the 'entire nation' does not all believe he is great. many believe the same way I do. most of them who saw the changes and later realized who was responsible.

The lib's began dividing this country when Bush 43 was elected. They were ticked off that a Republican was in office and fought him at every turn. Then when Obama was elected, he attempted to divide this country along racial lines and was pretty successful.

The election of Trump was the result of these divisive actions. The difference is that Bush and Republicans tried to go along to get along. Trump isn't afraid to throw the divisive rhetoric right back at them. The left isn't used to someone on the right standing up to them and see's that as the problem when it fact it is just the right saying they've had enough.

Reagan was lobbied heavily to strike it down and he did. Since then propaganda has seeped in to America society more and more every year.
The Fairness doctrine was an attempt to circumvent the free market and force radio and TV stations to air unpopular and non profitable programs in an attempt to shut down successful personalities like Rush Limbaugh. The left was not able to air anyone able to successfully state their view point. So when they couldn't make it work within the current framework, they look to legislation and the courts.

Arrogant/ignorant. Either one would be a good description.

Have you read the first amendment? Freedom of speech also applies to not being forced to promote speech you disagree with. Today's SCOTUS, where the majority have better reading comprehension and less activist tendencies, The fairness doctrine would go down in flames. Fortunately today, not even the majority of liberals in congress would try to foist that garbage on the populace, so we don't have to waste time taking it to court.

As for the "ninth commandment" I'm not sure what you think Reagan did or what it would have to do with governing.

look at all his executive orders and if they rescind a previous one, look that up too. it will make you sick.
I don't know of any Reagan EO's that would "make me sick". Since you are making the accusation, why don't you post a few Reagan EO's that you feel should make one "sick".

So I'm typical liberal fashion, you made a claim and can't back it up.

In other words you're just making crap up and are too dishonest to own up to it.

OBAMA, is the worst...……….


Failed as a true American! And worst as an activist.


Not that a few other DNC presidents failed in their time in office.
