Ronald Regan:  staunch defender of America, defeater of Communism … great romantic? Definitely! Ronald Reagan would turn 104 on February 6, 2015. Americans remember Reagan fondly, and it’s easy to see why. His presidency, from 1980-1988, marked a period of low taxes and healthy economic growth for America. He was my favorite president of my […]
