• “It was leadership here at home that gave us strong American influence abroad, and the collapse of imperial Communism. Great nations have responsibilities to lead, and we should always be cautious of those who would lower our profile, because they might just wind up lowering our flag.” ~Ronald Reagan

  • “I still can’t help wondering how we can explain away what to me is the greatest miracle of all and which is recorded in history. No one denies there was such a man, that he lived and that he was put to death by crucifixion. Where … is the miracle I spoke of? Well consider this and let your imagination translate the story into our own time — possibly to your own hometown. A young man whose father is a carpenter grows up working in his father’s shop. One day he puts down his tools and walks out of his father’s shop. He starts preaching on street corners and in the nearby countryside, walking from place to place, preaching all the while, even though he is not an ordained minister. He never gets farther than an area perhaps 100 miles wide at the most. He does this for three years. Then he is arrested, tried and convicted. There is no court of appeal, so he is executed at age 33 along with two common thieves. Those in charge of his execution roll dice to see who gets his clothing — the only possessions he has. His family cannot afford a burial place for him so he is interred in a borrowed tomb. End of story? No, this uneducated, property-less young man has, for 2,000 years, had a greater effect on the world than all the rulers, kings, emperors; all the conquerors, generals and admirals, all the scholars, scientists and philosophers who have ever lived — all of them put together. How do we explain that — unless He really was what He said He was?” ~Ronald Reagan

  • “One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project . . . James Madison in 1788 . . . said . . . ‘There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by a gradual and silent encroachment of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations’ [so true] . . . What can we do about this? . . . We can write to our congressmen and our senators . . . Say right now that we want no further encroachment on these individual liberties and freedoms . . . We do not want socialized medicine . . . If you don’t, this program I promise you will pass . . . and behind it will come other federal programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known . . . until, one day . . . we will awake to find that we have socialism. And . . . you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children, what it once was like in America when men were free.” ~Ronald Reagan (1961)
