Ep. 142 - The Truth About the Great Depression

Anyone educated in the public school system in the United States has been force-fed a series of lies about the Great Depression. In this episode, we set the record straight while pointing out how the Left-wing in America are a one-trick pony. They make the same arguments today as they did almost 100 years ago!

Three myths about the Great Depression are examined:

Myth #1 - Herbert Hoover and his free market laissez-faire economic policies caused the depression.

Myth #2 - FDR and the New Deal kept the depression from getting worse.

Myth #3 - World War II cured the depression.
