Quote Of The Day — December 20, 2014

.
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, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Ronald Reagan, (February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004)

    Not just a great quote, but a prophesy being played out before our eyes.

    Amen!

    What Terry stated.

    We are doing our part at N&F to stem the tide. Hopefully we’ll wake some people up and give comfort to those that already have.

    “Never give up, Never surrender”

      All we can do is try, and keep on keeping on. And I think we’ve made a lot of inroads in helping people to understand the mess we’re in.
      But like the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink. He has to be thirsty.

    Good quote. I still miss him. Too bad he wasn’t cloned. Sadly, with the left owning the media, and educational systems, things such as WHAT freedom is ACTUALLY all about is simply NOT being taught. Much to the nation’s detriment.

    • Grouchy says:

      That pretty well seals the envelope, doesn’t it??? How sad is it, Clyde, that what folks have fought and bled for (And Ron Reagan was in the military before and during WW2 = Stateside service during World War II (1942–1945); Army Reserve (1937–1942) ) doesn’t seem to count for a hill of beans today.
      During WW2, it was almost expected our entertainers and athletes would volunteer. Today, it is a black mark against them if they do~!
      Rosie the Riveter is turning over in her grave, I’ll bet~!

    Great quote and great comments.

    Complacency is the best weapon that the thieves and power grubs could ever hope for.
