Ron Paul on FDR, "He just continued the policies of Hoover."

That's certainly a new idea. "So how far back would you go, Coolidge?" "No, how about Jefferson." Sure, and we'll go back to farming with mules and having virtually no industry. Oh, yeah, and disease. Disease killed off so many people that the rest didn't have to starve all the time. Wonder what the over-all survival rate per live birth was in 1795?

No, if one knows history

It is well known that FDR did continue Hoover's policies (after bashing Hoover during the campaign for NOT doing anything)
I find it hard to believe that you are admitting that Ron Paul (Crazy Troofer) knew something that you didn't

I'm not sure

of why there may be a current FDR-Ron Paul topic ( I avoid the goof like the plague)but it certainly is NOT new scholarship in proposing that FDR continued Hoover's poor economic policies.

An aide to FDR (Rexford Tugwell)stated so.
