Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
The liberals in this country have always hated Reagan, and the things the man stood for. But, have you ever noticed when they get in trouble politically, they suddenly start saying that they are being Reaganisque? That is what Obama is doing now.
The problem with that is, one of the major differences between the two, that make them polar opposites, is that President Reagan was a 2nd person president. He never thought of himself. He thought of the American people, and what was best for them. He thought of America and what was best for the country. Obama on the other hand is a 1st person president. He thinks only of himself. Never of the American people or America. Reagan loved America and her people, while Obama loves her enemies. Just like the rest of the left does.
One thing that Reagan once said was “A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his.” That could be changed to fit today, by changing the last line to, “And recovery is when Barack Obama loses his.” This fits today because never in our history have we had a lying cheating president like Obama is, in that Obama cares nothing for what the people want. Only what he wants to pass against the American people.
Less government, a strong national defense. Reagan’s ideals. Something that worked to make America strong during Reagan’s administration. Sure, he did things wrong. He like all other presidents failed with the border. But his failures are far out-lit by his accomplishments. The tearing down of the Berlin wall is accredited to him. The end of the cold war. The liberals say he only lowered taxes for the rich, but in doing so, he started a prosperity in this nation that continued through Bush, though the liberal left tried hard to destroy it from the beginning.
Reagan could talk. And he is best known for bringing both sides of the isle together to pass things into legislation that other presidents haven’t been able to do, or come close too.
And out of everyone right now, the one that the GOP has that seems to resemble Reagan more than any of the field, is also the one that scares the left the most. Sarah Palin. I feel, that right now, she isn’t ready for the Presidency, but, feel that with more experience, she could be a great one.
Today, is Ronald Reagan’s birthday. If still alive, he would have been 100 today. A life that was great partly because of his commitment to America. He put the country on a pro growth path that lasted for over 20 years…..though now, we have the left working hard to make Americans think that they’re policies are what Reagan was after.
“In the Reagan presidency, we knew every morning,” said a member of his cabinet. “what the job was. Cut taxes, make government smaller and fight Russians.” Reagan taught us all, that the job was not too big for one man, if done right. He believed that his administration existed not for pressing his own agenda’s but, instead for pushing forth the will of the people.
Reagan came into the presidential limelight during the first presidential election that I remember really wanting to take part in. And that part of course was in the voting booth. I was living in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the time. A long long way from Washington DC and the people that were trying to rule my life with an iron fist. And it brought to mind one thing that Reagan always said. “Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end, and no sense of repsonibility at the other.” Government is exactly that. No responsibility for what is done wrong especially, but it does have an extremely great appetite for blaming others for the wrongs they do. A great example is Obama. He is still blaming Bush for what is going wrong in his administration, when in fact, everything is his now. The republicans have never been allowed to blame like that after so long a time in office…..But again, I digress.
Again, today is Ronald Reagan’s birthday. Today is the day to remember just what he did do for America, and stop listening to Obama trying hard to make us think he is the new Reagan. Happy Birthday President Reagan. We are trying hard to keep your American loving ideals alive. As Reagan said: I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there’s purpose and worth to each and every life. What a positive attitude. An attitude like that in Washington today could help solve a lot of the problems America faces today. That, and doing what is right that is……
And onto a different note…..Green Bay won the Super Bowl, 31 – 25
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans.
