    I heard Tina Fey is going to be playing the part of Sarah Palin on Fox News.

    Reagan himself went even farther. Asked at a press conference in Moscow in 1988, his last year in office, about the role he played in the great drama of the late 20th century, he described himself essentially as a supporting actor. ”Mr. Gorbachev,” he said, ”deserves most of the credit, as the leader of this country.”

Failed attempts at reform, a stagnant economy( after Stalin's economics collectivizations, there wasn't really anywhere to go), and war in Afghanistan led to a general feeling of discontent, especially in the Baltic republics(Georgia) and Eastern Europe(slavic regions that weren't necessarily in tune with the Kremlin).

    Greater political and social freedoms, instituted by the last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, created an atmosphere of open criticism of the Moscow regime. The dramatic drop of the price of oil in 1985 and 1986, and consequent lack of foreign exchange reserves in following years to purchase grain profoundly influenced actions of the Soviet leadership.

    Several Soviet Socialist Republics began resisting central control, and increasing democratization led to a weakening of the central government. The USSR's trade gap progressively emptied the coffers of the union, leading to eventual bankruptcy. The Soviet Union finally collapsed in 1991 when Boris Yeltsin seized power in the aftermath of a failed coup that had attempted to topple reform-minded Gorbachev.
    Instead of this mindless trolling, read my post.....#400.... it at least has a link to follow.

    East-West tensions increased during the first term of U.S. President Ronald Reagan (1981-1985), reaching levels not seen since the 1962 Cuban missile crisis as Reagan increased US military spending to 7% of the GDP.[citation needed] To match the USA's military buildup, the Soviet Union increased its own military spending to 27% of its GDP and froze production of civilian goods at 1980 levels.[citation needed] Reagan furthermore supplied Afghan warriors with Stinger missiles which cost the US only $1 billion annually, but which cost the Soviet Union as much as $8 billion annually in military losses.[citation needed] Finally, Reagan also actively hindered the Soviet Union's ability to sell natural gas to Europe whilst simultaneously actively working to keep gas prices low which served to keep the price of Soviet oil low and further starved the Soviet Union of foreign capital. This "long-term strategic offensive" which "contrasts with the essentially reactive and defensive strategy of containment" accelerated the fall of the Soviet Union by encouraging it to overextend its economic base.

    Reagan could have been the greatest president ever, if not for his deficit spending, his cutting and running in Lebanon, all the criminals under him, the savings and loan collapse, raising tax on SS and his traitorous acts of dealing with terrorists.
    Reagan took office with a 900 billion debt and left it at 2.6 trillion. His tax cuts grew govt. revenue that Congress spent. Reagan set a record for vetoes during his Administration but without the line item veto Reagan had to accept Congressional pork to get his legislative agenda passed.

    You have a distorted view of the debt, 2.6 trillion is management in a 14 trillion dollar economy, 13 trillion isn't

    You have made my point about Reagans irresponsible fiscal policies. He trippled the national debt during good times, a time when we were not at war. Deficits should have dropped and the debt paid down. Instead he mortgaged the countries future.
    The GDP was 6.3 trillion in 88.
