I'm not gonna say he was a puppet, he was a really strong president... But I cannot agree with his de-regulation of the banks, maybe in that way, he was a puppet of the banks. His de-regulations started us on the way to financial prosperity (for only the already wealthy) and then to the financial disparity (for those who weren't wealthy). Once when he opened the stock exchange, he was talking about Merril Lynch whose logo is a bull. He said "It is time to let the bull loose!" He was right, the bull was let loose and it bucked so much that it led us on the way to eventual financial ruin.

Only the liberals are rotten on the inside - the conservatives are fine.

Ronald Reagan was a fine actor.

Reagen saved America from government mismanagement of the economy in the 1970's.

Milton Friedman

"I am favor of cutting taxes under any circumstances and for any excuse, for any reason, whenever it's possible."

"The Great Depression, like most other periods of severe unemployment, was produced by government mismanagement rather than by any inherent instability of the private economy."

"Inflation is the one form of taxation that can be imposed without legislation."

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand."
