The neocons are certainly as evil as the progressive but, Reagan is not my hero either.
While his rhetoric was inspiring he was never more than a paid mouth piece his whole life ironically starting with GE back in the 50's.
We just all wanted to believe. In turn he pulled out the credit card to "defeat" communism while enslaving us with debt. Fair trade??? I say no.
The corporate masters chose well in Reagan and we bought it.
BTW, If he would have gotten rid of the DEPT of EDU as promised we still would have had a chance to educate our own kids locally but, turns out it was too great of a public opinion tool to give up.
