As much as many liberals point to FDR’s New Deal as the force that pulled us out of the Great Depression, the truth is that it wasn’t until we entered the war that our Depression truly came to an end. Yes, the New Deal did a great many things that helped us along the way, as does the stimulus package, but there were failures along the way as well.
