    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbsIdQt3E0A The best clips of the 1980 Debate between Reagan and loser president Jimmah Cartah! I think this illustrates the differences between capitalism and socialism and shows that Reagan is not to blame for the problems of the 80s but inherited the problems from the left. I wish there were more documentaries on how terrible things were in this country before Reagan took office. Sick of know nothing millennials and Generation X'ers and commie baby boomers who know nothing of how bad things really were and nothing about how things work posting lies on Youtube and elsewhere!

The proposal will reiterate Trumps plan to cut the corporate tax rate to 15%, Stephen Moore, who is the chief economist for the Heritage Foundation, and of one of the men on Trumps 13-member economic advisory team that the Republican presidential candidate announced Friday, said.

    White House press secretary Josh Earnest falsely and repeatedly claimed at Thursdays briefing that Barack Obama, not Ronald Reagan, was the first president since Dwight Eisenhower to win consecutive majorities of the popular vote. Even when he was corrected by a reporter, Earnest insisted Reagan did not get at least 50 percent of the vote twice. "I dont think it's a coincidence that President Obama is actually the first president since President Eisenhower to win two national elections back-to-back, earning a majority vote from the American people," Earnest said.

    The decision to release John Hinckley Jr. from St. Elizabeths psychiatric hospital after his attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan is outrageous, disgraceful, and a travesty of justice. No matter how much supervision he has, Hinckley cannot be trusted to move and function in society. Even though his victims, Reagan and White House press secretary James Brady, have died, Hinckley remains a threat. According to the Secret Service, he is still obsessed with Jodie Foster. Hinckleys actions remain a terrible stain on American history and a reminder of the lifetime of damage that can be caused by one man in...

Under the terms of his order, Hinckley is not allowed to contact his victims, their relatives or actress Jodie Foster, with whom he was obsessed. Hinckley also will not be permitted to "knowingly travel" to areas where the current president...

    Political journalists dream of a contested convention every presidential election. This year, it really seemed possible that Republicans would go into their convention without a nominee. Alas, it was not to be. In 1976, though, it actually happened. Republican President Gerald Ford, who ascended to the presidency after Richard Nixon resigned, faced a primary challenge from Ronald Reagan. What ensued was great political theater. Ford and Reagan traded victories during the primaries, and neither received a majority of delegates. Both entered the Republican National Convention in Kansas City, Missouri, unsure of the outcome. Then the loser (Reagan) ended up getting...

It's a season where conservatives from across the country meet to compare notes, share stories, and seek political consensus. The consensus forming this year however is an ominously dangerous one - ominously dangerous to conservatives themselves that is. Conservatives live in thrall to a historical myth, and this myth may soon cost us dearly. The myth is the myth of the Goldwater triumph of 1964. It goes approximately as follows: In 1964, after years of watered down politics, Republicans turned to a true conservative, Arizona Senator...

    As a species, humans tend to behave as a herd, following one another in opinion and action whether or not the consequences for doing so are dire. Of course, politicians and others holding seats of power, fully cognizant of the opportunities provided by this herd mentality, deftly manipulate the masses particularly through public polls during the lead-up to presidential elections. Most everyone comprehends how bias-infused political polling can be; however, the extent such polls play in the outcome of elections and, conversely, how their artfully constructed questions and population samples often miss the mark makes polling...

    In an unusually strong protectionist action, President Reagan today ordered a tenfold increase in tariffs for imported heavyweight motorycles. The impact of Mr. Reagan's action, which followed the unanimous recommendation of his trade advisers, is effectively limited to Japanese manufacturers, which dominate every sector of the American motorycycle market. The action was exceptional for protecting a single American company, the Harley-Davidson Motor Company of Milwaukee, the sole surviving American maker of motorcycles.

    The members of the #NeverTrump movement cite, in part, Donald Trumps position on trade as a reason why they cannot support their partys presumptive nominee, chosen by Republican voters. They argue that Trumps position on trade represents a betrayal of the Ronald Reagan legacy that defines virtually all thinking and rhetoric among the professional conservative class in Washington, D.C. However, there is one significant problem with this line of attack: namely, Reagans record on trade far more closely resembles Trumps position than it resembles the view of those in the #NeverTrump movement. In fact, by their own definition, Reagan would...

    But it does revolve around the conceit that the 40th president had no knowledge of where he was or what he was doing throughout his entire second term. The protagonist is Frank Corden, a low-level White House aide with a sweetly idealized view of American democracy. The first clues that Reagan is not in his right mind come early on: As Frank prepares coffee for Reagan re-election staffers, he overhears Treasury Secretary Don Regan (depicted as a stern, mentor-like figure) in a heated phone conversation with Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger (cartoonishly abusive, he's described as "all Brylcreem and forehead...

First there was Eisenhower reconciling the GOP with the New Deal. Then there was Reagan, who wrought a remarkable fusion of supply-side economics, anti-Soviet internationalism and social conservatism. And now? Excerpt: Mr. Trumps candidacy has showed that the cadre of genuine social conservatives is smaller than long assumed, that grass-roots Republican support for large military commitments in the Middle East has withered, and that the business community is politically homeless. So it has come to this:...

    In 1980, Ronald Reagan campaigned on a four point economic recovery plan. First, reduce tax rates, to increase incentives for job creation, investment, business start-ups and expansion, and wage growth due to the resulting increased demand for labor and increased productivity. Even liberal Keynesian economics holds that tax cuts are pro-growth. Two, reduce regulatory costs and barriers to business, which can act as further tax cuts. Three, reduce federal spending, to reduce the governments drain on the private sector. And four, restrain monetary policy to restore a stable value for the dollar. After Reagan led adoption of those policies in...

    Ive resented anyone telling me how I should live my life since I was a teenager. Ive always felt that you should be free to destroy yourself with alcohol, drugs, sex or gambling, just dont require me to support the disasters that result. Any obligation I have in that regard comes from my relationship with God, not from any contract drawn up by man. I waited for 16 years from Barry Goldwaters defeat to Ronald Reagans victory for a supposedly true conservative to take over the Oval Office. In the meantime, I had to make due with William F. Buckleys...

    In an unusually strong protectionist action, President Reagan today ordered a tenfold increase in tariffs for imported heavyweight motorycles. The impact of Mr. Reagan's action, which followed the unanimous recommendation of his trade advisers, is effectively limited to Japanese manufacturers, which dominate every sector of the American motorycycle market. The action was exceptional for protecting a single American company, the Harley-Davidson Motor Company of Milwaukee, the sole surviving American maker of motorcycles. The only comparable trade action by this Administration, the President's decision last May to impose quotas on sugar imports for the first time since 1974, was aimed at...

    When President Reagan imposed a 100 percent tariff on selected Japanese electronics in 1987, he and the press gave the impression that this was an act of desperation. Pictured was a long-forbearing president whose patience was exhausted by the recalcitrant and conniving Japanese. After trying for years to elicit some fairness out of them, went the story, the usually good-natured president had finally had enough. When newspapers and television networks announced the tariffs, the media reminded the public that such restraints were imposed by a staunch free trader. The less-than-subtle message was that if "Free Trader" Ronald Reagan thought the...

    Donald J. Trump, girding for a long battle over presidential delegates and a potential floor fight at the Cleveland convention, has enlisted the veteran Republican strategist Paul J. Manafort to lead his delegate-corralling efforts, according to people briefed on Mr. Trumps plans. Mr. Trump confirmed the hire in a brief telephone interview. Yes, he said, it is true. Mr. Manafort, 66, is among the few political hands in either party with direct experience managing nomination fights: As a young Republican operative, he helped manage the 1976 convention floor for Gerald Ford in his showdown with Ronald Reagan, the last time...
