"Our enemies may be irrational, even outright insane,
driven by nationalism, religion, ethnicity or ideology.
They do not fear the United States
for its diplomatic skills or the number of automobiles
and software programs it produces.
They respect only the firepower of our tanks,
planes and helicopter gunships."

President Ronald Reagan

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
"
President Ronald Reagan

"A political party cannot be all things to all people.
It must represent certain fundamental beliefs
 which must not be compromised to political expediency
or simply to swell its numbers."

--  President Ronald Reagan

So I was at the bar one day, and a fellow barfly was ranting about Ronald Reagan. Every single one of his "facts" was sheer historical revisionism.

I didn't blame him for it, he simply was repeating what he had learned in school and elsewhere.

Finally, I asked (loudly enough for everyone to hear): "How old were you in 1981?" He answered, "five."

I gave him a look I cannot describe, but can only illustrate:

Everyone shut up and started talking sports again.

The process of reversing the gains Reagan made began with George H.W. Bush in 1989.

"Rush Limbaugh asserted that Team Obama wants to “erase every trace of Reagan from America”—not just to repeal and reverse Reagan’s policies, but to engage in wholesale historical revisionism by obfuscating Reagan’s record and reshaping public opinion about him."

I see this happening right here on a site that is supposed to be for conservatives. RINOs show up saying things like Reagan was pro-abortion, courtesy of lying Mitt Romney and his sycophants and that Reagan "wanted" amnesty. They conveniently forget the fact that he wanted the borders secure and believed that the deal with the dems for a secure border would work.

I'm glad Rush has given them such a perfectly descriptive name -- Team Obama. Every time I run into one of these revisionists, I'll remind them of the name Rush gave them.

(Article) In the effort to attain that power, they also commit depredations on truth, as George Orwell warned in “1984.”

He also warned about lying uses of language in Animal Farm and in his recollections of the Spanish Civil War, in which he was a sympathizer of the Left, and a volunteer. He wound up having to flee Communist show-trials and firing squads in 1938 -- literally having to flee across rooftops -- after having watched the Communists, on Stalin's orders, savage and kill their labor-syndicalist allies. That horror was Orwell's education, which he spent the rest of his life transmitting to the future.

it may be too late already

currently, 10% of voters think the American Civil War happened when the brave, noble Democrats fought to free the slaves from the evil, racist Republicans.

I’m sure that percentage is rising.

at some point in the near future it will be a crime to speak of the real history, when everyone else is parroting the new, improved history.
