Trump not worst President

Who was the worst president in my lifetime (since 1938)? Don’t jump to conclusions. Sure Trump is incredibly awful and he may even create a civil war to keep himself in office after loosing an election but the groundwork for this destruction of our democracy began nearly 40 years ago and blame can easily be placed on one head of state. This worst president started by politicizing global warming. He was a Republican and could have awakened the nation, and with it the world, to the seriousness of the problem. Instead he took down the solar collectors that his predecessor had installed on the White House.

Did you know that the top tax rate in 1944 was 94% for people earning over 2.5 million in today’s dollars and it stayed at 90% for the 50s and most of the 60s? Then rich people started using their money to bring it down succeeding in getting it down to 70% which held until the worst president in history, who committed impeachable offenses, Iran-Contra among others, brought in trickle down economics lowering the individual income tax rate for the wealthiest to 50%. That was in his first year. For an encore this actor/president lowered the rate to 28% at the beginning of his second term.

There you have it, folks, Ronald Reagan made the most dangerous environmental problem in the history of the earth political and put 1% of the population in charge of our future by giving them enough money to buy the government. He poured the concrete for the foundation Donald Trump is standing on.
