Ronald Wilson Reagan was the 40th President of the United States, the 33rd Governor of California and before all that, an actor. He was born in Tampico Illinois February 6, 1911 through June 5, 2004. Ronald was president 1981 through 1989.He ran as the thirty third governor of California (1967 to 1975) before he was the governor, he was the best actor around the world He played in lots of movie like Knute Rockne, All American and Kings Row and many more all together he was in about fifty movies that he played in.

When Reagan was going for president there was somebody else trying to beat him? That man is Jimmy Carter but for short Jim cart and he was the second best in the country never loosened his grip on being president but the people in the world wanted a new change and there was only one man for the job and his name is? The great Ronald Reagan he made gas prices go down like a rock flying out of a plane. He had a pretty wife and a great family that's why I think that Ronald is the greatest president in the world.

Reagan was born in Tampico in Whiteside County, Illinois, reared in Dixon in Lee County, Illinois, and educated at Eureka College in Eureka, Illinois, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics and sociology. Upon his graduation, Reagan first moved to Iowa to work as a radio broadcaster and then in 1937 to Los Angeles, California. He began a career as an actor, first in films and later television, appearing in over 50 movie productions and earning enough success to become a famous, publicly recognized figure. Some of his most notable roles are in Knute Rockne, All American and Kings Row. Reagan served as president of the Screen Actors Guild, and later spokesman for General Electric (GE); his start in politics occurred during his work for GE. Originally a member of the Democratic Party, he switched to the Republican Party in 1962. After delivering a rousing speech in support of Barry Goldwater's presidential candidacy in 1964, he was persuaded to seek the California governorship, winning two years later and again in 1970. He was defeated in his run for the Republican presidential nomination in 1968 as well as 1976, but won both the nomination and election, defeating incumbent Jimmy Carter in 1980.
