SilkWizard thinks it is a consensus that anybody who opens a history book will see.
Here's what he had to say! "(Hes Amused at)The stimulus bill and anyone who defends it
Go read a history book, kiddos. Claiming that The New Deal got us out of the great depression is like stating that The Holocaust got us out of World War II.
...Wait, that doesn't make sense? It sure doesn't."
However... most Historians disagree with him. Hey though, why back up your inflammatory comments with support when your an objectivist who eats his own excrement for breakfast, am i right?!
http://eh.net/lists/archives/eh.res/feb-1997/0010.php My source, PhD Historians are polled, the ones presumably writing the history books Silkwizard alludes to that have a consensus agreeing with his position (he blatantly says that, but has no evidence and is wrong. Man watching Faux news messes with your brain)
To summarize from that evidence, after polling a number of PhD Historians about whether "Taken as a whole, government policies of the New Deal served to lengthen and deepen the Great Depression.":
73% Disagreed *SilkWizard is wrong!*
The questionnaire was sent to 88 historians PhD's of which 44% responded.
I both hate and love proving SilkWizard wrong all the time. It is freaking awesome.
He is obviously the type of person who if something is written in a book he takes it as fact, he believes the bull Ayn Rand talks about (the dickhead religion) and he logically assumes that if one book makes a claim it must be true, even though the consensus of Historians is overwhelmingly in the New Deal's Favor.
I dont need to throw opinions around when I can just focus on proving that moron wrong. Objectivists are retards.
