Monday wisdom from the Gipper

“I have always believed that America is strongest and freest and happiest when it is truest to the wisdom of its Founders. In Federalist 45, James Madison wrote that ‘The powers delegated by the Constitution to the Federal Government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State Government are numerous and indefinite.’ Or to put it another way, ‘We the People.’ As long as we remember these words—’We the People’ —and make them our guide, so long as we remember that America has always drawn its inspiration from the people and has always been governed best when governed most by those governments closest to the people, America will remain strong and free, the envy of the world.” —Ronald Reagan

from the Patriot Post.


  1. Ronald Reagan was the best president America has ever seen. Wonder what will be in store for us this year? It's a toss up as to whom will be our next president, but I can honestly say I'm not excited about going to the polls this year. (First year I have not been looking forward to election day). I may just go write someone in. I'm kind of disappointed that Huckabee did not win the Republican's nomination. Your thoughts?

  2. Unfortunately, we have the choice between an arrogant elitist Marxist or a not-so-conservative open borders Hawk.

    Given the damage the Obamessiah could wreak on the country for many, many years (see Jimmuh Carter), I'll gladly hold my nose and vote for Juan McCain.


I'll be happy to post your comment if it meets my criteria. Note: my criteria may change. At any time.
