    Looks like you are one of them. Reagans first term sucked as bad as Carters. Reagan raised taxes as much as he cut them, Reagan increased government spending, Reagan dealt with terrorists, Reagan's second term was followed by a recession that Bush Sr had to deal with.
    You might want to find a new hero to worship. Reagan made a mess of things.
    I know you will blame the bad things on congress and the good things on Reagan, but the truth is we had a few good years under Reagan just like we had a few good years under Clinton. Reagan was no saviour like some of you make him out to be.

    Reagan also bombed Libya, put the "war" in War on Drugs, allowed the continuation of Selective Service registration (despite his campaign promise to end it), helped the Khmer Rouge terrorize Thailand, imposed brutal trade sanctions on Nicaragua, funded the murderous brutal Contras, sold missiles to Iran, gave assistance to Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden, vetoed sanctions on the African National Party and lied to the American people.

    That he did all these things in the name of "freedom," "capitalism," "small government," and "liberty" renders his legacy, in my opinion, all the more insidious. If bad Reaganesque policies continue to have a pass because of their superficial rhetorical selling points, American liberty will have suffered, not strengthened, because of him.

    Obviously not because the collapse of the Soviet Union occurred during the Reagan years and that led to a peace dividend in the 90's. Your idea of foreign policy blunders doesn't jive with actual results.

    Please start a Reagan thread because I would love to educate you. For someone who claims to be 56 you certainly have a distorted view of what went on during the 80's and for someone who claimes to have voted for Reagan you obviously don't know who you voted for and what he actually accomplished.

    This thread has gone way off on a tangent which of course makes for a great diversion for what is going on today.

    And yet today he is one of the most admired President and revered by the majority in this country. Someone has a distorted view of what he did, probably you.

    What does that have to do with the question I asked. None of these Presidents were around in the late 1700's
