He was one of the good ones.




WASHINGTON - Ronald Reagan, the cheerful crusader who devoted his presidency to winning the Cold War, trying to scale back government and making people believe it was ?morning again in America,? died Saturday after a long twilight struggle with Alzheimer?s disease, a family friend said. He was 93.

Am I the only one that finds its horribly ironic that while Nancy Reagan was running around the country spouting her anti-drug propaganda, the CIA (and other assorted Bushites) were importing and distributing cocaine on US soil?

:penis: Woo hoo!! Hooray for hypocrisy!!

One of the biggest myths about Reagan is the general credit his presidency receives for "ending the Cold War." Bullshit - the Soviet Union collapsed on itself due to the inherent instability of central planning.

Little belief on my part - it is historical fact. The centralized economy of the Soviet Union collapsed on itself; reforms were attempted; people were unhappy, so they supported the coup. Period.

well yes, literally, he had a role :tongue: but he didnt "end it" via his policies.

There seems to be a meme that the Reagan administration "won the Cold War" and "saved America from the Commies" - that is utter bullshit. If a boxer collapses during a fight due to heart-attack, does that mean his opponent was victorious boxer? The opponent might get the points, but that dont mean he defeated the boxer - he just won it technically.

I think that America won the cold war. Ronald Reagan did more for that cause than any other President. The evil empire is no more. He was a great American.

Every flag should be at half mast. Ronald Reagan was an American icon. May God Bless America.

Reagan took office when I was in junior high school. I couldn't believe it wasn't a national holiday and I insisted upon staying home from school so I could watch it live. I still remember parts of his address.

I have the highest respect and yes, love for President Reagan- he was the right man at the right time.

For those who say he didn't win the cold war, in a sense you are right- no single person can get the credit for that. But no single individual deserves more credit than Ronald Reagan and history will bear that out. Yes, the Soviet economy collapsed, but it was due to its inability to keep pace with the US buildup and the challenge that presented caused a collapse. They were already devoting a huge share of their economy to their military- our military buildup and economic recovery, and recovery of national spirit and will are due to the policies of one Ronald Wilson Reagan.

He was a great and beloved President and anyone not blinded by ideology can see that very clearly.

Farewell.  :thumbup: :heart:
