It simply cannot be resisted. The jokes and jokes of Republican politician Ronald Reagan and the fortieth president of the United States since 1981 are so captivating that one can harden one’s fingers to recall some of them.
You can not resist, so go ahead!
Reagan’s comment on his laziness: “Hard work has never killed anyone before, but I wonder why fate triggers it?”
Autograph post link to a photo of him posing with a chimpanzee in a movie studio while he was still an actor: “I’m just watching.”
Addressing participants in the peace demonstration: “They use their slogans to promote love and reject war, but it seems they can’t.”
To the grown man who shouted “We are the future”: “Go sell my bonds.”
Message to his wife after she was shot in an assassination attempt: “Honey, I forgot to cheat.”
Before taking him to the operating room to the doctors after the same incident: “I hope you are all Republicans.”
When asked what to do with the unsold butter mountain: “478 million pounds of butter? Does anyone know where to get 478 million pounds of roasted corn? ”
Democratic nominee Jimmy Carter’s presidency, “Economic collapse occurs when your neighbor loses his job. Depression occurs when you lose your job alone. Recovery comes when Jimmy Carter is unemployed.”
The last quote not only evokes joy – it also suggests the ruling philosophy and way of man who drove Carter out of the White House at that time. By the age of 40, Ronald Reagan was leaning towards Democrats, but understood that “the enemy is not big business, but big government and the state apparatus.”
As an actor, Reagan was a representative of the Cowboys, and he seemed to be transferring some of it to the presidency. As the Golds were so low he entered the saloon of the enemy city, where he restored order, fitted a sheriff’s star to his dress, and set his own rules.
In Reagan’s view, the adversaries took the form of a broader state administration, bureaucracy, and unjustly large expenditure, taxes and regulations. According to him, hostility also had a proportionate number of government-owned companies that functioned best in private hands. He decided to turn all this around.
He was inspired by the British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who did practically the same thing in the islands. As one aptly noted, the difference between the two is that when Thatcher read and influenced the works of Friedman, Hayek or Popper, Reagan knew the views of these conservative thinkers through flat “teachings” from Reader’s Digest.
This comparison should not be particularly bad. Reagan is intelligent and confident enough to admit himself and the world that he is not an intellectual. Although he was a former actor, he did not try to play this fake role.
Make no mistake: Reagan did not even defend himself by the “common sense of the common people,” that is, a kind of contempt for the elite and the experts; This stupid and dangerous card was taken by one of his followers, whose work we remember in vivid memory.
The president’s opinion, as Reagan understood it, was like a beacon: the first man who wanted to stand firm in times of uncertainty, to show direction even in impossible fog, and to give courage and hope to others beyond turbulent waters. The president, who ruled from January 1981 to January 1989, successfully accomplished this task, and on top of that, added a special charm that was unbearably easy.
Yes, Reagan was able to win people over with his smile, which was a huge boost to presidential marketing. At the same time, however, he realized that he needed a team of excellent experts to carry out his vision of independence, and that the functions of the American spirit were fixed only by the most essential obstacles that stood alone – in which he firmly believed.
“Surround yourself with the best people you can find, hand over the responsibilities – don’t go out of your way,” Ronald Reagan once wisely adhered to this reputation.
He did not acquire the land in good condition. The national debt was hit by a trillion dollars, eight million people were unemployed and the average household tax was 67 percent. Reagan excelled at gradually reducing the tax burden: with the strong support of the Appointed Laws, it was reduced to 25 per cent, so it was the lowest since 1941.
In addition to personal income taxes, capital gains, taxes on real estate or gifts also fell, and with a more generous regulatory plan, it provided a powerful impetus for business growth. Interest rates were also down, with inflation falling to 12.5 to 4.4 percent and creating 18 million new jobs.
Economic growth, which began during the Reagan era, spread to the 1990s during his reign. There seems to be no continuous economic expansion in American history.
But there are also irregular tones in the celebratory oatmeal. In the current system of society, it seems pure barbarism for Reagan and all the president’s men, figuratively speaking, to step into the economy in a frenzy without seeing numerous emissions. For them, nature was a source of wealth, a rag to squeeze, ecology a left-wing and despicable adventure.
Reckless robbery does not happen today, but Reagan is not in office today. However, the president’s economic policy, defined as recurrence, has already provoked a different kind of conflict. These conflicts are still unresolved and cannot be fully resolved because the world is not black and white.
“It is based on the four simple pillars of lower tax rates, lower regulation, limited government spending and inflationary monetary policy. It did not achieve all its goals, but its success was clear,” said Milton Friedman, one of the most respected economists in history. That is, the Reagan man who read the Reader’s Digest would not have missed the glory of his own footsteps.
Reconstruction put an end to the stagnation, significantly strengthened GDP and boosted trade. However, behind the bright positive light, there is the shadow of criticism, which speaks of more and more apparent gaps between wealth and poverty, deliberately revealing an atmosphere of greed. After all, it is undeniable: in the eight years of Reagan’s rule, national debt has tripled.
If expressed in numbers, the federal debt appears to be a threat. From $ 732 billion, it rose to $ 2.1 trillion, from the world’s largest debtor to the United States to its largest debtor.
Reagan himself regretted that he was a repeater from the Prime Minister. The inconsistent fact occurred for a variety of reasons, sometimes as a result of erroneous conclusions, but also by a significant mitigating circumstance. This should be borne in mind not only by Americans but also by residents of Central and Eastern Europe, including the Czech Republic.
“If I have to choose between national security and scarcity, I will choose national security,” the president told his commanders. He talked about national security, but it is essentially equivalent to his security to the security of the world.
This guarantee of security led only to the dissolution of an empire that was at odds with independence: the Communist Soviet Union called Reagan a luxury because its diplomatic dishonesty was an evil empire and decided to send it to its native place. In hell.
The new arms races that Reagan deliberately incited are the way to send comrades to hell. Gold Conslinger was very limited in his career and very meager work.
The country she was responsible for, the so-called Star Wars program, was badly affected by the extra cost, but she was still able to do so. The dilapidated Soviet economy could no longer compete, and the Kremlin was technically backward in terms of technology. Until recently, the olive branch, as a symbol of peace, had to be almost despised by pious Moscow instruments.
Reagan was also fortunate, because on the Soviet side Mikhail Gorbachev was the leader of a new genre that, unlike the ideologically blind and Asian-cruel Jeroen, had more or less good will, and history compelled him to seek a solution. It inevitably defeated the constituency represented by Gorbachev; The winner of the so-called Cold War was Ronald Reagan. Cowboy is a man with a heart.
There were heroic moments in his campaign. It also had pathos in some places, however, historical events may not be so luxurious. “Mr. Gorbachev, if you are looking for peace and prosperity for the Soviet Union and Central Europe, come here. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Reagan said in front of the Berlin Wall in June 1987, whose words had a hypnotic effect.
More than actually hypnotic. and more. Reagan’s words turned into deeds. Two years later, the Berlin Wall collapsed, along with the entire Iron Curtain.
Chechnya can even bet on an organization today that, despite all the flies, has room for human ingenuity, talent and a keen spirit. Chekhov can bet on a system that will lead to the prosperity of its own abilities and, above all, the fulfillment of life. It is irrelevant and unreasonable in this context to forget that Reagan’s contribution to all of this is not small.
So let’s remember: exactly 110 years have passed since the birth of the cowboy who defeated the Reds yesterday. The last word of the previous sentence is, of course, not a word to insult Indians.
