What he said is so true even today!



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

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

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

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

"I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked
like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress."
- Ronald Reagan

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

Ronald Reagan

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

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

"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."
- Ronald Reagan

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

If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops
moving, subsidize it."

you disgrace yourself you can always write a book."
- Ronald Reagan

the will and moral courage of free men and women.
- Ronald Reagan

He's one for quotes i'll give him that. I liked that one he said about outlawing russia at the height of the cold war, very much an icebreaker.

Had to look that word up . . . geez man how obscure can ya get lol.


Yeah, have to say the former POTUS was a good man. Can you see how far have we come from that time period to now? How could American values change so much?

I blame it on the type of people that think the person shooting at me should be able to do so without me shooting back. . . .

right... we had a shootout with police in my hometown- 3609 rounds expended, one actually hit the dude. I don't feel safe with that kind of accuracy. Then they hit him in the shoulder.

Hmm seems not everyone liked him:

I believe that Ronald Reagan can make this country what it once was - an Arctic region covered with ice.

Actually thats not entirely true. Reagan was the more popular President To Leave Office. His actual popularity in Office was about 52% which isnt bad, but not great. As an outgoing President he is surpassed by both Clinton and FDR. 66% (each, a tie) to 63%.

FAIR did a good piece about this, all stats and figures are included.

I'll say one last thing about Reagan. Reagans popularity is not aging well. Its beginning to wane due to the fact that his strongest base, (which in 1989 were the age 45+) is now beginning to pass away. Reagan's conservatism struck a cord with older Americans but he wasnt very popular with the youth (I was growing up that time, we all hated him). The best way I can explain it is to say that he was totally disconnected with the youth of the 1980's, his handling of the war on Drugs and of the AIDS crisis were proof of that. He would be in the camp of people condemning the ills MTV when thats all people my age were watching. Like I said, totally disconnected.

In additional, the disasterous result of alot of his policies came to light after he left office. His record breaking deficiets, his Tax Cuts to Millionaires, his relationship with South America Death Squads, friendship with people like Saddam Hussein, his greater-than-he-admitted to role in the Iran-Contra affair, etc...
