Ray Gun Republicans

Ray Gun Republicans Although they are largely posturing in this as in so much else, 21st century Republicans profess to be the heirs of Ronald Reagan. In their fables and folklore, the Reagan Years were halcyon times characterized by peace, prosperity, and joy. Like most recollections of times past these are inaccurate to the point of caricature.
