Is anyone old enough to remember Reagan 1980?

I voted for Reagan in 1980.

But those were the days of the ‘moral majority’, and a US population that was proud to be American.

Now we have significant populations of Hispanics, Muslims, and freeloaders who are united in their desire to loot America, to take with their vote what real Americans spent 200+ years to build.

I hope for good things, but I’m not in love with Post-Christian America.

Yes, and many have predicted that this race will be similar to that one, with the Republican challenger pulling ahead decisively over the unpopular Democratic incumbent in the final weeks.

There seems to be that similarity, but there are some differences too. One is that Carter did not have the seeming lock on some of the biggest states that Obama has. Another is that you had a much stronger third party candidate (John Anderson, a RINO) which added another wrinkle to that race.

I voted for Reagan 1980 absentee ballot - I was out of the country at the time. I also remember 20 years earlier when I voted in my first presidential election...1st of three times I voted for Nixon. In 1960 I was in the military.
