The political landscape of today will never produce a person like Ronald Reagan as President. His unique character, sense of humor, decency, and honor set him apart from all others. A man who put his country first and his party second. He brought a dignity back into the White House just a few years after the horror of Watergate. His faith was strong but he never demanded others believe the way he did.
Ronald Reagan was never for sale to special interests, non-profits, and the billionaire backers who have turned our modern political system into nothing but an endless field of prostitutes who will betray their own conscience for money and position.
The same individuals who are making it impossible for a normal Politician to emerge as a leader on the national stage are the ones who were most against Ronald Reagan’s policy with the Soviet Union. They were against negotiations to limit our nuclear arsenal or to try and tone down the Cold War. Many were arrayed against him in his world view but they were on the wrong side of history. Reagan and his anti communist belief took the steps that would eventually lead to the end of the Soviet Union. He was a man for the times and a true original and great American. He saw America as a shiny city on a hill and though many were arrayed against his trek to the top of that hill he plodded along. Eventually we all followed and discovered the fruition of his vision.
Since then we have succumbed to presidential candidates that were bought and sold by special interests. Whether democrat or republican they all were and are bought and paid for by the monied elite. Big oil and old money gave us two Bush ‘s and Big labor and new money gave us Clinton and Obama. After a quarter century of this presidential sell out we desperately need but will never see another Ronald Reagan. The past quarter century has given us empty suits in the White house spewing flowery rhetoric and empty promises. Reagan gave us true vision, real policy and a path to liberty.
