Was Ronald Reagan a Marxist?

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Republicans are freaking out because the Obama campaign is using the word 'forward' in its ads, and apparently the far right Republicans controlling the GOP are convinced that only marxists use the word "forward."

You know who else used the word "forward" in a presidential campaign ad? Ronald Reagan. Full text of the famous Reagan ad:

"It's morning again in America. Today more men and women will go to work than ever before in our country's history. With interest rates at about half the record highs of 1980, nearly 2,000 families today will buy new homes, more than at any time in the past four years. This afternoon 6,500 young men and women will be married, and with inflation at less than half of what it was just four years ago, they can look forward with confidence to the future. It's morning again in America, and under the leadership of President Reagan, our country is prouder and stronger and better. Why would we ever want to return to where we were less than four short years ago?
Try morning in Moscow.
