    Reagan was not a cultural shift, rather a return of anti-Whig neoconfederate structures, a return of Dred Scott governance by the Court. Buckley ended the republic and the function of Congress as a democratic institution. The work of John Quincy Adams and his successor Charles Sumner, with Lincoln, is too far over the heads of Americans, such that it could be said that this the same nation. As prof. Bruce Ackerman has shown, its not possible to preserve the Constitution, only, at best its values as a sort of historical preservation.
