  7. Thanks for an interesting set of quotes! I find myself both agreeing and disagreeing with several of them at the same time. Kudos to you for having the chutzpah to be a bit controversial. (Much like Reagan himself, perhaps?) We need more debate nowadays, and a lot less pandering.

    Feel free to see the latest post on my own blog for more on this, too: http://myflexiblepencil.com/2011/02/08/stop-sucking-up-and-start-helping-out/#

    Thanks again, Chris!

  8. Excellent Reagan quotes, Christian, he’s one of my political heroes.
