Nancy and her astrologers, but somehow his relations with soothsayers was fine with the religious right. I never will understand that.

Remember how Questions about Reagans age/health came up before his second term and he promised to resign if it did?

Hey, I used to protest Him, back in the day, you know, Ronald Wilson Reagan, 666. Peace not War. All the good stuff. I did not come to appreciate His Wisdom, Resiliance, Character, until later. :D Great Man. :):):)

Reagan claimed to be anti-socialist but the Democrats in congress forced him to double social security taxes & sign the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) "Patient Anti-Dumping Act" into law.

Strange how the ones now who say they are not neocons still worship Reagan the founder of the modern day neocons.

The late great Bear Flag Republic
Governor Reagan, of the late, great state of California, signed into law the biggest tax increase in the state's history.

Yet, he was elected as a conservative president. Ironic, isn't it?

Amazing how reagan pretty much doubled the national debt and is praised by the right but carter actually dropped the national debt and is viewed by the right as the worst president.
