Remembering Reagan
Posted by Staff
Today marks the 103rd birthday of Ronald Reagan. As a society entrenched in a beltway-centered, 24/7 news cycle, it’s hard not to feel the palpable absence of a man like Ronald Reagan on the political stage today—a man who was able to defeat the establishment, and truly relate to the American people. While Reagan had the glamor of a handsome Hollywood actor, he had true substance to back up that image. And Reagan allowed that substance to guide his executive decisions (unlike our Commander-in-Chief today, whose presidency is wholly devoted to maintaining his unsubstantiated, razzle-dazzle "self-mirage"). People have had enough of the political corruption and political favoritism in Washington. As Reagan said in his inaugural address, “Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.” Now, more than ever, we need a leader more like Reagan-- someone who challenges the establishment, stands for the American people, and, in so doing, unites us all through the bright and beautiful optimism of true conservatism.
