3. Reagan: "Government is not the solution to our problem...

... government IS the problem."

Reagan said that during his Inaugural Address, right from the start.

Never mind that he used the government to increase defense spending while cutting taxes for the wealthy for supposed "trickle-down" economics. And cutting benefits for the poor despite how economic growth comes from consumer spending.

That's the guy you idolized?! Seems like you should be celebrating the total dysfunction now, since that's the natural consequence of that "government is the problem" belief.
