“One way to make sure crime doesn't pay would be to let the government run it.” “Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.” "It's time to fundamentally change the way that we do business in Washington. To help build a new foundation for the 21st century, we need to reform our government so that it is more efficient, more transparent, and more creative. That will demand new thinking and a new sense of responsibility for every dollar that is spent."
“Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.” "If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists - to protect them and to promote their common welfare - all else is lost."
“The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.” "You will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime."
“To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last -- but eat you he will.” "I think when you spread the wealth around it's good for everybody."
"The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so." "We need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it's like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old - and that's the criterion by which I'll be selecting my judges."
"Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States" "If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
"We have the duty to protect the life of an unborn child." "I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby." ___________________________________________ Ronald Reagan
