Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
You don't seem to be able to comprehend the role of the Federal Govt. and you look at the 1.7 trillion dollar debt of Reagan's without looking at the results generated from that debt because you fail to recognize the return on investment. Had Reagan not generated the results, not created a peace dividend, not created 17 million jobs, not restored honor and respect around the world for this country then you would be right about tripling the debt. Unfortunately for you, that isn't the case and the majority in this country got it which is why Reagan won 49 states in 1984 and showed the leadership to bring us out of a worse recession than this one. Liberals cannot accept that because they look at the results today and numbers today while comparing them to those in the 81-82 recession while ignoring the policies that generated the numbers today and then.
