[High Praise! to The Astute Bloggers]

From Reagan’s 1964 “A Time for Choosing” speech.

[Reagan – Peace this Second if we Surrender]

The most remarkable thing about this speech is that – at the time he gave it – it was unremarkable for a man to say such things in public.

    Remember when presidents thought like THIS:?

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it; . . .”

    I sure do.
