So, what are your reasons for holding him in such high esteem?
Hey I could care less if he wins or looses. I will let his own bio speak for itself. No one needs my opinion at all, other then you and a few others
who do not matter, you only get one vote just like me.
A very telling statement.
You volantarily nominated Reagan as the greatest American ever. So, you gave your opinion for all to consider.
The difference only between you and me is I hold an applause button in my hot little hands. The members of ATS gave that right to me.
It's cool. People deserve applause when make smokin' good points, backed up by solid sources.
Whoever (besides me) winds up nominating the winning candidate, will get a plenty phat applause from me.
I like this thread because I like American history. A lot of people do not know jack about our nation's history. And yet, they think they do. Threads
like this are very good for educating people b/c of all the excellent links. And conversation.
That's why I see nominating someone as being important enough to merit describing what he/she meant to you, this country and possibly the world.
Ronald Reagan completely falls into that category of greatness. For not just a few things. He and his character have been much-maligned through the
years by the media and even so, he remains highly popular with the masses (USA). To me, President Reagan was a great man and a true patriot.
If you gave him a good presentation in your own view (w/links), he could very well win.
