Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Reagan's Budget Director Speaks Out

Here is David Stockman, Ronald Reagan's budget director, telling us how it is. This is an instructive interview for those who worship Ronald Reagan as "Ronaldus Maximus" by going back to the speeches he gave before he actually was president and then acting like that is how  he governed. Now I'm not blaming Reagan for not living out the principles of a small government, as I'm not real sure how much power a president truly has in our country. Anyway, this man Stockman gives us a history lesson in our country's money situation, which is a great reality check without spin and pandering.
