Reagan? You Gotta Be Kidding!

It's common knowledge that Barack Obama wants to be a "transformational" President: A historic world changing figure who not only changes the trajectory of the country, but of the World. It's been said that Barry much admires Ronald Reagan. Not his policies of course, but the way he shifted gears and lead American in a totally different direction. And who knows, with the help of the Democratic establishment, the media etc. hell he may just do it. One thing that can be said about Obama, the man does not lack confidence or decisiveness. But it's the confidence of the high school kid who has been steeped in the "positive self-esteem" of modern "education" but can't conjugate a verb or read above a sixth grade level. The confidence of someone who has never been burned, never suffered the consequences of foolish errors. It's the confidence of never having performed without a net.

Today we got the fourth quarter GDP numbers and lo and behold the economy shrunk (after growing 3% in the third quarter just before the election don't you know). That's right friends SHRUNK. Now don't panic, you won't be hearing the "R" word anytime soon. The media will ignore this as much as they can and when they can't, spin it with every pie chart in their graphics department.

Here's the difference between Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. Reagan believed in freedom. Reagan set the economy on a sustainable course of prosperity that lasted nearly 30 long years. Reagan's policies helped the American people create wealth on a scale unknown in world history, and with that wealth we brought down one of the most heinous, evil regimes in world history. And we did it without firing a shot.  Reagan's policies were just and right and good, and if we followed the Reagan model we (and the world to a lesser degree) would still be enjoying peace, prosperity and freedom. Barack Obama believes in equality, evidently by whatever means necessary. And his record speaks for itself.

"Nature smiles at the union of freedom and equality in our utopias.
For freedom and equality are sworn and everlasting enemies, and
when one prevails the other dies. To check the growth of inequality, liberty must be sacrificed,
as in Russia after 1917. Even when repressed, inequality grows; only
the man who is below the average in economic ability desires equality."
Will Durant
