own History lesson based on what I know off hand, K? Here it is: Debt is something that as a nation, we cannot avoid. When the Depression was in it early stages, the government responded to it much in the way that we responded to the onset of our current financial quagmire; a hastily response that was not thought through entirely. When the depression hit, Hoover decided to use what he called 'Trickle down economics'. Basically, money was handed out to banks in the hopes that these banks would distribute the money to businesses and then onto the community. That didn't work. Another blunder Hoover made was in passing the Hawley-Smoot Tariff, which raised the cost of American made goods that other nations would buy. Taking offence to this, Those nations raised their tariffs, putting us farther down the hole. When the next elections came around, people compared the messy slate of Hoover's to the clean slate of FDR's, and decided to go with FDR. FDR tackled the depression in a different way. Instead of working from the top, he decided to start reversing the problem from the bottom; helping out the average American in what is now called his first 100 Days. That's were all of his programs came in. These programs were designed to put people back to work (mainly on construction of infrastructure and roads.) A notable product of his programs was the Hoover dam, which provides power to much of the west coast. FDR even put a 90 day freeze on all bank activity so that they could get their assets straight. If i'm correct, he brought about social security to the country; a program that insures people a certain amount of money in the event that something bad happens. Even though these programs cost a lot, FDR realized that in order to get out of a rut, the only way to do so was to spend out of it. Odd concept, ain't it? These programs also had a psychological effect on people, who could now see that there was a way out, and they could see that the government was doing something to help its people. FDR himself made a point of encouraging this effect. His 'Fire-side chats' were broadcast on the radio for all to hear. In these chats, FDR himself explained what was happening, and what he was doing, thus making people aware of what was going on. End of lesson one.
