Here we have had probably the greatest president willing to tell it like it is.
He spoke with his own words, writing his own speaches (unlike president of today).
"Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other."
Besides Jefferson, I cannot think of any other President who spoke as such, about their own government.
"Government is the people's business and every man, woman and child becomes a shareholder with the first penny of tax paid."
Does everyone understand what he is implying? That we the people are in control of the government, not the other way around.
And a quote for those who recall his oddball comments;
"I've often wondered, what if all of us in the world discovered that we were threatened by a greater power from outer space from another
planet--wouldn't we all of a sudden find that we didn't have any differences between us at all?"
Reagan is essentially the guy who said, "Can't we all just get along?", but not in those exact words.
So why were there so many attempts on his life, what were "they" trying to prevent or hide. We will never know, or will we...
Some of you are probably wondering, what is he typing about, what is this thread leading to. Well if any of you have read the numerous threads of mine
it may be more clear. For those who have not, take another glance at my avatar, it may dawn on you eventually.
Our government is getting out of control, if it isn't someone is doing a great job of making us think it is. Smear campaigns, propaganda, mis and dis
information. Who is it for, the American people, our "enemies"?
Some time back there was a saying going around, "Take back ATS" and other nonsence, well what about TAKE BACK AMERICA!
Or even take back the world.
It seems the people have been manipulated by fear, or maybe this quote would say it better;
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask
not your counsel or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands, which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were
- Samuel Adams, debates of 1776
I will let this post close with another quote, as I feel it best describes that
people of today, are no different than yesterday. Besides it just goes so well with the above quote.
"All Experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, when Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to
which they are accustomed."
