to the editor from this week's Chronicle:
To the Editor:
Who said this, “I don’t believe in a government that protects us from
our selves.” The answer is: Ronald Reagan. He realized
that the federal government should not grasp all power. He tried
to plush power back down to the states and the local governments, but more
importantly, he worked to push power away from the government. One
of his greatest campaign slogans was “Get government off the backs of the
people and out of their pocket books as well.”
He made us proud to be Americans. He showed us it was ok to be strong.
On Saturday March 5th there will be a Lincoln Day and Ronald Reagan
Centennial Celebration Dinner; it begins at 6:00 p.m. It will be held at
the Cottonwood Community Hall. Tickets may be purchased at the door.
We will honor Ronald Reagan and also hear from seven elected Republicans;
these include the Commissioners, serving Idaho County, and all three District
8 representatives in the State Legislature. It is also hoped that
newly elected Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador will be present. These Idahoans
will bring us up to speed on the county, state and US Congress.
