    ...matches up perfectly with the statist shenanigans going on today. I wish Democrats would openly embrace socialism because that's what they're pushing. Here's Maggie:

    When is our Thatcher or Reagan going to emerge? The country is being gravely damaged by excessive spending and interventions by the state into the private economy.

    Your Reagan did emerge, and most view him with rosy colored glasses... but inreality he became part of the problem..

    See no counterattack in Lebanon after an attack on Marines there in fact we withdrew from there, secret negotiations with Iran before inaugurated, the whole Iran Contra Mess.. personally still await for things to trickle down.

    If the Iran Contra took place today in this blogosphere, Reagan would not be looked on very favorably.. he would just be another hollow brained egomaniac politician..

    Um, he's talking about now pal, not 25 years ago. Where's the Reagan, or Thatcher, of the 21st century.

    It's funny how we keep on pointing out how countries with UHC pay half or less than we do for our healthcare, yet you post something stupid like this.

    So you want another Iran Contra Scandal:confused::confused:

    Reagan is often deified by many, in reality he was an actor.. you may long for another Reagan.. but the previous one would not have completed his term.. in this day of instant news and hyperbole he would be classified as epic fail, an perhaps would have been impeached.
