Republicans and Conservatives worship Ronald Reagan almost as much as they worship Jesus, even though he would not fit into the contemporary definition of what a Conservative President should be. Reagan was a terrible President for the following reasons;

Reagan sent the deficit skyrocketing, growing faster in real dollars than under any other president.

Under Reagan the United States went from the number one creditor nation in the world to the number one debtor nation in the world.

Reagan cut social spending to the bone and created the homeless problem by turning hundreds of thousands of mentally ill people out on the streets.

Reagan catastrophically lowered taxes in 1981, creating debt so bad he raised taxes each of the next six years and still didn't make up for it.

Reagan cut school funding and tried to classify ketchup as a vegetable.

Reagan's streamlining of the income tax created the largest-ever shift of tax burden from the wealthy to the middle-class and working poor, resulting in expanding the income gap, which continues 30 years later.

Reagan showed no leadership and ignored AIDS — the biggest health crisis of the century — while tens-of-thousands of people died.

Reagan traded arms, money, drugs and hostages between Iran and the Nicaraguan rebels.

Reagan gave chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein.

Reagan claimed "Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do".

More appointed officials were indicted and convicted of crimes under Reagan than than any other president.

Reagan was overrated, and raised taxes six times, even though Conservatives scream that taxes should never be raised.

Taxes went from 70% under Carter to 28% under Reagan.

I don't think any Republicans worship him like Jesus.


Reagan sent the deficit skyrocketing, growing faster in real dollars than under any other president.

Well, that is until Obama. Of course, Lincoln, Wilson, and FDR all expanded the debt much more, and they did it while creating awful programs. At least Reagan was restoring economic freedom and fighting communism.

And, Obama has expanded the debt far more in 3 years than Reagan did in 8.


Under Reagan the United States went from the number one creditor nation in the world to the number one debtor nation in the world.

Again, Reagan increased the debt far less than Obama, FDR, or Wilson (as a percentage of GDP), all progressive heroes.


Reagan cut social spending to the bone and created the homeless problem by turning hundreds of thousands of mentally ill people out on the streets.

Actually, poverty decreased under Reagan. And, cutting social programs is a good thing. These programs just take stolen money and subsidize irresponsible behavior. They actually make the poor worse off.


Reagan catastrophically lowered taxes in 1981, creating debt so bad he raised taxes each of the next six years and still didn't make up for it.

First, the main cause of the 1980s deficits was military spending, not tax cuts. Tax cuts helped the economy, which helped pay for themselves.

Furthermore, the tax cuts were not "catastrophic". In fact, they led to a long term increase in average income that American's are still benefiting from. In many Euroepan nations, where taxes remained high, the economy has stagnated over the past 30 years.

And, Reagan only cut loopholes, he did not raise tax rates.


Reagan cut school funding and tried to classify ketchup as a vegetable.

We spend to much on schools as it was.... Reagan was doing a good thing here to. And, I think the ketchup thing was more recent.


Reagan's streamlining of the income tax created the largest-ever shift of tax burden from the wealthy to the middle-class and working poor, resulting in expanding the income gap, which continues 30 years later.

Nope. The income tax got more, not less, progressive under Reagan.


Reagan showed no leadership and ignored AIDS — the biggest health crisis of the century — while tens-of-thousands of people died.

Why is is the President's job to fight AIDs?


Reagan traded arms, money, drugs and hostages between Iran and the Nicaraguan rebels.

At least he didn't steal more shiit from people, like Obama.


Reagan gave chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein.

Probably not the best idea.


Reagan claimed "Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do".

Can you prove the guy wrong?


More appointed officials were indicted and convicted of crimes under Reagan than than any other president.

In other words, Reagan caught more criminals in government than any other president. Good for him.

The "racist against blacks" ploy is old and worn out. There is no evidence in law, nor the courts nor the behavior of Republicans or Conservatives that even remotely suggests that we are even the tiniest bit racist.

As Ann Coulter said: Democrats are against racism in a time when no body is for it.
