Happy 99th Birthday

Here are a few quotes from the great communicator:

"Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty."

"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."

"Government always finds a need for whatever money it gets."

"Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives."

And my all time favorite

"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."

How true are the words of the late President Reagan. If his words rang true in today's world, we would not be in the fiasco in which we find ourselves. There is little to no hope for future generations turning back to the "good old days" when there were few unemployed workers, few house clorures, honest politicians, etc. etc.
