I Miss This Guy

'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

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

'Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it' - Ronald Reagan

'Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.' - Ronald Reagan

'No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.'- Ronald Reagan

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

We need another man like him, now would be a good time.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. Will Durant

His son's on the radio. He's a liberal but still a bright guy.

On Ronald Reagan, I still remember his speech after the space shuttle disaster. He had a great way with words and an excellent delivery.

He was actually not such a good actor at all Vlad, the only movie he made that I know the name of is Bedtime for Bonzo. He did however send me on an all expenses paid trip to a tropical island, where I met strange and exotic people from other cultures as well as a bunch of medical students. Problem is those strange, and exotic people were Cuban, and Soviet Soldiers who wanted to kill me.
