      or just start reading random diaries at Kos.

      the topic of Reagan and his policies and their long term effect on this country is quite popular.

      basically, the entire playbook of Modern Movement Conservatism and supply side economics.
      cut taxes, cut spending on everything but Defense, start wars, wars and more wars, run up huge deficits, cut education, cut the safety net, weaken unions, tax breaks for offshoring jobs, deregulate the finance sector, weaken or remove oversight aka Free Markets!!!, generate fear and jealousy among the population, blame the poor and unemployed instead of helping them find work...

      there have been thousands of books written on this topic and umpteen articles and columns.

      no man is completely worthless, he can always be used as a bad example.
