Canuck, thanks for posting this! The Teabagging CONservative REpubs worship Ronald(6) Wilson(6) Reagan(6) while claiming "We are so Christian!" These same people criticize Democrats as great Govt spenders and deficit promoters when it was Reagan666 and his disciples that cut taxes to the wealthy while greatly increasing military spending and therefore, creating a huge Federal deficit by the time he left office in '88. It was Reagan666 and his disciples that made 'liberal' a bad word. I'm proud to be a liberal like Einstein, Lincoln, the Founding Fathers, and Jesus!

Most people do not realize that under reagans adminstration, the deficit went up 300 %


compare that to Bush or even Obama , where the deficit went up about 30%

Now tell me again how reagan was the greatest conservative president of the 20th century ?

LOL....but society is clueless...they will believe whatever the corrupt monopolizers of media tell them.

What was really bad about Reagan is that toward the end of his second term he was mentally unable to discharge the duties of the Presidency, and yet those around him just took it upon themselves to do his job themselves and utilize him as nothing less than a puppet.

That shit was highly illegal.

I have many true conservative values...and there was some things about Reagan I liked...

BUT.....

for those that pay attention, we can sum up Reagans term in one sentence...

He allowed america to be sold out to the highest bidders
{ deregulation} regardless of the bidders agendas, morals or integrity thereby allowing America to have another 10-20 years of the wasteful good life.


The question is, will americans look back and think it was such a good idea to do this, once the " end of plenty" has arrived...WHICH WILL BE IN A FEW SHORT YEARS.

massive Deregulation and the implementation of derivitives are 2 of the main factors of the late 20th century , that has allowed corruptors to take greater hold of america and in return for that , america was allowed to have a few more years of the wasteful good life....

they may have one more trick up their sleeves , to prolong the wasteful good life for america , for a few more years...but of course that will be in exchange for giving THEM even more power/control over a few reamining venues.

Re: Reagan: “These (Taliban) gentlemen are the moral equivalents of America’s founding fathers.”
The Myths of Reaganomics

Let's run down the other important areas:

Government Spending. How well did Reagan succeed in cutting government spending, surely a critical ingredient in any plan to reduce the role of government in everyone's life? In 1980, the last year of free-spending Jimmy Carter the federal government spent $591 billion. In 1986, the last recorded year of the Reagan administration, the federal government spent $990 billion, an increase of 68%. Whatever this is, it is emphatically not reducing government expenditures.

Sophisticated economists say that these absolute numbers are an unfair comparison, that we should compare federal spending in these two years as percentage of gross national product. But this strikes me as unfair in the opposite direction, because the greater the amount of inflation generated by the federal government, the higher will be the GNP. We might then be complimenting the government on a lower percentage of spending achieved by the government's generating inflation by creating more money. But even taking these percentages of GNP figures, we get federal spending as percent of GNP in 1980 as 21.6%, and after six years of Reagan, 24.3%. A better comparison would be percentage of federal spending to net private product, that is, production of the private sector. That percentage was 31.1% in 1980, and a shocking 34.3% in 1986. So even using percentages, the Reagan administration has brought us a substantial increase in government spending.

Also, the excuse cannot be used that Congress massively increased Reagan's budget proposals. On the contrary, there was never much difference between Reagan's and Congress's budgets, and despite propaganda to the contrary, Reagan never proposed a cut in the total budget.

Deficits. The next, and admittedly the most embarrassing, failure of Reaganomic goals is the deficit. Jimmy Carter habitually ran deficits of $40-50 billion and, by the end, up to $74 billion; but by 1984, when Reagan had promised to achieve a balanced budget, the deficit had settled down comfortably to about $200 billion, a level that seems to be permanent, despite desperate attempts to cook the figures in one-shot reductions.

This is by far the largest budget deficit in American history. It is true that the $50 billion deficits in World War II were a much higher percentage of the GNP; but the point is that that was a temporary, one-shot situation, the product of war finance. But the war was over in a few years; and the current federal deficits now seem to be a recent, but still permanent part of the American heritage.

One of the most curious, and least edifying, sights in the Reagan era was to see the Reaganites completely change their tune of a lifetime. At the very beginning of the Reagan administration, the conservative Republicans in the House of Representatives, convinced that deficits would disappear immediately, received a terrific shock when they were asked by the Reagan administration to vote for the usual annual increase in the statutory debt limit. These Republicans, some literally with tears in their eyes, protested that never in their lives had they voted for an increase in the national debt limit, but they were doing it just this one time because they "trusted Ronald Reagan" to balance the budget from then on. The rest, alas, is history, and the conservative Republicans never saw fit to cry again. Instead, they found themselves adjusting rather easily to the new era of huge permanent deficits. The Gramm-Rudman law, allegedly designed to eradicate deficits in a few years, has now unsurprisingly bogged down in enduring confusion.
