Ronald Reagan, our 40th President is known by conservatives to be a champion of the common man. But when you look at the facts, that makes no sense whatsoever. The first round will be just breifly presenting your reasons and then we will dive into them in later rounds. Here are my reasons.

1. He increased the national debt DRAMATICALLY on unnecessary tax cuts for the rich and unnecessary defense programs that made the whole world dislike us.

3. To pick up the tab on the tax cuts for the rich, he raised taxes on the middle class 11 times.

4. He didnt really END the Cold War, he just borrowed enough money to lie about his Star Wars missions, then took advantage of the Soviets who were already in decline.

5. He stirred up violence and helped to instate dictatorships in Cental America "in the name of fight Communism"

6. He made an illegal arms deal with Iran and used it to fund the very dictatorships I just mentioned.

7. His economic polies caused a recession.

8. The Cold War was pretty much won before Reagan entered office.

(I know this list is not yet backed up by facts, I will do that in future rounds)

Reagan isnt looking as good, is he?

futurepresident7, it would be a critical idea to include sources.
