Bit of an aside, but I'd like to throw in a little bit of a reality check for Reagan conservatives (but not anyone on this thread in particular). You like to claim that you can't spend your way to prosperity and that racking up debt doesn't improve our economy, but under Ronald Reagan (who you claimed stopped a recession through conservative principles) the US added roughly ~1.8 trillion dollars in debt to an already 1 trillion dollar deficit. Keep in mind that this was back in the 1980s so if you adjust that for inflation it's quite a bit more than what it seems.
Next you like to talk about how the head of the unions are parasites that exploit the workers via union dues and then bargain pay-raises out of corporations with unscrupulous methods so that they can increase their own revenue and live a lavish lifestyle. I hate to break it to you, but before Ronald Reagan was President of the United States, he was President of the Screen Actors Guild. They are a union. Kind of paints his union-busting activities in an interesting, blatantly hypocritical light you might say.
Finally, you claim that by returning to conservative principles as communicated by Ronald Reagan our country will prosper. Problem with that is, George W. Bush was basically the second coming of Reagan in a much less charismatic shell. Bush campaigned on being a Reagan conservative and basically agreed with him on everything. Conservatives often like to point at his spending habits as a way of claiming that the two diverged, but both men increased the debt by the trillions (though Bush more than Reagan -- I think, I didn't adjust Reagan's debt for inflation). Try and name a few principles on which they differ; you're going to have a hard time.
So please, Republicans, if you're going to run for President on the basis of "no spending," integrity, or "returning to conservative values" don't call yourself a Reagan Conservative, don't say you're going back to the Gipper's Golden Age of America. Just come up with some straightforward ideas, tell us what you're going to do, and stop cloaking it in symbolism. It's time Conservatives stop relying on the goodwill that our nation felt for a dead guy 25 years ago.
Please, please, please come up with some new, good ideas instead. Give me a fresh face with logically sound ideas that can make a single speech without talking about abortion, gun control, gays, or god and I just might consider voting against Obama in 2012.
