Ronald Reagan On Personal Responsibility

Earlier today we heard the words .. ” I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Sadly, after four years of observing the actions of his first term, I must say those are just words, very empty words.

This country does not need more empty words. It does not need more opinion poll promises. It does not need more Governmental responsibility for the lives of its citizens. For if such things were key to our prosperity we would be living in the golden age of this Republic. But we are not.

What we need is a return to the most simple of beliefs, a return to the core philosophies on which this Republic, and her greatness, were founded.

A return to the beliefs of men like Ronald Wilson Reagan, who not only spoke, but lived these words of freedom:

“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.” ~ Ronald Reagan
