The Wisdom of Ronald Reagan

He was a leader of leaders and the greatest communicator of all presidents. He was a simple man with great wisdom and deep love for his wife Nancy. He spoke in simple language so the common person could understand him. I loved listening to him when I first came to America. He was one of my true English language teachers and inspired me to learn about this great country. He spoke with resolve and credibility because he knew the meaning of all he said. He inspired a nation and the world for peace and democracy. He deeply believed in freedom and entrepreneurship. He loved America and resurrected the American dream. His biggest achievements was to dismantle communism and give hope and belief for the helpless many. He loved and cared for people and they loved him in return. He became a friend to friends and foes.

What wouldn't we do to have him back now to unite the divisive forces roaming throughout America today?

1) The real enemy of America is not big business, it is big government. Government has an inborn tendency to grow. No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.

2) If we obey The Ten Commandments and The Golden Rule, there would be no need for other laws. Reagan wondered what The Commandments would have looked like if Moses had to run them through a Democratic Legislature? I think you know the answer to that (the mess we are in today).

3) Freedom is a fragile thing and it is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is easy to lose what we don’t value or don’t even know we have. An ignorant nation will not be free for very long.

4) Have you noticed that everyone that is for abortion has already been born? If we don’t respect the life of those that cannot defend themselves, the unborn, who would we respect then?

5) You won’t get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. The right to bear arms is guaranteed by our constitution as our founding fathers knew that sometime in the future government would be a threat to citizen’s freedom and prosperity.

6) One of the most important rules in politics is poise – looking like an owl after you have behaved like a Jackass. Imagine politicians saying and doing what is right instead of saying and doing what will get them popularity to get reelected?

7) When he saw all the rhetoric smoke billowing up from the democrats he chose not to inhale it. Bet he is up there having a hard time seeing through all the smoke on his beloved America.

Be blessed, and then be a blessing to others
Carlos Fontana, President of Phalanx
