    Reagan didn't mark its end. The republican party died with he adoption of the Civil Rights Act and ascendance of Goldwater. That paved the way for Reagan.

    •  btw, Ronald Reagan is the second worst president (3+ / 0-)

      ever.

      he is responsible for creating the magical facade that conservaties bught into, instead of dealing with reality (jimmy carter tried but failed to convince americans to wake up and get with the program).

      Reagan is repnsible for making conservaties think that feeling better about one's self, rathere being better was a virtue.
