Exactly. Reagan was one of the luckiest men alive. In the right place at the right time. His weapon was American money and shallow platitudes.. I would get so angry watching him play his Hollywood persona. He pretended to be selling ideals of Freedom to the world, but was continuing to sell the promise of American Affluence as has been done since the 1950s. .As Affluence wanned in economic downturns or when other countries attained it, sometimes without the basics of Freedom for their citizens, America lost its advantage.
