Trump An Incarnation Of Reagan?

It sure now "feels" like 1981, when Reagan came in and drastically turned things around after the doldrums of the previous failed President.

Reagan was a Washington outsider, and so is Trump. Reagan came in to fight & win the Cold War, and Trump comes in to fight the extremism threat to the USA and the entire world. Both are for SMALL GOVERNMENT.

Interesting and informative article: 15 Things Trump and Reagan Have in Common

Any comparison of Trump to Reagan is insulting the dead.

You are most likely in the minority with such an extreme belief.

The 15 commonalities did not convince you?

BTW: I was inspired mainly by numan's "incarnation" thread to do this one.

Reagan was a screw up that made an honest effort. Trump is a Russian puppet. Not the same at all.
Thanks from numan

And YOU know this because of your high level contacts but are unwilling to share it to clear up the issues your man crush has?

Or are you just ignoring all the "Fake News" coming out of....well....pretty much everywhere.

Dude...don't be an idiot. Until an investigation is allowed we will not know, and it is apparent you have no idea how blackmail works.

Here is a little primer for 'ya:

You threaten to do something to someone.
That someone can either do what you want or you do said thing to them.
The things being done are not important to the acts.

I guess you missed it where almost every intelligence agency (including the FBI) has implied or is investigating this an many other "issues". Sad thing is Trump and congress are blocking actual investigation....I wonder why?

Okay...let me attempt a small measure of education as it is very clear small doses are in order.

You see, there are many aspects to an investigation. Some involve information gathering, others forensics, still others testimony and audio/Video capture. These are done before an investigation is officially called for under law at which point officials become involved and said data viewed and judged for validity and usefulness in prosecution.

I'm actually beginning to believe you are not actually just playing a partisan fool.

Time for the bottom line.

The bottom line, is that there is NO "smoking gun", and likely never will be. Until there actually is, nobody is, or even looks guilty of anything.

Interesting, as I find it likely you felt there was a gigantic smoking hole when HillBill was being investigated non stop for Benghazi and emails yet have no problem or worries about a foreign government interfering in American elections.

Very Sad.

Another similarity of Reagan and Trump:

Reagan ballooned the public debt and funnelled a pig's trough of moolah to the war profiteers of the Military-Industrial Conspiracy, and so will Trump.
