Change the numbers to trillions and the names of those mentioned and Reagan’s speech in the Fall of 1964 could be given today. His remarks about liberalism are as true today as they were then.
Unfortunately, I believe America is at a crossroads…”a time for choosing”.
It is time to choose whether we wish for a bleak future for ourselves and families through crushing debt and massive spending or whether we want a massively reduced government that lives within its means.
It is time to choose whether we will respect our traditional allies or continue to undermine them while enabling and propping up totalitarian regimes across the globe.
It is time to choose whether we will continue to allow the scourge of “multiculturalism” to eliminate our borders and to allow mini-cultures and laws outside of our own system or will be seal our borders, abide by the framework of our Constitutional law, and call out radical Islam and illegal immigration for what it is.
It is time to choose whether we embrace the notions of individual freedom and liberty, as our Founders did, or will we continue to allow the decay of liberty in exchange for a collectivist society that is led by elites who never reap the “rewards” of such a welfare state.
It is time to choose whether we will continue to embrace those who ignore the Constitution in favor of their own set of standards or will we continue to respect the wisdom and intent of our Founders.
Reagan says it all so much better than I can…. (UPDATE: Sarah Palin says it well, too!!)
It is a long speech, but so well worth listening to and understanding that the principles that Reagan espoused are the same ones we should be talking about today.
Happy 100th Birthday, Ronald Reagan. America needs another like you!
