President Reagan passes away
President Reagan has passed away.
President Reagan was a great man and a great President. His aggressive foreign policy hastened the downfall of the Soviet Union, which he correctly dubbed the "Evil Empire". This was President Reagan's biggest accomplishment.
Reagan revitalized the conservative movement, giving strength to the notion that "government is not the solution, government is the problem."
It is unfortunate that some on the Left cannot let go of their hate for President Reagan long enough to let his family grieve. Following are some comments from DemocraticUnderground.com:
I will not say that it is inappropriate to discuss President Reagan's record as President during this sad time. It's one thing to discuss his performance as President. It is another thing entirely to launch the hateful personal attacks seen at "Democratic Underground". This kind of personal vindictiveness has no place in American politics.
