President Ronald Reagan [ Wikipedia ] is perhaps one of the better know republican president along with Abraham Lincoln. I am not an American but given a choice, I did vote for Republican and No! I am not white.

There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.
Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.
How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
