Ronald Reagan was a great man. The greatest president in my lifetime, and possably ever. He was the president that won the cold war. Young people today forget, or dont know, how dangerous and vile communism was. He had the guts to say what he meant about such things as abortion,gay marriage, religion, military strength, and other conservative issues. He brought the war on drugs into the backyeard of the enemy. I was in the military when he was elected and morale went thru the roof after we heard the news he was our new commander in chief. It was both funny and pathetic how all those nitwit liberals like to portray him as stupid. Yeah he was stupid all right, dumb as a fox.
He was also a very humane man. When the time came to talk peace and disarment he was ready to. On the home front he had compassion for the down and out and minorities. He wasnt interested in enslaveing millions in an endless circle of welfare.poverty, and crime. His interest was in getting folks a job, some self respect, and a better future for their children. In the end he was proven right. We are a conservative God fearing nation at heart. No matter how much the liberals shriek, and the liberal media reports their shrieks. Reagan was the originator of compassionate conservatism.
He was a great man, a great President. I dont much like politicians but he was one of the few I would have been honored to meet. Maybe one day I will. Rest in peace Mr. President............and thank you..................Rich
