Always.

From 1919 until 1933 Republicans controlled both the house and the senate. They also held the presidency from 1921 until 1933.

The great depression followed.

From 1995 until 2007 Republicans controlled both the house and the senate(with a two year tie in the senate, VP breaks ties, he was Republican). They also held the presidency from 2001 until 2009.

The 'great recession' followed.

President Calvin Coolidge believed in LOW TAXES for the wealthy and SMALL GOVERNMENT for everyone.
As did the Republican president before him, Warren G. Harding, although he ironically used public works(government jobs) as a means to stop the recession that was forming after World War 1.

Then theres poor ole Herbert Hoover, who followed Ole Calvin, who gets alot of blame for the depression even though it was Calvins policies (that he continued to follow the first years of his presidency) that really caused the crash. Mr Hoover attempted to throw some government money at the problem in his last year in office but it was to little too late and his time in office and name are forever tarnished.

Did you know that in 1995 when Republicans took control of the house and senate, it was only the second time in our nations history? The first being before the depression, as described above.

Should we leave it up to coincidence? Or would it be better to just accept their policies simply DO NOT PRODUCE PROSPERITY for anyone but the wealthy?

I'll let you decide, but history is pointing the way!
If the Republicans idea of change is going back to 1921, I'll pass!!

Funny that there is a video on You Tube, that was documented of what Some of the most highest influences of the GOP..Republicans that come out to say completely they do not trust Mitt Romney. Discussing the flip flop statments and playing on both sides of the fence. But that really doesn't matter at this point. What people better pay close attention is that he wants America to send "ARMS" to Syria and with that will also be send TROOPS, Are you really wanting to keep funding and sending aid to other countries when WE CAN"T AID OURSELVES. Are you ready to send your children and grand children into War? I am not talking overseas, I am talking the future war in the United States a civil war between RICH and POOR? It will come friends if the CONGRESS don't stop the games just to make a point they did not or will not work to help America until Obama is not President and the Republican Party can RUN OVER AMERICA. It is all about Republican Party making lame excuses why there was never a budget, why they under the table are not interested in the 47% as Mitt Romney himself stated, except now to flip flop and want to say it was a mistake to have made such statement. WHY? The "WHY" is so they can woo to get your vote, but do you trust the Republican Run Congress to actually give a crap about the 47% after they get your vote? They sure haven't for the last 4 years, so why expect it in the future. The Trueth of the Matter, they haven't given a crap about the 47% of the American People for years. Go ahead and Vote for the RICH, Mitt and his Wealthy Freinds will love your vote all the way to the bank.

YOU better go back to the late 70's and 80's when The GATES were OPEN for Overseas to take the MADE IN AMERICA out of this country. Oh sure you think the economy was fixed, but actually it was the start of what America is today...broken and brow beat by the effects. Now Ask MITT ROMNEY and his Wealthy Buddy System how they made their riches... it wasn't by MADE IN AMERICA!

americans have got to get off the "fear train" and give this country a chance to get started in the right direction. military jobs doesnt mean "war" it means strength and nobody is gonna take your gov.check away. if there is some welfare reform it will be for the better by NOT encouraging government dependency in our young people but by offering oppourtunities and a future NOT an easy way out... afterall thats really what young people want they only settle for less because the options arent really there.

I Have worked over 30+ years, raised my family and pay my share of taxes. At no time in my lifetime have I ever drawn an Unemployment check, Welfare check or Food Stamps. I raised my children as a single parent, owned 5 homes and right now 0% in debt. AND I AM FEMALE...and my father was in the military 33 years. There is 2 Parties Democrat and Republican and they both lie.

Hate to tell you this but GOVERNMENT FLOPPED on the PEOPLE along time ago, way before the last 4 years. Remember Obama inherited the mess from the Presidents before him. Even if Romney becomes President, this country will still be trying to fix the mess inherited by GOVERNMENT BEFORE OBAMA. The People need to demand that the wages and benefit packages to Senate, Congress,Vice President and President be froze. No More Giving ourselves a raise, no more Freebee's and perks. That would save billions over the next 10 years. Put their azzes on a tight budget.

The Government should release the report on the wages and benefits of all the Past Presidents, Vice Presidents, Congressional past leadership and Senate past leadership "that is being paid" presently in benefits for the last 50 years, that should be an eye opener as to why there is Government WASTE. Explain why The People should be paying the benefits for Past Elected Officials? That is like paying a past Mayor for life just because he/she was Mayor. That is Government Welfare for the Wealthy. The people have got to take control over the Senate and Congressional leaders and that starts by demanding freeze on the perks and benefits that is an accumulated debt to the tax payers. They have not passed a budget that is law, so they should not have a "free reign on spending for thier personal living expense paid by the people. Cut off the unlimited bank credit cards for thier pleasure.

Bush and Obama both want the economy to fail! It's called One World Government...it's coming! Just wait...the U.N. will start imposing world taxes in the near future. You'll laugh at me now, but watch and see.

Not just Bush and Obama, the complete Government run group of Wealthy have control of the People. Tinkering now to the chess game of who will win or who will lose, is nothing to who will live or who will die. It is the plan.

Money is all politics is about now.
It's gotten to be taken out.
Citizens United is helping to destroy this country.
We need to go back to money caps on campaigns and make lobbying illegal.
Both partys are corrupt, but its clear which one of two evils is going to get my vote. Its not the guy who made money off of inheritence and loading other companies with debt while running away with loan money, I can tell you that much.
Its easy to destroy something, I need a president who can create things.
Sad these two groups control the elections, literally, because it means we will never get a viable third party. I personally think we need 4 partys to even it out, force a coalition government.
