Today is the birthday of my political hero, and one of the greatest Presidents in U.S. History, Ronald Wilson Reagan.
" 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."

"Freedom is one of the deepest and noblest aspirations of the human spirit."

"Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book."

"Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."

"The 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."

"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"

Thanks for honoring one of our greatest Presidents, Ronald W. Reagan.

I have a son "Reagan" named after our great President. He is proud to have his name and likes to let everyone know who he is named after.

By-the-way, President Reagan was a great supporter of vouchers and his writings and insight on this issue was a factor in my decision to vote for HB148.
