Ronnie Raygun. The gift that keeps on giving.

The board righties have Ronnie, and tricky Dick to thank for my political leanings. Thanks to the internet, i'll be the gift that keeps on giving for many many years. And i'm just getting warmed up.
Oh my goodness! I forget the opinion of the Military Industrial Complex here, but The Reagan Administration also replaced all research on poverty with research on welfare fraud, and the findings of this research was used to scapegoat the poor for our economic problems, caused by OPEC oil embargo to the US. Immediately, domestic budgets were slashed when the recession had greatly increased the need for help, and Reagan poured money into military spending, including granting arms to mid east countries, leading us to the problem we have today.

What Reagan did was made possible by the Eisenhower administration, because it was the Eisenhower administration that put the Military Industrial Complex in place. This includes giving the government power to control research and the media.

As we should all know there was a huge shift in wealth and power, and in the US inequality is worse than any other modern economy.

If someone were serious about checking out the government documents at the U of O library, I can put someone up for 2 weeks. I think these documents should be put on the internet so they are easy to access.

One more thing the war on drugs was tied to our military, giving our military questionable power in South America, and funding drug education for children.

It is not rocket science to know that Reagan was born a long time ago, but never met Jefferson or Madison.

There are three Presidents in a class of their own regarding contempt for the Constitution: Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Obama.
Good grief man. The most obvious forfeiture fiasco would be the witch hunts. What we started doing since Eisenhower, is no better than the terrible wrongs that were done in Europe, and the reason for our separation from Britain was to correct the wrongs of that government. We protected people from search and seizure and made it possible for them to not testify against themselves, and we actually did protect people's privacy and in the last few years, we have violated just about everything the US stood for.

We are the New World Order than we defended our democracy against, and the Bush family was a little bold about enjoying this.

I am not sure what your point is other than hackneyed blame anyone with a "R" next to their name, but if you want to bring up a president and what we fought Britian over, you are using a president in the wrong century.

Laugh, I assume you are kidding. Safe from what the witches?

I think I would feel safer if we returned to education in history and liberal education.

"In the past, personal and political liberty depended to a considerable extent upon governmental inefficiency. The spirit of tyranny was always more than willing; but its organization and material equipment were generally weak. Progressive science and technology have changed all this completely." Aldous Huxley

Education for technology is excellent for manifesting the problem. Liberal education is essential to our liberty.

PS I am not a Dick. I am a Jane.
