True. In 1990 the economic boom of the Ronald Reagan presidency was still gaining momentum. The tech industry was just beginning to boom then. Atlanta was a world leader in tech, home to pioneers Hayes and Scientific Atlanta. And across the country, that boom would continue to resound until Bill Clinton's presidency and his threat to sic his anti-trust government goons on Microsoft.

But booms require boomers and we're too few these days to counter the Dems' sloth-appeal. Because booms are about work and struggle, honor and competition. No Dem ever campaigned for that!
