"(President Ronald) Reagan took the deficit from 70 billion to 175 billion." This is more or less accurate. The federal deficit went from about $78.9 billion at the beginning of Reagan’s presidency to $152.6 billion at the end of it. At points between 1983 and 1986, the deficit was actually more than $175 billion.

14.5 million public employees back then. there are over 20.2 million today. which is over 14 percent of the workforce in the U.S. that is too many, and they have too much power over the government. the public employee unions run California. and it has led to this train wreck going on right now. i wish people had listened to the Gipper a little more back then.

at 7:50...Johnny: "how do you balance the budget?" ...Reagan: .."it's like protecting your virtue, you have to learn to say, No." We were there in 1975...arguing over liberal vs. conservative. I miss those days. Now, we're just trying to keep the Union together. We need to defeat ignorance. Liberal or Conservative, we need to defeat ignorance. We also need to defeat the left-wing of the Democrat Party. Period.

Reagan was *THE* best President in American history. He knew exactly what was wrong with the country, what was RIGHT with the country. He also knew that reliance on government was a MASSIVE mistake that should be avoided. The Government creates MORE problems. The more it gets involved in people's lives, the worse it gets. It's a shame Reagan couldn't have stayed President long after his term was up.

Wow... I am so amazed listening to this. I was only 2 years old when his last term ended and this interview was 11 years before I was born - but how refreshing and enlightening it is to hear someone speaking (at least what seems to be) honestly and not just hitting on talking points. Politics has fallen to such sullen depths over the course of my lifetime. I’ve never been a fan or an adversary of Ronald but just seeing this makes me hold him in a much higher esteem than I ever thought of him before.

Good god, if only politicians could embody this type of honesty and humility today... we’ve dropped so far off the map... what he said at around the 10:00 mark - and on for a bit - is so damn true and enlightening - this was so amazing to see after being used to what we see today. Even if you don’t agree, which is fine, at least it doesn’t appear he is double-speaking or trying to cover all bases to not insult a certain constituency.

I wish he was the same Reagan from 1945. Private individuals cannot run health insurance, for instance. You need a large structure. That will either be a corporation or the government. Assuming it's a democratic government, which of those do you trust?
gmodmagic پیش 6 روز
@Thoughtsurfer Zone Agreed, in the times we live in, that IS the governments job in some cases, not sure I agree with how much people tend to rely on the government though. Government agency's haven't performed anywhere near where they should to help people, that's true, but I'm also very conservative and I don't believe in more government to try and resolve that. I don't believe it would work anyway. Help needs to be on local levels, where it can be applied properly.
Thoughtsurfer Zone
Thoughtsurfer Zone پیش 6 روز
@gmodmagic A government agency's first responsibility is human need. A corporation's first responsibility is to profit. That motive works out sometimes, but not the commons.
gmodmagic پیش 6 روز
A corporation. Especially in the age of information we live in. If you're a company and you screw people over, you will be burned BADLY, word will spread faster than it ever could in all of HISTORY and people will drop you. If you broke laws in doing so then people will ask the government to step in and right the wrongs. If a government has control, it can do what it pleases more or less, they are funded by the people and people have no real say in it because paying tax is mandatory, meanwhile paying money to a company is not and money in most cases has a lot of power. The government is too big and too full of political elites with their own views on how things should be done, corporations however have to run a business that attracts and retains its customers. Both systems have flaws, but the government has proven to fail, time and time again.

One thing the former President Reagan was talking is very funny, but do make very much sense though. Sure young healthy and rich will be happier than old, unhealthy and poor though. America’s freedoms and equality of opportunities principles society, young or younger Americans need to be well educated, learn harder and work harder by their young health, energies and active brains, constant learning experiences to make them richer by entrepreneurship spirit, if America’s better policies by less regulations and taxes, all young and younger generations will be able getting richer quickly and retire earlier and enjoy life earlier, surely will be much happier and more hopeful for future as the facts. Not like old or older people, less or much less energies, most of them are less healthy, less opportunities to learn more and work harder, but to spend more and less funs, less happiness and more miserable mood and hopeless for sure. This is why young and younger generations need to cherish their advantage of young ages, cherish our country America’s greatness of the freedoms, entrepreneurship spirit and equality of opportunities society, since surely less countries in the world will be able to achieve equality of opportunities and freedoms as well as opportunities for entrepreneurship spirit and education opportunities in our country America’s principles for sure. The former President Reagan obviously understand young Americans’ advantages and older Americans’ disadvantages at the same time. Listen to older generations’ life experiences will avoid unnecessary mistakes and too late to regret to regret for sure. Listen to an older great President Reagan or President Bush, surely will never regret, but to learn more to understand more quickly to cherish what America’s greatness and kindness nature, whatever efforts by educations or hardworking, as long as tried hard will benefit self quickly, because this is America and America’s greatness of the freedoms, entrepreneurship spirit and equality of opportunities principles for Americans of all. RIP both President Reagan and President Bush 41.

Reagan's argument hinges on separating the government from the people. This is not the reality, which is why there is such a massive ideological divide right now. This government IS the people and by destroying the government's inability to spend money on social programs to better lives, said people are just suiciding themselves. So when you hear, "The government is the problem', really what he's saying is, "You are the problem."

On the other hand, he does make a point about Government Employees (then at 14 million, now well over 20 million.) With our total national population in mind, roughly one in fifteen people work for the government in some form or another. I believe that number is a bit high and unnecessary.

Reagan: “The answer to curing inflation is a balanced budget”. Hmm. He was a very likable guy and he related well to many people. And he inspired many with his leadership skills. But his understanding of the issues of the day were very unsophisticated and shallow. And this is Reagan of 1975 not 1985. I was a young adult back in the 80s, but even so I really don’t feel I know enough to opine on the effectiveness of his presidency. But I can say that his brand of aw shucks, anti-intellectualism that proved so politically popular is something we have been paying dearly for ever since.

Reagan apparently was using this slogan as early as 1975 as this clip shows. "Government is the problem." It was an effective but cheap shot. It's disingenuous for a career politician to pin the blame on government. Does an umpire say, "Baseball is the problem." Not at all, the problems are many. Not just obvious things like cheating and fighting or other unsportsmanlike conduct, but a million judgment calls have to made. In or out of the strike zone, was it a checked swing?, fair or foul, safe or out are the usual ones. One liners are good for jokes, but when made into slogans, we need to be careful. There is a strong potential toward propaganda. By appealing to simplicity or black and white thinking, the slogan creates a clear but not always truthful picture of the opponent. It's similar to the rhetorical device of a straw man. If in an argument, I make my opponent's viewpoint seem like something that is clearly objectionable and that it relatively easy to dismiss or destroy in words, I've created a "straw man." I'm saying Reagan is being disingenuous. I'm clearly accusing him of a card trick, of playing a rhetorical angle on something that he knows to be much more complicated and controversial. He is grossly oversimplifying the issue and by drawing an us vs them distinction appealing to baser instincts in the people. We all want to believe that we're on the side of good and our enemies are on the side of evil. That's his game. I say it's less than fair because he drew a government paycheck like every elected official. As the chief executive, he was fully one third of the federal government as set out in the Constitution. His role was not to be pitcher and throw fast balls, but more like an umpire. Now if I say that Reagan really didn't believe that government was the problem and only said it to be devious and win votes and get himself into government, then I'm playing a straw man, because no one approves of that. I know he in fact believed these things and thought they were good things. I'm saying it's often hypocritical for elected officials to do things that the citizen voter can do with impunity. The same rhetorical device is used today in an even more devious way. "Drain the swamp." Down with the "Deep State." These are straw men as arguments*, that is, every reasonable person is for getting rid of something like a swamp or an entrenched insidious disease. The difficult part is in deciding who belongs to these categories and if in fact those people are enemies of the state and the people. If they are enemies, then we need to ask why? And how did this happen? And finally, what gives me the right to call them enemies? Pretty soon you begin to see, that there's reasons for people's beliefs and actions. If we stop hating the person, and look at the belief, we're heading in the right direction. I know a little about Reagan and can say with some confidence that he got this belief from thinkers like Ayn Rand. It was controversial in his time. He is the first truly Neo-conservative president. Much of what he was promoting was nothing more than Jeffersonian anti-Federalism. But again, that's being disingenuous. We don't live in the 18th century. It's not as though we didn't fight a bloody Civil War over issues like state's rights and slavery that the Constitution left open. My spiel. Thanks for reading and thinking and not taking it down. We all need each other. Iron sharpens Iron. (*I'm not schooled in the art of debate. It could be something other than straw man but I'm pretty sure it's fallacious.)

At 4:45 regarding Special Interest Groups ( SIG’s) “ big powerful business interest or something, that are going to persuade you to do something; as a matter of fact, I don’t know anyone with less influence today in government than businesses. They’re just a convenient whipping group”. What Regan and Thatcher did, was implement economic neoliberalism at the expense of the working middle class. Those populist on the right and on the left ( Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street) have more in common than they’d like to believe.
