Ronald Reagan on Freedom

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.

Ronald Reagan (1911-2004)


Ronald Reagan on Lawbreakers

We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Ronald Reagan (1911 – 2004)


Ronald Reagan on the Real Crisis we face

The struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith.

RONALD REAGAN, speech for National Association of Evangelicals, March 8, 1983


Government does not produce revenue it consumes it

Quote of the Day   From Ronald Reagan

“The principles of wealth creation transcend time, people and place.

Governments which deliberately subvert them by denouncing God, smothering faith, destroying freedom, and confiscating wealth have impoverished their people.

Communism works only in heaven, where they don’t need it, and in hell, where they already got it.”


Remarks at the Conference of the National Federation of

Independent Business   June 22, 1983.


“Government does not produce revenue it consumes it“.

Address as Governor of California 1974


“Yes, the deficit doctors have their scalpels out all right, but they’re not poised over the budget.

That’s as fat as ever and getting fatter, What they are ready to operate on is your wallet”.

Remarks at a meeting of the National Association of Home Builders,

May 16, 1983



Ronald Reagan Moment

“All of these things-learning to control the government, limiting the amount of money it can take from us, protecting our country through a strong defense-all of these things revolve around one word, and that word is “freedom”.

Remarks at the annual convention of National Religious Broadcasters, February 4, 1985


“ How can we believe in the greatness of America? How can we not do what is right and needed to preserve this last hope of man on Earth? After all our struggles to restore America, to revive confidence in our country, hope for our future- after all our hard-won victories earned through the patience and courage of every citizen- we cannot, must not and will not turn back. We will finish our job. How could we do less? We’re Americans”.

State of the Union address, January 25, 1988


Americans make, Government takes

The Reagan Moment

“ They have kind of a layaway plan for your lives which never changes. It’s called, “ Americans make, government takes”.

Remarks at the National Conference of the National Federation of Independent Business, June 22, 1983


“As Dave Stockman pointed out the other day, we’re still subsidizing 95 million meals a day, providing $70 billion in healthcare to the elderly and poor, some 47 million people. Some 10 million or more are living in subsidized housing. And we’re still providing scholarships for a million and a half students. Only here in this city of OZ would a budget this big and this generous be characterized as a miserly attack on the poor”.

Remarks at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference Dinner February 26, 1982
