Ronald Reagan’s “Shining City On A Hill”

Ronald Reagan, where are you when we need you?!

Today would be President Ronald Reagan’s 99th birthday.  May God bless and caress him for us, We, the People, whom he loved and lead.  We, the People, love and appreciate Reagan, the man, the mench, for his kindness, his integrity, his values, his patriotism, his determination, and his faith in We, the People.  He kept the vision of a “Shining City on a hill” before his eyes.  So, too, must we! Ronald Reagan is bright in our memory. Now we must live his dream. Freedom couldn’t have found a more clarion voice and heart to shout down the walls of tyranny by speaking with common sense. Listen again to his words of farewell:

Obama Calling America “Arrogant” Update

Update:

I’m sorry. I was in a hurry and didn’t do Obama’s comments justice.  In referring to America Obama said we’d “shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive…” Charles Krauthammer fills in the blanks for me with regards to a fuller history on the subject.

Commenting on President Barack Obama’s lack of grace in dissing his country on the world stage, Steven Forbes says, President Obama should take a day off. Go to Camp David. Watch some old tapes of Ronald Reagan, and learn what it’s like to be a real President.

Charles Krauthammer says more:

Worth Repeating

Lest we forget.  Thanks to the Anchoress and the Rainmaker this outside of time debate speaks not only for itself  but it pulls back the veil on Obama. BTW \”apocalypse\” is the word associated with pulling back the veil.

Navigating Slippery Slope or Raping America

Charles Krauthammer has Obama navigating a slippery slope into socialism. Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress, says Krauthammer, “…constitutes the boldest social democratic manifesto ever issued by a U.S. President”.

To my mind, it is a social program that should be called the Rape of America.  Obama’s taking Miss Liberty in a direction she doesn’t want to go.  When Ronald Reagan came to office wanting to take America on a different trajectory,  Krauthammer says Reagan’s aim was to “shrink government, lower taxes, rebuild American defense.”  How long will it be before we will see that again in this nation?

Obama’s will is to force universal health care, universal education and  green energy via government funds, government regulation, by government Democrat’s and Presidential manifesto down our collective throat.   How?  Krauthammer explains, “We know what opportunity he wants to seize. Just as the Depression created the political and psychological conditions for Franklin Roosevelt’s transformation of America from laissez-faireism to the beginnings of the welfare state, the current crisis gives Obama the political space to move the still (relatively) modest American welfare state toward European-style social democracy.”

Is there the will or the way among Conservatives, Independents, Libertarians and still breathing Republicans to stop the plunder and pillage.  Michael Steele, the new chairman of the Republican National Committee and thinking Americans have their work cut out for them.  They need to find traction, indeed, rescue and deliverance, from Obama’s slide into Socialism.

Foundational Basics

Today is about more than hearts and flowers.  Everybody knows it’s crunch time for the U.S.A.  When things get really bad,  the American people have a way of getting back to basics.  The basics start with the foundational underpinnings of our Nation.  Ronald Reagan got it right!  Others, it seems, don’t like the founding fundamentals   They hope for changes that will create an America no one will recognize as America.    Texas Rainmaker and the Anchoress spell it out.

Reagan and Obama in their own words.
