Ronald Reagan had served as the 40th President of the United States throughout the 1980’s, from 1981 to 1989. People have many views about Reagan, some good and some bad. Reagan had stimulated economic growth in the United States, strengthen the military, revitalizing the Republican Party, and had ended the Cold War. Many people claim him to be a hero, and possibly the greatest President we’ve ever had. However, some will argue that Reagan was not a good president. Some will claim Reagan bloated the national defense, cut down the social services, and made missiles-for-hostages deals. They will say this had led to a global embarrassment. President Reagan had died on June 5, 2004.
