Reagan would have been at the Tea Party rallies. No doubt.
“Reagan would have been at the Tea Party rallies” - Amen to that.
Reagan drew his inspiration from the stories of the days when men stood astride this nation, shore to shore and border to border. Somehow, there seem to be very few such stories being studied or even related today. Those who are in positions of power in the financial and business worlds, seem both timid and devious at the same time, as if they were ashamed of what they had to do to get where they are at. Men in high positions in the government who have never had to go out and defend the honor and trust of the nation in a meaningful way, seem willing to trade away that honor and trust for personal advantage, and for obscure goals in trying to create a fantasy world that has never been functional at any time in history.
Obama has no inkling of what a magnificent force of nature Ronald Reagan was, able to wrest control of the “bully pulpit” of the Presidency from the hands of those who would not, could not, use its potential for the common good, not only of America, but the world, building that beacon that stood at the center of the shining city on the hill.
Perhaps the Reagan era was not America’s finest hour, but those were pretty good times.
Especially considering the dystopia we have sunk into, and which promises to become much, much worse.
