Look back to look forward...

I've been watching and listening to a seminal speech in American political history.  Before the Patriot Act, Ronald Reagan was railing against the surrendering of freedom in exchange for "security. Before "No Child Left Behind", Ronald Reagan was detailing a massive bureaucracy that had encroached upon Constitutional constraints.  Friends, I long for a Republican party that held the very values that Ronald Reagan articulated so well in this speech. Sadly, the party of Reagan has now become the party of McCain, Bush and Cheney. The phrase is "Peace through Strength," not Peace through might makes right. Watch this, and remember that the GOP used to stand for individual liberty and sound fiscal policy.
