Those concerns of a national character-such as air and water pollution that do not respect state boundaries, or the national transportation system, or efforts to safeguard your civil liberties-must, of course, be handled on the national level.
In 1992, the federal Government actually issued more work authorizations to immigrants and temporary foreign workers than the net number of new jobs created by our economy. Something is fundamentally wrong when we have millions of American citizens and legal residents begging for jobs, and yet we ar
Government always finds a need for whatever money it gets.
The most fundamental paradox is that, if we're never to use force, we must be prepared to use it and to use it successfully. We Americans don't want war, and we don't start fights. We don't maintain a strong military force to conquer or coerce others. The purpose of our military is simple and straig
When those who are governed do too little, those who govern can - and often will - do too much.
Throughout our history, We Americans have been willing to meet great challenges and do what is right when our destiny demanded it.
Some years ago a top Ford official was showing the late Walter Reuther through the very automates plant in Cleveland, Ohio and he said to him jokingly, "Walter, you'll have a hard time collecting union dues from these machines." and Walter said, "you are going to have more trouble trying to sell aut
Some people wonder all their lives if they've made a difference. The Marines don't have that problem.
Our American tradition of neighbor helping neighbor has always been one of our greatest strengths and most noble traditions.
They say hard work never hurt anybody, but I figure why take the chance.
Congressional mistakes have dramatically increased immigration through a series of what I believe were ill-advised actions going back to 1965 when the basic notions of our immigration laws were revised. In 1990, Congress opened the floodgates by passing a 35-percent increase in legal immigration.
A state is nothing more than a reflection of its citizens; the more decent the citizens, the more decent the state.
We are never defeated unless we give up on God. Ronald Reaga
Well I've said it before and I'll say it again - America's best days are yet to come. Our proudest moments are yet to be. Our most glorious achievements are just ahead. America remains what Emerson called her 150 years ago, "the country of tomorrow." What a wonderful description and how true. And ye
The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of these United States are covenants we have made not only with ourselves, but with all mankind. Our founding documents proclaim to the world that freedom is not the sole prerogative of a chosen few. It is the universal right of all God's children
Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it.
We are not a warlike people. Nor is our history filled with tales of aggressive adventures and imperialism, which might come as a shock to some of the placard painters in our modern demonstrations. The lesson of Vietnam, I think, should be that never again will young Americans be asked to fight and
I've talked to you on a number of occasions about the economic problems our nation faces, and I am prepared to tell you it's in a hell of a mess-we're not connected to the press room yet, are we?
Thomas Jefferson made a comment about the Presidency and age. He said that one should not worry about one's exact chronological age in reference to his ability to perform one's task. And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying.
You can never underestimate the ability of the Democrats to wet their finger and hold it in the wind.
Those who say that we're in a time when there are no heroes, they just don't know where to look.
I believe in a sound, strong environmental policy that protects the health of our people and a wise stewardship of our nation's natural resources.
I favor the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and it must be enforced at gunpoint if necessary.
An actor knows two important things - to be honest in what he is doing and to be in touch with the audience. That's not bad advice for a politician either.
To grasp and hold a vision, that is the very essence of successful leadership-not only on the movie set where I learned it, but everywhere.
All the waste in a year from a nuclear power plant can be stored under a desk.
Well, I think there has to be some (gun) control.
Balancing your budget is like protecting your virtue. You have to learn when to say no.
Surround yourself with great people; delegate authority; get out of the way
The Soviet Union is the focus of evil in the modern world.
