Any conjecture about what Reagan would do or not is totally immaterial now. The world and the United States are both completely different now, 38 years later.

History can be argued any way anyone wants, but the past is fixed and won't ever change. Reagan was a man of his times, and those times are long gone.

Ronald Reagan could have fixed the USA

I'm very tired of right-wingers thinking they have the right to spew intolerance and hatred without consequences, but nobody has the right to call them out for it.
They don't think that. That's something you made up in order to avoid discussing policy since progressive policies are known failures.

It's not facts when you make something up to avoid discussing policy since that would out you as someone who supports failure.

lmao Yea the left doesn't like bigots, it's just that they vote for them in leadership. Muslims are crazy, they rioted over a video. That was the bigoted response from your president and sec of state to cover up their gun running in Benghazi which got 4 Americans killed. Clean your room, it's filthy.

Agreed, he was a lying scumbag. Just another lowlife who said anything to get elected. Ran on small government, voted for big government too much

Voodoo Economics (aka Reaganomics) - an economic policy perceived as being unrealistic and ill-advised, in particular a policy of maintaining or increasing levels of public spending while reducing taxation, as in "the numbers do not add up - talk about voodoo economics"

Of course no one would ever do the same thing today, and massively cut taxes whilst pledging big infrastructure, defence and other such spending.

If Reagan hadnít lost his mind he would have been impeached for his Iran contra war. He wasnít any bargain either, dispite his followers opinions.

How many died of AIDS during Reaganís tenure because he ignored the crisis?

How many lost good paying union jobs?

How many people ended up homeless?

Want to talk about failure?

Letís.
