comment Did Roosevelt's New Deal lift the U.S. out of the depression or did it actually prolong the Depression and cripple American capitalism?
@pugsville - I've updated the question, but the answer is "yes; that is another astonishingly stupid action we need to credit to Roosevelt."

comment Have American writing styles changed between the Civil War and Today?
I'm always uncomfortable with questions that rely on subjective impressions. I'm further uncomfortable with questions that ask for validation of a thesis. I'm still more uncomfortable with questions that don't match the title, but if I copy the question to the title, I think the meaning changes significantly.

comment Why does the United States keep using “old” date representations and imperial system, while being in the minority?
I think the real question is "Why is the cost of standardization high? What are the factors driving the cost of migration to standards?" - and I'm not sure this is a history question. Economics.SE perhaps?
