Ronald Reagan on Franklin Roosevelt: The Significance of Style
K. Alan Snyder - 08/20/08

Reagan was a New Deal Democrat. He joked that he had probably become a Democrat by birth, given that his father, Jack, was so devoted to the Democratic Party. The younger Reagan cast his first presidential vote in 1932 for Franklin Roosevelt, and did so again in the succeeding three presidential contests. His faith in FDR remained undimmed even after World War II, when he called himself “a New Dealer to the core.” He summarized his views in this way:“I thought government could solve all our postwar problems just as it had ended the Depression and won the war. I didn’t trust big business. I thought government, not private companies, should own our big public utilities; if there wasn’t enough housing to shelter the American people, I thought government should build it; if we needed better medical care, the answer was socialized medicine.” When his brother, Moon, became a Republican and argued with his sibling, the younger Reagan concluded “he was just spouting Republican propaganda.”

Of course, Reagan was to change his views drastically in the coming years, but even when one examines his later comments about Franklin Roosevelt and the New Deal, one comes away with the sense that he never got over his youthful admiration of a man he considered a great leader. He would carefully parse his criticisms of the New Deal, often focusing on the honorable intent of the heart over the practical effect of the policies. Critique and praise would be mixed together as he attempted to separate the man from his programs.

Obama has already queered the jury pool and made it impossible for Zimmerman to receive a fair trial.

Florida V Zimmerman: Uncovering The Malicious Prosecution of My Son – By Robert Zimmerman Sr.

http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2013/06/1...

I offer up even more fervent prayers for George and the entire Zimmerman family.
“Lord, I just pray right here, right now for your righteous, divine, spiritual intervention for George and the Zimmerman family. May the precious blood of Jesus wash over them, protect them and may YOUR LIGHT of truth burn through the evil that is attacking this family and spreading across our our once fair land.We, I know as your word has been given, written that your truth will prevail over any and all evil. I pray for your covering of grace that can only be given by you Lord for George Zimmerman and his family. Bless Father Zimmerman for his book and standing up to the evil that is threatening his beloved son and they are all your children. I ask this in Jesus name, Amen”

Democrats wanted to increase spending forcing Reagan to come to them hat in hand about every five months to get debt ceiling increases to pay for all the spending.

Reagan would have preferred to minimize the deficits by eliminating wasteful spending. However, the only way to persuade a Democratic Congress to accept a defense buildup and pro-growth tax cuts was to agree to their domestic spending demands.

Ironically, the 1980s budget deficits made the 1990s surpluses possible. The budget was balanced by surging tax revenues from a booming, low-tax economy and defense savings brought on by the end of the Cold War.

As Reagan explains in his autobiography: He did accept tax hikes "in return for the Democrats' agreement to cut spending by $280 billion," but, Reagan continues, "the Democrats reneged on their pledge and we never got those cuts."

When Republicans swept into power over both branches of Congress after the first two years of a failed Clinton presidency, they enforced the Contract with America which called for balancing the budget and, because of that, Bill Clinton in a State of the Union Address said,“The era of big government is over.”

Because Reagan had put an end to the Cold War, Bill Clinton was also able to gut the Pentagon and Intelligence agencies budgets.

So, liberals need to remember who had control of the purse strings and who really created a deficit needing debt ceiling increases.

Iran 1954-1955 Operation AJAX, we staged a coup of the newly DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF IRAN and installed the SHAH into power. Ever hear of the SAVAK, Iranian secret police. The number of people arrested, jailed without a trial, tortured and killed makes Saddam look like an angel.
Iraq 1979, CIA helps put Saddam into power.
I never mentioned Iraq in 1992.
I did mention Iraq 2003. Tell me what were they doing that warranted our invading the country and taking out Saddam?
as for Afghanistan in the 80's, we armed, trained and financed the Mujaheddin, which was to become Al Qaeda.
We need to learn to mind our own business.
1954-1955? Lordy, how long do you people hold a grudge?

Yes, we may have mettled and may have been wrong about the Shah in hindsight.

But Russia was influencing the other guy and Commnunist Russia in the 1950s having that kind of power involving control over that much oil was not in ours or the world's best interest.

Saddam was considered the entire world's ally against Iran in the 1970s.

But things changed. Maybe you should do some research so you can get up to snuff.
