Is Trump The New Reagan

"February 6th marks the would-be birthday of Ronald Reagan, the much-loved GOP icon who passed away in 2004. The charming, two-term Republican president from 1981-1989 defined the modern conservative movement and became the benign face of a harsh philosophy. For those of you who either don’t follow politics or weren’t born yet, Reagan’s star rose as drugs, crime, and mass unrest in the late 1960’s and 1970’s put liberal policies in a bad light. When Reagan beat President Jimmy Carter in 1980, our country was deeply shaken by the Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal, rising oil prices, out-of-control inflation, and the never-ending hostage crisis in Iran. Never mind that Richard Nixon, a GOP president, caused the Watergate scandal, and that right-wingers from both parties (back then, both parties had liberal and conservative wings) pushed for the war in Vietnam and for a foreign policy that angered people in the Middle East and all over the world. People were blaming liberals for our woes, and here’s this cheerful, grandfatherly guy telling us it’s “morning in America.” Yeah, Good f*cking morning.

Reagan crafted his political positions as the governor of California from 1967-1975. During his 1966 campaign, he promised to “send the welfare bums back to work” and “clean up the mess in Berkeley” (impose some law and order on those danged hippie protestors). A whopping 57.65% of voters sent him to the CA state capitol. “Clean up the mess” is what Reagan did on May 15th, 1969 — otherwise known as “Bloody Thursday” — when Reagan sent the CA Highway Patrol (CHP) and the National Guard to quell the People’s Park protests in Berkeley. One dead student and a blinded man later, Reagan snapped, “If it takes a bloodbath, let’s get it over with. No more appeasement.”

The abortion debate had also begun, and although the new CA-Gov. Reagan signed a pro-choice bill, he later came to regret this, and took a “pro-life” position. He also strongly favored the death penalty, but only got to perform one retroactive abortion due to a Supreme Court of CA decision that banned all death sentences. Reagan also famously joked about hoping for an epidemic of botulism when a left-wing group demanded free food for the poor (the group was called the Symbionese Liberation Army, and they later went on to kidnap Patty Hearst)."

Not necessarily the new Reagan, he's more the new Hitler.

Godwin's law be damned.  As disheartening as it is that he's able to get so much support in my country, he's not likely to dismantle the blue wall.  Trump virtually has no chance of swinging a purple state and I hope he get's the GOP nod.   Cheesy

He does seem to have a lot of the same ideas as Reagan, and Reagan helped to set this country on its downward tailspin. Is Trump the one to finally destroy it? Or maybe he will set the country even deeper into an endless war while demanding more tax breaks for the wealthy?

Good to see Trump scares the shit out of Liberals Like old Crapper and yourself. That means he's on the right path. It will be a glorious day when We finally find a cure for the mental illness known as Liberalism. With any hope it will also cure Old Crapper of his Lying Disease Too.

LOL, Trump is a loudmouth coward, so it is no wonder that you would support him.

Scare me? LOL, no more then punks like you do.

Did you ever find the proof that Obama let in more terrorists then your hearts desire Bush did?

Personally I hope Trump gets the Republican nomination, and I hope he wins. The sooner this crappity smacked up country is done away with, and we can rebuild on what the Founding Fathers wanted, the better off we will be. As it is we only have the mess pricks like you created.

Things aren't necessarily what they might seem. Just about any politician can put a nation on a downward path.

FC,

I've been thinking about how I can respond conversationally without coming across as a total dick.
