    No party has ever flip flopped like the GOP does every cycle.
    Ronnie Raygun was the epitome of opportunistic political meandering.
    Your post about inconsistency, next to Bonzo's goofy picture, absolutely gushes with historical irony.

    Reagan knew what he was doing...you are right to be mad.

    RWR was the second greatest POTUS of the 20th century, trailing only FDR. Notably, neither man was especially consistent. Perhaps they recalled Emerson: "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds."

    Those poll results can't be right. Liberals are committing voter fraud.. ...as usual.

    It is your madness that has inclined you to criticize the left for the foibles you then claim to admire in your own St. Ronnie.
    Bonzo put his political finger to the wind and leaned however he thought it would benefit his political career.
    He never had a bone of true political or moral conviction in his body, ever.
    Any real student of Ronnie's political fickleness would understand that.
    You are enamored by an imaginary political hero that never really existed.

    Reagan cited the threats he received as an anti-communist to be highly formative. Once he realized how the left plays, he made it a lifelong political and moral conviction to eradicate it. He largely succeeded-and the entire time the left was shrieking. It probably sounded like music to his ears. Its music to mine.

    There have even been calls to arrest those who disagree with them on global warming... Arrest Climate-Change Deniers

    We are told (by them) that "the debate is over".



    Is the left becoming more and more (nakedly) authoritarian?
    Once again, you don't have MY answer.

    Quoted for irony. Regan may have known, but not Reagan!
    Much like incurious George, Ronnie was gloriously disconnected from reality. Ron merely retained the ability to get up on his hind legs and read his lines. Then he got back to counting jelly beans.
