Some Reagan quotes to ponder this month…

“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.” -Ronald Reagan

“We are a nation that has a government — not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the earth. Our government has no power except that granted to it by the people.  It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.”

“In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we’ve been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people.  Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?”

 

And my favorite… that I argue with my liberal friends continually.  Reagan is right.  I am right.  Liberals are wrong.  Simple as that…

“The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us. Business doesn’t pay taxes…. Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business. Begin with the food and fiber raised in the farm, to the ore drilled in a mine, to the oil and gas from out of the ground, whatever it may be — through the processing, through the manufacturing, on out to the retailer’s license. If the tax cannot be included in the price of the product, no one along that line can stay in business.”
