Ronald Reagan

It's always nice to hear a little Reagan rhetoric. He's a classic!

Ronald Reagan -- What a Guy
Memorable quotes from President Ronald Reagan.

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

"I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandment's would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress."

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

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

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

"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."

"Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book."

"No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.

- Ronald Reagan

Very interesting. I had forgotten some of those and some I had never heard, I guess.

Good old Regan, may he rest in peace, and may his words inspire a new generation to continue in his wake and not collapse into complacent, feeble, quaking mediocrity.
