The paper discusses how, in retracing the events that led to the Great Depression, it is evident that one of the primary causes was the Republican control of the federal government throughout the nineteen-twenties, which enabled big business, financiers and banking interests to abuse America's economic system. Millions of social and cultural conservatives supported corrupt state and federal politicians who had taken their side in the culture wars of this tumultuous decade and ignored the rampant greed and corruption in government, big business and financial circles. This angered millions of liberals and working class Americans, who had been slandered by conservatives as being immoral because they opposed Prohibition, supported religious tolerance and believed in labor rights.
