Ronald Wilson Reagan - His 103rd Birthday

I didn't know WHAT to do here, there are so many people that have followed this man through his life. Suffice it to say, anything that anyone can put together to present as a tribute to this great man will fall short of encompassing what he has meant to the world. So, I have at least done this -

Some quick quotes:

...the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.

Coercion, after all, merely captures man. Freedom captivates him.

Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.

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.

I know in my heart man is good...what is right will always eventually triumph...there's purpose and worth to each and every life.

In a world wracked by hatred, economic crisis, and political tension, America remains mankind's best hope.

We are a nation of freedom..under God..all citizens must have the opportunity to grow, create wealth, build a better life for those who follow.

Well, one of the worst mistakes anybody can make is to bet against Americans.

We in govt should learn to look at our country thru the eyes of the entrepreneur, seeing possibilities where others see only problems.

A truly successful army is one that, bc of its strength/ability/dedication, will not be one will dare..provoke it.

When we've taken up arms, it has been for the defense of freedom for ourselves and for other peaceful nations who needed our help.

At home, our enemy is no longer Red Coats, but red ink.

Balancing the budget is a little like protecting your virtue: You just have to learn to say "no."

...the problem is not the size of the deficit, it's the size of government's claim on our economy.

We cannot reduce the deficit by raising taxes.

Oh, and this, from me: No remarks from Obama on Ronald Reagan's 103rd, no Empire State Building lights ( are happy though, no doubt), no tweet.

Had to share this:
