All you Republicans out there just need another war with 'boots on the ground' to lift your spirits. It's too bad for you guys that No boots were on the ground in Libya, Obama has pulled us out of Iraq with plans to get the hell out of Afghanistan. Libya was truly a lost opportunity in your book. Dreams of turning Tehran into a 'sea of glass' will have to wait a few more years. God Bless!

Republicans say Ronald Reagan brought down the Soviet Union. Hog wash! In fact, Ronald Wilson Reagan appeased it. He lifted the grain embargo Jimmy Carter imposed on the USSR when they invaded Afghanistan. Reagan SUBSIDIZED corn and wheat sales to the Soviet Union. He boasted, "I made a loaf of bread cheaper in Moscow than in any town in America." The USSR consistently spent 25% of GDP on defense in the 1950's, the 60's, 70's and the 80's. To think otherwise exhibits NO knowledge of Soviet history. Ronald Wilson Reagan was also an appeaser of Islamic fanaticism. I presume you have never heard of Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Andrei Sakharov, Natan Sharansky or Lech Walesa?

By 1985, the CIA's network of Soviet-bloc agents began disappearing at an alarming rate. The CIA realized something was wrong, but was reluctant to consider the possibility of an agency mole. Initial investigations focused on possible breaches caused by Soviet bugs or by a broken code. The CIA then blamed asset losses on another former CIA agent, Edward Lee Howard, who had also been passing information to the Soviets. But when the CIA lost three other important sources of information about whom Howard could have known nothing, it was clear that the arrests (and executions) originated from another source. Let's cut to the chase. The Soviet Union collapsed despite the USA, not because of it. Capiche?

Card-carrying Republicans and dupes of the Republican party have been instructed to say that the USA and Ronald Reagan did a lot to help Solidarity (of Poland) and other anti-Communists in defeating the USSR in the 1980's. Here's the scoop; remember Aldrich Ames? Aldrich Ames has been in prison for several decades now. Aldrich Ames worked in the CIA for the Soviet-East European Division in Washington, placing him "in the most sensitive element" of the Department of Operations because it was responsible for Soviet counterintelligence activities. Ames had access to all CIA plans and operations against the KGB and the GRU, Soviet military intelligence.

Let's talk of Ronald Reagan, China and U.S satellite launches. Republicans say, "Clinton transferred missile technology to China." Ronald Reagan started it. http://www.bis.doc.gov/news/archive98/sattest.htm "President Reagan began this policy in light of the growing demand for satellite launches. http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/space/IB93062.pdf U.S. Satellite Exports to China: 1988-1997. In September 1988, the U.S. government agreed to grant export licenses for satellites to be launched by China. The Reagan Administration granted the licenses on conditions that China sign international treaties. and http://www.nytimes.com/1988/09/09/business/most-reagan-officials-back-satellite-exports-to-china.html

And the US taxpayer is still BAILING out the VICTIMS 25 years later. Reagan whole-heartedly and cold heartedly believed in the Marxist redistribution of wealth from America's east and west coasts to America's heartland. And now, in the year 2012, with farm subsidy handouts and ethanol mandates peaking at $35 billion a year, are we any closer to a free market in agriculture? Again, why does the vast majority of these farm handouts go to people who are card-carrying members of the Republican Party?
