  •  End of Reaganism? End of Calling Reaganism Rea- (6+ / 0-)

    ganism maybe.

    We will not restore compressive individual income taxation. We will not restore trade protection of our labor. We will not repeal Reagan's media consolidation and public service requirement rollbacks. We will not restore pre Reagan union rights.

    If Reagan transformed any element of the economy, you name it, we may tweak it but we will affirm it.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"

    •  I hope we can do more (9+ / 0-)

      I do agree that we can't go back to before Reaganism and that we cannot restore some of what we lost.

      I am hoping, however, that we will move in new, unknowable directions that can even improve on older progressive ways of doing things.  Sometimes we cannot even envision a solution until it arises and become obvious.
