This country has never been more capitalist and they have you fooled
in to thinking that it is more socialist.

Proof? Ask your parents or grandparents if they worked at a company that offered a REAL pension?

Define Reaganism and explain how it made you worse off than your uncle.

Pro-tip: you can't.

Do you even into the American System or Henry Clay? Do you even into the assassinations of FDR or JFK? Do you not realize the same people that elected these two guys also picked Reagan, who was shot by a Bush family friend and not really president for more than a year and half? Do facts even matter to you at all?

Reaganism is the idea that everything should be left to the free market and compete with chinese willing to live in dorm rooms making a dollar an hour.

Before Reaganism, even being a freaking meter reader was a good job.

Re: This country has never been more capitalist and they have you fooled
Currently US operates in various levels under all 3 economic systems, true free markets in it's totality has not existed in the US for some 100 odd years now, what you currently call capitalism is the merger/marriage of corporatacracy and government, operating under a fascistic security apparatus, all controlled by an oligarchy.

But now you are just making things up.

Reagan was an economic dirigist in large part. Star wars program was modeled after JFK's shot to the moon and meant to use the power of government to leverage investment in science and technology for the betterment of mankind.

“Lower rates of taxation will stimulate economic activity and so raise the levels of personal and corporate income as to yield within a few years an increased – not a reduced – flow of revenues to the federal government.”

“In today’s economy, fiscal prudence and responsibility call for tax reduction even if it temporarily enlarges the federal deficit – why reducing taxes is the best way open to us to increase revenues.”

“It is no contradiction – the most important single thing we can do to stimulate investment in today’s economy is to raise consumption by major reduction of individual income tax rates.”

“Our tax system still siphons out of the private economy too large a share of personal and business purchasing power and reduces the incentive for risk, investment and effort – thereby aborting our recoveries and stifling our national growth rate.”

“A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced federal budget. Every taxpayer and his family will have more money left over after taxes for a new car, a new home, new conveniences, education and investment. Every businessman can keep a higher percentage of his profits in his cash register or put it to work expanding or improving his business, and as the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues.”

All of these things were said by JFK.
