The Freeman's Burden:

To defend the principles of human liberty; to educate; to be vigilant against the ever expanding power of the state.

Some Words of Wisdom from the Great Communicator...Sound like someone we know?

People do not make wars; governments do.
~Ronald Reagan

Protecting the rights of even the least individual among us is basically the only excuse the government has for even existing.
~Ronald Reagan mother would ever willingly sacrifice her sons for territorial gain, for economic advantage, for ideology.
~Ronald Reagan

A people free to choose will always choose peace.
~Ronald Reagan

Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.
~Ronald Reagan

We must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
~Ronald Reagan

Our reluctance for conflict should not be misjudged as a failure of will.
~Ronald Reagan

History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.
~Ronald Reagan

Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.
~Ronald Reagan

The defense policy of the United States is based on a simple premise: The United States does not start fights. We will never be an aggressor.
~Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan was the greatest President of my lifetime and it is during times like these I wish he was in the oval office again. The confidence he gave Americans to try and reach the shy, the pride he gave the country, and the stature he gave government was something that comes once every 50 years.

Reagan is now an icon. By definition an icon is the spiritual reflection of the person. His writings and recording are theological; his biographies, gospel. Ronald Reagan proved that there is a moral/spiritual aspect to public service, which cannot be, and has never been separated from politics. That was his guiding force to greatness: The ability to clear see history with an eye on the future.
