Bobbie, you could almost make it in a bullshit contest with your Hero, but he still beats you for lying for political purpose and to try making a point. Good try, tho. And for Christ's sake, Stalin had been dead for maybe 40 years before Reagan won the cold war. It was Gorbachev who was running the Soviet Union at the time, before you were born. You make up shit all the time you pathetic pissant.

I find it interesting the mythology that has grown up around Reagan.

Even a hard line conservative outfit like Cato admits that "Reagan failed to radically reduce the size of government."

In fact, Reagan added a quarter of a million federal employees compared to Carter.

Sexy:

Regan didn't beat the soviets, Stalin did that himself with how he mismanaged the country after WWII, and killing off everyone smarter than himself. These are not hallmarks of communism, rather the corruption of it.

As for government cuts vs spending? Regan's cuts were 1 dollar for every 10 he added to defense spending. His reduction to the taxes bein paid into the country, ensured that all future spending was to be done by the credit card.

As for the infulstructure, I cannot speak to this as fact or not, however I know for a fact that when PA gutted PENDOT, and empowered local governments to maintain the roads and interstate, our infulstructure fell into disrepair.

In fact, having lived thru his era, I would call his Presidency the Productivity Presidency. He got the nation producing efficiently again, tax income rose, and indeed, he did spend more on roads, infrastructure, and education - because he had the money, and didn't have to borrow it for my kids to have to pay later.

Another rather important fact is that Reagan won the Cold War with Russia, and he mainly did that by over powering the Communist State economically. With reduced Government here, reduced taxes here, and with solid support for real growth (instead of Hope and Change bullshit) he really made a difference. We would be well to repeat his disciplined and goal oriented approach to government.
