Observations - Ronald Reagan

Today is the 10th anniversary of Ronald Reagan's death. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

* "Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem."
* "Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."
* "The best minds are not in government. If any were, business would steal them away."
* "The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
* "Government does not solve problems. It subsidizes them."
* "My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose. Somehow we win out."
