Did you see the interview (on FOX I think) with Peter Robinson, Reagan’s speeechwriter? He said while he was writing the speech, he talked to some Berliners to get their opinions about the Wall. One woman told him tear it down. Reagan liked the line so much, he added “Gorbechev, tear down this wall.” During reviews by other departments, the line got dropped because it was deemed “too controversial.” But on the way to giving the speech, Reagan told Robinson words to this effect: the boys aren’t going to like this, but I’m putting it back in. God bless, Reagan. How we need you now!
Oops, I meant “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”
Oh how right you are.
That describes many of us right now. We cannot let the Regime get us down. We can take back the nation as long as there remains a band of righteous patriots in the nation.
Great reply. No more to say!
