"The business of our Nation goes forward.These United States are confronted with an economic affliction of great proportions. We suffer from the longest and one of the worst sustained inflations in our national history. It distorts our economic decisions,penalizes thrift,and crushes the struggling young and the fixed income elderly alike. It threatens to shatter the lives of millions of our people."
"Ronald Reagan First Inaugural Address"
I lived through the early eighties. At the time I was in my early twenties, married, and my wife and I were-"The struggling young"-today's problems actually pale by comparison. These words were penned after the Democrats-under Jimmy Carter- Had attempted to spend their way to prosperity-and when that failed-attempted to tax their way to prosperity. Current events seem a lot like the movie"Groundhog Day". I've seen this, done this, and lived this ,once already. We need a solid conservative like Ronald Reagan. Simon and Garfunkle asked "Where have you gone Joe DiMaggioo". I ask where have you gone Ronald Reagan". It's time the party of Lincoln and Reagan reclaim it's conservative principles.
