I would have to disagree with you that FDR pulled the U.S. out of the great depression. WW2 pulled the U.S. out of the Great Depression and FDR began the socialization of our country. He laid the ground work for social security and welfare and unemployment insurance. He also rapidly expanded our cental government and national debt. Sometimes giving people what they want is not always the best thing for them.
There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill
