You And I Have A Rendezvous With Destiny- PLEASE WATCH.

Turn this on during a quiet moment and listen to the words.   Listen carefully.   Remember what the world felt like then.   Many of us may not have agreed with the politics or the policies, but The President and most importantly our country was treated with the utmost respect.   I suggest the reasons for that respect are clearly articulated in this moving speech.

    Nostalgia is a nice, warm and fuzzy memory viewed with sadness and longing. President Reagan was a professional actor who played the part of president well. Reagan was also personally appealing and had a knack for politics. Reagan could deliver a line well; Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall! But Reagan’s policies were not so good. Deficits grew under Reagan and became a way of life for America, one that may lead to our eventual demise. https://www.slate.com/id/2101829/ The deficit, which stood at $74 billion in Carter’s final year, ballooned to $155 billion in Reagan’s final year. In the words of Vice President Dick Cheney, “Reagan taught us deficits don’t matter.” Really? Reagan is remembered so nostalgically.

    Nostalgia allows us to gloss over many past injustices, like Reagan’s Iran”“Contra affair. Or President Johnson’s phony Gulf of Tonkin pretext that brought the War on Vietnam. Result: 58,159 dead, 1,719 MIA, 303,635 wounded American forces, and about 1.5 million dead Vietnamese people. Or the conduct of the House UnAmerican Activities Committee (1938-1975) which used its subpena power to intimidate citizens by asking them unconstitutional questions about their political beliefs and associations, and then charging them with contempt of Congress for refusing to answer.

    Cold reality is the antidote to nostalgia.
