Good thing we're not at a real salad bar, because I'd be lobotomizing myself with a fork just to make the pain stop.So Ronald Reagan spoke to us then with us here in our hearts is where he reached us, and that's where he won the arguments and then, this was, this was the good part, we the American people through him, we imposed our will on Washington, and that is the way it's supposed to be.
(I think that sentence may get the "Word Salad Award.")Our government is supposed to be working for us, we are not to be working for our government. It's our will to be imposed on them. (applause) He captured our hearts so he could affect positive change by what he did. He focused on our kids, on our children, on their future, on the future of America. And when he fought socialism and any sort of tyranny that he knew would ruin us, he stood strong on his knowing that the framework through which he believed that positive change that framework for our kids, it was freedom.
(Wait.....no....maybe it was that one)Today the things that some in Washington would do to take away our freedoms, it's absolutely astounding, and we would do so well to look back on those Reagan years as he championed the cause for freedom and then he lived it out as our president - cheerfully, persistently and unapologetically. Reagan knew that real change and real change requiring shaking things up and maybe takin' off the entrenched interest thwarting the will of the people with their ignoring of our concerns about future peril caused by selfish short-sighted advocacy for growing government and digging more debt, and taking away individual and state's rights and hampering opportunity to responsibly develop our resources, and coddling those who would seek to harm America and her allies.
(Nope. It's definitely THAT one!)
As Lulu said:
Just think, boys and girls -- the Republican brain trust (and I use the term very loosely) actually believed this was someone capable of being one rather feeble heartbeat away from the presidency.That's the exact thought that haunts my nightmares. Especially since these flaming fuckwits still think "Palin for President!" isn't a sick fucking joke. I guess she blinds them with bullshit.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go find a jelly mold for my poor melted brain. I'm hoping it'll reset overnight...
