Does any of this make sense in today's U.S.?

What a great debate that was...

It was in fact a debate. Where are Carter's comments?

If Reagan was debating now, he'd be way off camera somewhere in the lineup, over with Huntsman. I can't figure out why the Rep's keep invoking him, when he'd be more liberal than any of today's candidates.

Just some of RR's great Tea-Party inspiring legacy.

It's too bad the guy isn't remembered more for what he actually did than for his sound bites, which seem to be all today's Republicans remember.

It looks like a completely different republican party ,a party that if Ronnie were still around would hate to be associated with its members.I would suspect a bigger sweep of power by the corporate world into the political market very soon,then it will get very intersting very quick , a corporate lead party via campaign contributions which will subject every vote on the hill at their discrepancy of outcome.In the near future corporations will have power to vote on presidential elections just like your average joe,they will be valued as a major voter or something to that effect,thats when you really know were screwed to the tire.
