Rendezvous with Destiny

Rendezvous with Destiny
My Beginning in Becoming a Conservative Woman

February 6, 2011 marks the 100th birthday of the Greatest President in my lifetime.  Actually, a great man.  Ronald Wilson Reagan is a man to be admired.  He was a man of character.  A man who loved God, a devoted husband that loved his wife and family. A man who loved and served his country with respect and honor.

Although I was only 4 years old when he took office on January 20, 1981, I had a great admiration for him.  I remember when I was a little girl riding in my grandfather’s
Cadillac.  He had a sunroof and I would always ask him to open it up and I would stand up and wave to the passing cars….just like President Reagan.
Admiring Reagan, even at a young age, was the start of my love of conservatism.  I grew up in a very Republican family, but when I was old enough to know and make decisions for myself, I registered myself as a Republican (the happiest day of my father’s life, he once told me…haha).
I believe, as President Reagan, in what was known as “Reaganomics“: widespread tax cuts, increase national defense, decrease social spending and deregulation of domestic markets.
The Reagan years saw a restoration of prosperity.  May we find these years once again.
In closing, I’ll never forget standing at his grave site, tears welling up in my eyes as I read: “I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there’s purpose and worth to each and every life.”
I thank God for blessing us, our great nation, with a leader with such great character and integrity.
Reagan is an inspiration to me and a role model for all.

Happy 100th Birthday Mr. President!!

    Thank you for your lovely message! I was alot older when Reagan became our president, and I can tell you that at no time in my life, have I ever been more proud of my president . I really believe that our country was better because of him. Thanks again, you’ve restored alot of my faith in the younger generation.
