When you hear President Ronald Reagan speaking in 1961 in this video, it is as pertinent today as it was then. It is eerily pertinent. It shows us that nothing changes. It shows us that our freedom will always be under assault and in a country that cherishes freedom, and understands freedom, the assault always comes from the soft assault of socializing our way of life - which can sound so comforting and so right, but in truth, thieves the heart of liberty. Nothing changes. We must be ever vigilant. Americans will be fighting this fight when the end of time is upon us.
