    He was anti-Communist. That is always a plus in my book.

    Too bad his anti-communist foreign policy helped create terrorist organizations that we are fighting today. If we were not so afraid of the USSR and would have let them collapse on their own, the Taliban and other such orginizations would have eventually crumbled as well. But when you fund and arm a group, they will then have the ability to last longer (say 20-30 years).

    I disagreed with him about many things, but he handled the economy and the Cold War very well. If he wasn't the best POTUS of the 20th century, he was close.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    He did nothing in the Cold War that wasn't already gonna happen! He didn't need to fund the locals of Afghanistan for the Russians to leave as they were already falling apart! The Berlin Wall would've been destroyed even if he wasn't there to provide his famous words. The Cold War was already pretty much over when he put his nose in it. The result, an armed Saddam Hussein, armed Taliban, American funded terrorists, and economic decline. That's poor handling if you ask me. George Bush 41 would've been a much wiser choice as his foreign policy was effectie and non-binding.

    My bet is your comments are not relevant to this thread. and you claiming to be a conservative made me snarf out a mouthful of mountain dew

    which explains much of the hatred directed towards him on this thread

    No. Started "Reagan Economics" which is the practice of curbing regulations to allow rich people to get richer. Makes no sense to me.

    so edify me as to how the rich should get richer in your opinion

    I will tell you how I do. I don't spend all I make. In fact though my income has doubled in the last 10 years I spend about the same. Of course my taxes have gone up but what I don't pay in taxes and spend I invest. and that means I make more money.
