Remember to 'move your clocks back one hour'
Unfortunately we do not have the ability to
'MOVE BACK OUR CALENDARS'
"I, Ronald Reagan, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God."
On that momentous day, Ronald Reagan did not stand before the American people and pontificate the merits of big government, rather taking the opportunity to remind us,
"...government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem."
Unlike today's current 'head administrator,'
President Reagan called attention to, not BIG GOVERNMENT, but to the American people--past, present and future generations--who not only make this a great nation, but whose hard work leads to the betterment of all mankind.
"Those who say that we are in a time when there are no heroes, they just don't know where to look," Mr. Reagan said, employing an almost conversational style rather than flights of rhetoric. He spoke of "professionals, industrialists, shopkeepers, clerks, cabbies and families who pay taxes to support the Government and whose voluntary gifts support church, charity, culture, art and education."
"I have used the words 'they' and 'their' in speaking of these heroes," Mr. Reagan said. "I could say 'you' and 'your' because I am addressing the heroes of whom I speak- you, the citizens of this blessed land.
Your dreams, your hopes, your goals are going to be the dreams the hopes and the goals of this Administration, so help me God."
