99 years ago today, one of America‘s greatest Presidents Ronald Reagan was born in Tampico, IL.

Here is a great Reagan quote from 1973.

“There is no question that we have failed to live up to the dreams of the founding fathers many times and in many places. Sometimes we do better than others. But all in all, the one thing we must be on guard against is thinking that because of this, the system has failed. The system has not failed. Some human beings have failed the system.”

One speech many people highlight is President Reagan’s 1964 speech “A Time for Choosing.”

Here’s another “Time to Recapture our Destiny” – the 1980 acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.

Happy Birthday President Reagan!
