    How far have we come in this country

    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Reagan’s endorsement of a balanced budget is funny in light of the deficits his administration ran up. Carter was more of a budget hawk than Reagan.

    Still, he was a great President.

    How quickly we learn to spin. Every budget Reagan proposed was "Dead On Arrival" according to Tip O'Neil. But you are correct, he was not a perfect president but he was a great president.

    Do you have a reason for saying that or are you just trying to show us once again, what a classless $#@! you are?

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.
