I won’t agree with Rand 100%, probably not even 80%....But I am looking to see if he has some stones as a leader.....That’s what people don’t realize, it’s not just about the issues, it is about the abilities as a leader....Do you think everyone that voted for Reagan agreed with him on everything? Reagan won because he was a heckuva leader, above all.
You’re right, but it did take real stones to do the filibuster like he did. Kudos to Cruz (another man of courage), Mike Lee and eventually Rubio. Plus the members of congress who came over to stand with him.
This could have blown up in his face and yet he made it work. He didn’t read from a phone book. He spoke with conviction about the constitution! Laura Ingraham said she was amazed he could be coherent and passionate about liberty for so long. And no need for a teleprompter!
Finally even McConnell had to get in there - seeing which way the wind was blowing!
That was bold, unlike the quislings McCain and that sissy Grahamnesty!
On the day Reagan died, the priest at Mass (military chaplain, a young guy from NJ) said, in his homily, Reagan was a lapsed catholic, having been raised as one, he was divorced and remarried outside of the Church, and so he was not a model for us as a Catholic.
And then he said something I always remember in times like this, “but, as president, Reagan made sure that we could be free to practice our faith freely in our country. He did his job. So let’s revere him on this day”.
