These gentlemen are the moral equivalents of America's founding fathers.

Ronald Reagan

You can't be for big government, big taxes and big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy.

Ronald Reagan
We must remove government's smothering hand from where it does harm; we must seek to revitalize the proper functions of government. We do these things to set loose again the energy and the ingenuity of the American people. We do these things to reinvigorate those social and economic institutions which serve as a buffer and a bridge between the individual and the state - and which remain the real source of our progress as a people.
Ronald Reagan

Presidents come and go. History comes and goes, but principles endure.

Ronald Reagan
The best view of big government is in the rearview mirror as we leave it behind.
Ronald Reagan

People do not make wars; governments do.

Ronald Reagan
Politics is just like show business. You have a hell of an opening, coast for a while, and then have a hell of a close.
Ronald Reagan

Our natural, inalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation from government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment.

Ronald Reagan
A leader, once convinced that a particular course of action is the right one, must....be undaunted when the going gets tough.
Ronald Reagan

To those who cite the first amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions and everyday life, may I just say: The first amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny.

Ronald Reagan
If we love our country, we should also love our countrymen.
