Neither Ronald Reagan, Milton Friedman, Thomas Sowell, Ron Paul or myself would like any public works paid for with tax dollars named after them.

Having lived in Louisville for almost 40 years before retiring to the sweet solitude of South Carolina, I can say the LAST thing downtown Louisville needs is ANOTHER bridge over the Ohio. For those that don’t know, there are already three bridges, two of which carry Interstate traffic (I-65 and I-64).

But, if y’all just gotta have another bridge, sure name it after the best President the US ever had, RR.

Just wonder what Reagan would say about Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway be named after him? It is fun to think about the Illinois liberals seeing the signs with Reagan’s name on it.

When streets etc, are named after Obama they will again, like MLK be named in ghetto areas.

Stop all the nitpicking!

Of course we should vote yes. Keep the Reagan name under the noses of every liberal in the country. Infuriate the hell out of 'em.

The Left in this country doesn't have any qualms about this and that when it comes to liberal names. Everything across the fruited plain is named after Roosevelt, Kennedy, Robert Byrd and Martin Luther King.

Let's take advantage of every available opportunity to promote RR's name, even if it's a local school or post office. Don't let the Left step into any vacuums with the names of it's socialist heroes, because it will !!!

Vote now !!!

Well, there’s already a road named after Mr. Obama in Orlando, FL, my former home town. It’s in Metrowest, one of the newer neighborhoods, but of course it could always become a bad neighborhood in the future.

If we call it the Ronald Reagan Bridge, that should keep Mr. Obama from ever visiting Louisville again. Not that he likes coming here, anyway. Both of his trips to Kentucky (2008 and 2011) were brief in-and-out stops that didn’t last more than three hours, so he couldn’t have gotten a good look at our state.
