A Tribute to Ronald Reagan

He was a great American. He had a magnificent sense of American pride, and had an aura of optimism. Not only was Ronald Reagan a great president, but he was also a great american.

Ronald Reagan died today, one year ago. That is why I am writing this.

He brought back to the U.S. its pride. Something that had gone away during the Carter years.

He brought back a booming economy.

He brought down the Soviet Union.

He understood the problem with government, that it was to large.

He understood that the American people needed a real leader, and he gave them one.

He understood that the American people wanted his Four Pillars of Freedom: individual liberty, economic opportunity, global democracy and national pride, and he delivered.

When I hear his voice, or see his face, I am reminded that I live in the best nation on the planet. I am comforted that there are leaders like him, and that soon, we may have another one.

"Always remember that you are Americans, and it is your birthright to dream great dreams in this sweet and blessed land, truly the greatest, freest, strongest nation on earth.”

I'm happy to see that you don't think we have a great American leader right now. How soon we get one may depend on how soon tom DeLay gets relieved of his legal struggles.
I'm sick of people who say that Reagan brought down the commies. Does that mean that those of us who sreved in Europe during the "cold War" were just wasting our time?
How dare yo ignore the contributions of the Polish freedom movement that started the whole thing?
