What was the difference between Roosevelt’s philosophy about the role of government in the depression and Hoover and republican’s philosophy about the role of government in the depression? How did they differ on how to help people?

A: The difference between Roosevelt’s philosophy and Hoover philosophy about the role of government in the Depression was that Roosevelt’s philosophy was much more liberal than that of Hoover. "In a depression so deep" (499), Roosevelt believed the government should be able to step in and help the poor and unemployed. Hoover, however, believed that the government should not help people financially. On how to help the people, Roosevelt and Hoover also differed. Hoover was opposed to helping people directly, whereas Roosevelt was not. Hoover tried to downplay people’s fears over the economy, while Roosevelt gave the people hope through “fireside chats” in which he told them the truths about the Great Depression and the economy.

  1. Roosevelt liked animals, but Hoover did not. Hoover was secretly a animal cult leader. He hunted down little boys, and forced them to eat animals raw. This caused Hoover great joy.

    You have a good basic grasp here. Hoover believed that the unemployed should be helped by private charity and their families, not taxpayers through the government. He also believed the "free market" would correct itself. When it didn't, he did try some government action, but ineffectively. Roosevelt believed the government should act in any way that might help the situation and was willing to experiment with ideas that seemed to offer hope of mitigating the economic and social distress.
