October 27, 1964: A Thoughtful Address From Ronald Reagan-Reflections 50 Years Later

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

~Ronald Reagan,
40th President of the United States [1911-2004]

Fifty years ago, tonight, Ronald Reagan gave what has become one of the most iconic and important speeches in American history. The content of this speech, and the ideals represented are American ideals. Time honored truths that somehow America had wondered from, starting with FDR and his “New Deal.” By the election of 1964, America had made a huge lunge toward socialism, and the full-blow welfare state, with what President Lyndon Johnson was calling his “Great Society ,” a hell-on-earth that has destroyed the lives of tens of millions of Americans, and stands as the foundation of every evil, fascist, economy crippling program the “progressive” extremists have visited on the people, and are continuing to force on us to this day.

In 2012, on the 48th anniversary of “The Speech,” I wrote this:

Ronald Reagan had been giving variations of A Time for Choosing for some time to crowds large and small. By 1964 and the final days of the presidential elections, he had perfected his message into one of the most important and iconic speeches in American history.

Reagan wasn’t able to change enough hearts and minds to help Barry Goldwater defeat President Lyndon Johnson, but a Conservative star was born and the rest, as they say, is history.

A Time for Choosing has become an icon in the American experience. So many wonderful Reagan quotes are here. So much important commentary on America’s greatness, as well as the dangers she faces to this very day. So iconic, A Time for Choosing has come to be known simply as The Speech.

In The Speech Reagan warns his audience of the evils of socialism and liberalism, which, of course, are one in the same. Even then, socialist democrats were attempting to destroy the very fabric of American society from within and had been since the era of “The New Deal” and FDR.

Reagan warns of the dangers of a big, inefficient, overreaching government and notes how so many things the government was wanting to do could be done by the private sector better, cheaper, and more efficiently. We hear about lives destroyed by democrat socialists, and runaway government programs that wasted billions of dollars with absolutely no positive effect on mankind. Sounds all too familiar to today and what we are facing now.

If there is one sad thing about The Speech it’s that too few took Reagan’s message to heart. Change a few names, locations mentioned, and increase the amount of dollars mentioned by at least a thousand fold, and if Reagan was still here, he could give this exact speech tonight and still be spot on.

Today we see a democrat party that isn’t merely liberal, but rabidly Anti-American. A democrat party that has sunk into the depths of dangerous socialism. A democrat party that disregards the Constitution, and the Rule of Law. A democrat party whose practitioners have become vile and hateful in their ways, viciously attack those who dare disagree with their views, many of which, are completely incompatible with civilized society, and the American way of life.

Government has grown so large, spending so out of control, debts so mind numbingly high, that not only are Liberty and Freedom in danger of extinction, so is the United States itself. We have an incompetent and dangerous president, and an entire Executive Branch to match. Things must change or we are finished as a nation.

Conservatives have been revisiting The Speech for decades. It is my thought that this should be required teaching to ever school boy and girl. A student should know this speech and have a working knowledge of the concept being presented, before being allowed to graduate high school. No one should be able to get their college degree without having an advanced understanding of the concepts Reagan sets forth here.

If every man woman and child truly understood Reagan’s passion for Liberty and Freedom, America would never find itself staring into the abyss as it is today. All men and women would truly be free, and the powerful American spirit would make the United States truly that Shining City on a Hill that Reagan saw, when he saw America.

There is hope in our young. While dining at my favorite establishment, a steak house here in town [Fire and Ice] and engaged with one of the servers in conversation, I was pleased to learn this young woman, only a few years out of high school, not only knew The Speech but understood it. Though she grew up in liberal California, she was blessed with a Conservative history teacher who thought it important enough to include The Speech in his curriculum. God bless that teacher!

Ronald Reagan was a gift to America. There are few men in our history who have had such a positive impact on so many people. He created generations of Conservatives. Though Conservatism wasn’t something Reagan invented, he was the living, breathing embodiment of it. His ability to inspire others is just as important as his message. This is why, when Americans are polled, Ronald Reagan is consistently at or near the top of the list of those considered our greatest presidents in history.

I stand by the idea that this speech should be required viewing for every American, and no student should be able to graduate high school without a solid understanding of the principles set forth within. One should have to take an extended course in college, in order to graduate there, as well!

One thing has changed for me though. Anytime I remember Ronald Reagan, I feel optimistic. Ronald Reagan was all about optimism. He always saw America as a “Shining City on a Hill,” the world’s last best hope for Freedom. When he ran for re-election in 1984, the ads proclaimed it was “Morning in America” and that was fact! Today it’s more like mourning in America. I don’t feel optimistic.

After all of this time, after being able to reference Reagan’s greatness, his record, and of course, this speech, for all of these years, I have to ask, have we, as a nation, failed? Seriously, other than a few names, and of course greatly higher amounts of money today, than Reagan spoke of, if he were alive today, he could give the exact same speech today, and he’d be talking about the exact same dangers we face, and the evil doers who are pushing it on us all.

We have over 100 years worth of empirical evidence that liberalism is a failure. That everything these monsters have brought done has not only failed spectacularly, but has destroyed opportunities and destroyed lives. Liberalism is the greatest evil mankind has ever faced, and what these liberal “progressives” have done to the United states and her people is living proof!

Progressives” love to complicate things. They love to divide and stir up hate. It’s their only path to success. Conservatism is rather simple. All it takes is common sense, something sorely lacking among politicos, as well as many voters, these days. The corrupt bastards in Washington, and the fools who vote for them, have been winning for some time now, and every win for them is a loss for the United States and her people. As government grows, Liberty and Freedom slowly dies. Too many, it seems, have forgotten this.

Anything that endures 50 years as an icon is worthy of celebration. That it is from one of our greatest presidents in history, makes this speech even more worthy of celebration. The fact is, those hell-bent on destroying America are counting on you to forget this great speech, and the ideals expressed within. Even sadder, it seems far too many HAVE forgotten. It seems the day Reagan feared the most is rapidly coming, the day that Freedom in America dies, because we forgot to teach it to the younger generations. We allowed the enemies of Liberty and Freedom to preach THEIR message of Big Government and surrendering to the state, instead.

On a day I usually reflect on the greatness that is America, and enjoy a fantastic speech from a truly great man, I find myself troubled and frankly, a little afraid. Afraid that the lights on Hill have gone out. That we, as a nation have failed. Failed to head Reagan’s warnings. Failed to protect Liberty and Freedom.

As you watch the speech, and read the transcript, I hope will find the renewed inspiration to fight for America. Fight for the Common Sense Conservatism that made America great. Fight against those who are destroying the American way of life, and enslaving an entire nation.

As Ronald Reagan said, it is a time for choosing. You must choose what sort of nation you want. You must choose whether you will fight for America, or submit to those who are destroying us all.

With that …. here’s a thoughtful address from Ronald Reagan:


A TIME FOR CHOOSING (The Speech – October 27, 1964)

Thank you. 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 words and discuss my own ideas regarding the choice that we face in the next few weeks.

I have spent most of my life as a Democrat. I recently have seen fit to follow another course. I believe that the issues confronting us cross party lines. Now, one side in this campaign has been telling us that the issues of this election are the maintenance of peace and prosperity. The line has been used, “We’ve never had it so good.

But I have an uncomfortable feeling that this prosperity isn’t something on which we can base our hopes for the future. No nation in history has ever survived a tax burden that reached a third of its national income. Today, 37 cents out of every dollar earned in this country is the tax collector’s share, and yet our government continues to spend 17 million dollars a day more than the government takes in. We haven’t balanced our budget 28 out of the last 34 years. We’ve raised our debt limit three times in the last twelve months, and now our national debt is one and a half times bigger than all the combined debts of all the nations of the world. We have 15 billion dollars in gold in our treasury; we don’t own an ounce. Foreign dollar claims are 27.3 billion dollars. And we’ve just had announced that the dollar of 1939 will now purchase 45 cents in its total value.

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. Do they mean peace, or do they mean we just want to be left in peace? There can be no real peace while one American is dying some place in the world for the rest of us. 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. Well I think it’s time we ask ourselves if we still know the freedoms that were intended for us by the Founding Fathers.

Not too long ago, two friends of mine were talking to a Cuban refugee, a businessman who had escaped from Castro, and in the midst of his story one of my friends turned to the other and said, “We don’t know how lucky we are.” And the Cuban stopped and said, “How lucky you are? I had someplace to escape to.” And in that sentence he told us the entire story. If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.

And this idea that government is beholden to the people, that it has no other source of power except the sovereign people, is still the newest and the 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 our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.

You and I are told increasingly we have to choose between a left or right. Well I’d like to suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There’s only an up or down—[up] man’s old—old-aged dream, the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. And regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course.

In this vote-harvesting time, they use terms like the “Great Society,” or as we were told a few days ago by the President, we must accept a greater government activity in the affairs of the people. But they’ve been a little more explicit in the past and among themselves; and all of the things I now will quote have appeared in print. These are not Republican accusations. For example, they have voices that say, “The cold war will end through our acceptance of a not undemocratic socialism.” Another voice says, “The profit motive has become outmoded. It must be replaced by the incentives of the welfare state.” Or, “Our traditional system of individual freedom is incapable of solving the complex problems of the 20th century.” Senator Fullbright has said at Stanford University that the Constitution is outmoded. He referred to the President as “our moral teacher and our leader,” and he says he is “hobbled in his task by the restrictions of power imposed on him by this antiquated document.” He must “be freed,” so that he “can do for us” what he knows “is best.” And Senator Clark of Pennsylvania, another articulate spokesman, defines liberalism as “meeting the material needs of the masses through the full power of centralized government.”

Well, I, for one, resent it when a representative of the people refers to you and me, the free men and women of this country, as “the masses.” This is a term we haven’t applied to ourselves in America. But beyond that, “the full power of centralized government“—this was the very thing the Founding Fathers sought to minimize. They knew that governments don’t control things. A government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they know when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. They also knew, those Founding Fathers, that outside of its legitimate functions, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector of the economy.

Now, we have no better example of this than government’s involvement in the farm economy over the last 30 years. Since 1955, the cost of this program has nearly doubled. One-fourth of farming in America is responsible for 85 percent of the farm surplus. Three-fourths of farming is out on the free market and has known a 21 percent increase in the per capita consumption of all its produce. You see, that one-fourth of farming—that’s regulated and controlled by the federal government. 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.

Senator Humphrey last week charged that Barry Goldwater, as President, would seek to eliminate farmers. He should do his homework a little better, because he’ll find out that we’ve had a decline of 5 million in the farm population under these government programs. He’ll also find that the Democratic administration has sought to get from Congress [an] extension of the farm program to include that three-fourths that is now free. He’ll find that they’ve also asked for the right to imprison farmers who wouldn’t keep books as prescribed by the federal government. The Secretary of Agriculture asked for the right to seize farms through condemnation and resell them to other individuals. And contained in that same program was a provision that would have allowed the federal government to remove 2 million farmers from the soil.

At the same time, there’s been an increase in the Department of Agriculture employees. There’s now one for every 30 farms in the United States, and still they can’t tell us how 66 shiploads of grain headed for Austria disappeared without a trace and Billie Sol Estes never left shore.

Every responsible farmer and farm organization has repeatedly asked the government to free the farm economy, but how—who are farmers to know what’s best for them? The wheat farmers voted against a wheat program. The government passed it anyway. Now the price of bread goes up; the price of wheat to the farmer goes down.

Meanwhile, back in the city, under urban renewal the assault on freedom carries on. Private property rights [are] so diluted that public interest is almost anything a few government planners decide it should be. In a program that takes from the needy and gives to the greedy, we see such spectacles as in Cleveland, Ohio, a million-and-a-half-dollar building completed only three years ago must be destroyed to make way for what government officials call a “more compatible use of the land.” The President tells us he’s now going to start building public housing units in the thousands, where heretofore we’ve only built them in the hundreds. But FHA [Federal Housing Authority] and the Veterans Administration tell us they have 120,000 housing units they’ve taken back through mortgage foreclosure. 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. The latest is the Area Redevelopment Agency.

They’ve just declared Rice County, Kansas, a depressed area. Rice County, Kansas, has two hundred oil wells, and the 14,000 people there have over 30 million dollars on deposit in personal savings in their banks. And when the government tells you you’re depressed, lie down and be depressed.

We have so many people who can’t see a fat man standing beside a thin one without coming to the conclusion the fat man got that way by taking advantage of the thin one. So they’re going to solve all the problems of human misery through government and government planning. Well, now, if government planning and welfare had the answer—and they’ve had almost 30 years of it—shouldn’t we expect government to read the score to us once in a while? Shouldn’t they be telling us about the decline each year in the number of people needing help? The reduction in the need for public housing?

But the reverse is true. Each year the need grows greater; the program grows greater. We were told four years ago that 17 million people went to bed hungry each night. Well that was probably true. They were all on a diet. But now we’re told that 9.3 million families in this country are poverty-stricken on the basis of earning less than 3,000 dollars a year. Welfare spending [is] 10 times greater than in the dark depths of the Depression. We’re spending 45 billion dollars on welfare. 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. And this added to their present income should eliminate poverty. Direct aid to the poor, however, is only running only about 600 dollars per family. It would seem that someplace there must be some overhead.

Now—so now we declare “war on poverty,” or “You, too, can be a Bobby Baker.” Now do they honestly expect us to believe that if we add 1 billion dollars to the 45 billion we’re spending, one more program to the 30-odd we have—and remember, this new program doesn’t replace any, it just duplicates existing programs—do they believe that poverty is suddenly going to disappear by magic? Well, in all fairness I should explain there is one part of the new program that isn’t duplicated. This is the youth feature. We’re now going to solve the dropout problem, juvenile delinquency, by reinstituting something like the old CCC camps [Civilian Conservation Corps], and we’re going to put our young people in these camps. 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. We can send them to Harvard for 2,700! Course, don’t get me wrong. I’m not suggesting Harvard is the answer to juvenile delinquency.

But seriously, what are we doing to those we seek to help? Not too long ago, a judge called me here in Los Angeles. He told me of a young woman who’d come before him for a divorce. She had six children, was pregnant with her seventh. Under his questioning, she revealed her husband was a laborer earning 250 dollars a month. She wanted a divorce to get an 80 dollar raise. She’s eligible for 330 dollars a month in the Aid to Dependent Children Program. She got the idea from two women in her neighborhood who’d already done that very thing.

Yet anytime you and I question the schemes of the do-gooders, we’re denounced as being against their humanitarian goals. They say we’re always “against” things—we’re never “for” anything.

Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.

Now—we’re for a provision that destitution should not follow unemployment by reason of old age, and to that end we’ve accepted Social Security as a step toward meeting the problem.

But we’re against those entrusted with this program when they practice deception regarding its fiscal shortcomings, when they charge that any criticism of the program means that we want to end payments to those people who depend on them for a livelihood. They’ve called it “insurance” to us in a hundred million pieces of literature. But then they appeared before the Supreme Court and they testified it was a welfare program. They only use the term “insurance” to sell it to the people. And they said Social Security dues are a tax for the general use of the government, and the government has used that tax. There is no fund, because Robert Byers, the actuarial head, appeared before a congressional committee and admitted that Social Security as of this moment is 298 billion dollars in the hole. 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. And they’re doing just that.

A young man, 21 years of age, working at an average salary—his Social Security contribution would, in the open market, buy him an insurance policy that would guarantee 220 dollars a month at age 65. The government promises 127. He could live it up until he’s 31 and then take out a policy that would pay more than Social Security. 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 due—that the cupboard isn’t bare?

Barry Goldwater thinks we can.

At the same time, can’t we introduce voluntary features that would permit a citizen who can do better on his own to be excused upon presentation of evidence that he had made provision for the non-earning years? Should we not allow a widow with children to work, and not lose the benefits supposedly paid for by her deceased husband? Shouldn’t you and I be allowed to declare who our beneficiaries will be under this program, which we cannot do? 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 I think we’re against forcing all citizens, regardless of need, into a compulsory government program, especially when we have such examples, as was announced last week, when France admitted that their Medicare program is now bankrupt. They’ve come to the end of the road.

In addition, was Barry Goldwater so irresponsible when he suggested that our government give up its program of deliberate, planned inflation, so that when you do get your Social Security pension, a dollar will buy a dollar’s worth, and not 45 cents worth?

I think we’re for an international organization, where the nations of the world can seek peace. But I think we’re against subordinating American interests to an organization that has become so structurally unsound that today you can muster a two-thirds vote on the floor of the General Assembly among nations that represent less than 10 percent of the world’s population. I think we’re against the hypocrisy of assailing our allies because here and there they cling to a colony, while we engage in a conspiracy of silence and never open our mouths about the millions of people enslaved in the Soviet colonies in the satellite nations.

I think we’re for aiding our allies by sharing of our material blessings with those nations which share in our fundamental beliefs, but we’re against doling out money government to government, creating bureaucracy, if not socialism, all over the world. We set out to help 19 countries. We’re helping 107. We’ve spent 146 billion dollars. With that money, we bought a 2 million dollar yacht for Haile Selassie. We bought dress suits for Greek undertakers, extra wives for Kenya[n] government officials. We bought a thousand TV sets for a place where they have no electricity. In the last six years, 52 nations have bought 7 billion dollars worth of our gold, and all 52 are receiving foreign aid from this country.

No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. So governments’ programs, once launched, never disappear.

Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.

Federal employees—federal employees number two and a half million; and federal, state, and local, one out of six of the nation’s work force employed by government. These proliferating bureaus with their thousands of regulations have cost us many of our constitutional safeguards. How many of us realize that today federal agents can invade a man’s property without a warrant? They can impose a fine without a formal hearing, let alone a trial by jury? And they can seize and sell his property at auction to enforce the payment of that fine. In Chico County, Arkansas, James Wier over-planted his rice allotment. The government obtained a 17,000 dollar judgment. And a U.S. marshal sold his 960-acre farm at auction. The government said it was necessary as a warning to others to make the system work.

Last February 19th at the University of Minnesota, Norman Thomas, six-times candidate for President on the Socialist Party ticket, said, “If Barry Goldwater became President, he would stop the advance of socialism in the United States.” I think that’s exactly what he will do.

But as a former Democrat, I can tell you Norman Thomas isn’t the only man who has drawn this parallel to socialism with the present administration, because back in 1936, Mr. Democrat himself, Al Smith, the great American, came before the American people and charged that the leadership of his Party was taking the Party of Jefferson, Jackson, and Cleveland down the road under the banners of Marx, Lenin, and Stalin. And he walked away from his Party, and he never returned til the day he died—because to this day, the leadership of that Party has been taking that Party, that honorable Party, down the road in the image of the labor Socialist Party of England.

Now it doesn’t require expropriation or confiscation of private property or business to impose socialism on a people. What does it mean whether you hold the deed to the—or the title to your business or property if the government holds the power of life and death over that business or property? And such machinery already exists. The government can find some charge to bring against any concern it chooses to prosecute. Every businessman has his own tale of harassment. Somewhere a perversion has taken place. 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.

Our Democratic opponents seem unwilling to debate these issues. They want to make you and I believe that this is a contest between two men—that we’re to choose just between two personalities.

Well what of this man that they would destroy—and in destroying, they would destroy that which he represents, the ideas that you and I hold dear? Is he the brash and shallow and trigger-happy man they say he is? Well I’ve been privileged to know him “when.” I knew him long before he ever dreamed of trying for high office, and I can tell you personally I’ve never known a man in my life I believed so incapable of doing a dishonest or dishonorable thing.

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. He put in health and medical insurance for all his employees. He took 50 percent of the profits before taxes and set up a retirement program, a pension plan for all his employees. He sent monthly checks for life to an employee who was ill and couldn’t work. He provides nursing care for the children of mothers who work in the stores. When Mexico was ravaged by the floods in the Rio Grande, he climbed in his airplane and flew medicine and supplies down there.

An ex-GI told me how he met him. It was the week before Christmas during the Korean War, and he was at the Los Angeles airport trying to get a ride home to Arizona for Christmas. And he said that [there were] a lot of servicemen there and no seats available on the planes. And then a voice came over the loudspeaker and said, “Any men in uniform wanting a ride to Arizona, go to runway such-and-such,” and they went down there, and there was a fellow named Barry Goldwater sitting in his plane. Every day in those weeks before Christmas, all day long, he’d load up the plane, fly it to Arizona, fly them to their homes, fly back over to get another load.

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. His campaign managers were understandably impatient, but he said, “There aren’t many left who care what happens to her. I’d like her to know I care.” This is a man who said to his 19-year-old son, “There is no foundation like the rock of honesty and fairness, and when you begin to build your life on that rock, with the cement of the faith in God that you have, then you have a real start.” This is not a man who could carelessly send other people’s sons to war. And that is the issue of this campaign that makes all the other problems I’ve discussed academic, unless we realize we’re in a war that must be won.

Those who would trade our freedom for the soup kitchen of the welfare state have told us they have a utopian solution of peace without victory. They call their policy “accommodation.” And they say if we’ll only avoid any direct confrontation with the enemy, he’ll forget his evil ways and learn to love us. All who oppose them are indicted as warmongers. They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. Well, perhaps there is a simple answer—not an easy answer—but 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.

We cannot buy our security, our freedom from the threat of the bomb by committing an immorality so great as saying to a billion human beings now enslaved behind the Iron Curtain, “Give up your dreams of freedom because to save our own skins, we’re willing to make a deal with your slave masters.” Alexander Hamilton said, “A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one.” Now let’s set the record straight. There’s no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there’s only one guaranteed way you can have peace—and you can have it in the next second—surrender.

Admittedly, there’s a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face—that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand—the ultimatum. And what then—when Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has told them that we’re retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary, because by that time we will have been weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. He believes this because from our side he’s heard voices pleading for “peace at any price” or “better Red than dead,” or as one commentator put it, he’d rather “live on his knees than die on his feet.” And therein lies the road to war, because those voices don’t speak for the rest of us.

You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin—just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all.

You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.” And this—this is the meaning in the phrase of Barry Goldwater’s “peace through strength.” Winston Churchill said, “The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we’re spirits—not animals.” And he said, “There’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.

We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.

We will keep in mind and remember that Barry Goldwater has faith in us. He has faith that you and I have the ability and the dignity and the right to make our own decisions and determine our own destiny.

Thank you very much.

Palin: Stopping ISIS (Spa subtitles)

By Isabel Matos

Sarah Palin along with Allen West restore sanity to the discussion of foreign policy, namely the war against Radical Islam.  There are others who have spoken out on the issue of ISIS and the president’s lack of leadership as commander in chief, but I will highlight Governor Palin’s approach which is presidential, but coming in part from the viewpoint of a military mom.  I added sub-titles in Spanish to the original clip from the Sarah Palin Channel: “Stopping ISIS” .

All of these voice-overs and clips in Spanish or bilingual are still in an exploratory phase. None of it has been approved by anyone from TAPP or SPC. I am simply doing it is part of a continuation of my effort to get the message out to Ronald Reagan Republicans who have be ignored by our leaders locally. Trust me, it is not a small number.  (I am trying to reach some now but it is not easy when your community leaders have been corrupted by the GOP establishment machine which has become an integral part of the local media that does NOT report on Obama or our movement either.  It does NOT represent public opinion, though, or the lack of interest in someone as politically dynamic as Sarah Palin.)

Yesterday a reader come by (a concerned troll, most likely) to say Sarah Palin should drop the idea of running for president and run for Senate instead. Part of the reply was for him/her to check out the Sarah Palin Channel to see for him/herself how Sarah exudes executive qualities in matters big and small.

Sarah Palin’s channel is a very unique experience.  I can’t recommend it enough.  We always complain about our leaders being inaccessible to us, and here we have online direct communication made available for an incredibly reasonable price and no penalty for canceling: SARAHPALINCHANNEL.com.

Sarah Palin: It is Time to IMPEACH (In Spanish and English)

impeach wave of children

By Isabel Matos

Updated September 4th, 2014. Impeachment has not received much attention lately, the story seems to have died out just as the media and our representatives would like it to. We can keep the pressure on!  Illegality is unacceptable. The President and Congress whose job it is to keep us safe should protect us by not ignoring the Constitution.  A clip in English has been added to the one below in Spanish:

Please SHARE SHARE SHARE the clips or this article for the momentum to continue.

These are my transcribed notes.

Well. Enough Is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis for me is the last straw. It is like a battered wife. No mas. Obama knows without borders there is no nation. Opening our borders has been deliberate. This is the fundamental transformation of America. It is the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history.

He’s given taxpayers change. Maybe that’s what he meant by hope and change.. False hope. Taxpayer’s change. He’s given these to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. It’s because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty that an untold number of illegals will kick off their shoes and come on in. These illegals will be competing for our sparse number of jobs and limited public services. There is no end in sight as our president prioritizes parties over doing the job that he was hired by voters to do. It goes without saying it is his job that to secure our borders .

It is his job.. The federal government is trillion dollars in debt. Many cities are on the verge of insolvency, our overrun health care system, police forces and social services, our schools and our unsustainable generous welfare state programs – they’re already stretched to the max. We average Americans.. we know that. So why has this issue been allowed to be turned upside down with our “leader” creating such unsafe conditions while at the same time obstructing any economic recovery by creating more dependents than producers?

His friendly wealthy bipartisan elite who want cheap foreign labor can afford for themselves the best security money can buy in their own exclusive gated communities. They don’t care that their friend Obama has tapped us out. We do care because we’re the ones getting screwed as we’re forced to follow all our government’s rules whole others are not required to do so.

The average American worker native born and wonderful legal immigrants from all backgrounds, races and political parties who built this country. Many now feel like strangers in their own land. It’s the American worker who is forced to deal with Obama’s latest crisis with their hard earned tax dollars.

While middle class wages decrease, sustainable jobs get more scarce and communities become unrecognizable and bankrupted due to Obama’s flood of illegal immigration.

Who is looking out for the American worker? Who has their back? Who’s fighting for them. We should!

President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness including his own… That’s the foundational problem here. It is not gonna get any better, friends. In fact, irreparable harm can and I predict will be done in this lame duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and I predict, mark my words, he will next mend the court system with appointments that just will forever change the way the constitution’s role in protecting our rights. It’s time to impeach.

On behalf of the American worker and the legal immigrants of all backgrounds we should be vehemently opposed to any politician, any candidate on the left or on the right who hesitates in voting for articles of impeachment . There are at least 25 impeachable offenses I have seen. These are not made up scandals. These are impeachable offenses. If after all of this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.

To those in Congress.. GOP’ers listen. Those who proclaim and acknowledge and recognize our president’s actions are lawless, I hope you will not ignore the constitution by not using the tools it empowered you with – the articles of impeachment – to stop his lawlessness. If you do then you’re not doing your job.

We hired you to protect the constitution.  We do not have to support what is going on if you do not do your job. Government is of by and for the people. America, we get the government we want. We must come together – United – to tell the President: Mr. President,  you have not done your job to protect the Constitution.

We are in trouble and things are only going to get worse until we send this message:

It is time to I.m.p.e.a.c.h.

Sarah Palin: From Badge of Military Merit to Purple Heart (In Spanish)

Purple Heart

By Isabel Matos

This was an incredible clip by Sarah Palin, and it was awesome to do because it was specially addressed to legal immigrants who make America an exceptional nation. She tells the story of one soldier, among hundreds of thousands, who gave his full and last measure of devotion for his adopted country. It is a real tribute to those who sacrifice for this country who happen to be from different origins.  Thank you, Sarah.

Sarah en Domingo~Sundays with Sarah

ice bucket challenge

By Isabel Matos

Welcome to a new segment I am looking to work on: Sundays with Sarah (in Spanish).  As you may know, I have been experimenting with doing voice-overs in Spanish of six clips so far 1 2 3 4 5 6 that Sarah Palin has been presenting on her new Digital-Television Channel online:

SarahPalinChannel.com

Let’s consider this the start of a journey whose destination is unknown. Let’s see if along the way we can confirm who is or isn’t reporting news fairly. Let’s find written publications and other media outlets and rebut their misleading information with facts in their language. Let’s dispel the tired myths that so many in this community have tirelessly and aggressively debunked over the years since 2008 and expose the places where they pervade. It’s a tall order and I am a dreamer, but…

Let’s see if in this journey we can find legal citizens who already know English but who would connect with Sarah’s message in Spanish because it is the language spoken at home and the culture they identify with first.

Let’s see if we can find bilingual citizens who know there is a status quo they are unhappy with. I do not have them at my disposal, but wouldn’t it be great to have statistics on how many Republicans who watch Spanish television (not radio) lean Republican?  The filter of Spanish speaking media outlets is just as if not more candy-coated and liberal activist than that of the Mainstream Media. It has gone unchallenged.

In this expedition, let’s see if we can lend support or collaborate with the handful of Spanish radio programs that get it (the establishment problem). But how? We are not networking on a daily basis. Let’s see if we can raise  awareness of it and remind folks that the person who ran as Vice President in 2008 put that topic on the map before anyone else did. Let’s inform voters that she is being ignored and/or misrepresented to millions of viewers every day that it is unfair.  This is a massive pursuit.

Let’s do more homework from now on. I hardly watch television but when I do, it’s not in Spanish. Most of the news which is supposed to be political in Spanish intrigues me but it is mostly on Latin America. Each journalist has his or her own niche. When it does cover American politics, it is not what we would like to see. Just like in American news.

It would be interesting to jot down how many times (if) any of Obama’s scandals get mentioned in one week, or whether anything Sarah Palin does that is newsworthy is reported.  When Rino consultants we have mentioned here say she does not appeal to Hispanics, they are in part telling a truth. She has not been pandering like they have, so her message has either been omitted or dismissed altogether. Let’s change that soon.

There are many Hispanic voters who liked Sarah in 2008. They just can’t “put their finger on” why they don’t like her now. They repeat the tired memes we’ve heard so many times about her and they do not like Obama, yet they voted for him in 2012.  Makes you scratch your head.

Sarah Palin delivers a message in such an effective way that she could easily reach many of them again, even millions.  Let’s see if and when her message is delivered in Spanish, 100% of the content would be grasped as opposed to just 1/2 or 1/3 where important content might get lost.

Many bilinguals who speak Spanish at home are legal immigrants and are Ronald Reagan Republicans but watch Spanish news because it is their maternal culture.  It is safe to say they don’t know what is happening inside our party. It is also safe to say that many have been ignored by the Bush’s Progressive Republican Machine. That GOPe factory has cloned more than one community leader who has regurgitated Jeb Bush’s Immigration Reform talking points on more than one occasion, each one bolder in their attempt to push “DOA-mnesty” down our throats. It is only conjecture, but I am sure each one has something to gain from this as promised by the leaders they dare not challenge. In their efforts to appeal to illegals, the party has failed to convey 1. Ronald Reagan’s message of Republican Conservatism and 2. America’s Exceptionalism based on legal, not illegal immigration which are elusively committed to.

It is time to push back and say No Mas (like Sarah did when calling for Obama’s impeachment): No Mas to the GOPe’s abuse of power and corruption.  No Mas to the liberal activist Spanish media lies. No Mas to rewarding illegality by our president and our Republican fools.

Back to the Sarah Palin segment each Sunday (as testing)… I have made six clips in Spanish already 1 2 3 4 5 6 . The response has been overwhelmingly positive: It should be done! The Elizabeth Warren clip has received over 475 views which I’m happy with, but contrast that number to the tens of thousands of views the negative clips got below.

It is no secret that Conservatives still don’t have the edge on fast and vast communication. For whatever reason, our message does not get out more forcefully. The propaganda does. We are doing better, but if you check, most views on clips about Sarah seem to come from the haters.

Here’s a great example. The Fast Food comment was one of her greatest moments in the Elizabeth Warren clip where she referred to the liberal hypocrisy of fighting for the little guy working at Fast Food places for owners they consider evil and in an industry where the food is not vegan:

Sarah Palin Takes Ice Bucket Challenge

 

ice bucket challenge

By Isabel Matos

Sarah Palin looked absolutely stunning radiant during this challenge which is a can’t-miss. Ha! See what she did and wrote on her timeline today:

I accept Wasilla Arctic Cat’s ‪#‎icebucketchallenge‬ to ‪#‎strikeoutALS‬ and will donate to the Pete Frates #3 Fund. Watch my video to see whom I challenge. Hat tip to actor Patrick Stewart for reminding everyone with his video that the donation is the most important part of the #icebucketchallenge, not the frivolous water-tossing theatrics that those of us who are more thoughtfully serious choose to forgo.

Find out more about ‪#‎ALS‬ and learn the story behind the #icebucketchallenge here:http://is.gd/EchG4H and here: http://petefrates.com/

#Ferguson: Facts Don’t Matter Anymore

Originally posted on askmarion:

my-community-gets-it-ferguson

By: Brent Parrish  –  The Right Planet

Facts and details are starting to leak out concerning the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri—albeit slowly. But facts don’t seem to matter anymore in our idiocracy, i.e. mobocracy. If they did, I doubt Ferguson would be in flames right now. But I digress.

Earlier this week, I was listening to a caller on the Dana Loesch radio show who allegedly had spoken with the spouse of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson—the officer who shot Michael Brown. The caller claimed Michael Brown became involved in an altercation with Officer Darren Wilson, and even tried to take his gun—which allegedly went off during the struggle. The caller also stated Brown bum-rushed the police officer.

Additionally, an audio of some alleged eyewitnesses to the lethal shooting of Michael Brown has recently come out and seems to corroborate the details provided by…

I Have NO Words.. LaRaza Praises Representatives Who Stood With Dreamers and Two of Them Are Mine!


paul ryanla raza praise

By Isabel Matos

Update April 23 2:21 pm. It is no secret. I am livid. I couldn’t help but be alarmed by the fact that my representatives are supposed to be anti-communist and yet, are pushing Amnesty. They are calling it Immigration Reform as you will see by linking to Tony Lee’s article to what Rep. Ros-Lehtinen said to Jose Diaz-Balart. You would think THEY (not me) would have access to simple information that can be found online. That is in part what this is about. Anyone can do a little homework. They could and should know this but they ignore it.

I am not here to make a dissertation on Communist Infiltration. I am here to make a statement about the ABUSE by the GOPe using my representatives to push their agenda which is a COMMUNIST PARTY USA agenda. I want to make sure that it is clear, too, that special interests wrote S.744 last year. I hope journalists with more resources look into this in more depth: the names of the (specific) companies and/or organizations that have been behind these bills because they are most likely writing what our representatives are so busy pushing.  Thank you for reading and viewing.  The support is much appreciated.

I am truly at a loss for words. I can’t express how low the GOPe has stooped or how utterly embarrassed and saddened I am by this latest, most stunning development regarding amnesty. It hits so close to home that it defies all logic for me. For two anti-communist representatives to be sharing goals with LaRaza in the push for amnesty shows just how much the situation has deteriorated and how out of control the establishment is in using our community leaders to push this idiotic agenda, how out of touch and untouchable our representatives have become, and how they’ve kept this dirty secret from voters. It has gone far enough. They’ve been used and pampered to no end, to help the GOPe.

I hope you view the clip from last year where I appealed to my representatives to not support amnesty. I hope you know I’ve done all I could to stop them. I cannot stand by and watch any longer, but I don’t know what else can effect change at this point.  It’s time to expose their increasingly traitorous actions to this country by pushing amnesty, and for our cause for freedom which is considered sacred. Never in a million years would I have imagined this would happen.

Pushing Amnesty for Republicans is a delusional goal. It is ill-advised (which makes you wonder where are they getting their information from). It helps the left. This latest is a mockery of the dreams of many legal immigrants who they are supposed to represent.  Many came to this country to escape big government, ironically the same one they are helping to create, wittingly or not.

Their daily focus is to pander to the special needs of illegals, that is how out of touch they are. And as their status in the party grows, they forget why they entered public service in the first place. I have described Rhinos with an H before and the two mentioned below may be turning into political animals themselves. They are leaving their humanity behind because they are abandoning their principles. Their live for their next perk, committee position or television appearance. (Now can you understand why I HATE THE GOPe?! It has taken good people and corrupted them.) So they’re living the high life but it’s an illusion because they have become like beasts reducing themselves to exist solely for their next “meal”. They don’t care about morals or principles.

Party on! “Que Viva la Pepa!”

Who cares about the folks? It’s time to mingle with our enemies. How base and undignified. It has gone on long enough. It doesn’t matter if any of you are losing your souls in the process anymore. This  exceptional country matters more. In the end my words were just physical disgust turned inside out spilled on a page.

He’s been working hard. Awww..

gang of 7 a

In a Breitbart Article on August 11th, Tony Lee reported:

One of the 11 House Republicans La Raza praised for not voting to end President Barack Obama’s temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrants revealed that Rep. Paul Ryan has been working “every day” behind the scenes on an amnesty bill.

In a Friday appearance on MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) predicted that Congress is “going to be passing an immigration bill” in the future, “thanks to your brother, Mario Diaz-Balart.”

“Mario and Paul Ryan and good leaders are working every day toward that, and we hope that it will happen,” she said.

Ros-Lehtinen and other members of the GOP earned La Raza’s praise for voting against the border bill that would have denied Obama the right to use federal funds to implement temporary amnesty.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), whom Ros-Lehtinen referenced, was reportedly “ready to announce to House leaders that a majority of House Republicans supported his immigration reform bill,” and secured “soft commitments from at least 120 Republicans.” Ryan was reportedly working with Diaz-Balart to get support for his bill, which would have allowed Republicans to bring it to the floor and then vote against it, enabling it to pass with Democrat support.

After House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was ousted because of his support for amnesty, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told President Obama that he would not bring up an immigration bill in the House this year. Though Boehner said he wanted to get an amnesty bill through in the next Congress, Diaz-Balart asked House leaders to give his bill one more chance this year before being denied.

“I’m seriously disappointed,” Diaz-Balart said then. “We have a historic opportunity to fix a system everyone knows is broken. We’re squandering that opportunity. The bottom line is we have a bill that is ready to go. We had bipartisan support. And yet I’ve been told we’re not going to move forward this year.”  END OF ARTICLE.

I had been keeping these pictures handy for a while and it’s time to start taking the gloves off and exposing what has been going on for years.

Open Letter to Mr. Erick Erickson

Dear Erick Erickson:

I don’t know you that well. I only read an article from time to time but what kind of a poor excuse for a patriot are you? First the injury (voter fraud and attacks on McDaniel) then the insult (they can’t speak up).  Your silencing anyone from participating in an invite to a question and answer speaks volumes.  Thanks a lot.

I am dismayed at your site’s refusal to allow concerned Americans who happen to be from Mississippi and who are very upset at the obvious voter fraud and race baiting that has gone on, has gone unpunished by the RNC. On the contrary, it is being completely ignored. It is not only a sign of things that have happened before (Chairman Priebus dismisses votes from Ron Paul delegates at the 2012 RNC Convention), but of a sign of things to come you may not know about, because you were not a part of that particular place in history like I was, so consider this a post which took 55 years to write.  Wise up there, Mr. Erickson!

I wasn’t born last night, but I wrote this on his Facebook timeline last night:

Republican National Committee started a Q&A.  August 9 at 2:27 pm · Chairman Reince Priebus is at the RedState Gathering & ready to take your questions for the next 30 minutes:

questions and answersLet me tell you something, Mr. Priebus.. Cuba had a revolution because a corrupt RINO (yes, a Republican), justified an opportunistic, charismatic and evil revolutionary to take his place. If you continue with the corruption, allowing for voter fraud, amnesty, hating women, children and using blacks as tokens for your campaigning, you will either starve the party to death or invite a very nasty consequence for all. I don’t even want to think of it. Sometimes there are things that are more important than money, power or fame. That is human decency, honor and a respect for the people of a nation who have begged you to listen. I don’t know how you sleep at night betraying not just us, but this wonderful country, but you will not rob ME of mine. Shame on you for taking one red cent from anyone to push the LEFT’s agenda. I see why you’ve been hired-anyone who can keep a straight face with the emails and earfuls you must be getting… is beyond hopeless. For shame!  ~ Isabel

If you need more information about the history of the take-over, I will be happy to provide it, but it is best summarized in just a few lines for a lesson learned: Corruption is foolish because it gives the left the justification to impose their own corruption (which is worse). Only a party that leads with moral authority instills fear in the opponent and wins victories. When you help the GOPe by covering up its corruption it further impedes our rights to not only free speech, but the benefits of honest leadership, integrity of a political process and the very future of our Republic. We, the voters, take this seriously.

Instead of serving yourself by covering for cowards and sellouts who have done less than nothing for our party, join us in taking on the corruption you have sometimes alluded to in your electoral articles.  It takes guts to be a patriot, and part of that means sacrificing certain privileges and “access” to power. I saw a lot of soft ball questions and weak-knee’d patriots all over the thread. That’s the type of constituents the GOPe wants: easily steered sheeple (maybe, like you).

Priebus-Over-Shoulder-Breitbart

These are just some of the comments you made in the article where a moderator (possibly hired) repeated similar lingo, just to deny voters the chance to express their opinions about fraud in Mississippi’s race and to protect Reince from them.

We invited Reince Priebus, Chairman of the RNC, to the RedState Gathering. Normally at the Gathering, with some exceptions, we ask our speakers to take questions from the crowd. Twice now the Chairman of the RNC has come and taken questions from the crowd.  This year, I insisted on asking the questions in a conversational interview format.

After the interview, a number of attendees expressed their anger to me that they could not ask questions.In fact, one was so deeply hostile that after yelling at me, he stormed from the room, yelled at another attendee, then tried yelling at Reince. At the conclusion of the Gathering, he came up to me and apologized and noted his reaction was proof I had done the right thing.

Here’s what I got: 1) you may have exaggerated the story to justify your actions, or 2) the story of the attendee was also exaggerated to portray these voters as an angry mob that has to be dealt with.  You then wrote:

Secondly… more importantly, during the Gathering we became aware of an organized effort to embarrass the Chairman and otherwise disrupt the event. In fact, when I undercut the effort, one person affiliated with one of our sponsors began loudly playing ringtones from his phone to disrupt the event. Another tried to block the video camera recording the event with a sign.

There is nothing conversational about dismissing people’s rightful anger and right to speak up. You should have expected and managed the situation, but the RNC is making a case for not having open primaries anyway so this is just one more reason to justify it. You protected the same Chairman who cynically used an image of a T.E.A. sign in a survey he wants answered to give the impression he is listening.  Is that not enough to sicken you? Post byReince Priebus.

gop

Mr. Erickson, you could use your writing skills to enlighten voters by letting them know that the RNC Chair is a mouthpiece for the GOPe, and with all due respect, a hired liar who looks innocent so he can deceive..why not? It’s true!

You could also start by admitting to yourself that the RNC Chair could not care less about the people he is asking support or opinions from, and show respect for voters by treating him like someone who is supposed to serve and represent us, not a celebrity with a fragile ego. Given all the mischief going on in the establishment, why are you not helping us fight this war against a machine that is desperately seeking to crush us? It is no secret: the GOPe wants to engage us in Death by Suicide. Why take that side? We need people to hold them to task, not be intimidated by them.  They are cowards, remember? Have I missed anything?

Back to the context which I started with: We (Cuban-Americans who fled Fidel Castro’s communist dictatorship) have been called many names:  angry Anti-Castro mob, Cuban Mafia, etc. It’s not new.  The name calling is a smear tactic to intimidate and coerce into submission. Unlike the GOPe who fears the president and media’s “smears”, a true patriot does not care what names they are called.

In the meantime, no one has the right to cast a negative light on people who have a right to complain about a victory they were robbed of and are now being given the runaround on.  You may not agree, but the GOPe is governing in despotic ways.  It may be in the form of dopey surveys and shutting people out at “gatherings” where they were, again, invited to participate, but it’s a red flag for some of us who have been speaking up for a while. Please explain how people taking the time to attend your Q & A and showing up with signs saying #remembermississippi are in any way a threat to Reince Priebus. We have been treated worse and are happy warriors. So what’s the big deal?

A dozen people, that’s it? You couldn’t handle 12 voters. If there isn’t an awareness on your part that the lack of courage to stand up to our establishment is part of the problem, and that because of that corruption conditions are ripe for a revolution (in Cuba it was from the left), then history will repeat itself.

This is America, though, and revolutions arise for all the right reasons, to protect the People, the Truth, God’s stewardship and Independence from tyranny. The corrupt leaders in our party have been paving the way for a corrupt left to be emboldened and move forward to replace us. It should make you stop and think: you should not take for granted what the Good Lord intended for this country, and how it was envisioned by its founders.

My country never had that unique feature in its Constitution. Yes.  Stop. Think.  And Thank Him for history to unfold a revolution of honor and goodness that will replace the evil one in which the rest of you will have all lost your way.

Sincerely,

 

Isabel Matos
