" Today marks 25 years since Ronald Reagan unseated Jimmy Carter in a landslide election victory. It's hard to think of any leader in the postwar era who made a greater mark on history."
"It was a time of 21% interest rates and the long-forgotten "misery index": inflation plus unemployment."
"His tax cuts sparked a 92-month, noninflationary boom that generated 17 million new jobs. When Reagan came into office, the top tax rate was 70%; since he left, it has remained below 40%."
"He stood before the Berlin Wall and demanded that it be torn down, and in less than 2 1/2 years it was gone."
"The Reagan Revolution taught us many lessons, but the most pertinent today may be this: Sometimes freedom depends on one man who knows what's right, and is willing to suffer ridicule for doing what's right."
RIP President Reagan
