Wise Guy: Ronald Reagan

Ronald Wilson Reagan, the 40th President of the United States, was known as the Great Communicator for a reason. With poignancy and wit, he spoke timeless principles of freedom and conservatism directly to the hearts of Americans everywhere. We would be well-advised to heed his words today.

"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 or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

"Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty."

"Man is not free unless government is limited."
President Reagan was a very wise man indeed.
