This is a draft and I will probably rewrite it a few times.
ReaganRepublican started as a page in my first personal website ages ago… on Angelfire. Remember that? Then I bought the URL around 2000. I have owned this URL for over 20 years. I was a Republican since I could crawl. I loved Ronald Reagan when I was a kid. (We can talk more about that later.)
When I became an adult, I gave up childish things.
When I left the party, I pulled this site. But, I think there might still be a use for it. I used to be more center-right. I’m more center-center now. If I were still a Republican, I would be considered an Eisenhower Republican. (Here’s a link to the Republican Party platform of 1956. I would be happy with a modernized version of most of it.) Maybe I’ll write about that later.
This site is from my point of view and is dedicated to the old school Republicans of my youth — before the Moral Majority & Falwell; before the tea parties; before the 3 time cheater who drives his businesses into the ground. This site is not so much a fan site for Ronald Reagan. Rather, there will be some nostalgia for my childhood back in the 80s as well as how I’d like to repair the world going forward. Perhaps we can refocus and rebuild the shining city on a hill for ALL Americans.
“The crisis we are facing today does not require of us the kind of sacrifice that … so many thousands of others were called upon to make. It does require, however, our best effort and our willingness to believe in ourselves and to believe in our capacity to perform great deeds, to believe that together with God’s help we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us. And after all, why shouldn’t we believe that? We are Americans.” – Ronald ReaganRonald Reagan’s 1981 Inaugural Address
