The first President to exercise measurable impact on my life was Ronald Reagan.  American elected Reagan when I was 9 years old and he served through my senior year in High School.  Now at 42, I still consider him as my favorite President and today I want to share some of my favorite Ronald Reagan quotes.

“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.”

“If we ever forget we are ‘One Nation Under God,’ then we will be a nation gone under.”

“Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty”

“Man is not free unless government is limited.”

“There are no easy answers but there are simple answers.  We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.”

“I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the United States Congress.”

“Without God, democracy will not an cannot long endure.”

“Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all problems men face.”

“Let us be sure that those who come after will say of us in our time, that in our time we did everything that could be done.  We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith.”

I miss him.  How about you?
