    Do you understand the difference between a use tax and an income tax. How many times did he raise income taxes? You really are dedicated to a failed ideology and the question is why?

    As of today, BHO is responsible for 36% of our total national debt throughout our history, more than any other POTUS. By the time he leaves office on 20 January 2017 he may be responsible for more than 50% of our national debt -- more than all other Presidents combined.

    Do you even know what a use tax is?

    Exactly, liberals don't understand return on investment including the peace dividend and 17 million jobs created

    Yep, doubling GDP, 17 million jobs, and a peace dividend looks like a pretty good return on that investment

    The Cold War ended despite President Reagan's arms buildup, not because of it--or so former President Gorbachev told the authors

    Reagan and the Russians - 94.02
    As the Germans said: "No Reagan, no Gorbachev." Gorby's rise to power was the last, desperate Soviet attempt to tweak an increment of extra productivity out of the Soviet economy, but that was a colossal blunder. The "little bit" of freedom let loose under Gorbachev was sufficiently corrosive as to destroy the USSR. Gorbachev blundered into the destruction of his state. A real sorcerer's apprentice.

    Jun 5, 2004 - “Reagan bolstered the U.S. military might to ruin the Soviet economy, and he achieved his goal,” said Gennady Gerasimov, who served as top ...


    He is vividly remembered in Russia today as the force that precipitated the Soviet collapse.
    “Reagan bolstered the U.S. military might to ruin the Soviet economy, and he achieved his goal,” said Gennady Gerasimov, who served as top spokesman for the Soviet Foreign Ministry during the 1980s.

    Reagan’s agenda toward Moscow started shortly after the start of his first term — and marked a major departure from the mild detente of the Jimmy Carter administration.
    In 1981, Reagan backed his rhetoric with a trillion dollar defense buildup. U.S.-Soviet arms control talks collapsed, and the two nations targeted intermediate-range nuclear missiles at each other across the Iron Curtain in Europe.
    The deployment of the U.S. missiles in Europe rattled the Kremlin’s nerves, because of the shorter time they needed to reach targets in the Soviet Union compared to intercontinental missiles deployed in the United States.
    In an even bigger shock to the Kremlin, Reagan in 1983 launched an effort to build a shield against intercontinental ballistic missiles involving space-based weapons.
    The Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), dubbed “Star Wars,” dumped the previous doctrine of Mutual Assured Destruction that assumed that neither side would start a nuclear war because it would not be able to avoid imminent destruction.
    Even though Reagan’s “Star Wars” never led to the deployment of an actual missile shield, it drew the Soviets into a costly effort to mount a response. Many analysts agree that the race drained Soviet coffers and triggered the economic difficulties that sped up the Soviet collapse in 1991.
    “Reagan’s SDI was a very successful blackmail,” Gerasimov told The Associated Press. “The Soviet Union tried to keep up pace with the U.S. military buildup, but the Soviet economy couldn’t endure such competition.”

    Excellent article but one that the liberals will ignore only to come back in a few days saying the same thing over and over again hoping that eventually their claims will come true. I particularly like this part of the article

    When Democrats or media embrace Reagan for “raising taxes X number of times,” they are usually engaging in willful obfuscation. This is because they know that when most people hear the words, “tax hike,” they naturally assume you mean raising income taxes. But tax rates (both nominal and effective) dropped dramatically across-the-board during Reagan’s tenure.

    Not only did the top individual income tax rate go from 70 to 28 percent! — but the tax code was also indexed for inflation (this is a big deal, because inflation had heretofore pushed people into higher tax brackets — a double whammy.)
    And then again isn't it amazing that personal income tax revenue increased over 60% with those income tax rate cuts? How about that? I always have been told by liberals that tax cuts cut govt. revenue not increasing them 60%

    Amazing record

    When inaugurated, Reagan inherited a nation with 16 tax brackets — ranging from marginal rates of 14 percent to 70 percent. By 1989, that was down to two brackets — with marginal rates of 15 percent and 28 percent.

    What is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty? You obviously have never researched the Reagan record and buy what the left tells you. Why? You seem to be emotionally invested in liberalism and I don't understand it. When proven wrong, accept it, apologize, and move on. One of these days that light bulb is going to go off in that head of yours and hopefully the liberal elites haven't destroyed you completely before it does.
