Soon to be unveiled in Budapest, Hungary’s Freedom Square, this new statue of Ronald Reagan will celebrate his contributions to the end of Soviet dominance in the former Eastern bloc nation as part of worldwide centennial celebrations of the Gipper’s birth.

To all those who wish to diminish Reagan’s contribution to the collapse of Soviet communism and say that it was really Gorbachev who made the whole thing happen, I have a question:  In a nation directly impacted by policies on both sides, why is it that they chose a Reagan statue rather than one of Gorbachev to place in Freedom Square?  Just a thought.
