    No, not evil. Dangerous and destructive, and lacking in empathy (which is why he can't see his political adversaries as people whose lives have meaning and value without him). He's an overgrown child who doesn't understand that the world isn't the way that he wants it to be, and never will be.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    I would submit that the extremely high levels of his Narcissism and gluttony for power make him truly evil.

    You do not know that the Reagan was a strong dimocrat at first right?

    I am as conservative as anyone here and I guarantee that there are very few of us that will see eye to eye on every single subject, I don't beleive that diminishes you as a conservative and more than it does me.
    I'm well acquainted with Reagan's past. You do know that Reagan changed affiliation because "the DIMoRAT party left him", right?

    This is a huge difference from Romney who waffles and flips from one progressive idea to another, changes his tune depending on venue, and smoothly talks his way out of these charges at the debates when challenged.
    Reagan didn't have to make excuses for his decisions or statements, he didn't have to think about his answers or have a deer-in-the-Headlights look on tough issues, as he spoke from core convictions. Reagan didn't wait to see poll results and check the political weather vane to test his ideas like Romney.

    Romney will get my vote if he is the last man standing, but I trust his Conservatism only so far.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Dependency Index Surges 23% Under President Obama

    The American public's dependence on the federal government shot up 23% in just two years under President Obama, with 67 million now relying on some federal program, according to a newly released study by the Heritage Foundation.

    The conservative think tank's annual Index of Dependence on Government tracks money spent on housing, health, welfare, education subsidies and other federal programs that were "traditionally provided to needy people by local organizations and families."

    The increase under Obama is the biggest two-year jump since Jimmy Carter was president, the data show. >>> The report also found that spending on "dependence programs" accounts for more than 70% of the federal budget. That, too, is up dramatically.

    ------------------------------------------

    Is anybody really surprised?
