Thank You President Reagan ~ We Miss You!

"Terrorist attacks are not caused by the use of strength. They are invited by the perception of weakness."
-Ronald Reagan

Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they've ever made a difference in the world. Marines don't have that problem."- Reagan

"Recession is when your neighbor loses his job. Depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his."- Reagan

"Our enemies may be irrational, even outright insane, driven by nationalism, religion, ethnicity or ideology. They do not fear the United States for its diplomatic skills or the number of automobiles and software programs it produces. They respect only the firepower of our tanks, planes and helicopter gunships." -- Ronald Reagan

Wild Thing's comment.......

Today would have been President Reagan's birthday. He would be 96 years old today. Oh how I wish we had more leaders like Reagan, we need them now more then ever. President Reagan was and will be a legend in the hearts of we conservatives forever.

I couldn't agree more, he accomplished so much and did it all with a minority Congress, there aren't any like him around inside the party now and look at who the RNC is pushing, scary stuff. This one Reagan quote says so much.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in 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 and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

Is this the Generation?

Ronald Reagan was a leader. He communicated leadership, as a leader he communicated. He did not test the prevailng winds of public opinion. He made public opinion. He took Carters bullshit "national malaise" and turned it into American patriotism.

I think Reagan would be appalled at todays Republican Party. It is a rudderless dingy with no upcoming leader that I can see. Ronald Reagan would look at the GOP/RNC, and fix it.

Reagan was great with the short quote, like Will Rogers. In both cases their quotes said something valid and were not merely funny, but usually were an answer to a pertinent problem.

Jack that is one of my favorite quotes.

Chilling to think about isn't it Jack, that this might be the generation or close to it. PC has certainly taken a lot of our freedoms away.

Tom I agree I think Reagan would be appalled too.

Reagan was America. He stood for something great that we ALL should strive to achieve.
He was the first President I voted for and I have based my decisions on WWRRD? (What would Ronnie Reagan do?)
He meant so much to us. It's time we stopped and remembered how wonderful it was when the Hostages came home from Iran and how prosperous the '80s seemed to be. That was all Ronnie's doing. He made us proud to be Americans!
