President Obama said the recession ended last year. In his mind and technically speaking it did, but where is the economic prosperity that normally follows? The President is a Progressive and the poor economy is the right choice for a Progressive, a poor economy breeds more poor people and allows Government to help. Progressives want everyone to turn to the Government for help. Progressives also hang their hat on a stupid, false economic theory, still taught in our schools, called Keynesian Economics but I call it VooDoo Economics. I came across an article that sums it up pretty good, the author is Peter Ferrara and his article is right here. enjoy.
