If Ronald Reagan were alive today, what would he think of the current GOP? He would recognize the direction of the current GOP as one he had set in motion. However, I believe he would be appalled by the extremism that the current GOP has embraced and labelled it his legacy. Reagan was much more a moderate than an extreme right-wing fanatic. He was a union member, then a union president during his days in Hollywood. Reagan knew when to compromise and he was not afraid to raise taxes. He learned how to do that during his eight years as governor of California. Those on the far Right who claim Ronald Reagan as a patron saint do no know Ronald Reagan.
