17. This was my response 2 days ago to a fellow New Mexico DUer about the Democratic leadership

and their complicity in the "Reagan myth": We ( our party's upper echelon) have for the most part been cowardly in standing up to and challenging the Reagan myth and thus assisted in its taking hold of the "conventional wisdom"....Below was my reply to Cybergata: not particularly deeply insightful nor eloquently stated , but I think it's unfortunately accurate.

101. The failure/refusal of the "leadership" of our party to challenge and debunk the Reagan myth

has made them enablers if not co-conspirators in the crimes against humanity that the republican party has committed for the last thirty years. How are large numbers of people going to stop "lauding" him when the "opposition " party assists in perpetuating the lie of who he was and what he really did ( well, not him so much, but the people he was acting as a frontman for). Do you remember the Albq.Journal front page when he died ? It still makes me just about barf just picturing it: an oversize picture with just two also oversize words : "Graceful and gallant". How are the mass of people going to figure out it's all a lie when even the current Democratic president continues to say nice things about him?
