American virtue, free speech and renewal

The wisdom of Reagan – learn it, love it and live it.

Posted by foundersfreedom on February 15, 2009

It’s hard to imagine an American would have a problem with any of these statements, but the mention of the Great Communicator, Ronald Reagan, sends many into demonic fits. The Left hated him because he was right and he was America (as many of us still see her). That’s why they hate us TODAY.  If you don’t think hate is the right word, go visit HuffPo or Kos or other lefty blog.   

Enjoy these from the last real US statesman, Ronald Reagan.

We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we may always be free.

The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or the next. It was the deep knowledge — and pray to God we have not lost it — that there is a profound moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest
…  

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.

We are especially not going to tolerate these attacks from outlaw states run by the strangest collection of misfits, Looney Tunes and squalid criminals since the advent of the Third Reich.

I hope that when you’re my age you’ll be able to say, as I have been able to say: we lived in freedom, we lived lives that were a statement, not an apology.

“Some may try to tell us that this is the end of an era. But what they
overlook is that in America, every day is a new beginning. For this is the land that has never become, but is always in the act of becoming.”  

“We need true tax reform that will at least make a start toward restoring for our children the American Dream that wealth is denied to no one, that each individual has the right to fly as his strength and ability will take him…. But we cannot have such reform while our tax policy is engineered by people who view the tax as a means of achieving changes in our social structure.”

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

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.

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

                                                                      — Ronald Wilson Reagan (1911-2004)

We miss you, Ronnie!
