Throughout the history of our great United States of America we have seen many presidents some great and some insignificant, some impacting the nation in a positive way, others negatively, and some, seemly accomplishing very little in their four year term as president. Ronald Regan was a popular president, a former Hollywood actor he was reelected to a second term in 1985. President Regan was the oldest man elected president. He was the first President to appoint a woman to the Supreme Court, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Ronald Regan once said, ” What I’d really like to do is go down in history as the President who made Americans believe in themselves again.” I see President Ronald Regan as a great president. According to the constitution of the United States, it is required the president must preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
The President is duly responsible for the execution of laws; he has the ability to grant pardons and reprieves in criminal cases. As the Commander in Chief of the military, the president must also repel against foreign invasion. Former President Ronald Reagan was born in Tampico, Ill. , on a Monday February 6 th 1911 and is living today, in his homeland state of California. President Reagan was the first Hollywood actor to be elected President. He was a sports announcer for WOC, a radio station in Iowa when that job led him to acting he later served in the U.

S. Army. Being a Republican leader Ronald Reagan led a campaign aimed to restore “The great confident roar of American progress and growth and optimism.” Reagan focused his campaign on the poor economic policies of President Carter. And then President Cater called Reagan ‘trigger-happy’ and said he would lead the country to a war. Elected in 1981 as our 49 th President, he served a full two terms in the Presidency stepping down in 1989. On President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration day, Jan.
20, 1981, 52 American hostages who had been held by the revolutionary government of Iran for 444 days were released. Reagan’s inaugural address had a strong impact on our country with many promises to change the nation. The opening paragraph of the address are my favorite portions because he very graciously thanks the past president, while giving insight as to what is wrong with the economy as well as the nation with terrific solutions to these problems. Sadly, 69 days after Regan took office, an assassination attempt put the president in the hospital. After a quick recovery President Regan began to rally legist ration to stimulate the economic growth, curb inflation, increase employment and strengthen national defense. And change an economy that was suffering from very high inflation.
The president cut taxes and government expenditures. Regan ordered Naval escorts in the Persian Gulf War. Reagan’s main domestic policy was known as ‘Reaganomics.” This was a series of tax cuts and laws passed by legist ration that would boast the economy. He also created an innovative program known as the Regan Revolution, which he hoped would reinvigorate the American people. Allowing them, to once again “rely” on their government.
Reagan view on foreign policy was one of “Peace Through Strength.” During both of his terms he increased defense spending by 35% while improving relations with the Soviet Union. Regan declared war on terrorism, sending bombers to Libya after evidence came forward of an attack on American solders in West Berlin. Regan achieved much in the talks with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Geneva. Including a treaty Regan never actually led our country into war, but he did get us out of the cold war with military invasions as well as peace talks. The American political scandal of 1985 and 1986 was known as the “Iran-Contra Affair” because high-ranking members in Reagan’s administration arranged the secret sale of our arms to Iran in a violation of existing U. S.

laws. All profits ($30 million) were then provided to the Nicaraguan right wing “contra” guerillas to use against Sandinista government also violating U. S. laws. No evidence was even concluded that Reagan had broken the law, every person views Regan differently, some loved him, some hated him, and some love to hate our former president. President Regan was a good president in my mind; because he tried to do what he felt was best for our country.
He did raise the spirit of the country and began the truce in the cold war with the Soviet Union. Regan would handle today’s war on terrorism, just as he did in his Presidency – forcibly. As a popular president he would have the support of all Americans, much like the patriotism of today. I believe he would have captured and killed Osama Bin Laden and his people by this time because he is one of the few American Presidents who took serious action.
