Weekend Wisdom: How to Be Free

We can not be free if government is pulling the puppet strings. The founding fathers wanted us citizens to be in control and not the government.

Historical Weekend Wisdom Finale

Today brings the end to Historical Weekend Wisdom done in honor of Inauguration Day.  I hope you gained some new insight about what founding fathers and past presidents thought about our country and government’s purpose.

I will end this series with 2 quotes from former President Ronald Reagan:

Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. 

Ronald Reagan 

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

Ronald Reagan 

Coming Next Month:  Weekend Wisdom of Love

Historical Weekend Wisdom Gipper Style

Man is not free unless government is limited. 

Ronald Reagan

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

Ronald Reagan

We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added. 

Ronald Reagan

Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other. 

Ronald Reagan 

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. 

Ronald Reagan
