Default Reagan Quotes

As was brought up in the Hillary thread, Reagan had some funny/great quotes.

Figured I'd start a new thread.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. - 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

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

Heroes may not be braver than anyone else. They're just braver five minutes longer. - Ronald Reagan

History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap. - Ronald Reagan

How can a president not be an actor? - Ronald Reagan

I couldn't help but say to Mr. Gorbachev just think how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from another planet. We'd find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this earth together. - Ronald Reagan

I have left orders to be awakened at any time in case of national emergency, even if I'm in a cabinet meeting. - Ronald Reagan

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under. - Ronald Reagan

It's silly talking about how many years we will have to spend in the jungles of Vietnam when we could pave the whole country and put parking stripes on it and still be home by Christmas. - Ronald Reagan


My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes. - Ronald Reagan

For a man in his position under that type of stress, Ronnie did have a sense of humor about him...

Too bad I'm too young to have been there for those. The world needs more people with a good sense of humor.

Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.
