If you believe that “ government is not the solutions to our problems; government is the problem"

If you believe that “we are a nation that has a government, not the other way around"

If you believe that, “man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is a neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts"

If you believe that, “outside of its legitimate functions, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector of the economy"

If you believe that, “nations crumble from within when the citizenry asks of government those things which the citizenry might better provide for themselves"

If you believe that “the best possible social program is a job"

If you believe that, “the best view of big government is in the rearview mirror as we leave it behind"

If you believe that “God’s greatest gift is human life and that we have a duty to protect the life of an unborn child"

If you believe that “the rights of parents and the rights of the family take precedence over those of Washington-based bureaucrats and social engineers"

If you believe that, “when we speak of peace, we should not mean just the absence of war,"? that, “true peace rest on the pillars of individual freedom, humans, national self-determination, and respect for the rule of law"

If you believe that, “evil still stalks the planet. Its ideology may be nothing more than bloodlust; no program more complex than economic plunder or military aggrandizement. But it is evil all the same. And wherever there are forces that would destroy the human spirit and diminish human potential, they must be recognized, and they must be countered"

If you believe that, “evil is powerless if the good are unafraid"

If you believe that, “we’re too great a nation to limit ourselves to small dreams"

If you believe that “If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under"

If you believe in the above, then you are a Reagan Conservative.

If you read down this list and found that you agree with it, then you are a Reagan Conservative (or a Reaganite). It doesn't matter whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, and something else, everyone who believes in the ideas (and their implementation) listed here is welcome!
