Morgan Reynolds on Lincoln, FDR, War Myths, and 9/11
Morgan Reynolds joins the show to discuss Lincoln, FDR, war myths and the economy. We talk about the "Honest" Abe's lies that led to the War of Southern Independence, the causes of the Great Depression, FDR's failed domestic policies and his serial deceptions that dragged the country into the Second World War. Later we discuss the economy, the failure of Keynesian economics, 9/11 and the UFO phenomenon.
