Remembering Reagan

Oh you found a couple of Reagan's gems! No teleprompter?? Ha ha !

I'm afraid the debate with Carter is what we're going to be looking at with this current regime. I forgot about the "misery index" - we're headed in that direction right now. Guess when that misery index is high enough, people will finally wake up and see what a mess we're in. Its funny how topics and concerns haven't changed much over the past 30 years.

Shall we have this split off and start a Reagan thread?

Might be a good idea to split it off. IMO, the Reagan-Carter debate may prove to be as historically significant as the Lincoln-Douglas debate. Somebody ought to send a copy of it to the RNC to help them remember their way.

I agree! Thumbs up

Never thought I'd see the day that I would actually be nostalgic for the Reagan Revolution years. It wasn't an easy task for Reagan to get this country back on track. I can still remember the early '80's as quite rough. The inflation rate of the late '70's stretched into the early '80's, but Reagan did a great job of motivating this country and getting it out of the huge economic hole and mess that Carter created.

got one.

Just as Reagan was the beginning of 30 years of Conservatism, so is Obama's election the beginning of maybe more years of progresivism. Grasping at past success or calls for even more doctrinair conservatism are all bad signs, or good from this perspective.

Next election - hopefully! Pretty soon we should be hearing about some potential GOP hopefuls! Thumbs up

We desperately need to get back to the conservative values this country was founded on! Government needs to be reduced AND removed from the private sector. Sadly this admin is going to make it very tough to straighten out. The current deficit alone is enough to make any rational person sick to their stomach. Who knows how many more billions they will throw away before its all said & done.

In the mean time, while we're waiting for our next "Reagan" - this country needs to get rid of the most problematic dems in 2010. That should slow down Obama's spending spree.

Oh, yeah...Obama is kicking off a wave of progressivism...just like Carter did.

What's that happening over in Europe?

I've read that conservatism was sweeping across Europe, so nice to see it reflected in their elections! Come on 2010!!! Thumbs up

Thank you for posting Expatriate. It was nice watching those old clips. Reagan was the reason why I switched from being a Democrat to being a long time Republican.

I could have not agreed more with what Ronald Reagan stood for and what he did for this country.
You certainly would not have seen him do this.
