This is a must watch video for those who are under the age of 40 and those over the age of 40 that didn’t get it the first time. If that offended you I am truly sorry, please accept my apology and read on.
Keep in mind the maxim; “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it” George Santayana.
I recently watched this 1981 Inauguration speech by Ronald Reagan. Not only was he a powerful orator, he foresaw and warned of many troubles that we have today. He said it would be a battle of inches over years to turn around a government that has over reached its intended purpose. He forewarns of today’s trouble of a growing Federal Government as it takes away rights from the states (sounds too much like Obama trashing Arizona with his quips). Reagan quote “the states created the federal government, not the other way around”. This is the speech where he said, “Government is not the solution to our problems, it is the problem”. There are several tidbits of worthy quotes throughout his speech. For those predisposed to hate Ronald Reagan it will take an open mind to connect the dots. If you were born in the late 40’s early 50’s you will have lived through our declining culture and witnessed an out-of-control government as it burdens us beyond belief. I hope you take the time to listen. I assure you his thoughts still resonate today. If you see it differently I would love to hear from you. The floor is yours.
