Great speech. The Harvard crack, setting up around 11:40 was pretty funny.

The constant liberal drip - drip - drip has worn sensible people down. Power hungry politicians did us no favors either. I don't see another RR in our near future. Time for us regular citizens to start speaking up and speaking out.

Being born in '79 the earliest President I was aware of was Bush Sr. And at the time, I didn't comprehend much in the world of politics. It's great to see this speech by Reagan. I only hear anecdotal accounts of the man, but to see him in action is incredible.

I love RR, but I read somewhere that he did sign a gun-control bill in '86(?). Is this true? I was too young during the '80s to pay attention to politics.
