The United States fortieth president that served in office for two consecutive years, Ronald Reagan had an overwhelmingly successful career in public office. Known for his erudite wisdom and impacting voice, Ronald earned millions of Americans’ loyalty, creating a more unified country, showing Americans a new way through his actions and character while in the political arena.

Graduating Eureka College in Eureka, Illinois in 1932 and moving to Hollywood, California in 1937, Ronald starred in his first film, Love is in the Air. Obtaining small roles in several major motion pictures, he quickly reached Hollywood stardom with his successful acting.

In 1942, Ronald received a military active duty call, and he abruptly stopped his acting career. As he earned his captain rank in 1943, he also served as Personnel Officer, Post Adjutant, and Executive Officer, gaining military officials’ respect all over the country. Eventually receiving the military’s Commander in Chief title, Ronald had served his country quite well.

After failing to earn the 1976 presidential campaign nomination, Ronald Reagan won California’s governor position from 1967 to 1975. Ronald’s experience in this position helped shape the policies he would pursue in his later presidential political career. By campaigning on a platform of sending “the welfare bums back to work”, he spoke out against a freeloader state.

Leaving government office in 1975, declining to run for a third term, he chose to follow his presidency dream.

Trying for presidency again in 1980, advocating the lower taxes Republican ideal, promoting less economic government regulation, his campaign ultimately won him the election, making a truly memorable presidential campaign.

As president, Ronald instituted and promoted Reaganomics, an economic program concerned with tax reduction and an unrestricted free market, resulting in a more stimulated market, generating greater revenue within the nation.

Ronald easily won his second term presidential election. His opponent, Walter Mondale, failed winning any states, except his Minnesota home state and the District of Columbia. All other states elected Reagan, who earned five hundred and twenty-five electoral votes, ranking the most in the nation’s history.

Creating tax reforms, ending the Cold War, revitalizing the GDP, strengthening the armed forces, Ronald Reagan made a lasting impact on the United States and stands as one of the most unifying and astounding presidents in history!
