A president should help our country move forward, not just be some entertainer with a personality. To call Ronald Reagan a great president is a disgrace, i mean he nearly destroyed our economy. And why is he all of a sudden the man who stood up to Communism? A) they were already falling apart and B) why did we care so much, can't people have an economic system not based on greed. Even if they messed it up with their dictators and horrible treatment, i dont see why Reagan is now being said to have single-handedly sestroyed it. Also, i think its good that theres at least one political thread here, i mean its in different conversations. Political debate is interesting, and mister charlie, your views are right on.
