A Reagan Sampler
"The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination."It was a refreshing change.
"The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program."
We need that kind of change of thinking again. I don't know where it went.
Minh-Duc: Bush does talk like Reagan and act like Johnson. The problem with government is that the media and the political types shower accolades on politicians for what they spend money on, not for what they don't spend money on. If you were promised love and attention for spending money, and you had an unlimited amount of other peoples' money you could take from, would you be able to resist?
I don't think anyone will ever honestly write the story of his impact on history.
