Who I Really Miss

The recent flap about the billboard with George Bush asking "Miss Me Yet?" was amusing. But the president I really miss is Reagan. Here are some reminders why:

"Socialism only works in two places:

Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it."

- Ronald Reagan

'Here's my strategy on the Cold War:

We win, they lose.'

- Ronald Reagan

'The most terrifying words in the English language are:

I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

-Ronald Reagan

'The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant;

it's just that they know so much that isn't so.'

-Ronald Reagan

'Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the

U.S. was too strong.'

- Ronald Reagan

'I have wondered at times about what the

Ten Commandments would have looked like if

Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.'

-Ronald Reagan

'The taxpayer: That's someone who works for

the federal government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination.'

- 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

'The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.' -

Ronald Reagan

'It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession.

I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.'

- 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

'Politics is not a bad profession.

If you succeed, there are many rewards;

if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.'

- Ronald Reagan

'No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world,

is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.'-

Ronald Reagan

'If we ever forget that we're one nation under GOD,

then we will be a nation gone under.'

-Ronald Reagan
