    Reagan was President, not a dictator. He had a Democrat Congress, back before Democrats became homogenized and converted to Socialism so he was able to pass part of his agenda, but they lied to him that they would cut spending.

    See, in American Congress makes the budget.

    Much as I liked Reagan...

    The government grew significantly at his direction and tripling the existing deficit is not less spending. The only part he is right on was that Reagan supported deregulation.

    It is amazing the mythical qualities Reagan has with Republicans

    Ronald Reagan: He could never live up to his own rhetoric, but that didn't stop the Right Wing Lunacy from embracing him and building huge government paid (taxes) projects with his name on them. :lol:
