Ronald Reagan: The worst President in United States history

October 6, 2008 by  

Ronald Reagan worst U.S. president

You’re aware that this is all Ronald Reagan’s fault? It’s as simple as that. The ball that is now rolling over world economies was given it’s first push by the 40th President of the U.S. And because of that, it’s very safe to make this claim: Ronald Reagan was the worst President in U.S. history.

While conservatives like Newt Gingrich and John McCain worship Reagan far more than they worship Jesus Christ, the fact is that everything bad happening to the U.S. – both domestic and foreign – can be traced back to Reagan. And conservatives who invoke Reagan’s name as if he was some type of savior are clearly worshipping a false prophet.

  • Reaganomics: How much more evidence do we need to see that Reagan’s “trickle-down economic” plan was not just inept, but outright treasonous. Massive corporations have run wild, leading to a massive savings & loan disaster, Enron collapsing and the current complete breakdown of the U.S. financial system, among other things. Reagan worshipped an ideologue – Milton Friedman – and the two of them have been elevated to God-like status by many. But the U.S. economy is now a false front for criminal enterprises that have dried up the nation’s assets. That’s Reagan’s work.
  • Starve the beast: It was Reagan who started the “starve the beast” plan that encouraged lawmakers to run up monumental debt so that entitlement programs could be killed off and we could all lie in a free market free-for-all. With the U.S. now so ridiculously in debt, the government is about ready to be drowned in a bathtub. As are millions of taxpayers.
  • The original Neo-Con: The neo-conservative movement was born under Reagan. The Constitution ceased to matter as Reagan declared the first “War on Terror.” Because if you attacjk Grenada with the largest military known to man, you might be a neo-con.

Add to that the criminal Iran-Contra affair, his war on unions (thus leading to decades of stagnant earnings for American workers), his hatred of AIDS victims, and his creation of a U.S. police state and the picture gets very, very clear. The United States is far less respected, much meaner, poorer and more at risk because of Ronald Reagan.

Sure, it’s easy to say that George W. Bush has been the worst President in U.S. history. But all he’s done is follow Reagan’s game plan. Bush’s legacy will read that – like John McCain – he was a Reagan Revolutionary. Because Reagan started it all. And all you have to do is open a newspaper to see what Reagan wrought. Ronald Reagan was the worst President in U.S. history, and today we are living his legacy.

    Blasphemy, blasphemy, blasphemy! Jesus Jumping Christ at tall the blasphemy!

    I’m sue many conservatives would much rather see Jesus blasphemed than Reagan. Reagan’s a fictional character now, however. And a gay fictional character, as you’re aware.

    lol. I forgot about Gay Reagan.

    Thank you for bringing attention to the fact that Ronald Reagan is responsible for the mess we are now in economically. Not only did RR set the stage for economic catastrophe he is also responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of people in Central America.

    Can you believe there are some folks who want to honor this senile fool with a face on our currency?!!!

    reagan was the best president

    Great blog–Regan was absolutely one of the worst presidents–along with Hoover, Harding, Coolidge-and now Bush and almost forgot Esienhower–all Republicans—”Trickle down economics—and they laugh all the way to their banks!!! Both sides have their weakness though—But this deregulation crap started with “The Great Rhonald Regan”–ha! ha!—He(Regan) created minimum wage jobs-minimum wage jobs are not jobs-but slavery–maybe if your living at home with “mommie” minimum wage jobs are ok–but give people a break–”Were the land of the work you to death” anyway This world needs alot of help!!!

    But while you blame Reagan for everything, our dearest statesman and former one term President (and one-time CIA Director), George H. W. Bush laughs from the shadows.

    Reagan was just a puppet. Especially after the attempt on his life. If you want to know the real architects of our nations problems, look to the Bush Family for the answers. Besides, Reagan is long dead and gone. Who is still here causing increasingly greater disasters and chaos in the US and around the world? Who are the people in the shadows?

    George H. W. Bush is perhaps the greatest criminal of our time to never stand trial for even one of the numerous crimes he has committed against the people. We throw people in prison for the US for the pettiest of petty crimes. Where do we throw our biggest criminals of the biggest crimes? Into the White House!

    [...] This is why we must fight paying taxes. We have seen the hollow look in our grandparents’ eyes. The 1,000-mile stare of one whose life has been taxed out of them. We know the pain, and we must stand firm and pronounce “never again.” We are true American Patriots because of their struggle. And we will keep our money. That is what this nation was founded on. We will fight to keep the principles of Ronald Reagan intact. [...]

    hey ideot who wrote this, John Mccain is not a conservative!!!!!

    I remember back when Reagan was first elected. I was working as a union cab driver and as you know there are not many of those left any one day I filling my car with gas at the companies pump when another driver that was doing the same started talking about the then president of the United States. He said that Reagan’s plan was to turn the US into a third world country. At the time I was naive I never thought we would sink as low as we have.

    As the rich have gotten richer as they always do in a capitalist system because wealth flows upward, money is in the hands of the few and those that were the driving force of this economic system the middle class and the poor barely have enough to pay the rent and eat.

    This is why while businesses and corporations are sitting on billions they will not create jobs because one it is cheaper to use overseas workers and two there is no demand because those that use to buy the things corporations want to sell are broke.

    Things will however get a little better but since demand is flat another recession is probable because republican policies contract the economy instead of growing it.
