Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

Ronald Wilson Reagan - American Icon, American Hero

A sad day it is upon learning of the death of our 40th President. Much more elegant words will flood the media than I can dare to write. Suffice it to say that he & I share the same values, the same beliefs in America, the same hopes for a better country & a better world.

Ronald Reagan brought to the White House a sense of hope when we as a people were floundering in high interest rates, high inflation rates, high unemployment, & a festering despair that the Cold War was being lost.

He had strong core beliefs, strong convictions, & he acted upon them to better the country & the world, despite the villification & smarmy jokes from those who opposed him.

And he was good to his word - inflation down dramatically, interest rates down dramatically, the promised tax cuts. But it was his unflinching belief that we could & would win the Cold War that will be his most profound & enduring legacy.

And above all else - his humor, his belief in the inherent goodness of people, his belief in his God - the man had character. And more so, he had class.

He & I share the same birthday, February 6, & so my affinity toward him is even that more personal.

RIP Mr. President.

I completely agree. Ronald Reagan became President exactly when we needed him. And for what he did we owe him our undying admiration & thanks.

I agree with you; people I know refer to his death as him "having bought it" and the funeral procession as his "dead parade". Their absolutely repulsive opinions of this great man make me sick.

I'd like to see what you think about my Blogger: http://conservativeconfessions.blogspot.com

He did many great things but erred in trying to serve two gods. Corporate America is usually at odds with God's values.

He was a great capitalist. Just look at the banner headlining this post. I now know where to go to buy Ronald Reagan action figurines. Nancy must be proud of this legacy.

I went to the mentioned website. I guess his religion only allowed him to care for people and children that were only born American or maybe only rich. Yes. A great american president.

Gee- maybe that website has its own agenda, ya think?. Yes, he was a great President. Reagan did not wear his compassion for people on his sleeve like so many phony politicians seeking only to pander for votes.

If you got to know Reagan through his letters, through his frequent phone calls to average folks he read or heard about, maybe you could see that side of him.

You may disagree with his politics, but yes, he was a decent, compassionate man. It is your loss not knowing this.

Thanks. Maybe an article called, "The Politics of Chess" or "How To Toast Your Opponent", by Rich Kmiec. Ack Ack.

One of the most important legacies of a man is his children. Ronald Reagan II spoke yesterday at the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION. At least for him the Republican party has lost it’s way.

Junior Boy was never in the Republican Party to begin with, so what he has to say is irrelevant. If anyone has lost his way it is Junior. Here's one acorn that fell very far from the tree.
