Despite the great volume of scholarship written about the 40th president of the United States, few scholars have concentrated exclusively on the memorialization of RonaldReagan. Policy-focused studies have tended to evaluate RonaldReagan’s legacy as president ( Schaller 2011 ; Heclo 2008 ). Other scholars have measured the rhetoric about Reagan as a symbol of U.S. conservative ideology and policy by comparing it with the president’s actual record in politics and policy ( Longley et al. 2007 ). Closer to the topic, a number of studies of Reagan
The present strategic disarray of the western democracies is both a by-product of the West’s failure to grasp the moral-cultural dimension of the end-game of the Cold War and a reflection of the crisis of civilizational morale that has beset western Europe in recent decades. Thus it is important to revisit the distinctive character of the Revolution of 1989/1991 in central and eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. That dramatic transition in European politics was born from many factors, including the re-armament of the West under the leadership of U.S. President Ronald Reagan. But the political Revolution of 1989/1991 was also the result of a revolution of conscience in central and eastern Europe, in which the reclamation of national identity and culture eventually gave rise to “soft power” tools of resistance that the hard power typically deployed by communist regimes in the face of dissent could not match. Lithuania, which embodied the oft-ignored truth that a tenacious national culture can, over time, produce democratic political change, is thus in a position to remind the West that freedom is never free; that the dignity of the human person, human rights, and the rule of law must be affirmed culturally by a robust civil society if they are to be defended politically and militarily; and that moral relativism is an insecure foundation on which to build, sustain, or defend the institutions of democratic self-governance.

Home ownership was made possible by tax breaks, a variety of subsidies and cheap mortgages. By 1960, 62% of Americans owned a home, by comparison with 44% in 1940.

For these and other reasons, some scholars have suggested Trump might be better seen as what Skowronek calls a “disjunctive” president—a Chief Executive with little allegiance to the prevailing governing coalition, but a figure who tries, nevertheless, to hold it in place in the face of building political strains. Skowronek, supra note 51, at 39. But even this description, which holds that Trump is more like Jimmy Carter than RonaldReagan, fits the President inadequately

If President Trump succeeded in appointing Kennedy’s replacement, then there would be a solid five-Justice conservative majority on the Court, thus finally fulfilling the aim of conservatives going back to the presidency of RonaldReagan. Trump faced a Senate with a narrow Republican majority, but the upcoming mid-term elections of November 2018 could change that. So whereas he had delayed filling the Scalia vacancy for almost a year, McConnell now rushed through
