Ronald Reagan had significant accomplishments. He ended the Cold War without bloodshed, Pressured Gorbachev into tearing down the Berlin Wall, Signed tax reform that eliminated many shelters and loopholes, And negotiated nuclear weapons cuts with the Soviet Union.
Liberals who hate Reagan are just partisan hacks. They ignore Reagan’s accomplishments and hate him because of his ideology. If Jimmy Carter had ended the Cold War and torn down the Berlin Wall, Ending a 40-year standoff, Liberals would call him one of the greatest presidents. But Reagan was a Republican, So naturally he can do no good as far as West Coast liberals are concerned.
He was an amazing man. Despite the Iran-contra affair, He executed the presidency with the utmost respect and dignity that I have ever seen. He was charismatic and a great leader in a time of economic despair. His response to the Challenger Space Shuttle is one of the most inspirational speeches of all time and he could not have been a better president. My favorite POTUS ever!
Helped end the Cold War, Lead us out of one of the worst economic crisis ever, Freed the hostages in Iran, And inspired new hope into American institutions. Like Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan was there when America and its people were in a period of great difficulty. Ronnie you are greatly missed RIP.
He was able to fix the economy, Create twenty million new jobs, Lower inflation rates, Exempt low income Americans, Create economic stability for small businesses, Lower taxes, And bring in an end to the Cold War with his concise and effective foreign policy skills. He also was able to survive a gun shot and return to his duty only three weeks later. A real true American who believed in this country and a real true father to Conservatism! Even the democrats loved him. Truly knew how special and unique in human history our country is. Brought the Cold War to an end. "Peace through strength. " Known as, "The Great Communicator. " Jimmy Carter was unable to free the American hostages for 444 days. Literally the moment Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president the Iranians released the hostages. Yes, That is the respect, He received, And fear from our enemies. I could write many stories like this, The man was a true patriot. Go on YouTube and just listen to his speeches, How he would get emotional about our troops and our nation. A special, Special person.
Ronald Reagan was the last DO SOMETHING president since Donald Trump. Reagan made us feel proud to be Americans, (unlike Obama). Reagan ended the Cold War an achievement no other president could do! He healed America after Carter's 4 years of pretty much fail. In a way President Trump is our new Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was one of the greatest speakers in American history. We should all be proud Americans! I know I am!
Ronald Reagen is the third greatest republican President behind only Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. In modern times, The division of the United States is large but a good leader in the oval office could change that. Obama was not able to do that because of racial problems and Trump thrives on hatred and division. If you take a look at the map of Ronald Reagans second term, America is dominated by Republicans. It was not about which party won the election, It was about which President won. That is the point of the Presidential election being different from the House of Representatives and the Senate. I am not saying that nothing bad happened while he was in office. The white supremacy over black people was still there and the American government still punished the Native people. No government is perfect, But since Reagan no administration has been able to do what he did. While currently, Because of a mix of Obama and Trumps financial plans, The economy is doing well, The Reagen administration is leaps and bounds ahead of any other President. Most famous and respected Presidents had to fight in wars and Reagen was no exception. Reagen won the longstanding cold war with the Soviet Union.
If you have not visited President Reagan's Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, You definitely should. Being able to fully learn about the history of what exactly he did is truly empowering, And you feel an incredible sense of patriotism and faith when you are there. Even though President Reagan was before my time, It is still clear that he is the greatest President ever when you are able to fully view all of the unbiased facts about what he actually did for this great country.
Reagan oversaw tremendous economic growth, The creation of 16 million jobs, And was a major figure during the collapse of the Soviets, Among other accomplishments. But most importantly, He restored faith in not only the Republican Party, But in America, By being a true patriot who believed in his country
He ended the Cold War by peace threw strength, Ended the Soviet Union and tore down the Berlin Wall. His economic policies were great by tax cuts to cutting regulations. He also put the American worker first. He is only behind George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Great overall American President.
Ended the cold war. Had an 8 year economic boom. Never got into war. Held christian family values. Was a great communicator. Just a great man in general. He was the man who really lived the american dream to it's fullest potentially and he loved the nation so so much.
He bogged the US down in many proxy wars (Nicaragua, El Salvador, Afghanistan). Reagan provided large amounts of support to Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban. Not to mention the Iran-Contra Scandal where arms were traded for US hostages and weapons and support were given to right-wing death squads in Nicaragua (Contras). At the best he was ignorant this was being done in his administration. He also turned the US from a creditor to a debtor nation and exploded the national debt due the massive increases in military spending
Reagan support for brutal military dictators cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of Latin American lives. He supported totalitarian regimes instead of semi liberal governments that made lives decent in the developing world. Reagan only created corporate loops holes and ended up raises taxes on the middle and lower classes, and tripled the national deficit. He escalated the War on Drugs and is now responsible for the most racists domestic policy in American History since jim crow. He vetoed the embargo against south Africa despite the apahrtide. He was able to create a persona of charisma and patriotism but was a terribel president when the facts are examined
Best president? When I saw this poll I nearly laughed. How could you say that halfwit was anything other than the dumbest modern president till George W. Bush? He destroyed corporate regulations, smashed labor unions, and did all he could to annihilate welfare. After that idiot and Bush no.1, thank God for Bill Clinton.
Ronald Reagan was a terrible president, and surely not the best one of the 20th century. That's like asking if a McDonald's hamburger is the greatest cuisine in New York City. Ronald Reagan sent the United States in a financially unstable direction and is directly responsible for the income equality we see today.
There are many of Reagan's policies, that today are negatively impacting society. He was not the greatest president because many elders do not speak highly of him. Additionally, there are a lot of jokes and humor that have risen in light of Reagan's policies. I think Bill Clinton has been the greatest president thus far as he attempted to tackle large issues such as welfare reform and health care reform. Reagan's policies did not address a lot of the issues that America is dealing with now today.
