To hear these speeches in his own voice and with preceeding comments by President Reagan truly exhibits his foresight for this country. Almost all of his speeches still ring true today as we once again face massive government spending and increased unemployment and inflation. Many speeches brought tears to my eyes..one was his yearly Christmas fireside chat to all Americans.. the one about the vietnamese refugees adrift on a small boat being rescued by American sailors. I beleive all parents have a duty to introduce President Reagan to their children so that they may know the making of a strong President. Using common sense as the backbone of all his decisions, Reagan lead us out of Jimmy Carter's economy nightmare. The world respected him and the day he took office, the hostage that were held for over 400 days under Carters watch, were released. The terrorists knew he was not one to mess with. His voice is soothing like listening to your wise grandpa. Love you, miss you Mr President.
