The same old tired promises of domestic socialism and foreign appeasement that failed so miserably before Reagan came to office are still being offered to the voters by one camp, and the same tried and true policies of lower taxes and individual responsibilty at home combined with a firm and decisive policy abroad that characterized the Reagan years are being offered by the other. Another "Time to Choose" is coming in November.
So making working Americans buy whatever drugs are invented for their neighbors doesn't count as socialism? Both parties dole out socialism by the bucketful, because that's what people elect them to do.
Goldwater was the better man in that campaign. I think if he had spent more resources on trying to get americans to like him and trust him, he would have done much better. Instead I feel like his campaign ads were too focused on trying to convince americans on serious issues, when that is not really the strength of political advertising
Thank you very much.
Saved on both hard drive a floppy.
I knew very little about him at the time.
Even though I voted for President Reagan both times, my first vote was anti Carter. My second was for the man I believe was the best modern day president.
USS Ronald Reagan
I will miss President Reagan all the days of my life. Beloved President. Please watch over America, President Reagan.
