  • Photo from the TelegraphLech Walesa, who has spoken at multiple Young America's Foundation events, unveiled a statue of President Ronald Reagan in Warsaw yesterday to honor President Reagan's contribution to ending Soviet oppression in Poland and the rest of the Eastern Bloc.

    • Standing next to Nobel Peace Prize winners Mikhail Gorbachev and Lech Walesa would only hhligight the fact that Ronald Reagan deserved one but was snubbed by leftist elites.It would be great conversation if he went though...."Let's see, I broke Poland free from Communism, Mikhail over there got his prize for surrendering to Reagan.....what did you do? Did you surrender to someone already?"
