Ronald Reagan was a classic example of a "puppet", an actor who played his role according to his script, even after he began suffering Alzheimers during 1984. His years as President was marked by complete control over foreign and domestic policies by a "shadow cabinet", unelected, which expanded pre-existing fascist militias across Latin America and Europe, and the expansion of prisons, and the drug war, against captive nations ("minorities") in the USA. Ronald Regan's status as a puppet continues, even beyond death, representing whatever the oligarchy wants him to represent to the "conservatives" of the USA.

The irony is that the legacy of Reagan is "to the Right" of some of Pres. Reagan's official policy stances.
