    This is a link to the 1964 speech given by R.Regan on behalf of Barry Goldwater.

    Take a few minutes and listen to the words spoken then - of a growing National dept, out of control spending, of a war overseas (yes, Vietnam - now it is SWA) and on and on and you will realize something that might surprise many people.`

    Not a damn thing has changed 52 years. I think most would agree things have gotten decidedly much worse.

    So, while history doesn't really repeat itself (well, some parts do) it sure as hell echos.

    Go vote this next week. Get your friends up off their asses to vote. Because this time, really, really, things could get very much worse than they are now.

    I may make a comment after the dust settles. For the next bit, I'll be busy putting up the storm shutters.....

    Wow! this is a great video.[winkthumb][winkthumb][winkthumb][winkthumb][winkthumb]

    I forget how great a speaker Reagan was, he uses facts and humor to get his point across. An amazing speaker with great delivery skills.

    about 14:00 he talks about the double talking for left wingers...... somethings never change.

    Trump should buy the time and air this in Prime Time on every National Network.

    I agree completely, not a damn thing has change in 52 years..........

    'Trump should buy the time and air this in Prime Time on every National Network.'
    That, sir, is a great idea!

    Amazing how he machine gunned his speeches into their thick skulls. FACTS, FACTS, FACTS, and more FACTS! And, he offers them nothing...Notice how they speak now compared to then. And, we get free cell phones...but no country.

    That will not work. If you might recall, a Mr. Ross Perot once paid for his time in the limelight. The powers that be quickly decided they needed to make changes so that won't ever happen again. See the Commission for Presidential Debates, it's an entirely privately funded institution. Ever wonder "why" that third party candidate isn't permitted to attend the televised debates? Now you know the rest of the story.
