Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Happy 100th Birthday to the Second Worst* President in US History!

Ronald Reagan's Legacy:

-Making bad movies.
-Betraying Democrats and switching to a Republican.
-Slashed taxes on the wealthiest which haven't been fully reinstated and have led to record deficits and debt.
-Appointed 3 of the 5 Supreme Court justices who unconstitutionally stopped the Florida recount which would have given Gore the 2000 election.
-Increased Cold War military spending which has resulted in higher national debt.
-Rushed the Challenger launch which probably resulted in its explosion.
-Taking credit for ending the Cold War when the credit should have gone to Gorbachev.
-Declaring war on the middle class and unions.
-Unjustly firing thousands of air traffic controllers.
-Ending free college education while governor of California.
-Making racism "ok" again after decades of civil rights battles by using the "Southern Strategy" to gain more political power.
-Ending Carter's dream of alternative energy by being a whore to the oil companies. This has resulted in a worsening of global warming.
-Laying a wreath on the grave of a Nazi.
-Standing in the way of early AIDS research which has led to thousands of unnecessary deaths.
-Giving weapons to Saddam Hussein to use against his own people.
-Ending the "Fairness Doctrine" which has allowed talentless hacks like Rush Limbaugh to get airtime.
-Declaring an endless "war on drugs" while at the same time using drug money to fund illegal wars in Central America which have resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths and appointment of brutal right-wing dictators.
-Making a secret deal to sell weapons to the Iranians and keep the hostages in Iran until inauguration day just to make Carter look bad. Reagan is a traitor, he should have been arrested.
-Inspiring an entire generation of idiot conservatives to embrace fascism and mediocrity.

Happy 100th birthday Ronald Reagan!

*First being George W Bush.
