More proof that liberals are better for economic growth.

Thanks to brucenstein for this awesome graph.

Notice how the decades with the highest growth (the 1940s and the 1960s) were also great decades for liberalism. The 1940s gave us FDR and his evil New Deal, along with Truman. The 1960s gave us JFK, LBJ, and the even more evil Great Society. But contrary to what free-market nutjobs would have us believes, those government programs actually worked. Compare their accomplishments to those of the Reagan 80s or the Bush 00s (since Obama has only been in office for one year - the rest of the decade was all Bush and the Republicans), and it's clear that conservative/libertarian policies are inferior.
