    You don't realize how much you miss him, until you read and remember some of the stuff he said and stood for:


    "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 Commandment's 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

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

    "I've laid down the law, though, to everyone from now on about anything that happens: no matter what time it is, wake me, even if it's in the middle of a Cabinet meeting." - 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

    "No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. - Ronald Reagan

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

    Those one liners put Ron on par with Mark Twain and Will Rogers. We need another Ron, and I hope we don't have to wait too long.
