I was told that Ronald Reagan would be the last President before Armageddon
well, he and madam thatcher tried their best to bring it on lol
Where I lived, in 1974 there were two main camps. Some, myself included, thought 1984 a more likely year (there were great animated discussions about how long it took Adam to get lonely - and we figured there was no way we could finish the preaching work, see all the churches toppled by Nixon, Breshnev & co, have a great tribulation etc.. all in under one year) gee, I was a dorky wanker.
Then there was the other camp who you couldn't talk to about any of that .. they had car loans and house mortgages depending on the armageddon cancellation policy comming soon, real soon! A lot of JWs even had houses picked out in the leafy rich suburbs.
