"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream-the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path."
Ronald Wilson Reagan - (1911–2004)
Hollywood star, President of the Screen Actors Guild, 33rd Governor of California (1967–1975) and 40th President of the United States (1981–1989)
