7. about the only Reagan legacy i look at is the old antichrist 666 stuff..

remind the right wingers their prophesies... all that stuff named after Reagan...

I remember the 80 election like it was yesterday...what bothered as much as the shtick was the presses complicity, and downright dishonest coverage of his time in office... had any of Reagan's defining events happened under Carter the press would have been all over it.. starting with the "miraculous" return of the hostages... all of a sudden up equaled down... the thing that struck me at the time was the shelving of the energy proposals developed under Carter, we could be 30 years into a green revolution, Germany was listening!!

when our Marines were killed in Lebanon, it was just dropped had that been under a Democratic administration we would still be hearing about it, Reagan got a free pass... Iran-Contra should have ended with impeachment, and Ollie North should have done prison time... instead Ollie ended up being a right wing hero...

starting with the destruction of PATCO along with non enforcement of Sherman anti-trust the die was cast for what's going on now.. well said!!
