Ronald Reagan's quotes
Ronald Reagan's 5 speeches
"Freedom is the recognition that no single person, no single authority or government has a monopoly on the truth, but that every individual life is infinitely precious, that every one of us put in this world has been put there for a reason and has something to offer."
"The federal government has taken too much tax money from the people, too much authority from the states, and too much liberty with the Constitution."
"Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem."
"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."
"Christmas can be celebrated in the school room with pine trees, tinsel and reindeers, but there must be no mention of the man whose birthday is being celebrated. One wonders how a teacher would answer if a student asked why it was called Christmas."
"Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."
"Our natural, inalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation from government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment."
"Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"
"I think the best possible social program is a job."
"Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other."

"The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and 'slipped the surly bonds of earth' to 'touch the face of God.'"
"We who live in free market societies believe that growth, prosperity and ultimately human fulfillment, are created from the bottom up, not the government down. Only when the human spirit is allowed to invent and create, only when individuals are given a personal stake in deciding economic policies and benefitting from their success -- only then can societies remain economically alive, dynamic, progressive, and free."
"There are some who've forgotten why we have a military. It's not to promote war; it's to be prepared for peace."
War & Peace
"We need true tax reform that will at least make a start toward restoring for our children the American Dream that wealth is denied to no one, that each individual has the right to fly as high as his strength and ability will take him."
"The West will not contain Communism, it will transcend Communism. We will not bother to denounce it, we'll dismiss it as a sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages are even now being written."
"Nations crumble from within when the citizenry asks of government those things which the citizenry might better provide for itself."
