I remember because I unfortunately had a variable interest loan. When he left 8 yrs later all three "indicators" were about 7-8% and Americans had a sense of dignity again. There was a new respect for the country and ourselves. So show us some real facts about "bad Reagan" or please stop spouting repeated rhetoric. Some of us "old farts" know how it was.
    Just stumbled across this: Remember Ronald Reagan's great compliment: "Most of us wonder if our lives made any difference. Marines don't have that problem."
    Makes an old "Leatherneck" proud.
    It's amazing that anybody who reads this site could post such a remark.

    Google 'Mulford Act' and 'Hughes Amendment' for two examples of Reagan's disregard for 2nd Amendment Rights. These, among others, have been extensively discussed and linked to on this forum.
    And how about that Lebanon policy? Are Marines proud of his actions in 1983 Lebanon?

    The readers of this forum really should learn to use the 'search' ...

    I have to think that you don't, so could you be a little more clear on what it is you are trying to say. Are you refering to the "values" or "morals" of the "Jacksoinan" era? Or the actual man?

    He fought hard to keep the international bankers from getting control of our money in this country. Eventually they got control when there were enough traitors in congress to vote in the federal reserve act and a puppet in the Oval Office, i.e. Wilson. Ever sense the Wilson era we have had the misfortune of having to some degree or another a Marxist/socialist president controlled by those behind the scenes that want a One World Government/NWO i.e. FDR. By the way as far as the slave owner thing they still own slaves only now the middle class is their slaves.

    Midnight, you're kidding right? FDR was a socialist and the New Deal was nothing more than government control programs at a high price for the taxpayer! I refer you to this article at the Cato Institute website: How FDR's New Deal Harmed Millions of Poor People | Jim Powell | Cato Institute: Daily Commentary

    Obama is determined to follow in FDR's footsteps...raising taxes to pay for government programs...resulting in less money for you and I to purchase luxury items and, in many cases the bare necessities of life...causing businesses to layoff workers...meaning fewer taxpayers...resulting in raising taxes to pay for government programs. It's a vicious circle of assured economic failure. To read more: Obama Describes His “New Deal” Program

    BTW, the New Deal did NOT end the Great Depressopm. World War II did!

    Again, Midnight, you have a lot to learn about United States history...the REAL history...not what has been misrepresented or ignored by the Progressives and the msm.

    Hi HK,
    I see, thanks for clearing up your POV. Check out this link:
    Resource Based Economy
    Please do not let the use of the word "social" cloud your view here. I notice on this forum and in all the media, anytime someone mentions the word "social", the main object of discussion seems to be lost.
    The fear that has been drilled into the American public head about any socialist government system really prevents discussion about what it really means.
    Anyway, that is another subject. Take a look at the link, think abbout our current economic system and share your thoughts.

    1984... I recall it ended badly for Winston...

    I'm sure the Venus project will keep it's participants well regulated and controlled. Sounds like a dream..

    Well armed and liberal, that is until the government which you support tells you that you can no longer be armed. Then it's just liberal...

    No Thanks... I'll keep resisting and fighting with the patriots...

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    What did you expect? Another drastic and undesired side effect of the Socialist Liberal Kool-Aid...

    From the Resource Based Economy website: "We must emphasize that this approach to global governance has nothing whatever in common with the present aims of an elite to form a world government with themselves and large corporations at the helm, and the vast majority of the world's population subservient to them. Our vision of globalization empowers each and every person on the planet to be the best they can be, not to live in abject subjugation to a corporate governing body."

    It is a worthy goal to strive for. Nowhere is the mention of taking away your guns, religion or culture. In fact, if you follow its logic to the end, the latter two would be strengthened and therfore, ipso facto, the former!

    WAL, from your link:
    "The Venus Project proposes a social system in which automation and technology would be intelligently integrated into an overall social design where the primary function would be to maximize the quality of life rather than profits."
    This concept only works if people are treated as, and allow themselves to be treated as bees, ants or termites. The USSR tried this in the 1920's and it didn't work.

    One of the cornerstones of the organization's findings is the fact that many of the dysfunctional behaviors of today's society stem directly from the dehumanizing environment of a monetary system.
    Do away with reimbursement for work done and you arrive at "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs." -Karl Marx

    I prefer "Capitalism demands the best of every man—his rationality—and rewards him accordingly. It leaves every man free to choose the work he likes, to specialize in it, to trade his product for the products of others, and to go as far on the road of achievement as his ability and ambition will carry him. His success depends on the objective value of his work and on the rationality of those who recognize that value. When men are free to trade, with reason and reality as their only arbiter, when no man may use physical force to extort the consent of another, it is the best product and the best judgment that win in every field of human endeavor, and raise the standard of living—and of thought—ever higher for all those who take part in mankind’s productive activity." - Ayn Rand, someone who personally experienced the utopia your rose colored glasses show you.
