Do you remember how many times Reagan ran for President and lost? I do. What that means is that a majority of Americans were wrong about the guy up until that point when they finally elected him.
He was a decent man and far from perfect. Finally, we saw fit to elect him in his 70's. I think most people would agree that he was a pretty good man and a decent leader.
I have a friend who was detailed to Reagan's personal security in California. He maintained that Reagan might have even been a better guy... than most people give him credit for.
Shit, I am going to have to stand my ground against the anti-Paul herd. Not that I am looking for a fight, some vitriolic comments, or a little isolation...but because I think he is a good guy, a straight shooter, and worthy of a little decency. I wonder... had the internet been around in Reagan's time, what kind of garbage I would have read about him. Ponderous.
I've made my Paul case many times. I don't apologize nor do I claim he is perfect. If any of you find the perfect human being, please let me know. I'll be glad to write about him.
