Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan the Democrat


A recent post by a "regular" (using that word as a noun and not an adjective) on Swampbubbles about Ronald Reagan's rumored anti-gay rights stance prompted me to point out something that brain-washed liberals have as much trouble accepting as the fact that Obama is not entirely black.

In November of 1978, California had a ballot issue called "Proposition 6." This issue was sponsored by a conservative legislator named John Briggs (and thus it is sometimes referred to as the "Briggs Initiative"). The bill would have prevented gays from working--in any capacity--in California's public schools.

Anita Bryant campaigned in favor of the Proposition and Harvey Milk campaigned against it.

Just when it looked like Proposition 6 would easily win, Ronald Reagan--who at the time was a former governor of the state--wrote an editorial in the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner opposing the issue. It was a risky move for a man who was soon to run for president and needed conservative votes. Reagan wrote "Whatever else it is, homosexuality is not a contagious disease like the measles. Prevailing scientific opinion is that an individual's sexuality is determined at a very early age and that a child's teachers do not really influence this."

April 3, 2011

The nation recently celebrated the hundredth anniversary of Ronald Reagan's birth, but we should not forget that many of the serious problems facing America today began or worsened during Reagan's presidency.

Why not let Reagan, who died in 2004, rest in peace? Because a growing chorus of journalists, politicians, and pundits are using this milestone to rewrite history and bestow on Reagan a status as one of our greatest presidents.

That's hogwash.

Ronald Reagan: "Where Free Unions and Collective Bargaining are Forbidden, Freedom is Lost"

In a Labor Day address in 1980, Ronald Reagan said:

The country I want back

The country I want back
SOME of the people who have been appearing at town hall meetings lately say they want to take back their country. Me too.

However, I am left wondering what country they want to take back.
