Millions of individuals making their own decisions in the marketplace will always allocate resources better than any centralized government planning process.

Freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. It is the continuing revolution of the marketplace. It is the understanding that allows us to recognize shortcomings and seek solutions. It is the right to put forth an idea, scoffed at by the experts, and watch it catch fire among the people. It is the right to follow your dream, or stick to your conscience even if you're the only one in a sea of doubters.

Ronald Reagan
Our Founding Fathers well understood that concentrated power is the enemy of liberty and the rights of man. They knew that the American experiment in individual liberty, free enterprise and republican self-government could succeed only if power were widely distributed. And since in any society social and political power flow from economic power, they saw that wealth and property would have to be widely distributed among the people of the country. The truth of this insight is immediately apparent.
Ronald Reagan

Democracy is worth dying for, because it's the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man.

Ronald Reagan
But in the West today, we see a free world that has achieved a level of prosperity and well-being unprecedented in all human history. In the Communist world, we see failure, technological backwardness, declining standards of health, even want of the most basic kind - too little food. Even today, the Soviet Union still cannot feed itself. After these four decades, then, there stands before the entire world one great and inescapable conclusion: Freedom leads to prosperity. Freedom replaces the ancient hatreds among the nations with comity and peace. Freedom is the victor.

They say hard work never hurt anybody, but I figure why take the chance.

Ronald Reagan
We don't lump people by groups or special interests. And let me add, in the party of Lincoln there is no room for intolerance and not even a small corner for anti-Semitism or bigotry of any kind. Many people are welcome in our house, but not the bigots.
Ronald Reagan

Preservation of our environment is not a liberal or conservative challenge, it's common sense.

Ronald Reagan
The American dream is not that every man must be level with every other man. The American dream is that every man must be free to become whatever God intends he should become.

The current tax code is a daily mugging.
