    IMO, Reagan said little of deep thought nor intelligence.
    Government should always be efficient and controlled, but NOT big nor small..
    Extremists must be kept out…and this is NOT an easy thing to do….we must change from a state of war to that of peace..

    It seems that some (many(?)) have forgotten that their function is to serve the American people within the confines of the Constitution and law. It’s disheartening to learn that there are people in government service that believe they should use their position to promote their own or their superior’s political beliefs. It is grievous to learn that people in government service would use their position to suppress others that are not of their political beliefs.

    Why isn’t there a “thumbs up” option on gocomics?

    Reagan? Please. Biggest government expansion in the past fifty years, and the debt to show for it. You want government cut in size? Clinton and Obama have both done more for that than any Republican president.

    ^I would write that as “any OTHER republican president”. Clinton and Obama are following republican policies. in fact the reason the republicans are so angry is that Clinton ‘stole’ their agenda when they try to obstruct his.

    Pseudo-conservatives want fewer laws that limit freedoms, but only for issues they agree with. Everything they disagree with need to be limited with intrusive laws.

    Some people around here live in a fantasy land where Reagan only ever cut taxes and shrank government (and singlehandedly beat up communism with his bare fists), and America Ruled The World.
    I’m willing to believe that a few of them even think that Reagan beat Khrushchev in a cage match.

    I remember that fight. Khrushchev took off his shoe and started beating on Reagan with it.
    “I will bury you” wow what a fight it was.

    We ignore the truth at our peril.

    In free governments, the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors and sovereigns… – Benjamin Franklin

    It’s not tyranny we desire; it’s a just, limited, federal government. – Alexander Hamilton

    The Constitution ought to be the standard of construction for the laws, and that wherever there is an evident opposition, the laws ought to give place to the Constitution. – Alexander Hamilton

    The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them. – Patrick Henry

    A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take everything you have. – Thomas Jefferson

    Yep, men hundreds of years ago pointed out truth. Today we ignore and whine for the government to “protect me”.

    Reagan was the problem, not the solution.

    Two questions for “government is the problem” politicians:

    1: Why do you want so much to become part of the problem (i.e., why did you run for office if government is so bad)?

    2: Is the only answer to the problems of government to try to shut it down, or to make it better?

    I would think the latter, but most people who hate the government they’re part of seem to want to just dismantle it. I submit that is no better than allowing it to grow unfettered.

    @David

    OK I read it. Now I could just use the liberal tactic of denigrating your source.

    From Wiki:

    In his December 29, 2008, column for Truthdig, Hedges identified himself as a “socialist” in contrast to what he sees as “ruthless totalitarian capitalism.”

    On November 4 2011, Hedges was arrested with others in New York as part of the Occupy Wall Street demonstration

    But neither of those things (or the other items not mentioned about him) detract from his character IMO.

    Having read the article excerpts that you provided, I find these things to be opinion not relevant to the facts.

    I think we have powerful proto-fascist movements in this country, and I look at the Tea Party, the militia, the Christian right, where they celebrate the language of violence, they celebrate the gun culture

    The whole excerpt is nothing but hyperbole taken from left wing talking points and not how most conservatives feel.

    Then the next paragraph where you quote him saying – again it’s is his opinion – concerning “right wing” belief systems (I never knew that having faith was a right wing thing) And what you get when you enter that kind of ideological belief system is you no longer deal with reality.

    He goes on to imply that all people of faith then belief in “magic” that we are left waiting for someone else to shoulder our responsibilities (Jesus will protect and promote) is just extreme left insulting propaganda.

    So we are both entitled to our opinions.

    Now the other two quotes may indeed have some credence.
