"Just Wonderful"...We finally get to learn about the excellent awesome coolness of Ronald Reagan!



............now we finally get to learn about the excellent awesome coolness of Ronald Reagan!

We are told that President Reaganís rhetoric inspired many, particularly his emphasis that (1) budgets should be balanced and (2) trade and business should be free from government interference. These principles reflected the most basic tenets of free enterprise capitalism that had made America great. The Reagan years became the longest period of vigorous and continuous economic growth since World War II, with lower taxes and less government regulation. Though deficit spending and the national debt skyrocketed, sound conservative thought flourished on many levels during the 1980s.


Wait, what was that thing about balanced budgets again? And the Reagan tax increases? Oh, never mind, it was all just wonderful! And never mind that the economic expansion of the 1990s was actually a little longer; it happened under a guy who lied about a blowjob, so it does not count.

................

Remember, boys and girls... If the US does not bankrupt itself with military spending and annihilate all life on the planet through a nuclear holocaust, the communists win.

1. "Sound conservative thought"

What a laughable phrase that is.

4. Exactly how many budgets did St. Ronnie balance as president?

Oh, that's right--none. Instead the deficit grew from what he inherited from that evil Jimmy Carter.

5. Tough Guy?

How many service members were killed in terrorist attacks that he did nothing about. These were cited by OBL as to Americas weakness and that we were a paper tiger.
