Ronald Wilson Reagan was an American politician and actor who was the 40th President of the United States, from 1981 to 1989.
President Ronald Reagan helped redefine the purpose of government and pressured the Soviet Union to end the Cold War. He solidified the conservative agenda for decades after his presidency.
Reagan stepped into the national political spotlight in 1964, when he gave a well-received televised speech for Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater, a prominent conservative.
In his inaugural speech on January 20, 1981, Reagan rhetorically announced that “government is not the solution to our problems; government is the problem.” He called for an era of national renewal and hoped that America would again be “a beacon of hope for those who do not have freedom.”
On the domestic front, President Reagan advanced a number of conservative policies.
There’s a whole generation of younger Americans who never knew Ronald Reagan or got to hear his sage political views. They are as sound today as they were when he was leading our nation.
