20 Years After The Berlin Wall Fell

Remembering Reagan: A Man of Conviction

Isn’t it a damn’ shame that we don’t have a President with the conviction and certainty of Reagan in the White House today?

Here we are, 20 years removed from the night the Berlin Wall fell and America won the cold war decidedly and where was the current President?  No where to be found.  Not a single mention of how America, the lone remaining super-power in the world won the cold war, freeing millions of people from tyranny.

I remember the night the wall fell and East Germany and West Germany were re-united, it was a historic night which filled tape after tape on my VCR as the night unfolded.

I also remember Reagan’s speech at the Brandenburg gate, not 2 years prior to the wall falling.  As someone who cast his first Presidential vote for Reagan and campaigned for him again in 1984, I couldn’t help but always feel a sense of pride in my country whenever Reagan spoke.  He always spoke about the best of America.

Compare and contrast Reagan to Obama.

There is simply no comparison between Ronald Reagan and the publicity seeking, power hungry, America hating buffoon who now occupies the White House.

On the 20th Anniversary of the Berlin Wall coming down, we bring you President Ronald Reagan’s address at the Brandenburg Gate, June 12th, 1987.

11:40: “General Secretary Gorbechev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate.  Mr. Gorbechev, open this gate.  Mr. Gorbechev, tear down this wall.”
