@ Jake:

Fact is ....... Reagan set this country on a massive upward spiral towards a great economy. Clinton and his Dems rode the Reaganomics wave and subsequently ran it into the ground. (I witnessed this happening, perhaps you were too young to notice or care)  Bush was unable to recover it because he was too focused on 9/11 and subsequent events. 0bama is just making it worse. People are scared nowadays. They are afraid of what's to come because 0bama and his party of corruption are too busy lining theirs and their friends pockets.

For the record, I'm not a big fan of Reagan. He did a couple of things that I absolutely despise!!

Amnesty for illegals being paramount among them!

All things considered though, he was pretty damn good man for the office!

Our latest, "spend everyone's money but my friends", fearless leader takes the cake for useless in office!

Yep, that's ONE of them. The other was the 1986 Gun Control Act......

I don't pay much attention to "Gun Control Acts"! As far as I'm concerned, they don't exist!

I was really pissed about that.

Thanks to Reagan, we can no longer purchase ANY automatic weapon made after 1986. That cuts out a LOT of weapons!! I'd really like to have a real honest to God P-90. Not only did the GCA of 1986  put automatic weapons into an "extinction mode", but made the price of the ones that exist skyrocket to unimaginable and unrealistic cost. A real M-16 costs less than $1000 to manufacture. To buy a pre-1986 one costs around $10K or more. So, even IF one qualified and paid the tax stamp, they are out priced right from the get-go any more.

The price is too high if one gets caught with an illegally modified handgun or rifle. (10 years in prison and up to $250K fine)

Reagan blew the first credit bubble.  Well not Reagan exactly.  His administration launched a holy war on state banking laws (first chief of staff was a JPMorgan guy) and he appointed Greenspan.

There are things to admire about President Reagan, there are things that are not to be admired about his administration.

Tactically he handled foreign policy extremely well.  Domestically, he was the first President to offer amnesty, overturned state banking laws despite claiming to be a state rights activist, and appointed the biggest douche to sit in the Federal Reserve Chairman seat in history.

I hope we shall... crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country." --Thomas Jefferson to George Logan, 1816.
