I’m starting to call the years from 1981-2001 the Reagan interregnum - a brief pause in our slide to socialism.
You’re right. Although the 1990’s were Clinton years, we managed to stop a lot of his socialist ideas in their tracks. Remember Hillarycare? We stopped that dead! One bag thing that got past the radar was the Brady Bill but beyond that, we did a fairly good job holding the line. I think with the 9/11 attacks, we lost a lot of our freedoms too, in many ways, the terrorists have won. After that, you had Pelosi, Reid and OBummer come around and now we have Obummercare.
