Happy 100th birthday, President Reagan!

Still missing you on this, your 100th birthday.

Reagan raises a glass in a toast

Here's to you, Mr. President.

Rep. Ben Quayle (R-AZ) wrote a great piece on the Gipper in which he emphasized President Reagan’s gift for communication and his eternal optimism – and love of jelly beans. Make sure to read it as you’re remembering our nation’s 40th President. <):)

And while you’re at it, make sure to watch Sarah Palin’s Friday night speech honoring Reagan at the Young America’s Foundation’s Reagan birthday celebration banquet. Good stuff.

    A president who loved the country and didn’t look down his nose in contempt at its people. What a concept.

    Our greatest president of the 2oth century. God, I miss him.

    There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.

    from his Farewell Address in 1989, and even more relevant today.

    Imagine for a moment, Barack Obama saying …

    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? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. — Ronald Reagan

    … I can’t either

    I imagine the drive to control others’ lives is so strong in moderates/liberals/leftists/statists because at any given moment those elitists can feel their lives spinning out of control due to outside influences. To compensate for that lack of total control they turn to “lesser” people so they can control them because, obviously, if an elitist can’t control his/her own life what chance do common folk have?

    This (and the inability to recognize reality) is ingrained in them, possibly genetically and environmentally, and they have no control over the temptation to exert such control.

    They started on that pathetic path in preschool, kindergarten or 1st grade so they never had a chance to be real, compassionate humans.

    Have pity on them (as you would a dog with a broken leg) for their soulless, impossible journey.
