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.

I presume you have never heard of Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Andrei Sakharov, Natan Sharansky or Lech Walesa?
