Reagan Was Not a Communist
Gordon Bishop On The Issues
As much as he tries, Barack Hussein Obama can not compare himself to The Great Communicator: RONALD REAGAN.
Reagan was more like our Founding Fathers: Washington, Jefferson, Adams (and, of course, Benjamin Franklin.)
It's easy to find out why the voters of America loved Reagan so much they kept him in the Oval Office for eight years.
The following 'Reaganisms" reveal why Ronald Reagan was our modern day Founding Fathers:
-"Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it."
-"Here's my strategy on the Cold War: We win, they lose."
-"The most terrifying words In the English language: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
-"The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know such much that isn't so."
-"Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong."
-"I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress."
-"The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination."
-"Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other."
-"The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program."
-"It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first."
-"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."
-"Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many reward' if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book."
-"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."
-"If we ever forget that we're nation under GOD, then we will be a nation gone under."
Reagan says, IF YOU AGREE, PLEASE FORWARD
IF NOT, READ IT AGAIN
As a reporter and columnist for the Newark Star-Ledger from 1969 to 1996 (New Jersey's largest daily newspaper), I was fortunate to be at the opening of Ronald Reagan's presidential campaign at Liberty State Park along the Jersey City waterfront, where Miss Liberty proudly stands with a bright torch in her hand, with the inspirational New York City skyscrapers in the backround.
(What a MOMENT!)
