    Are these sentences possible?

    Hi! I would like to know whether the following sentences are possible or not.
    -They think we are a little too revolutionary.
    -We are a little too reactionary.
    -We weren't revolutionary enough.
    -We were reactioanry enough.
    -His works aren't original enough.
    -We are way too revolutionary.
    -Those politicians are way too reactionary.
    -Old people can be as revolutionary as young people.
    -Sometimes,young people are as reactionary as old people.
    - I read Dante's main works; I found them original, but not as original as Shakespeare's.
    -In my opinion, American girls are as beautiful as English girls.

    I also have a doubt on this structure: as adjective a/ an noun as
    - X is as revolutionary a politician as Y.
    -X is as reactionary a politician as Y.
    -X is as original a work as Y.
    -X is as beautiful a girl as Y.

    Please confirm that you know that "revolutionary" and "reactionary" are not synonyms.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Yes, I know that they are NOT the same thing. Those examples are not related.
