Ronald Reagan on Noble Causes

Yesterday was the birthday of a former California governor (1911-2004) who said
Double, no triple, our troubles and we'd still be better off than any other people on earth. It is time that we recognized that ours was, in truth, a noble cause.

Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.

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, subsidise it

Above all, we must realize that 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. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.

Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty.

Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.

History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.
