Ronald Reagan’s 100th Birthday – The Man He Was

Ronald Reagan would turn 100 Sunday, February 6th. The celebrations and honorariums

Ronald Reagan Feb. 6, 1911 - June 5, 2004

will last throughout the year of 2011. I want to direct you to a wonderful post, of very serious intent about Ronald Reagan and the man he was. I found so many things I did not know about him. I knew that he stared down communism with fierce and unrelenting resolve, but I didn’t know that he began the battle long before he became president. I hope you will visit Reaganite Republican Resistance for insight into how this great American, Ronald Reagan, set a trend in Hollywood, of all places, to keep the wheels of capitalism grinding in the face of threats to his family and his career.

As James at Reaganite Republican says, “his often lonely fight against communism became, and was to remain for 40 years, highly personal.” As it turns out, it was personal for you and me, as well. We owe so much to this beautiful man. I am grateful for his influence on American thinking. The article also compares and contrasts some of the things we are seeing today. Please visit Reaganite Republican Resistance.

  • I just heard Sarah Palin’s speech on Fox opening the celebration of this great American. Could we ever use him now. I hope the young people of America learn and take to heart what he stood for.

    Godspeed President Reagan.

    While on active duty from 1973 to 1993, I had the distinct honor of serving under the best Commander-in-Chief of the 20th century … Ronald Wilson Reagan. My favorite quote from the Gipper:

    “The ultimate determinant in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas — a trial of spiritual resolve, the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideals to which we are dedicated.” — President Ronald W. Reagan (1911 – 2004)
