Lessons from the Great Depression

08/27/2011

As election season looms, there are some candidate voices who seem to have a grasp on the issues the country faces and what needs to be done. Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock (www.richardmourdock.com) is attempting to unseat Senator Dick Durban. Under Mourdock’s leadership Indiana actually built up a cash surplus and saw their bond ratings achieve AAA status.

As we plow into times which may well resemble the Great Depression, there are lessons to be learned about how people got along and helped each other from those who lived through it. John interviews his father-in-law, George Crossan, whose ranching family lived through those difficult times. It’s an interesting look at life in western America during the Depression.

John’s boralogue combines observations from his recent road trip to the wreckage so many progressive socialist programs have left in their wake the last 60 years, and why so many are now collapsing of the their own unsustainable weight.
