If Kennedy had been elected to a second term and expanded his Civil Rights Policies, his Space programs, and clarified his position on Vietnam, he might have become as great as FDR.
Nobody can be worse than Magnum, believe me.

FDR was a liar who stole people's gold and replaced it with worthless paper currency.

Was a nice plan and it did help. My only gripe about it is he stole money instead of appropriating it properly at the same time cutting taxes thereby starting the ball rolling toward our economic demise. And you know this is true, mlurp.

Yeah, right. The New Deal rebuilt America’s infrastructure with programs such as the Civil Works Administration, which placed the United States in a strong position once ww2 came.

Actually no, the passage of the Gold Reserve Act of January 30, 1934 took us off the gold standard and put us on the gold reserve standard, sign into law by FDR.

In my opinion the worst thing Reagan did as President was the Creation and implementation of his " Trickle Down Economics" That Republicans in Washington have used To drive the country into the ditch to support the top 1 % of the Country. Reagan may not have started it, But he made the Idea popular, so popular that Republicans are still hammering away at gutting the Nations revenues at the expense of the Middle Class.

They tried it in the 20's and it led to the Great Depression...

Reagan did it in the 80's and tripled the national debt, and G.H Bush Double that .

George W tried it in the 2000's and led us back into the ditch and we're still digging our way out.

Reagan definitely left his mark on history, a big brown S*** Stain called Supply Side Economics.

We were off the gold standard long before then. Actually, if you go back to the pre-Civil War era then of course you'll find that we were at best a bi-metal system and thus never truly a gold standard.
