Remember when we had a real president in the white house? Sure you do. Economic growth was at a high, he produced the longest period of economic growth since World War 2, and he took inflation down from double digits to one measly percent.
I know it’s easy to get depressed around the holidays when you think about how the Gipper is no longer with us, but fear not. You can tune in right here to Conservative Island, and we’ll be sure to keep the memory of Reagan alive and well.
This is a great speech from 1986, where Reagan actually predicts the Obama failure of trying to “spend ourselves rich”, which he warned would slow the economy and wreck the federal deficit. He continues to preach growth as the only way to bring real prosperity to America, while keeping deficit spending under control.
I sure wish we had him back at a time like this, and you can bet I’ll be tilting a glass to Ronald Reagan this Thanksgiving. Will you join me in remembering the greatest American president of the 20th century?
