    Ima, just for one day, could you dispense with the juvenile name calling?

    Since this is a cogent comment, I’m distressed by your phrase here: “Normally, I’m on your side”

    “Reagan was a leader. O is a community dis-organizer and country destroyer.”

    Keep it light, Ms. Ima(nut job).

    About Reagan, one should also read Sleep Walking Through History to learn about who was pulling his strings and how he was groomed before becoming governor.

    On election night, 1980, when it became obvious that RR was going to win, I commented to friends that we were witnessing the beginning of the end of our country as we knew it.
    Sadly, I was correct. Through Reagan and 2 Bushes our country has been in the hands of an evil group of men like Cheney and Wolfowitz (Reagan’s “Kitchen Cabinet”). Men smart enough to know that they would not be electable, and greedy enough to turn the US of A into a 3rd world nation of Big Haves and a multitude of Have Not’s.
    Reagan was nothing more than a figurehead; Bush the Lesser as well (tho’ GHW Bush was shrewd enough to actually be a part of the conspiracy).
    This arm of the GOP has ravaged the Middle Class and brought America to the brink of financial ruin more than once, while cleaning up, financially, on the ruins.
    But they promote God and guns, trash gays and immigrants and pull in the votes of people clearly voting against their own interests.

    This is wildly incorrect. Reagan was head of the Screen Actor’s Guild in the 1940s and was known to go after communists in Hollywood. In the 1950s he was spokesman for GE after his career faded. It was during the 1950s that he moved towards the Republican Party over taxation.

    @Gary McSpook
    And that’s how they try to hijack me every election. I’ll admit I’m socially conservative in many ways, but freedom belongs to the people. Not our corporate masters. If an issue and a proposed law survives it’s by grassroots support by the people through their representatives. Although some of the legislation moving through these days are causing to become the thing I hate the most: a one issue voter.
    I had an interesting debate with someone on an NPR article comments about Super PACs. He couldn’t understand how the billions of dollars from anonymous donors funneled through Super PACs translated into votes.

    @Orthodox Catholic and Agent Smith:

    THANK YOU. First off, I appreciate your understanding of the real, buried legacy of the Reagan/Bush years.

    More importantly, you have helped prove my point. There are many things liberals and conservatives can agree on. We are not mutually exclusive. We may disagree on the extent of the problem, the importance, or the methods of remediation, but we are not always polar opposites, as many Americans seem to believe.

    If you want to know who is REALLY trying to destroy America, look to the people who are turning us against each other to distract us from what they’re doing.

    Again, thank you, a thousand times, thank you.

    A very reasonable post. The early Christian Church, or I should say the very early Christian church, (the book of Acts church in fact) had as its economic policy a policy closer to the pure idealism of pure communism than anything has ever had in human history (and the USSR versions was only window dressing Communism by comparison, and was actually just another dictatorship such as NAZI Germany was). The pure idealistic Communist creed of’ “From each according to his ability, and to each according to his need.” has never been an actual working policy more anywhere than in that early church!

    But what made that a “happy” time was simply that particular version of “Community Communism” was controlled by men that had actually walked with and still followed the Lord Jesus Christ very closely! That is the ONLY way that such an idealistic form of human activity will ever work. And, by the way, was a long time before the “official” Christian church even existed. True idealistic Communism ignores human nature totally, and therefore will never work while controlled by human beings, It is simple, if I work twice as hard as my neighbor, then I want twice as much of the materialist “goodies” that life has to offer us, regardless of his particular needs. This is not actually an evil in itself, but can very easily lead to one of the worst of human sins, in GREED. And unfortunately it would seem that such is the current mantra of a large part of humility, especially here in this country. It is that particular moral breakdown that is destroying the health of the people of the US, not our sexual immorality (that is a symptom, not a cause).
    I really wish in compassion and love that more Christians (and especially American Christians) understood that!!!

    “In a couple of weeks I’ll be on a cruise ship to Alaska and you will get your wish.”

    Must we wait? Couldn’t you leave now? And given your disgust with the way the country is being run, couldn’t you stay away?
    I’ve heard that Eskimos are quite conservative. They might worship you as some sort of Neo-con god.
