Human Events Picks Reagan’s Best Lines

, ,

Of the Human Events list, my choice would be:

6. “How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.” —Remarks in Arlington, Virginia, September 25, 1987

5. “The 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.” —Remarks to the White House Conference on Small Business, August 15, 1986

4. “I am not worried about the deficit. It is big enough to take care of itself.” —Said often during his presidency, 1981-1989

2. “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.” —The New York Times, September 22, 1980

One Feedback on "Human Events Picks Reagan’s Best Lines"

“The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

“Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.”
