Reagan’s “Time For Choosing”” speech urged courage in defending against the threat of communism. Reagan was a strong believer in American exceptionalism, a notion that has gone by the wayside under the current administration. Consider the current state of affairs with the rise of ISIS and the growing threat of terrorism. Ronald Reagan advocated for “peace through strength” and was a true leader when it came to protecting America from her enemies.
He said, “We want our national policy to be based on what we know in our hearts is morally right.” We need to reestablish President Reagan’s vision for America, and we need to stop leading from behind.
Even 50 years later, the lessons that Ronald Reagan taught us are still so very applicable.
