    He certainly had a way with a phrase.



    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



    "If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."

    - Ronald Reagan



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

    - Ronald Reagan

    - 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

    A few more.

    "Thomas Jefferson once said, 'We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.' And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying." - Ronald Reagan

    "How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin." - Ronald Reagan

    "To sit back hoping that someday, someway, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last--but eat you he will." - Ronald Reagan

    "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, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

    We always need them the most. As Reagan said, freedom is always one generation from death. Right now, we have leaders like these, but they're being scared out of leadership positions by a press that prefers scandal to success.
