We live in one of the most dangerous times in recent history. The Cuban Missile Crisis and again the late 80’s were perhaps equal. I hate to say it, but Reagan saved us, not by choice, but he could have probably remained obstinate and have done us in. He gave up and chose not to.
Here is how he saved us: he appointed Anthony Kennedy and Sandra Day O’Connor to the Supreme Court. The power of the GOP to roll back the New Deal, the Social Security Act, Roe V. Wade, separation of church and state, was compromised by his incompetence in this area. O’Connor ruled the court in her day, as a moderate and Anthony Kennedy did not toe the party line when she left.
Most members of the current GOP would never appoint a moderate to the Supreme Court. O’Connor is gone; Kennedy could go at any time; and Reagan is gone. President Perry or President Bachmann or President Cain would learn from Reagan’s mistake, and we will all be educated with a brand spanking new America, one that is every bit as good as it was 100 years ago. Get ready to welcome the good ole days back, Grandpa.

It has been going on forever and ever.
