Your confidence in a debating forum is admirable, A. Smith, but your diligent scholarly efforts towards achieving a fuller understanding of the Great Depression come as somewhat of a surprise.

For starters, the Great Depression began in 1929, not 1932. That is a fact that anybody who passed a grade 12 history exam or who is well versed in historical documentaries can tell you. Your statistics on government spending from 1929 to 1932, then, are without any value whatsoever for explaining something that happened in 1929 and had been building for some years before then.

With this in mind, I'd be surprised if you had ever given the Great Depression any thought whatsoever before I mentioned it in my previous comment.
