    What was the point of Reagan crushing the Soviet Empire if the ultimate effect was that Democrats would fully and proudly embrace the Communist Party Platform?

    Tea Party Republicans are attempting to hold the country hostage by refusing to allow a routine adjustment in the nation's debt ceiling...

    Reagan did not crush the Soviet empire. Thats just another con wet dream about their messiah Ronnie. Just like he did not expand government and did not have the largest tax increase in US history.

    Better question is, if Reagan crushed the Soviet Union, why do rightwingers keep citing Russia as a reason we have to spend ourselves bankrupt on defense?

    We can wipe out the entire Russian conventional military with the firepower on the CVN-76, the USS Ronald Reagan. Where do you get your silly ideas?

    The above is leftwing revisionist history (actually an EXCEPTIONALLY dimwitted dupe version) that they started to cover up their decades long kowtowing to, apologizing for, and even propping up of the worst murder machine that ever existed.
