Oh GAWD. Reagan was the beginning of the END for this country. His policies of deregulation on big business, cuts to social programs and exorbitant
military spending and focus on Predominant America laid the foundation for the collapse we are now seeing, as well as the disdain of the rest of the
You may miss him, but Im glad he's gone.
By the way, I lived through his years as Governor of CA, and I know first hand what his priorities were and trust me, he didnt care about the little
guy. He was single handedly responsible for filling the streets of CA with tens of thousands of mentally ill folks, some were Viet Nam Vets that
couldnt cope with normal life (Iraqi vets will be the next generation of vet victims), none of which were capable of self determination, and all of
whom eventually became either a burden on the CA taxpayer or died in obscurity in alleyways in cities up and down California.
No, far from deserving adulation, Ronald Reagan should go down in history as the architect of disaster. "Trickle Down" economics was a MYTH. STAR
WARS was a joke, and didnt even become a reality until AFTER he termed out of office.
I personally reject this hero-worship mentality for a man so out of touch with his constituents that he could cut social programs all while his wife
is busily paying $1000 a place setting for White House China. Ronald Reagan SUCKED and anyone that worships him is a TARD.
