    Next Monday, October 27 marks the 50th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s iconic “Time For Choosing” speech. It was a speech that sparked the modern Conservative Movement, ignited a fire in the hearts of conservatives, and launched Ronald Reagan’s public policy career. This week as part of a year-long “Time for Choosing: The Next Generation” initiative, Young America’s Foundation is releasing a series of videos in conjunction with the anniversary of this significant speech. The fourth video focuses on the private sector. Ronald Reagan understood the evils of communism and socialist policies. He knew by diminishing the role of the private...

    Some of the Republican faithful responded to Paul Ryan’s rousing acceptance speech for vice president last night as if it was the second coming of Ronald Reagan. And in a sense it was. Paul Ryan is the most Reaganesque political figure to reach the national stage since the Gipper himself. Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin was even seen crying during it — and this is a guy who just survived 18 months of siege warfare stoically. Indeed, Ryan’s speech made an understated bow towards Reagan’s political message with a signature passage. “The right that makes all the difference now is...

    A Time for Choosing by Ronald Reagan October 27, 1964 =================================== To a significant degree, Ronald Reagan's election to the presidency stems from this speech, given on national television on behalf of, and sponsored by, Barry Goldwater's 1964 presidential campaign. The speech remains amazingly fresh as a statement of modern American conservative philosophy four decades after it was delivered. =================================== Thank you very much. Thank you and good evening. The sponsor has been identified, but unlike most television programs, the performer hasn't been provided with a script. As a matter of fact, I have been permitted to choose my own...

    <p>The FReepers are comparing her to Reagan. I didn’t put too much credibility into it, I mean, you can expect that kind of reaction from the FReepers. But then the people on my dog training forum are comparing her to Reagan. And the people on my cooking forum are comparing her to Reagan.</p>

    A Time For ChoosingRonald Reagan - 1964 I am going to talk of controversial things. I make no apology for this. It’s time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers. James Madison said, “We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self government.” The idea that government was beholden to the people, that it had no other source of power is still the newest, most unique idea in all the long history of man’s relation to man. This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in...
