With all the politcs of today don't you miss Ronald Reagan? I mean not only was he articulate, funny and smart, he was entertaining as well. Maybe his acting career helped him there some but he was genuinely just a pretty well liked guy no matter your politics.
Here's a few of his words he left behind to remember him by:
"Here's my strategy on the cold war; we win; they lose."
"The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
"The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just they know so much that isn't so."
"Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the US was too strong."
"I have wondered at times about what the 10 Commandments would have looked like had Moses run them thru the US Congress."
"The Taxpayer: That's someone who works for the Federal Government but doesn't have to take the Civil Service Examination."
"Government is like a baby: an alimentary canal with a big appetite on one end and no sense of responsibility at the other."
"The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program."
"It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first. "
"Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book."
"No arsenal or no weapon in the arsenols of the world is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women."
"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God then we will be a nation gone under."
