Herbet Hoovers Speech "The New Deal"

Harley Theno's insight:

In his speech he does talk about the things causing all of the debt. He even talks about the governments problems with vetoes and many other money issues. He says that "I am taking up this issue because in this gigantic spending and this unbalanced budget is the most subtle and one of the most powerful dangers which has been set in motion by this administration." By that he means everything that we are doing to give people more money so they can buy things, we eventually never get the money handed out back, with interest or not. He mentions that no American will go hungry or starve by no fault of their own. Part of his plan to help out in the depression is taxation. Then he plans to get the U.S. into an inflation (a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money).

A Speech from Herbert Hoovers Election
"Challenge to Liberty"

 

Harley Theno's insight:

The speech talks about his "Challenge to Liberty" obviously. He talks about giving everyone freedom, and that this election is more than voting for a man, but voting on the direction which Americans will take. He addresses previous speeches he has made before, and quickly little phrases like "The spirit of liberalism is to vreate free men; it is not the regimentation of men". And in the  4th part of his speech he talks about the economic feil, he said he wants to see the peopels savings protected. Giving increasing employment to everyone. "We hold it can be done only through the engergizing force of competition", by that i'm sure he means the more competition the more employment their will be. And he talks about us needing a reform now, as long as men are greedy for money and power.
