Ronald Reagan (R) & Tip O'Neil (D)
Farewell Address

Back in the 1980's Ronald Reagan, Republican, was president. The House of Representatives was controlled by the  Democrats and Tip O'Neil was Speaker of the House.  Every week, conservative Ronald Reagan and Liberal Tip O'Neil would have lunch together. These two men had vastly different opinions about government and economics. Yet, they worked together on many important issues and were able to pass many important laws needed by our country.

Today, that camaraderie between Republican and Democrat, conservative and liberal no longer seems to exist. There is so much hatred and vitriol between politicians, I am concerned that you may acquire a negative opinion about our country and its institutions.  It wasn't always that way and it does not have to be that way in the future. You can build an America that values all races, and is tolerant of the political opinions of others without hatred and vitriol.

Ronald Reagan was president for eight years. Your final assignment is to listen to his "Farewell Address," and write a couple of paragraphs expressing your opinions about what he had to say. You do not have to agree with President Reagan. He encouraged us to be tolerant of the opinions of other people. Reagan was a humble man. He had a plaque on his desk that said, "it is amazing what you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit."  Because of you, my Bonita students, I am optimistic that America's best days are ahead of us.

Congratulations! You have finished your Economics Class ------ You have been a great group of students to work with and I will miss you. ....... Check out our YouTube Channel, "bvhigh." .. Lots of Bonita stuff to entertain you.
