Recessions Usually Benefit the Few

Letter to the Editor:
I’m 82 years old and spent the first ten years of my life in a small Kansas town dominated by right wing republicans during the Great Depression.

Anyone who had classmates or friends that had been forced to move from farms or homes their families had lost (and I knew many) could never forget those times.

During any recession or depression most lose however a few always win. The winners are almost always right wing Republicans and appear unable to ignore or do support great cruelty.

How anyone could support such cruelty is beyond my ability to comprehend. I am nowhere near being on the fence when supporting any political cause.
