What has the power to take a life has the power to preserve it, what has the power to love has the power to hate, what has the power to make the world a better place has the power to ruin it. The monumental power of choice resides in all of us and dictates the course of history.

Roland Reagan came into the office during his first term hoping to use his administration to fight communism and end the Cold War. He finds out it was not easy as he thought. So, in his second term he turned to a different strategy getting to know someone like Gorbachev. The conservatives thought he was making a mistake. Roland Reagan’s success finally proved to the conservatives that his friendship with Gorbachev was not a dupe.

Serving as the 40th president of the United States from 1981 until 1989, Ronald Reagan’s religiously toned rhetoric and foreign policy initiatives can be seen as a key example of how religion can impact global affairs.

The American people claim Ronald Reagan to be one of the most influential and greatest president, and icon, of all time. He was the man to bring Conservatism officially into the Government.
