National Review;2/18/1983, Vol. 35 Issue 3, p206
The article reflects on political and social issues in the U.S. as of February 1983. It argues against the notion that the popularity of President Ronald Reagan is declining based on public opinion polls. It criticizes the story that was published in "Time" that the tax cuts implemented by the Reagan administration have greatly contributed to the budget deficit incurred by the government. It comments on the misinterpretation made by the opponents of capital punishment on the statement issued by Pope John Paul II on capital punishment.
