Ronald Reagan...The greatest President of the 20th century.
I remember casting my first presidential vote ever for Ronald Reagan. He was a never ending fountain of optimism for the American people.
Many of you who were not alive during this time can't appreciate what he did for this country. After four years of Jimmy Carter, this country had an unemployment rate twice what it is today. Millions were out of work. The economy was in kaos, interest rates were ridiculous. I think my first car loan had a interest rate of 20%!
The pride in the military was at an all time low.
Ronald Reagan was able through the force of his convictions and eternal optimism to bring the country back.
Ronald Reagan hastened the fall of communism in the world.
Ronald Reagan returned pride to America and the American military.
Ronald Reagan showed that the american people could succeed and thrive when goverment is removed from their backs.
Ronald Reagan was a gentle man with an ability to rally people towards goals from both sides of the aisle. He was a man of his convictions with a deep love, faith, and belief in the American people.
I will never forget what he did for this country.
