Friday Filosophy #2015-22

This week, in Friday Filosophy #2015-22, let’s go back to an earlier era. Some of us might want to return to yesteryear – the times of Ronald Reagan.


We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

Peace is not the absence of conflict. It is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.

When you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat.

Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.

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.

There are no limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination and wonder.

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

There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.

We are never defeated unless we give up on God.

We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music.

Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.

My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose – somehow we win out.

All great change in America begins at the dinner table.


The time is now.
