Skip to comments.Will we have another Reagan to get us out of this mess?-

This is merely me venting, but I would appreciate any support or feedback you can give. This relys heavily on my current knowledge of history, and as I am only 18 years old, I have much to learn.
My question is this: Supposing that Obama finishes this four-year term, and continues his disastrous policy, will we have another Reagan to fix this? We went through this kind of thing with Carter, but it was on a much smaller scale.
A man like Reagan doesn't come along that often, so despairingly I ask you, who can fix this? The current officials in the Republican Party are almost all corrupt, self-serving, power mongers. Someone please help me with this, as it is really gnawing at me.
We will have another that espouses the conservative values and love of America, that Reagan had.
Be of good cheer,my friend....help is on the way.
She’s gorgeous,smart,tough and good!
Having had Democrats running Congress since ‘06, and now 0bama in office, I think America is on the path of permanent decline. The electorate has proven itself too lazy and too stupid to remain free; people voted for the mommy state, and once it sets in you’re pretty much doomed as a people. It slowly enervates the population until the will to compete is gone. I’m convinced the future belongs to Asia.
The U.S. “media” will not allow another Reagan to arise. They will do everything in their power, including lying to the public, to attack, libel, and tear down anyone who presents a conservative opinion. Look at how they tore down and helped defeat Rick Santorum, George Allen, and Sarah Palin.
The United States as it was under Reagan will not exist again until the traitors to our nation in the newsrooms have been eliminated.
(metaphorically speaking, of course)
She isn’t Ronald Reagan, but she’s the closest thing I can see on the horizon. I lived through the Reagan years and can tell you he wasn’t perfect either. In fact, he made some serious errors. But he still accomplished more for the cause of liberty than any president in the last century, at least.
I too lived through the Reagan years,and,as you have noted,no,he wasn’t perfect,and no human being is,including Sarah,but she is exactly what we need...exactly.

By your question you show more promise than the typical 18 year old (apart, perhaps, from those who may be serving in the Middle East).
Your question is based on 1) the presumption we will enjoy free and open elections; and 2) that a future president can by his or her own efforts reverse the sharp leftward swerve our nation has taken and continues to take.
Well-informed national writers suggest 1) is in doubt. They point to:
the fact that Obama has been surrounded by anti-Americans his entire life and even presently;
Obamas longstanding involvement with ACORN and the status it currently enjoys with tax-payer monies;
Obamas expressed desire for a Civilian National Security Force as well-funded as the military;
Obamas support of the Iran governments position with regard to the protests of an amazingly quick count of votes; and,
Obamas support of Honduran leftist thug Zelayas clearly illegal attempt to circumvent the authority of his countrys election laws, its Congress and its Supreme Court.
(for more see, http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124744094880829815.html.)
just to name a few reasons.
One can wonder what La Vegas odds makers would say about Obamas likely future behavior.
As for 2), a Reagan-like president will require legislative support if he or she is to have measurable success. Dumbed-down voters seem bent on electing open socialists and RINOs masquerading as patriots to the Congress.
What do you suppose will effectively change the behavior of the voters?
I have bad news for you. Carter's meddling with the economy was nothing compared to what is going on now. The closest parallel I think would be Hoover-Roosevelt who both tried to stimulate the economy with an assortment of government interventions. (See Rothbard's History of Money and Banking. excerpt here) We didn't break out of it for nearly 20 years.
If that's the case, then we're screwed.
I lived through the Reagan years and can tell you he wasnt perfect either.
Golly, so did I. And Sarah Palin is at best knee-high to Ronald Reagan, both in terms of experience and intellectual depth. Not to mention that normal folks could stand to listen to Reagan.
obviously the MSM believes that Sarah is the next Gipper, otherwise they would not be working triple-overtime to try and destroy her. The good news is that running against the Media might be her most effective strategy.
Uh oh... incoming!!
I like Sarah because she's Sarah- and nobody else.
Bingo, and with fewer words.
Shaking in fright.... /s
LOL! I know what you mean...
What's your alternative? Roll over and give ObaMao a pass?
I've listened to her very deep insights on world finances and international relations. Oh ... you mean she doesn't have any of those? Ooops.
