I was living in England in 1980 and went to the US Embassy to cast my vote for Jimmy Carter.¹

¹ When the result of the election was announced I cried for days, weeks even; my friends were surprised that I had such a strong reaction, but I knew Reagan was going to destroy everything.

I could spend an entire day bashing Reagan.
Reagan is why Generation Jones needs to exist. Any benefits you think Boomers enjoyed, growing up, were destroyed by Reagan, in 1980-88.

I was 7 when Reagan was elected. I knew then he was bad news. the intervening years have only reinforced that view.

We were in California at the time and on the way to vote when Carter had conceded or it was called for Reagan and something was changed after that.

I remember how pissed off we both were when that happened.

Disparity gap is all I remember about that guy… oh wait… that subterranean hostage thing that kept those hostages captives for his own personal ambitions!

My mother was furious. She was very savvy about politics, and I had no idea. I do now. His presidency was a disaster for ordinary citizens.

In response to Jacqueline Wallace.
My grandmother is who I thank for my interest in politics. She detested Reagan, second only to Nixon.
