Today is the birthday of former President Ronald Wilson Reagan, one of the most important leaders of the Republican Party in the last 50 years. Born on February 6, 1911 in Tampico, Illinois, Ronald Reagan grew up in the Midwest and was raised on simple, down-to-earth, common-sense values.
Reagan essentially transformed the United States with his simple values: his sincere belief in the value of America, the value of the American people, and the value of the vision of government that the Founding Fathers had established at the birth of the Republic.
Yet, when one brings up his presidency, Reagan remains controversial long after he has passed away. Conservatives still love him as an icon of the Conservative arm of the Republican Party. Many major Republicans simply tolerate his memory. Leftists and Liberals tend to hate him.
Despite the criticism and the personal attacks against him and the dissent over his policies, while president, Ronald Reagan kept a sincere faith in what an exceptional country America was and the uniqueness of the Constitution. He would be viewed as a heretic today and so politically un-correct that there would be no hope for any future in politics.
