Well if the government is going to build the schools, and buy the books, issue scholarships, make judgements, and exert pressure... What if one day that pressure is of a political nature not to our liking? Education is the bow work of freedom. But you remove it too far from the community and the parents control and education becomes the tool of tyranny. - Ronald Reagan

To all republicans today entrusted with this responsibility because it is ours i say look deep in your own hearts and ask yourself if you possibly can have any difference with any other Republican that is more important than this challenge that faces us tonight. If you are unwilling to meet this challenge then you better start preparing deciding what you will tell your children what you found that was more important than freedom. They will want to know.- Ronald Reagan
