After the last coming of the current administration's ilk, we got this dude. He was born on this day in 1911.
Why was Ronald Reagan so earth changing? Because his ideology was not prone to daily fluctuations. He knew the difference between right and wrong, PLUS! used that knowledge to make his decisions. He made it cool to be a normal person again after fifteen solid years of moronic leftism.
I shook hands with this guy back in the late 1970s when my grandfather took me to one of Reagan's stops in Pearl, Mississippi at Howard's department store. Much has been made this week about the current president being an abnormality by being middle class. Although, Barack Obama was NEVER middle class, most of our presidents from the twentieth century WERE.
Ronald Reagan was a Depression Era success story that loved his country. Much unlike the current administration that obviously hates the very principles upon which our country was founded. There is a stark difference in ideology.
Reagan was not the end-all, be-all for me. He was simply a figurehead of a movement of individualists that did what they could to right the wrongs of collectivism and the moral depravity to which that ideology leads.
Without any doubt, Ronald Reagan was and has been the best president in my lifetime. You are missed, President Forty.
(As an aside, George W. Bush has been the second best president in my lifetime and there is NO disputing that with facts, either.)
