Today would have been Ronald Reagan’s 98th birthday.  Boy, do I miss him.

One of the best resources for Reagan stuff (speeches, etc) is Reagan 2020.

Here is one of my favorite quotes:

“Isn’t our choice really not one of left or right, but of up or down? Down through the welfare state to statism, to more and more government largesse accompanied always by more government authority, less individual liberty, and ultimately, totalitarianism, always advanced as for our own good.  The alternative is the dream conceived by our Founding Fathers, up to the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with an orderly society.  We don’t celebrate dependence day on the Fourth of July.  We celebrate Independence Day.” –Ronald Reagan

(Remarks on accepting the GOP Presidential Nomination, Dallas, Texas, August 23, 1984)
