October 27, 1964: Time for

Time for Choosing (October 27, 1964)

But seriously, what are we doing to those we seek to help? In the last three years we've spent 43 dollars in the feed grain program for every dollar bushel of corn we don't grow. We're at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind in his long climb from the swamp to the stars, and it's been said if we lose that war, and in so doing lose this way of freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening. What is the proper role of government in promoting progress in America, according to Reagan? Well, in all fairness I should explain there is one part of the new program that isn't duplicated. This is the issue of this election. I recently have seen fit to follow another course. They can impose a fine without a formal hearing, let alone a trial by jury? Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth.

If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. Holiday and Special Event Hours: Christmas Eve:10 a. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand — the ultimatum. He has told them that we are retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary because by that time we will have weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. All who oppose them are indicted as warmongers.

We were told four years ago that 17 million people went to bed hungry each night. Barry Goldwater thinks we can. They were all on a diet. It would seem that someplace there must be some overhead. The latest is the Area Redevelopment Agency. You see, that one-fourth of farmingthat's regulated and controlled by the federal government.

During the hectic split-second timing of a campaign, this is a man who took time out to sit beside an old friend who was dying of cancer. You bet it can, and does! I think we're for telling our senior citizens that no one in this country should be denied medical care because of a lack of funds. Well, perhaps there is a simple answernot an easy answerbut simple: If you and I have the courage to tell our elected officials that we want our national policy based on what we know in our hearts is morally right. Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard 'round the world? During the hectic split-second timing of a campaign, this is a man who took time out to sit beside an old friend who was dying of cancer. This view taken to its extreme, Reagan argued, would extinguish the promise of liberty and self-government for Americans and the world. Contrary to popular belief, however, the speech was not given at the 1964 Republican National Convention in San Francisco, California as a nomination speech for Barry Goldwater. The Secretary of Agriculture asked for the right to seize farms through condemnation and resell them to other individuals.

Also, please take a few moments and review the for posting at Lottery Post. Now do a little arithmetic, and you'll find that if we divided the 45 billion dollars up equally among those 9 million poor families, we'd be able to give each family 4,600 dollars a year. You see, that one-fourth of farming is regulated and controlled by the federal government. Under his questioning, she revealed her husband was a laborer earning 250 dollars a month. This is the last stand on earth.

He provides nursing care for the children of mothers who work in the stores. For three decades, we've sought to solve the problems of unemployment through government planning, and the more the plans fail, the more the planners plan. Should Christ have refused the cross? This is a man who, in his own business before he entered politics, instituted a profit-sharing plan before unions had ever thought of it. Should we not allow a widow with children to work, and not lose the benefits supposedly paid for by her deceased husband? As for the peace that we would preserve, I wonder who among us would like to approach the wife or mother whose husband or son has died in South Vietnam and ask them if they think this is a peace that should be maintained indefinitely. And regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course. They were all on a diet.

The latest is the Area Redevelopment Agency. Just forty-eight words undelined and bold resonate through the ages but highlighted are also ideals valid then as well as today. And they can seize and sell his property at auction to enforce the payment of that fine. No nation in history has ever survived a tax burden that reached a third of its national income. Our Democratic opponents seem unwilling to debate these issues. I think we're for telling our senior citizens that no one in this country should be denied medical care because of a lack of funds.

But he said there should be no cause for worry because as long as they have the power to tax, they could always take away from the people whatever they needed to bail them out of trouble. She had six children, was pregnant with her seventh. I'm not suggesting Harvard is the answer to juvenile delinquency. Our natural, unalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation of government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment. But again we do some arithmetic, and we find that we're going to spend each year just on room and board for each young person we help 4,700 dollars a year. I became a conservative by watching this speech on television a half century ago in 1964 at the age of seven. Now are we so lacking in business sense that we can't put this program on a sound basis, so that people who do require those payments will find they can get them when they're duethat the cupboard isn't bare? I have spent most of my life as a Democrat.
