Ronald Reagan Quote

“The classical Liberal, during the Revolutionary time, was a man who wanted less power for the king and more power for the people. He wanted people to have more say in the running of their lives and he wanted protection for the God-given rights of the people. He did not believe those rights were dispensations granted by the king to the people, he believed that he was born with them. Well, that today is the Conservative.”

President Reagan's description of what was called liberal was correct. Today, I hear the conservative's weak voice clambering about right to life and arms. I hear very little concerning inalienable rights, individual sovereignty and liberty being done away with by compelled compliance, victimless crimes, government licenses, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, police State confiscations, etc.) and the ever expanding of centralized government maintaining a perfected allodium over all property and governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.
