    If you haven't already, I highly recommend watching Ronald Reagan's "A Time for Choosing" speech given in 1964, in support of Barry Goldwater's presidental bid.

    Though not overtly Christian in nature, there is no escaping President Reagan's patriotism in the spirit of the founding fathers.

    Even back in 1964, he warned of socialist and socialism masquerading around as liberal democrats. He warned that Social Security was already bankrupt and the people should not be forced into a system that has failed, when the same investment could yield a much higher return for retirement in the private sector.

    He mentioned how our gold is no longer ours, but owned by foreign investors (Federal Reserve Bankers).

    The speech is lengthy, but most inspiring.

    President Ronald Reagan was a true Patriot. He loved America, he loved his fellow man, and above all he loved God.

    Thanks for the link. Trust the memories of RWR will not drift away now that the hoopla of the funeral is passed.

    Actually, what I fear most is those that write history will elevate him to a king-like status as they have done with JFK and the Kennedy family. I honestly can't stand anyone referring to the Kennedy family as our "Camelot". They went overboard when John Jr. died. They kept referring to him as America's prince.

    Ronald Reagan was truly a great man, but he owed that all to the Lord. As his son Ron said at his eulogy, he didn't wear his faith on his sleeve, like so many other politicians, using it for politcial gain. He was a humble servant of God, and to me, that is what matters most. That is how I like to remember him.
