Ronald Reagan's

11th Commandment

New DCRP Blog Posting

On Monday, February 6th we celebrated the 112th birthday of Ronald Wilson Reagan, the 40th president of the United States from 1981 to 1989. More than just a nostalgic look back to a dearly loved Republican and father of the modern conservative movement, now is a great time to reconsider one of his famous speeches.


In today’s blog, I want to replay the text of the last half of his addresses because it is so appropriate for today as we build to 2024.


Ronny was a famous Party builder. He had to be because the Republican Party was the minority at the time both nationally as well as in his home state of California.


Concurrently, the Republican Party was in disarray, and despite his recently winning the Governorship for the GOP, splintering into "armed camps". In his speech, he said, "we could no longer afford the luxury of internal fighting, backbiting and throat-cutting."


They had to unite.
