Crap You Believe

You actually believe this stuff:

FDR ended the Great Depression with extensive regulation and high spending.

Democrats care about the poor and non-whites, not corporations. Republicans care about corporations, not the poor or non-whites.

If you tax at lower rates, you get less revenue. If you raise taxes, you get more revenue.

Republicans are the party of No. They have no policy ideas.

Democrats pushed the Civil Rights Act through against Republican opposition.

Barack Obama is an intellectual who is very smart.

The Democrats under Reid, Pelosi and Obama saved us from sliding into a depression. The evidence is that they said so. That unemployment skyrocketed after their stimulus program - which they promised would reduce unemployment - is not evidence to the contrary.

Social Security and Medicare are great programs, not ponzi schemes. They just need to be funded properly with higher taxes on the wealthy.

The Democrats' spending will get us out of the recession. It's several trillion, and it's been two years with no results but we need to be patient.

It is not the case that the Secretary of the Treasury said this in 1939:
We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises ... After eight years of this Administration, we have just as much unemployment as when we started. ... And an enormous debt to boot!
You actually believe all that crap. What the hell is the matter with you?
