Panda, they want to take Hamilton off the ten dollar bill and put Reagan on that. Hamilton was never a president, and that is their logic. I don't particularly agree with putting Reagan on the ten dollar bill, but hell, Jackson's on the twenty and he totally screwed our economy over by destroying the banks because of a little grudge.
Reagan's reelection slogans were, if I remember correctly, "Aren't you better off now than you were four years ago" and "It's morning again in America." Those eight years had their ups-and-downs, but things like that always happen. I think America prospered under Reagan, and I know people say that he didn't end the Cold War, but I believe it was his meetings with Gorbachev and his firm stance helped end it.
Yes, I have a Reagan reelection '84 and a 50th inauguration pins, and I understand that a lot of people didn't like Reagan because he was a conservative, but I think it's wrong for people to say things like "I'm glad that he's dead and rotting." That's just sick and rude, and a sad attempt to get on the news. I don't care how you feel about someone; show some respect to the dead.
I mean, I think that Jimmy Carter is history's monster, but I would never speak ill of him after he died. That's just wrong.
