Ronald Regans Speech

  • Do they mean peace, or do we mean we just want to be left in peace.
  • Whether we believe in our capacity for self government or confess that a little intelectual elite in a far distant capital can plan our lives better for us than we can ourselves.
  • We are told we have to choose between a left and a right, but there is only an up or down.
  • The government cannot control the economy without controlling people, and when it sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion
  • Private property rights so diluted that public interest is anything that planners decide it should be
  •  the more the government planners fail, the more they plan
  • The trouble with socialists is not that they are ignorant, but just they know so much that isn't so
  • The social security program for seniors is analogous to golidlocks in that the cupboard is bare.
  • No government voluntarily reduces itself in size
  • A government bureau is the closest thing to eternal life we will ever see
  • They say we offer simple solutions to complex problems, well perhaps there is simple answer, but that does not mean it is easy.
  • If you want peace you can have it, just surrender. The greater danger is always appeasement
