Mount Rushmore currently displays the mugs of four great American Presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt. I believe there is room (literally as well as historically) for two more.
Historians who know a thing-or-two tend to agree that there were three 20th Century US Presidents who truly changed the world. They are: Both Roosevelts, and Ronald Reagan. All three are now dead. One is already on Rushmore. Why not add the other two?
Adding Reagan might be politically difficult, but that difficulty would disappear if the Liberal Lion FDR was thrown into the mix. Add both FDR and RR on this South Dakota monument, I say. They both were great Presidents whose vision and actions have changed the world we live in. Add them both.
I dare a single Congress-critter to vote against such a plan. It would have complete bi-partisan support, I believe.
Ronald Reagan may have finally left us. But his smiling face does not have to fade away from our memories forever. It can be, for all time, etched into the stone of the America he loved so deeply, right next to his political antithesis (FDR).
I support this. Do you?
