Ronald Reagan Quote

“Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people. We sometimes forget that great truth, and we never should. Happy Fourth of July.”

I think we need to get another Reagan in office, will someone PLEASE stand up?

Byron, Fort Collins

*Sniff* I didn't appreciate Reagan when he was in office. Kimo is right, we could certainly use another Reagan. I'd love to see either Herman Cain or Ron Paul get the GOP nomination.

I stand with those here above and Reagan's quote, very well said.

Wish we had another Ronald Reagan!

I'm with Byron on Cain or Paul getting the nomination, however, Reagan disappointed me, When he debated Jimmy Carter he promised that the first thing he would do in office would be to get rid of the Department of Education and one other alphabet department that escapes my memory. He did neither. Axing the Department of Education alone would have been a great thing to do. A few more such as HUD,EPA,DEA,DOE,OSHA,etc, need to go into the dust bin of history.

Jim K - Agree. We should be divesting ourselves of all the unlawful federal alphabet soup agencies. They have been robbing us of our time of life, committing legalized plunder on the fruits of our labor and stealing away our unalienable rights to freedom of choice and our constitutional protection to lawfully pursue our own happiness.

He reminded us and the world what the USA was all about. Sadly, this wisdom is lacking in DC where it should be upheld. We need someone to take us back to the essential truths and jumpstart our great nation.

Waffler, Smith

A great quote from a lousy President who put us on to our present destructive financial path. We will recover however we will recover.
