Not just empty rhetoric about "Change"...

It would be nice to have a President once again who is also a patriot. To our current government's ears, President Reagan would sound dangerously subversive...(thanks, Bruce, for forwarding these to our email!)

'Here's my strategy on the Cold war:
We win, they lose.'- Ronald Reagan

'The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'
-Ronald Reagan


'The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.
' Ronald Reagan


'Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.'
- Ronald Reagan


'I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.'
- Ronald Reagan


'The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination.'
- Ronald Reagan


'Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.'
- Ronald Reagan

'The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.
' Ronald Reagan


'It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.'
- Ronald Reagan


'Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it'
- Ronald Reagan


'Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.'
- Ronald Reagan


'No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.'
- Ronald Reagan



'If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.'
- Ronald Reagan

  1. Good quotes - I am a huge Reagan fan! I actually have a post sitting in my drafts folder from a few weeks ago - talking about Reagan's inauguration and saying that without God our nation WILL perish. If I can find it I will email to you.

  4. Ah, Reagan. A lost voice of sense in the world. I think my all-time favorite Reagan quote is, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"

    And it worked - the Wall came down.
