“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t
need it and hell where they already have it.” – President Ronald
Reagan

Bloomberg Insider has released one of the most asinine
magazine covers and cover stories I’ve ever seen. Their cover calls President Ronald Reagan a “socialist,” agreeing with President
Obama’s assessment that President Reagan was a “wild-eyed
socialist, tax-hiking, class warrior.” (Here’s my
article refuting those remarks
)

Bloomberg is equally desperate
for readers as they are for facts.

Only one president in the last 100 years who is arguable more
conservative than Ronald Reagan is Calvin Coolidge–who cut taxes
from more than 70 percent to 25 percent and slashed government
spending.

Still, questioning President Reagan’s conservative credentials
is almost comedic.

The Left and the media demonized President Reagan as “radical”
and “dangerous” while he was in office. Now, in this article,
President Reagan is a “reluctant warrior” with “willingness to
compromise”–implying that President Reagan would not fit in today’s
Conservative Movement.

The Bloomberg article implies that President Reagan was
a tax-hiker and believed in wealth redistribution.

Does this guy sound like a socialist to you?

  • In President Ronald Reagan’s inaugural address he said: “All of
    us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The
    solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out
    to pay a higher price.”
  • On August 13, 1981, President Reagan signed the biggest
    tax cut in American history
    -a 25 percent cut for all
    Americans.
  • By the end of his presidency, the top income tax rate
    fell from 70 percent to 28 percent
    .
  • In the same speech President Obama and Bloomberg
    referenced, President Reagan said: “Lower, flatter tax rates will
    give Americans more confidence in the future…It’ll mean if you work
    overtime or get a raise or a promotion or if you have a small
    business and are able to turn a profit, more of that extra income
    will end up where it belongs — in your wallets, not in Uncle Sam’s
    pockets.”


President Reagan cut domestic spending, cut taxes, and
destroyed communism (socialism’s older
brother).
 Calling President Reagan a socialist is
like calling Donald Trump “humble” or calling President Obama a
“fiscal conservative”–it’s just not true.
