So 24 years ago, I was the youngest member of a delegation to the GOP Convention that selected Ronald Reagan as its candidate. I had gone to the convention a Bush supporter. I left a Reagan supporter. Within 5 years, I was a supporter of neither.

But it’s great to feel a revival of Reagan support. Check out this straight-talking Ron Reagan on Crooks and Liars. Bravo, Ron.

    I may not agree with Ron’s “he must be lying” rhetoric, I do find him a refreshing figure that states his mind. His opinions don’t look like knee-jerk reactions. I wish he were on the Republican side, to tell the truth. Especially since Cheney (my favorite no-frills politician) doesn’t go over as well on the Democrats as Ron does on the Republicans.

    As a conservative college student, I’m curious what precisely caused your political shift. I cannot agree with Ron Reagan’s reasoning or conclusion, but I applaud him for having the courage of his convictions and his contribution to the free marketplace of ideas. The American political landscape would benefit from having a more reasoned, substantive discourse over the issues – we have far too much political mudslinging and far too little political thought. Thanks for taking the high road in your work and blog and may the best man win the White House tomorrow night.
