“The Democrats in the legislature agreed with us that welfare costs were headed for the stratosphere but claimed the solution was a huge tax increase—in other words, to keep pouring more money into a bucket that was full of holes.”

Ronald Reagan

“If we’re free to dare – and we are – if we’re free to give – and we are – then we’re free to shape the future and have within our grasp all that we dream the future will be.”

Ronald Reagan

“The federal government did not create the states; the states created the federal government.”

Ronald Reagan

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

Ronald Reagan

“Surround yourself with great people; delegate authority; get out of the way”

Ronald Reagan

“Christmas can be celebrated in the school room with pine trees, tinsel and reindeers, but there must be no mention of the man whose birthday is being celebrated. One wonders how a teacher would answer if a student asked why it was called Christmas.”

Ronald Reagan

“Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.”

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

“You can’t tax business. Business doesn’t pay taxes. It collects taxes.”

Ronald Reagan

“As I have often said, governments don’t produce economic growth, people do.”

Ronald Reagan

“Many countries of the world, I said, had constitutions, but in almost every case they were documents in which governments told their people what they could do. The United States had a constitution, I said, that was different from all the others because in it the people tell their government what it can do. Its three most important words are “We the people,” its most important principle, freedom.” 

Ronald Reagan

“My assignment as the post’s adjutant and personnel officer (I ended the war a captain) put me in close contact with the civilian bureaucrats and it didn’t take long for me to decide I didn’t think much of the inefficiency, empire building, and business-as-usual attitude that existed in wartime under the civil service system. If I suggested that an employee might be expendable, his supervisor would look at me as if I were crazy. He didn’t want to reduce the size of his department; his salary was based to a large extent on the number of people he supervised. He wanted to increase it, not decrease it. I discovered it was almost impossible to remove an incompetent or lazy worker and that one of the most popular methods supervisors used in dealing with an incompetent was to transfer him or her out of his department to a higher-paying job in another department. We had a warehouse filled with cabinets containing old records that had no use or historic value. They were totally obsolete. Well, with a war on, there was a need for the warehouse and the filing cabinets, so a request was sent up through channels requesting permission to destroy the obsolete papers. Back came a reply—permission granted provided copies are made of each paper destroyed.” 

Ronald Reagan

“We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we may always be free.”

Ronald Reagan

“But Nancy is right—Presidents don’t have vacations—they just have a change of scenery”

Ronald Reagan

“I do not want to go back to the past; I want to go back to the past way of facing the future.”

Ronald Reagan
