Why do people continue to think Reagan was a good president when he created what we have now?
Reagan sold out America. He exported our jobs oversees thru his free trade initiative. Destroyed unions and the middle class and created the seeds for American oligarchy.

You are wrong. Also you do know that the democrats ran the congress then and they refused to cut spending.

Hey, he was just doing what he was told to do by the PNAC.

He had to export our jobs because greedy unions were jacking up prices. Why should some junkie on an assembly line get paid 80k a year?

Dont blame Reagan. He was a great president. Remember he started the largest period of economic growth in the history of the country. Its the demy's fault. Notice the economy tanked when they took over congress in 2006.

And yet it was Bill Clinton who signed NAFTA and our trade deal with China.. go figure.
Answered By: How_Would_I_Know - 8/30/2010
I am not sure where you are getting your information from , but he did none of those things. Clinton, with NAFTA and creating the sub-prime mortgage practice, did far worse.

I agree with you. I wrote in my journal the day after Reagan got elected that the world was going to blow up the next day...because even at 15 I could see through his lies. I refuse to call the National Airport anything but that...even though technically it's the Reagan National Airport. Yuk.

No, the facts are never going to be enough, when the hater-of-the-poor is involved. But people have the right to their opinion. And sometimes, their opinions show their true colors.

Govt revenues doubled after the Reagan tax cuts. Deficits are caused by too much spending. Check the facts

They DO worship at the altar of Reagan. And I also heard that Nancy Reagan initiated the meeting with Gorbachev, so that he would have a greater legacy.
