Old dog learns new trick. Insurgent Notes finally spells Macomb County, Michigan, properly.
IN comrades, Ronald Reagan in 1980 did not promise to "rebuild America" a la Donald Trump. He promised no government financed, or public-private partner financed, infrastructure programs; no rollback of capital flight;, none of that.
There were three main points to the Republican platform of 1980:
1) reduce taxes and private enterprise would enjoy a great leap forward; lower government spending, except on defense, and everybody would become an entrepreneur,
2) reverse an imaginary US decline in international status (by increasing military spending).
3) the core appeal to reaction, i.e. family values: "We will reemphasize those vital communities like the family, the neighborhood, the workplace, and others which are found at the center of society, between government and the individual. We will restore and strengthen their ability to solve problems in the places where people spend their daily lives and can turn to each other for support and help."
Good job on the spelling though. Keep at it.
