Ronald Reagan-We need another just like Him!!!

Watching this video made me remember the Carter days that totally sucked,and the present Obama days that continue to suck--damn near identical

Just watching again is a major up beat mood boost.....We need another like him...again, to fix what these libtards have totally f***ed up!

Warning.....video is 45 minutes long,but the first 15 is just like looking into a mirror of the past vs. present

But well worth watching-the same thing happening then is happening now----only in boost mode

Some more things Ronnie Raygun gave the US was the BS Star Wars program. It is like a zombie that can't be killed roaming around the Pentagon still making money for the defense contractors since 1983. Unbelievably flawed technology that could never work back then and today.

Another Raygun act was to bringing cocaine into this country by the plane load to fund his secret war in Nicaragua. The price of coke on the street went from 70,000 a kilo to around 14,000 while Raygun was in office. Law of supply and demand, I guess.

Deregulated the savings and loan banks so his minions could rob billions from the FDIC. The American taxpayer is still paying on this fraud to this day. Sen. McCain was a major player in this also.

Regan was the biggest supporter of Bin Laden. Millions of dollars of support, arms and technology was given to Bin Laden when fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan. That turned out to great for the US in the long run, don't you agree.

Regan was making back room deals with the Iran for the hostages before he got elected. The 1st Bush was the mouthpiece for the deal. The hostages were released by Iran when Regan got elected. 3000 TOE missiles were handed over to Iran on the same day the hostages were released. This was done in secret also, with the American public kept in the dark. Raygun also gave Sadaam Huessin chemical weapons which he then used on the Kurds and Iran.

Sending the Marines into Lebanon. The US got a lot out of this Raygun idea. Lots of dead Marines coming home in body bags when their living quarters were destroyed by a suicide bomber. The Marines left soon after this incident took place.

Raygun was also cutting taxes drastically in his 1st year. The next 6 years while Raygun was in office taxes increased every year. He never made up for the shortfall from his 1st tax cut. Raygun's tax changes also created the largest-ever shift of tax burden from the wealthy to the middle-class and working poor.

When Raygun took office the National debt was 1 trillion dollars. That is from 1776 forward to the date Raygun took office. Revolutionary, 1812, Civil, Spanish American, WW I, WW II, Korean and Vietnam wars all contributed to the 1 trillion dollar figure. When Raygun left office the national debt was 3.5 trillion dollars in debt. So in 8 years Raygun managed to triple the National debt, which up to his term took a little over 200+ years to accumulate.

So which of these Raygun legacies that was implemented during his 2 terms in office makes him a great President?

I don't put myself into any political category. The founding fathers envisioned an educated electrate, people that actually get involved in the Democratic proscess. In the US today, that is not the case. More people watch the Super Bowl then to vote in elections.

The only folks benefiting from the current adminastration are the 1s who are farming it for the cash. Defense contractors, subsidies to agriculture/oil companies, welfare/Medicad fraud and of course lets not forget the banksters who just robbed this country for billions of dollars. This scum has been making money off of every adminastration Dem. and Rep. for a very long time. There is no political differences in the back rooms on Capitol Hill when the elected trash are deviding up the dirty graft money they recieve from their corporate Masters. The sheeple in this country are just to stupid to realize this, especailly when the TV talking heads says it ain't so.

Talking heads on TV convincing the working class sheeple to support changes that benefit the rich or if using the new buzz word, the job creators. I am no fan of any of the scum on Capitol Hill. The sheeple in this country need to clean house and get rid of all of them and start anew.

1 Senator put it best, the Senate is doing it's job because it truely represents the minority in America. This is a very true statement. It's too bad the sheeple out there don't realize there is only 1 true minority in the country and that is the 1/2 of 1% that controls 93% of the wealth in this country. Thats is who the Senate truely listens to, IMO.

here is how i see it. i don't think there is any politician that isn't guilty of some kind of underhanded tactics, and who doesn't have skeletons in their closet all the way back to george washington. both bush's, reagans, carter, ford, nixon, johnson, even kennedy, and all the way back. i don't have time to name every one. in reagans first two years his approval rating was actually lower than obamas now or as low i think it was. the carter era was a recession, but not like this one. it took a couple years for the reagan administration to get everything good again. i wasn't very political back when reagan was in office. when reagan was in office i think i 14-22. they seemed like good years here at home economically. i don't trust any politicians. i don't like republicans too much more than democrats. when i say that i mean republican politicians not republican civilians.

I am conservative before claiming any party.

Who was the Senator you are referencing?

What is his/her name?

While I agree they're all scum in D.C.,it beats any where else in the entire world---unless you love socialism -so the fleas come with the dog,however,D.C. can be given a flea collar

I grew up in the Carter era, did you?

Can you show proof of the national debt for Reagan's beginning and ending of his 2 terms-not just what you want to say it was?

If you Google Rayguns debt there will be plenty to come up. Here is 1 link that shows it very clear how truly conservative the Raygun was. Raygun even stated that 1 of his failings as President was the out of control spending during his 2 terms as President.

Hale "Bonddad" Stewart: Ronald Reagan: Fiscal Disaster

The Senator I spoke of in an earlier post was on late night TV last week giving an interview. I don't remember his name but I will dig it up. By the way, 1 of the main jobs of the Senate is to protect the minorities here in America. The rich shouldn't be considered a minority, to be protected by the Senate.

You can find all kinds of different figures for the national debt at the beginning and end of any presidents term, depending on where you look. You found one source and you choose to believe it. Keep looking and you'll find many others that tell different stories. Who do you believe?

There are several things in your post I disagree with, however, I'll discuss the one where you claimed Reagan brought in "plane loads" of cocaine to fund his wars. As a boarding officer in the Coast Guard during the Reagan years, I saw the majarity of smuggling go from pot to cocaine, but it was not because of Reagan. The smugglers knew it was easier to hide a million bucks worth of coke than the same amount of pot. I busted a boat with 52 tons of pot onboard once. We knew it was loaded when we were 200 yards downwind from them. Coke, however, was alot harder to find. Reagan didn't put it there, the smugglers did. So for you to say he brought it in is an ignorant comment. Not trying to slam you, but there's no other way to put it.

One more thing, Reagan didn't have to make "back room deals" with Iran to get the hostages released. Carter was a wimp and the Iranians knew it, they also knew Reagan wasn't and he would absolutely do something to get the hostages released. No backroom deals, just an absolute threat.

That's enough for now.
