My Sunday Blessings

President Ronald Regan
Words from a great President!!

** 'Here's my strategy on the Cold War: We win, they lose.'

** 'The most terrifying words in the English language are: 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 so 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 rewards; 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 one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.' (AMEN!!!)

I didn't realize that some of those quotes came from him. I wish more people believed that way today. I wonder if more people do and it's just our leaders who don't?
