The Gipper

So some have thought it odd that I as a Republican blogger have not yet commented on the untimely death of President Reagan. Simply put, it's because my mother always told me that if you don't have anything nice to say, say nothing. But, hey, when did I ever listen to my mother. While the Gipper is credited with ending the Cold War and boosting the economy with "reaganomics", he single handedly skewed the Republican party away from small government longing for fiscal responsibility to a moral army of conservative Christians crusading for American souls. Yes.... That's where Bush gets it from. Anyway, I call myself a liberal republican and I'm engaged to a libertarian socialist, and yes, I'm aware of what an oxymoron all of it is. Every party has it's good (FDR & Nixon) and it's bad (LBJ & Bush(s). I guess that makes me an independent, but in PA you can't vote in the primaries if you're an independent. So, like all things political, the Republican philosophy is great in theory, and bad in practice... but I had to register as something.
