132. I lived under the asshole Reagan's rule for sixteen long years!
Edited on Sat Jun-05-04 07:53 PM by Zinfandel
(I posted this elsewhere on DU, and I'm too stoned right now to write a new one, and the prick Reagan doesn't deserve a new post from me)

So the lying conservatives had nothing to show for eight years of Reagan's pigs getting rich and fucking over everyone else and now they still insist and keep trying to pin the tag that... "Reagan all by himself brought down the Soviet Union" WHAT LYING & COMPLETE BULLSHIT!!!!

The asshole Reagan did nothing but fuck over the poor and middle-class, catered to the rich and began massive deregulation of the corporations during his time in office...The true beginning of fascism in this country and the same racist, lying, corrupt greedy pigs are in the Bush administration today!

The asshole Reagan did no more than any other president starting back with Truman, then Ike, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Reagan & Pappy Bush, to bring down the Berlin Wall and force change in the USSR.

Each of the presidents mentioned above, increased the US military defense budgets and bought new and more technologically advanced weapons systems.

This is fact. It wasn't just the asshole Reagan, the USSR was going down slowly before Reagan ever became president.

Carter for instance, increased the US military budget 5%, each of his four years in office (and just like they do now against democrats, the republicans successfully lied, saying Carter was weak on defense, same old shit and that's the tactics and lies Reagan used to win against Cater).

Actually the official fall of the USSR occurred during Pappy Bush's administration, not under Reagan's.

Clinton was the first president to significantly cut defense spending...Freaked out the weapons makers, the Pentagon, right-wing fascist, etc...

Had to come up with a new enemy...and quick, to get those bucks back and flowing again...
