Happy 100th Birthday, President Reagan!

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on February 6, 2011

Today is the 100th anniversary of President Ronald Wilson Reagan’s birth, and the authors of the Sarah Palin Information Blog join with millions of others in the celebration of  President Reagan’s 100th birthday.  We extend our sincere best wishes to former First Lady Nancy Reagan and to President Reagan’s children and grandchildren.  (A brief family history can be found here.)

In its summary of  The Reagan Era, Schmoop.com writes: 

Over the course of the twentieth century, only Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency (1933-45) equaled Reagan’s in social, ideological, and political impact. Even though Reagan’s presidency ended twenty years ago, it’s no exaggeration to say that the Reagan Era continues on to this very day.

We might note that conservative Americans support Reagan’s  limited government approach as opposed to the Big Government approach of Roosevelt.

In its Ronald W. Reagan entry, Our White House.org had this to say about President Reagan’s legacy:

Reagan worked with Congress to create legislation that stimulated economic growth, helped control inflation, added jobs, and strengthened national defense. Reagan’s economic policies centered on supporting business and cutting taxes. His philosophy, which suggested that prosperity would “trickle down” to all levels of society, came to be known as “Reaganomics.” By the end of his presidency, the U.S. was enjoying its longest period of peacetime prosperity without recession or depression

[…]

Reagan maintained that peace could be attained through military strength. He increased defense spending considerably and attempted to modernize national defense through the Strategic Defense Initiative, a complex, antimissile space shield to protect against nuclear attacks. Many referred to the SDI project as “Star Wars.”

During his second term, Reagan met with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Not only did Reagan manage to improve relations, he also negotiated a treaty to eliminate almost 2,700 intermediate-range nuclear missiles. Reducing the number of nuclear weapons was a first for any president and a significant achievement. Many also believe that Reagan’s diplomacy led to the end of the Cold War and helped trigger the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Young America’s Foundation kicked off a yearlong celebration of President Reagan’s legacy at its Reagan 100 Opening Banquet Friday night.  Governor Palin gave the keynote address at that event.  Former Vice President Dick Cheney gave the keynote address at the Reagan 100 Closing Banquet on Saturday night.

The Sarah Palin Information Blog and others in our blogging community launched a Proclamation on January 24 of a monthlong celebration of President Reagan’s legacy and Governor Palin’s accomplishments during the month of February.  You can help us celebrate by signing our Proclamation of February 2011 as Reagan/Palin Appreciation Month.

President Ronald Reagan’s legacy will also be celebrated at the Ronald Reagan Centennial Celebration at the 2011 Southern Republican Leaders Conference  in New Orleans from June 16-18.  Governor Palin gave one of the keynote addresses at last year’s SRLC.  For a list of this year’s speakers, go here.  You can register for the event here.

Over 13,000 people have signed the birthday card on the Happy 100th Birthday President Reagan webpage.  The site also features Reagan quotes, a Twitter feed of the #Reagan hashtag, and a videoclip by Michael Reagan, President Reagan’s son.  Please take the opportunity to add your signature to President Reagan’s birthday card today.  Donations to the RNC are optional and are not required to sign the card.

Throughout the month of February, SPIB and our co-sponsors of the February Proclamation, will continue to celebrate President Reagan’s legacy as well as Governor Palin’s accomplishments.  Her birthday is on February 11, which will be another day of celebration.  Please go here to join us in our remembrance of President Reagan and our support of Governor Palin.

Happy 100th birthday, President Reagan!  Thank you for your enduring faith in God and America and for all that you accomplished for our country and the world.  May your legacy continue as conservative Americans take up the patriotic banner you so proudly waved.  May God bless your family, and may God bless America!
