My first 40 years
I turned 40 on Friday. During my 40 years, we have seen the greatness of Ronald Reagan, the fall of the Soviet Union, the end of the Cold War, the fall of the Berlin Wall. We have also survived Watergate, all of the Clinton scandals, and the worst President in history, Jimmy Carter. Although Barack Obama seems intent on giving Carter a serious challenger, we can certainly survive the already disastrous Obama presidency, right? It seems to me the things Obama/Pelosi/Reid are intent on passing will be hard to ever "undo". Much worse than any Carter era disasters. Who knows? I always thought the best cure for liberal ideology was liberalism, but this is more than an "innoculation". If my first 40 years gave us Reaganism as a cure for Carter, will we see a new American hero in my next 40 years? I hope to see him/her in the next FOUR years!
