I have only one thing to say to the tax increasers: Go ahead, make my day.
Simple fairness dictates that government must not raise taxes on families struggling to pay their bills.
There is a limit to what you can do in politics.
We hear much of special interest groups. Well, our concern must be for a special interest group that has been too long neglected. It knows no sectional boundaries or ethnic and racial divisions, and it crosses political party lines. It is made up of men and women who raise our food, patrol our stree
In this new world economy, national boundaries are increasingly becoming obsolete.
There you go again. When I opposed Medicare, there was another piece of legislation meeting the same problem before the Congress. I happened to favor the other piece of legislation and thought that it would be better for the senior citizens to provide better care than the one that was finally passed
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.
I never drink coffee at lunch. I find it keeps me awake for the afternoon. Ronald Reaga
We should measure welfare's success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.
Labor force needs and economic conditions are disregarded in our policies. Many aspects of our current policies and procedures are patently wrong. For example, legal immigration has almost no link to U.S. employment needs or economic conditions.
The economic welfare of all our people must ultimately stem not from government programs, but from the wealth created by a vigorous private sector.
. . . Government should do only those things the people cannot do for themselves.
Without a vision the people perish.
Anybody from any corner of the world can come to America to live and become an American.
We in government should learn to look at our country with the eyes of the entrepreneur, seeing possibilities where others see only problems
I've been told that some members of Congress disagree with my tax cut proposal. Well, you know it's been said that taxation is the art of plucking feathers without killing the bird. It's time they realized the bird just doesn't have any feathers left.
If our planes were shot down, yes, they's wake me right away. If the other fellows' were shot down, why wake me up?
Were not cutting the budget simply for the sake of sounder financial management. This is only a first step toward returning power to the states and communities, only a first step toward reordering the relationship between citizen and government.
America's view of apartheid is simple and straightforward: We believe it is wrong. We condemn it. And we are united in hoping for the day when apartheid will be no more.
Now back in 1927 an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism the American people will adopt every fragment of the socialist program.
For too long, too many people dependent on Social Security have been cruelly frightened by individuals seeking political gain through demagoguery and outright falsehood, and this must stop.
I oppose registration for the draft... because I believe the security of freedom can best be achieved by security through freedom.
I have seen the rise and fall of Nazi tyranny, the subsequent cold war and the nuclear nightmare that for fifty years haunted the dreams of children everywhere. During that time my generation defeated totalitarianism. As a result, your world is poised for better tomorrows. What will you do on your j
The Soviet Union is the focus of evil in the modern world.
I don't have too much time for fiction.
I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'.
Surround yourself with great people; delegate authority; get out of the way
There are those, of course, who claim we must give up freedom in exchange for economic progress. Well, pardon me, but anyone trying to sell you that line is no better than a three-card-trick man. One thing becoming more clear every day is that freedom and progress go hand in hand. Throughout the dev
I was alarmed at my doctor's report: He said I was sound as a dollar.
Abraham Lincoln recognized that we could not survive as a free land when some men could decide that others were not fit to be free and should therefore be slaves. Likewise, we cannot survive as a free nation when some men decide that others are not fit to live and should be abandoned to abortion or
