Background: Ronald Reagan, a former movies actor, was elected President in 1980 on the Republican ticked. A conservative hardliner, he completed the move away from detente and began to put pressure on the Soviets. Famously he referred to the Soviet Union as an "Evil Empire", a theatrical phrase possibly not unrelated to his "Star Wars" project.
He was also against hippies and drug addicts.

Effect: 3 Ops Starred USA event. Add 1 VP, cancels or prevents Flower Power.

Strategy. Not very powerful in itself (3 OPs beats 1 VP most of the time), but can be powerful if Flower Power has been played. As USA it can also be useful if you have both it and Flower Power in your hand. Of course, it is better on turn 8 than on turn 10.
