How fortunate I am to have been born when I was.  I grew up with 8 years of Mr. President and I didn't worry about the god-damned commies because I knew he had my back.

No president since has inspired that kind of trust.  No president since has inspired that kind of optimism.  No president since has inspired that kind of fear in our enemies.  They knew Reagan would kill them and they were right.

He wasn't a perfect man but he was MY president.

By far the best President of my lifetime.  America could use another one like him.  Sure he had his faults but he was a good man.

Personally he had many faults, but one of them was not his love of country, lhis love of our system, his love of Americans. Who would think that a B list actor who grew up in a small Illinois town, went to a small Illinois college, who had been divorced, a one time FDR democrat, would end up being one of the finest presidents we've ever had?

I remember him for his talk about how government was the problem and then began spending even more money.  Then came the NFA '86.  Still, RR was better than any of his successors.

I've said this before;



I was born in 1979, so my first memories are with Ronald Reagan as president and with Jesse Helms as senator from my state.  I thought that was normal...



I had no idea I was living in a time of such greatness.

Reagan was president from when I was 10 until I was 18.

I vividly remember being in middle school math class, and hearing the news that the American embassy hostages held in Iran had just left Iranian air space. There was a general cheer throughout the building.

Since Reagan, we've had Bush the 1st, Slick Willy twice, Bush Jr twice, and now bHo twice.

Can't say the trend looks to get better any time soon, either.

As a kid, I remember those speeches, especially when we lost the Challenger. He knew kids all over witnessed it  in schools and were watching.

He spoke in a soothing grandfatherly like tone to us all, and made as much sense as we could out of that horrible day.


A great man.

I agree.





Reagan is the only Presidential candidate I have actually voted for, instead of voting against "that other dude".

OP - of all the complete and utter bullshit, time-wasting, lack of substance posts that you initiate as the site's possibly undeniable resident thread & post whore, in this thread you got it right.

I joined the .mil in the Carter years and it was never so uplifting to have a man elected with the backbone thant we needed in what would become the waning years of the cold war.  Despite his faults, I for one will remember him as one of the greatest leaders of the modern era.

Well, look, we ALL know how hard Reagan lobbied for that MG ban.

He wasn't going to let that one go, no matter HOW hard the Dems tried to talk him out of it.

Too bad we don't live under more Democrat rule. Then we'd be able to own any gun we want, MG or not, without NFA or carry permits. It'd be a gun owner's paradise.

A lead-from-the-front leader. He got stuff done, and sometimes got some mud on his trousers while he pushed and pushed on the breaking-down car stuck in the mud...

A purist? Perfect? Not in a million years. Trash him all you want. He never had a partisan majority in his favor.

He is the modern yardstick they will all be compared against...

He was my first CIC, an inspiration and will alway have a special place in my heart. I can't help but to think that tyrant H.W. Bush was was doing  a lot of of treacherous neocon dealings behind his back, especially in the latter years when President Reagan's memory was fading, but the Reagan years were still good years. At the very least he brought a lot of dignity to the office, and at the most he was the best president I have seen and will ever see in my lifetime.

Yeah, but lest we forget, the MSM and the democrats were whipping that horse as hard as they could at the time as well; it was the zeitgeist of the 80s.

Fuckbags like Peter Jennings were hosting 2-hour specials on why we needed to make drugs illegal-er because after 40 years of prohibition, kids were smoking crack instead of pot

I don't know, bro... I don't understand where the angst and viritriol for Reagan's leadership comes from...

From the "left" I understand... "He drove us into debt, waaaa, waaaa!-!"

Yeah, he did. He kicked the Soviet Unions teeth in, while refusing to raise taxes, to keep our economy moving and the Democrat majorities in congress kept trying to pay for social programs...

I understand the hostility towards him from the *left*

But folks who claim to be on the *right* side of the line... "Reagan wasnt pure enough for my discerning conservative tastes..."

What a bunch of illiterate retarded morons. Reagan never had a majority in congress...

They refuse to acknowledge the alternatives to what Reagan accomplished... Reagan didnt live and work in a vacuum. He dealt with Democrat majorities, and a liberal media...

For what he was handed, Reagan accomplished a great deal in the name of preserving, protecting, and promoting conservative ideals...

I dont understand these head-in-the-sand purists who come out of the woodwork to take cheap-shots at Reagan... Reagan wasnt perfect... Reagan wasnt a "pure" conservative in every little iota of his political career.

But he won. He made it cool to be a conservative. The conservative side of the line had been dismantled after Goldwater and Nixon. Reagan made conservative ideology cool again... He effectively argued conservative ideals against Democrats...

Reagan won, and dealt with majority-Democrats to push conservative ideologies... He was a good man, and a good leader. He loved America, and he honestly tried to emulate the Founding Fathers...

The "perfect" conservative only exists in the minds of liberals and retards. The liberals hope for a "perfect" conservative so they have a perfect straw-man to tear-down... And the retards can sit on the sidelines of political reality with the excuse that they are just waiting for a perfect candidate to come-along.

Folks... If Ronald Reagan does not meet your standards for what you like in a -electable- conservative, then you are either... 1. A Democrat. Get off this site, gun-grabber. -or- 2. Retarded. Go get some help from a professional.

He gave us the firearm owners protection act and new faces in the control towers

from sea to shining sea. He set free the collage students in Granada and hung


Oliver North out to dry over Iran Contra and drove Robert McFarlane to an over dose.







I voted for him twice because he gave us something that we had been lacking since Vietnam..Self respect.
