14. I voted for Reagan twice,
but only as a loyal repug, because I never liked him. Reagan represented the triumph of the "Cowboy" conservatives and the inevitable decline of the republican party.

Reagan brought us sloganeering (marketing jingles really) in the place of wisdom, rigidity of outlook in the place of understanding, narrow mindedness in the place of perspective and posturing in the place of policy. Now all these things are accepted as a matter of course. Reagan was himself a hyped up commodity that had nothing in the way of real substance. Moreover, the triumph of Reagan opened the door for the triumph of chimpy --- and chimpy along with a host of far right, irresponsible policies are Reagan's enduring legacy.

It is an evil one.

Reagan was never a bright man and personally I think that he was already losing what little gifts he ever had when he was first elected president.

He is dead, no big deal, good riddance --- no sense in wasting all the thread space.
