Ronald Reagan Speaks on Socialized Medicine in 1961

Try not to cry...I couldn't help it, I did.
Go here for the audio link to Reagan speaking on socialized health care back in 1961.
This man was so full of wisdom: even then.
America needs leadership like this now.

Be sure to listen all the way through....

And, while there, look over to the right side, and notice all the Reagan speeches you can watch. I especially like "A Time for Choosing" fully explaining LIBERALISM or STATISM.

He was the first President I was priveleged to be able to vote for, and how proud I was to pull the lever for him not once, but twice. I LOVE that man. He was a real man, humble, not educated at an elite school, and yet he was someone I thought was smarter than all the rest; WISDOM is what made the difference.

We have GOT to write to our Congressmen...
I have a link in the sidebar for the contact information.

President Regan was one of my absolute favorite Presidents and I, too, voted for him twice! I've always thought it a shame he became an actor first and didn't go into politics but...for such a time as this...God works in mysterious ways. He was a man of wisdom and a man of God but he didn't brag about it or talk about other Presidents. He LIVED his walk with Christ; he didn't talk it, he showed it.
You're right...we must ALL WRITE our legislators, don't call, don't sign petitions...write them individually to let them know of your concerns and to vote NO.
If it's not good enough for Obama and "our" legislators, why should we accept it!?

Oh gosh...typing too fast; didn't mean to type President Reagan's name incorrectly.
Due to bandwidth problems, cannot listen to the audio and am sorry. Would have loved to hear it.

DO NOT SEND ANY MESSAGE or petitions thru the emails to the White House or your representatives. Our Congressman said they are not paid any attention to but PAPER LETTERS are accepted & recognized.

Also, PLEASE NOTE THIS, it'll scare the living daylights out of you! ~

Hey people:
The loss of our freedoms is getting worse by the day.

I would normally discount this as conspiracy crap, but this information has been vetted by Fox News and it appears to be true.

Pass this out to everyone you know. Do NOT go to

Fox News had quite a bit of info on this on one of the programs over the weekend, also.

I love Reagan, the most wonderful President we've had. God rest his soul.

We have written our letters, signed and sealed. It gets scarier by the day, does it not?

I did see that report on Fox News and it scared the bleep out of me!
How can so many, be so blind..

Dear One,
I cannot thank you enough for posting this audio of Pres. Reagan speaks against Socialized Medicine.
I will get the word out as best I can for others to listen to this.
God Bless,

People are so stupid to think that Obama cares. All he wants is power over us... and the little freedom we have to be whittled away. I have some liberal friends at church that are pro-Obamacare. They actually think he would help them with their mentally retarded son. The fact is, her son would be put down... as would me parents and older family members. Unless you were between 15 and 55, you would be either denied coverage or, surely in the future, euthanized. If we don't get more people to wake up, we are truly doomed. I used to think Glenn Beck was a fruitcake.... turns out he was/is more like Nostradamus. What a scary world we are living in....

I am noticing more and more how our local news ( Seattle based ) lumps all who are against Obama programs and policies with Nazi's and extremist groups. THAT is very scary!The local news has also been blanketing the media with disclaimers concerning opposition to Obama's socialized health care plans as scare tactics from extremists. So, I think we know how Big Brother will be spinning things.And chillingly, it works.

I find myself getting panicky sometimes when I see the coverage on conservative Americans and the way we are considered to be extreme...I kind of think that is extreme, people just need to decide what they will be extreme about...this is our country...when are more people going to make the decision to take it back? We put these people into office- someone had to vote for them to get there...and I think we could show them that they either represent us or we will get someone who will. I know Im looking for the most down to earth real common person in Ohio, and Im also able to tell when Im being dupped.....scary living in America.

I'm with ya, chick. I've been calling my senators and congressman about this terrible thing they call "healthcare"; it is anything BUT healthcare, more like deathcare. The state of Oregon will NOT give you meds to help with cancer but will give you pills to assist with you killing yourself. An abomination in my opinion. Chicks, Washington state is voting on this one in November to approve assisted suicide!!!! I'm appalled and hope it is voted down. We cannot start killing ourselves or citizens. Horrible........
