Yep. I always note we had no wars under Reagan. We built a very strong defense and used our power to promote our interests. We defeated the soviets without conflict in that time frame. We used military power when needed, but did not pursue war. It’s a good model. Peace through strength and restraint is a good philosophy.

Exactly. I think the world would be a very different place if his policies had been continued till today.

I think there would be a free market democratic Cuba and Venezuela. I think his border mistake would have been corrected years ago (really a congressional mistake) and Mexico well on its way to catching up with the USA and Canada. I think Russia would have become a major trading partner and many foreign companies would be seeking to build factories in America.
