Happy 100 Year Birthday Gipper

Yes the Conservatives Conservative, Ronald Wilson Reagan, the gipper would have been 100 years old today.

So in honor of the Gipper, I will list some of my favorite quotes by one of our greatest Presidents to ever grace the halls of the Whitehouse.

-Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.


-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, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.


-How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin.


-If you're afraid of the future, then get out of the way, stand aside. The people of this country are ready to move again.


-The ultimate determinant in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas-a trial of spiritual resolve: the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideals to which we are dedicated.


-Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall! 


-Recession is when a neighbor loses his job. Depression is when you lose yours. 


-Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.


-Without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure


Happy 100th Mr President.

Wonder what my horoscope was yesterday?

Ron Reagan the man who made abortions legal, who signed into law the largest peacetime tax increase, who granted amnesty to illegal immigrants, and all those other largely republican issues.

"Who made abortion legal"
??? What?

"signed into law the largest peacetime tax increase,"
Of course the liberal left mistakenly call the Tax Reform Act of 1986 an increase, when it was revenue natural.

"amnesty to illegal immigrants"
No one ever said he was perfect.

But he did get us out of the Carter years mess. You know Carter, the second worst president, next to Obama. :)

The Amesty program was suppose to be a one time shot and Congress was to fix the illegal immigration problem, of which they did not do!

This is why, today, America is faced with the same situation. Because of the historical inaction by Congress most Americans don't want any amnesty 'before' fixing the problem, so we don't have to face this again.

Was Reagan right in working with the Dems back then concerning immigration? No, he got screwed. Just shows when you try to work with Dems it doesn't work they way they said it would.

One class act he was!
