Even if what you believe to be true, was actually true, what does that have
to do with the facts about the economy that I posted, that you chose to
Repost of the facts;
The Reagan Presidency that
eventually reversed the Carter double digit inflation, interest rates and
unemployment and the return to a smaller federal government, with lower tax
RATES for all Americans, led to over twenty years of sustained growth in
both the GNP and the GDP.
You have no idea what you are talking about! What led to today's problems
was the Dims regaining control of the House and Senate and the reversal of
what Reagan began.
It has nothing at all to do with economics. I'm just providing some balance
every time you make Reagan out to be some kind of saint.
And what I said is absolutely true. I'd suggest a book for you, but I
suspect you don't like reading books.
Yes, Reagan and Paul Volcker. Volcker's bravery and insight in jacking
interest rates was something the timid Bernanke could NEVER do. And
something Burns and Miller never did.
Carter appointed Volcker, of course.
During his second term, Reagan appointed Alan Greenspan, a very significant
instigator in the recent housing and commodity bubbles.
Only during his first term. During Reagan's second term spending increased
quite a lot, resulting in a net INCREASE in the size of government over the
entire eight years.
Lower taxes are always good. Reagan did good there, certainly. And so did
Clinton. Cigar Billy was actually a pretty good president as far as taxing
and spending went.
What led to today's problems was the abandonment of the "Contract with
America" (anybody remember that?), and the Republicans having grown snouts
and curly tails. It only got worse under Bush II, who spent more of your
money than anybody since LBJ. The Republicans lost power all by their very
Yeah, NOW the Repubs have suddenly got religion and are all hot for limited
government. AFTER they squandered what they had. Idiots.
Why do the pinkos always prevail? Because there's no real opposition.
People in general, politically, tend to think pink, even if they do quite
otherwise in most other areas of their lives.
