    It depends.

    Are we voting for them based on their campaign rhetoric or voting for them based on what they've actually done in office?
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    2. Yes, the National Debt did rise under Reagan thenfore he did increase it unless...again...you're going with "Presidents don't pass budgets, congress does" in which case again you're either ignoring that Reagan signed them or you're in a position where you can't criticize Obama for spending

    3. Depends on your definition of government. If its money spent, then yes he did. If its people employed, then you could say he both grew it and cut it in specific ways.
    I admit, you are correct, I did some research on your points. What I meant is that O'Neill stoped Reagan from improving the economy greatly.

It was not as centered as it is now, but let's not forget the composition of the big tent.
    Don't forget Ford.

    "Read my lips" I don't think it is trickle down tax cutting time.

    Also in hindsight I would not vote for a President that would trade arms with a terrorist nation.
