My Thoughts As I Try to Remain Cheerful...

Whatcha' think about this?

You betcha'!!!
Now a blast from the past!

I had forgotten just how awesome he was, until I read and remembered some of the stuff he said... and stood for .


'Here's my strategy on the Cold War: We win, they lose.'

- Ronald Reagan

'The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

- Ronald Reagan

'The trouble with our liberal friends are not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.'

- Ronald Reagan

'Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.'
- Ronald Reagan

'I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.'

- Ronald Reagan

'The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal

government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination.'
- Ronald Reagan

'Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.'
- Ronald Reagan

'The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.'

- Ronald Reagan

'It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.'

- Ronald Reagan

'Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.'

- Ronald Reagan

'Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.'

- Ronald Reagan

'No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.'

- Ronald Reagan

'If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.'
- Ronald Reagan


And I keep reminding myself of this:

We did have some great leaders in our past. Ronald Reagan was a very wise man. If only we could have a leader like that today, (sigh).

Well, as I said in the latest post on my blog, "I know not what the future holds, but I know who holds the future."

Praise God, He is still on the throne!

just remember that he came AFTER Carter.



Thanks for the trip down memory land. Those were the days. I would be sad but I know that God is in control of this too. My Pastor read a verse tonight that was a help to me hope it will be to you also until next time. Proverbs 21:1THE KING'S HEART IS IN THE HAND OF THE LORD, AS THE RIVERS OF WATER: HE TURNETH IT WHITHERSOEVER HE WILL. connie
