Why do punk rockers hate Ronald Regan

Post by PunkRat13 »

Why do they?!

I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.

This should be obvious.
-He was anti-gay
-He came up with the idea of Trickle Down Economics
-He taxed the poor heavily
-He tried to paint the Sandinistas and other revolutionary socialists, anarchists and communists as fascists
-He was pro-religion
-He was anti-labour
What there isn't to hate?

Actually he wasn't the "anti-gay" icon that people like to make him out to be. In his home state of California where he was a governor he openly opposed a bill that was trying to pass that would forbid homosexuals from working in schools. He gets a lot of criticism for how he handled or rather didn't handle the AIDS epidemic but you have to realize that this was the 80s and the information we have now was not known then. I can't say that any other President would have handled it differently.

He was for states rights, less government control, lower taxes, and a strong national defense. During his presidency the Cold War ended and the Berlin Wall was torn down, which he did have a part in. I'm not his biggest fan but I cannot remotely agree with the statement "what there isn't to hate".

Politics SUCK. Deal with it. People are going to like what they will, and will not what they don't. Best to just shut up and deal with it.

Well, I'm neutral. I don't directly support anything. I hate and like things about everything. But I don't find this forum to be a appropriate place for political, or even religious discussion. Just mainly because I have views that some people could be intolerable to.

Agreed. I only give my input when I feel something is strongly misrepresented but then I leave it at that. I don't have the time to deal with debate and I'm also certain that most people would hate some of my views. :lol:
