Awesome. We can do it again.
Yes. Yes, we can.
yeah and we see how well that went.
Let us look at a list of Ronald Reagan’s accomplishments:
>Ending the Cold War.
>”Reaganomics: Reagan’s mix of across-the-board tax cuts, deregulation, and domestic spending restraint helped fuel an economic boom that lasted two decades. Reagan inherited a misery index (the sum of the inflation and unemployment rates) of 19.99%, and when he left office it had dropped to 9.72%. President Obama take note: Under Reaganomics, 16 million new jobs were created.” (Directly from source, because well, I want to make sure you see this if you choose to not look at the link.)
>Revitalized the Conservative movement.
>Revitalized America as a military superpower after Nixon downsized. This was important due to the ever present threat of war with the Soviets still lingering. This included more money towards the space program.
>Gave the American people a morale boost with superb optimism and a since of togetherness and national pride.
>The famous “Star Wars” bluff, where Reagan pretty much took leadership, and lied through his teeth to the Soviets, saying that the U.S. had a missile defense system that could destroy a Soviet war head from space.
>Eliminated nuclear weapon numbers in an act of diplomacy with the U.S.S.R. and leading to future disarmament.
>A complete tax reform, simplifying tax code, increasing refunds, and other important measures, all of course sense nullified by Congress.
>Stopped Unions from striking, against the law due to public safety. Specifically with Air Traffic Control workers.
All of these, not to mention things such as the compensation of Japanese-Americans that were sent to internment camps, appointed the first female Supreme Court Justice, and more things.
I mean, there was a deficit, but nothing in relation towards what has been racked up in recent history, and was in part due to the purchase of foreign goods, and his refusal to interfere with free trade. However, when Reagan left office the nation was on its 6th year of economic prosperity. (x)
Basically, Reagan was one of the most successful presidents in the United States.
