Nothing Left, to Say...

Where We Shed Light on the Right, We respect governance by the 2C's, Common Sense and the Constitution, where we never have anything say...We are also the home of the (almost) weekly Rant and Recipe...

You know, I've been searching for something poignant to say about the passing of a giant. As you all know, I'm not usually at a loss for words. Well today I am. I was so choked up yesterday, watching the services for President Reagan and I'll be the first to admit that I cried. What the hell, I'm secure enough in my manhood, my conservative credentials are unimpeachable and like Rush Limbaugh said, I feel like a part of me died with him.

For those of you who don't know, Rush Limbaugh had an opening hour monologue yesterday which was a tribute to Ronald Reagan. I am including a link ">here so that you can all read it and learn a little about the legacy of a man who will rank among the very top tier of presidents. Whether you like Rush or not, the man is eloquent and his tribute is moving.

I have so many memories of this legend, I remember most how everyone warned that the election of Ronald Reagan would lead to war and that we would all be annihilated in a nuclear holocaust. The typical leftist bugaboo. Well this one time they were half right. It did lead to war. The Cold War was pursued with renewed vigor and eventually it led to the defeat of communism. Perhaps that was President Reagan's greatest sin in the eyes of the left, he exposed once and for all their hypocrisy, duplicity and most of all, the utter failure of communism/socialism. For that alone, America owes this man a debt of gratitude it can never repay.

Reader Jim Hank Duncan put it well here:They don't make 'em like that anymore. You ignored the press, the intellectuals, and the naysayers in Congress, stuck to your principles and did what you thought was right. As a result, you left the world a safer and a freer place, and America much stronger and more prosperous. Goodbye, Ron, and thank you.
