Since this is the subject of an on-going "dialogue" this morning, I thought it appropriate to post.
Listening to Reagan in his prime reminded me of how the man was vilified as an empty suit. To the left he was a hack, has been, B-movie actor. The left said that he was a shill for the right. That's the kind of Alinsky propaganda that the left employs to discredit the well reasoned arguments of conservatism. It's funny that recently, even the left have begun to admit that Reagan was much more than they gave him credit for. Here's his warning on the slippery slope of socialised medicine. It's somewhat lengthy for today's attention spans, but please listen to the end.
