    What a great man Reagan was and what great men and women have lived and fought for this country. This video reminds me of what we have lost as a nation – and what we have replaced it with. There is NO comparison. Men are different today – women too – they don’t feel the love and patriotism that so many did in the past and willingly gave their lives for. It makes me want to cry. Most people today don’t really care about anything patriotic – even tho they are lucky enough to live in the greatest nation ever – all they care about is airing their dirty laundry on mouthpieces like Facebook and following reality shows and watching other people air their dirty laundry on television.. Oh, that we had men the calibre of Reagan and the thousands who died for America in the past here today….

      I had the honor to meet him once. one on one. To this day I get goose bumps thinking about it. I was young, he tousled my hair and called me sonny. he shook my hand, and looked my straight in the eye. To this day, I am effected by those few moments. We need him now more than ever.

      Don’t give in, and never surrender. Not for peace or for any other reason. Reagan lives on in the hearts of those who love this land. http://www.couragetolaugh.com and click I’d Much Rather Laugh! How You Can Save America from Ridicule and Ruin. Because it is time to walk the walk that shows you mean to stay as free as your God given right.

    They know where to look. But they never will. That’s not what liberals do. Yes, I said liberals! Liberalism in not a “label”. Liberalism is an ideology which seeks to avoid the disciplines of the truth. It is a religion that opposes values that this country was founded on, and also seeks to impose its own lack of values on others.

      THANK YOU TOO!

      You know, these people even stole the label ‘liberal’ because that word’s root means freedom. The only freedom these progressive socialists (I call them) seem to want is the freedom to confiscate and spend money in a manner that suits their adgenda. Is that what they mean about liberal? Liberals used to be free-thinkers like Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and John Locke and Edmund Burke. We had to take a new word, Libertarian, to replace the one they stole. These people don’t represent bravery or liberty, they only want end result of bravery and liberty and think they can get it through social programs.

    ” We will not surrender for it now or ever” Obama here those words “WE WILL NOT SURRENDER FOR IT NOW OR EVER” you will awaken a mighty people we will take back that which you intend to rob from us our Freedom, the 2nd amendment was for times like these when every patriotic American must decide NOT TO SURRENDER NOW OR EVER. We will NOT give in to your tyranny. We will fight you in the streets, in the forests, In the hills, we will fight you in our cities, we will Drive out your Muslim friends that intend us harm. We will expose your hypocrisy, We will find all who support your agenda and bring them to Justice in the peoples courts. You commit treason against us the time is coming that we will fight back to keep what American soldiers died for in World War 2. FREEDOM. Against you and your kind of tyrants. men like Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Stalin, Saddam and many others who seek to repress a free people, may you join them in He!! for the evil you represent the seed of Satan. The murder of innocents (abortion) the betrayal of America and your party’s denial of God. I have one prayer for you that God have mercy on your soul.

      We’re locked, loaded, and awaiting the call.

      • PeaverBogart

        You and I have at least one thing in common. I’m locked and loaded too, and also waiting the call. I served two combat tours in Vietnam. I’m getting older now but I still know how to fight.

    No democrat could possibly understand this speech. We carry them on OUR shoulders. We provide the blanket of freedom that they huddle under. They spew their hate at us, they espouse their Socio-Communistic Fascism while we guard their freedoms. Without thanks, Without anything but their disgust.

    The fact is, We are better than them. We are stronger… of character, of will, of moral fiber. WE are the true Americans. WE are the ones holding the line. bearing the standard, keeping forever faithful. It is us alone who have made this country great. IN SPITE of them. under the burdens of group think, and marxist blight that has all but destroyed our education system, and has produced generations of parasites shrieking for anything they can take, and refusing to give anything.

    We stand under the weight of their ignorance, their hatred, and their desire to obtain that which they did not earn.. from those who did… under threat of imprisonment by our government. And yet we stand fast. We will not break, we will not yield, and we will not stop fighting for their freedom even though not ONE of them would do the same for us. That us who we are. WE are the true Americans. The ENTIRE WORLD owes us a debt that they could not possibly repay.

    It will be that way for all eternity. No matter how many civil wars we fight, no matter how many marxist presidents we endure. No matter how many millions we must carry in our backs.

    WE are the forever faithful. be proud.
    Semper Fi.

      I could not have said it better. You are a Brother Patriot. May God Bless you and your family.

    President Ronald Reagan is sometimes referred to as the great communicator. I would like to submit that he is and will ever be the Great Motivator. When a leader can tap into the spirit of a nation, raise the hope and confidence of individuals, all that is left to come out.. is GREATNESS. TGKR

  • craig

    THANK YOU PRESIDENT REAGAN…RIP.

  • Everett

    Beautiful, this really puts it all together, but the libertards and koolaid drinkers will never understand what has been said. They are beyond help and are a fine example that stupidy and liberalism are incurable problems that have no cure.

  • mjem

    All said without a telepromptor….

  • Malcolm Cummings

    I had the privilege to shake hands with him before he became President. He gave me an autographed signature, which I still have. Later, he ran for and became President – one of the best. Surely, the best in my lifetime! Oh, how we need another like him. But, I see no one on the horizon! Has God placed America on the shelf because of our sin? Because we are murdering milions of unborn babies? God help us. We need a revival in our land! Is it too late? We can pray and witness for the Lord. Let’s do what we can in the time we have left!

      I served under 3 presidents and so wished President Reagan was one of them. Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and then the biggest goof until Clinton and Obama-Soetoro. Nixon was good for the troops and their morale. Ford was a Michigan Graduate, need I say more? Carter was a fool. An Annapolis graduate, but showed no working knowledge of how things should be. We also, with Carter as president, a democRAT house and senate put our economy into a tailspin. Reagan was able to turn things around with his tax breaks and make it all work once again.

    Just think, this is a great man that made a career in hollywierd , but different time, different world, or so it seems, now there is not a handful of real people there, just a bunch of left wing moonbats, with more dollars than sense.

    • GinoV

      Your so right

    • Tomato Cain

      You must be talking about Soros and Buffet who are as much capitalists as parking lot chewing gum is footwear.

    • Big Dan

      Don’t forget, when Reagan was in Hollywood, we had a lot of movie stars who were also war heroes and conservative democrats. Lee Marvin, Eddie Arnold, Captain Kangaroo, Ernest Borgnine, Bob Hope, well you get the point. John Wayne never served, but was a Hawk and let his feelings be known. Today we have a very few who have their heads on right. Clint Eastwood, Kelsey Grammar, Marsha Mason, Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn and of course Chuck Norris. Have you also noticed that the only quiet ones are the conservatives and the ones who spew venom are the libs?

      • sandman

        Yea Dan, and the sad part is, most of them were of the “Greatest Generation” as the prince of liberalism tom brokaw wrote about, it is too bad they have been dropping like old Eagles who’s time has come and gone, or are the children of, like myself, who were raised with the same values and love of Country, take care Dan, and May God Bless America, and all those who believe in Her!

  • GinoV

    Please dear God bring back our great President Ronald Reagan

    • Tomato Cain

      God has left that job to us.

  • freedomringsforall

    Thanks again Mr. President
