Reagan was kind of an idiot to purposely rise to the presidency of the US- the "leader of the free world"- and then denigrate the office and the entire government he serves, like that! What an idiot!

Further proof: He despised and rejected this government his friends spent hundreds of millions to put him in charge of- AND DID NOTHING TO CHANGE IT!!!!

That's kinda typical. Recently, republicans had there guy in office for EIGHT YEARS! They did NOTHING to make government smaller- just like they did nothing to make government smaller during Reagan's eight years.

Then, when the opposition gets in the White House, they DEMAND he make government small! WTF? NOW???? You people couldn't/wouldn't do it and you expect your opposition to do it for you?

It'd be funny if it wasn't so pathetically stupid!

Got a quote or just another opinion that goes off topic?

"No arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable
as the will and moral courage of free men and women."

LEARN:
examine Reagan’s tax cuts and tax increases in order to set the record straight and end this tomfoolery.
Over the course of his two terms in office, Reagan presided over several changes to the tax code. What is important to remember — what is vital to understand — is that not all taxes are created equal.
When Democrats or media embrace Reagan for “raising taxes X number of times,” they are usually engaging in willful obfuscation. This is because they know that when most people hear the words,“tax hike,” they naturally assume you mean raising income taxes. But tax rates (both nominal and effective) dropped dramatically across-the-board during Reagan’s tenure.
Not only did the top individual income tax rate go from 70 to 28 percent!— but the tax code was also indexed for inflation (this is a big deal, because inflation had heretofore pushed people into higher tax brackets — a double whammy.)
Yet the notion that Reagan was a tax-hiker has persisted. In recent years, Republicans ranging from former Sen. Alan Simpson to Reagan aide Bruce Bartlett have been cited noting that Reagan raised taxes (he did.) But their statements are often taken out of context — as if to muddy the waters — to make it appear that Reagan was a fan of tax hikes.
many of Reagan’s so-called “tax increases” were actually examples of ending deductions.
Overall, Reagan dramatically cut the most odious of taxes.
So, for those who care about the truth, here are some details. One of the tax increases Reagan signed (the Highway Revenue Act of 1982) was a temporary increase in the federal gas tax from 4 to 9 cents.(This could be thought of as a sort of “user fee,” inasmuch as the revenue generally went to roads and infrastructure.) Another was a cigarette tax (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985.) These are real tax increases, but should not be confused with the income tax.
understand user taxes.... if you use ,you paid for it , wasn't across the board
EDUCATION IS OPEN TO ALL , GET SOME
Yes, Reagan significantly reduced taxes and significantly increased military expenses. The result of the tax reductions and military expense increases was ~$5 Trillion more deficit, during Reagan's administration. Since the U. S. has operated with a deficit virtually every year since then, we have paid interest upon interest on this ~$5 Trillion, further contributing to our deficit.

President Reagan is the only president to have cut the budget of the Department of Housing and Urban Development in one of his terms (a total of 40.1 percent during his second term).
President Reagan is the only president to have cut the budget of the Department of Transportation. He cut it by 10.5 percent during his first term and by 7.5 percent during his second term.
During his first term in office, President Reagan cut the real budget of the Department of Education by 18.6 percent, while President Nixon increased it (that is the education part of what was then the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare) by 19.1 percent. That budget increased by 22.2 percent under Bush 41 and by 38.5 percent under Carter. Our current president has increased it by a whooping 67.6 percent.
Reagan managed to cut the budget of the Department of Commerce by 29 percent in constant dollars during his first term and by 3 percent during his second one. President Clinton by contrast increased the department’s budget by 24 percent in his first term and then by 96.7 percent in his second term.
President Reagan cut the real budget of the Department of Agriculture by 24 percent during his second term in office.
President Reagan never cut the budgets of the departments of Defense, Health and Human Services, Justice, or State.

"Freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. It is the continuous revolution of the market place. It is the understanding to recognize the shortcoming and seek solutions."

(Addressed to students at Moscow State University 5/31/88)

President Ronald Reagan

I wish I could believe those words, alas .. I do not completely. Too much interference which makes accomplishing change necessary just seems too far out of reach anymore.

Who's to blame ...? Certainly not any of us ,,, rite?
