The Great Communicator

Posted by foundersfreedom on December 25, 2008

“Government growing beyond our consent had become a lumbering giant, slamming shut the gates of opportunity, threatening to crush the very roots of our freedom. What brought America back? The American people brought us back — with quiet courage and common sense; with undying faith that in this nation under God the future will be ours, for the future belongs to the free.”

                                                                                                     Ronald Reagan
                                                  State of the Union Address, February 4, 1986

The Great Communicator

“The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing.”

                                                                                                           Ronald Reagan
                                                       Address to the nation, October 27, 1964

The Great Communicator

“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.”

                                                                                                           Ronald Reagan
                                                       Address to the nation, October 27, 1964

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children through the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

                                                                                                                Ronald Reagan
