WWRD? WHAT WOULD REAGAN DO?

This is a repost from February 2006.



Whether you love him or not, I love Ronald Reagan (heck that’s why Jackson’s middle name is Reagan). Thanks Pam for sending me these great quotes in an e-mail. I thought I’d share them with the rest of you. The man had a way with words that I really enjoy, and that is hard to say in regard to politicians. His autobiography is a great read that I highly recommend it.




"Here's my strategy on the Cold War: We win, they lose."



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



"The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant: It's just that they know so much that isn't so."



"Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong."



"I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments 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."



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



"I've laid down the law, though, to everyone from now on about anything that happens: no matter what time it is, wake me, even if it's in the middle of a Cabinet meeting."



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



"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

ADDITION-ON ANOTHER NOTE, NO ONE CAN HONSTLY TELL ME THAT OBAMA AND REAGAN ARE ANYTHING ALIKE. THE COMPARISSON IS IGNORANT.

THIS MAN WAS AN EXAMPLE OF THE 3 C'S: CHRISTIAN, CAPITOLIST, CONSERVATIVE.

Reagan and Obama are both Christians.
