I'm only 20 years old so no. But you don't need to have lived then to be able to do research on the subject. I know that's the theory of Reaganomics, and it has the potential to work in some cases. It didn't work fully however in the Reagan era. That does depend on your definition of "success", but there were some bad effects that led to the working and middle classes being squeezed. That's based on the information I've accessed. What I'm really happy about is that my meme got a debate going. Thanks for taking part.
I've just listened to his speech, and I honestly think he should have been more direct, but it feels more like a mistake to me. He did condemn bigotry and hatred in the speech on all sides- there were violent leftists there as well (although probably not as many). It sounds like Trump being Trump rather than something we need to be upset over. Please once again note I'm not actually a Trump fan. I just mock everything.
