On the 25th Anniversary of the Reagan Revolution

WASHINGTON- Twenty-five years ago today, Americans and lovers of freedom across the world won a major victory. On November 3, 1980, Ronald Reagan defeated Jimmy Carter by an overwhelming 2-1 margin.

A man born in a small Midwest town of humble background, Ronald Reagan worked with Republicans and Democrats to enact a bold agenda that restored accountability and common sense to government. His economic policies of tax cuts, deregulation and choice for the American taxpayer led to an unprecedented economic expansion.

“With the passing of the 40th President this year, we must take care to preserve Ronald Reagan’s legacy for generations to come,” said Grover Norquist, president of the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project. “Reagan stood as a leader for our nation and the world during one of the most dangerous times in history. The struggles and achievements of his presidency have forever changed our world.”

In the 25 years since Reagan won the presidential election, his dedication and pride in America lives on. He took a nation in economic and international decline and reversed the course of history. With his tax relief and defeat of the Soviet Empire, Ronald Reagan bestowed pride upon Americans and freedom upon the world.

“Now, more than ever, it is important to reflect on the late President’s impact on the world as we know it,” said Norquist. “Millions of world-citizens are living in freedom and prosperity thanks to his leadership and principles. His legacy will continue to grow over the next 25 years as we preserve the pride he restored in America.”

Friday was a huge success!

Christopher D. Butler, Executive Director of RRLP, was interviewed several times today over Ronald Reagan Blvd in Washington, DC. It is truly amazing that the liberals are getting this fired up over the proposal. This only electrifies the grassroots! I mean c'mon! If the liberals had just let this proposal go quietly, we wouldn't be having this discussion! Instead we are now actually debating this excellent piece of legislation! Congressman Bonilla deserves a congratulations for this move.

However, the decision by DC Vote Project to plaster the point person from the Congressman's office is just wrong. So I ask every interested person to place contact DC and express your displeasure with their decision. I'd Advise you contact both Ilir Zherka, Executive Director, at or 462-6896 and also Kevin Kiger, the Communications Director at 202-487-7470. They need to be told this isn't a voting issue but rather a fine attempt at honoring a great American. I won't bother to discuss this issue much further tonight but we will take this issue up on Monday.

Congressman Bonilla (R-Texas) Supports Reagan's Legacy!

He recently introduced legislation that will surely upset the left but truly honors our 40th President. The bill would rename 16th NW, Ronald Reagan Blvd. This redesignation only seems appropriate to a Reagan conservative because by any standard Reagan was one of the greatest Americans and fittingly deserves a street leading up to the White House. There is strong symbolism behind this dedication. It is significant because it makes presidential hopefuls aware that Reagan is the President you want to follow if you wish to lead this great country.

Urge your members of Congress to co-sponsor this bill now! We need your support to give this bill some momentum!

Exciting news in the world of Ronald Reagan!

Recently, Rep. Lothian of the Wisconsin legislature proposed new legislation memorializing Ronald Reagan and Harriet Tubman. This is an important time for Wisconsinites to be vocal! We need your support to make sure that Gov. Doyle doesn't feel its appropriate to veto another bill honoring Ronald Reagan. Here is the link for the Wisconsin legislature so you can contact your local representative! These are two great American heroes. Harriet Tubman's courageous acts saved hundreds of slaves. Ronald Reagan freed millions from the horros of Communism. These people deserve fitting dedications.

On another front- Congressman Bonilla of Texas introduced legislation renaming 16th street in NW Ronald Reagan Blvd! This legislation will definitely aggravate some liberals! 16th street contains the AFL-CIO, the Democratic National Committee and all sorts of embassies. This would be such an honor for all involved! (At least we at the RRLP think so!) Contact your congress member and push for them to cosponsor this bill. If you don't know who your congress member is than look it up on That should provide you with everything you need.

Last but not least. Utah becomes the 24th state to honor President Reagan. This September, the Reagan Academy will open up for the first time to students! Good job everyone in Utah.

I'll leave you with a quote today because I came across a good one.
"America has already succeeded where so many other historic attempts at freedom have failed. Already, we've made this cherished land the last best hope of mankind. It's up to us, in our generation, to carry on the hallowed task." Think about it. Feel free to comment!

Update on a few Reagan Memorials-

Wisconsin is trying to right the wrong that occurred when Governor Doyle decided to exercise his veto "privilege" on a memorial for the "Gipper." Its interesting that like the previous press releases mention. Ronald Reagan continues to receive more support than Doyle could ever imagine in his own state. Ronald Reagan is truly an American hero who contributed to the restoration of an American identity. Reagan communicated optimism and a sense of worth to a nation severely depressed by a hobbling economy and a deteriorating moral fiber. So can someone please explain to Gov. Doyle that politics isn't something you play with American heroes?

On another front, California is looking to place a statue of Reagan in the US Capitol. It's in the beginning stages but is something to be really excited about! It would be a significant statement for Republicans in California if this resolution is finalized. Can you imagine the image that sends the rest of the nation if California, considered a guaranteed Blue state, sends a monument of Reagan to the US Capitol?

Please contact us or the states to show your support!

We will use this blog to update everyone on such important tasks as what governor has vetoed a recent Reagan memorial dedication and other various activities.

We hope to hear useful feedback from the comments and look forward to discussion of Reagan's legacy!

Reagan Quote-
"If you will forgive me, you know someone has likened government to a baby. It is an alimentary canal with an appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other."
