Ronald Reagan was the greatest leader of the free world in the 20th Century. Franklin Delano Roosevelt left Europe half enslaved. Churchill left Britain in economic decline.

New Hampshire’s Senate has passed a measure to make the Presidential Range truly “presidential.” With a vote of 18-5, the Senate voted to change the name of Mount Clay, commemorating Henry Clay who never served as president, to honor former President Ronald Reagan. Reagan will now stand in the clouds beside former presidents such as Washington, Jefferson and Eisenhower, all of which have their own mountain peaks.
