An Analysis of “A Time For Choosing”

Reagan kept his audience eager for more. She got the idea from two women in her neighborhood who'd already done that very thing. Since 1955, the cost of this program has nearly doubled. Reagan is able to effectively communicate to the American people that the nation is in dire financial straits. Democrat himself, Al Smith, the great American, came before the American people and charged that the leadership of his party was taking the part of Jefferson, Jackson, and Cleveland down the road under the banners of Marx, Lenin, and Stalin. There is only an up or down.

We can send them to Harvard for 2,700! This is the last stand on earth. While explaining these possibilities, Regan uses an obvious tone of voice to criticize and attach all of the negative aspects he explains to his opponent. Reagan believes that the country is headed in the wrong direction and that America has several challenges at home and abroad. But we can not have such reform while our tax policy is engineered by people who view the tax as a means of achieving changes in our social structure. And this added to their present income should eliminate poverty. And they know when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. Where previous accounts of conservatism's rise tend to speed from 1964 through the start of the Reagan era in 1980, A Time for Choosing explores in dramatic detail how conservatives took immediate action following the Goldwater debacle.

Speeches of Ronald Reagan

Soon afterwards, Reagan was asked to run for ; he ran for office and won election in 1966. While explaining these possibilities, Regan uses an obvious tone of voice to criticize and attach all of the negative aspects he explains to his opponent. They can impose a fine without a formal hearing, let alone a trial by jury, and they can seize and sell his property in auction to enforce the payment of that fine. There is no fund, because Robert Byers, the actuarial head, appeared before a congressional committee and admitted that Social Security as of this moment is 298 billion dollars in the hole. It seems impossible to legitimately debate their solutions with the assumption that all of us share the desire to help the less fortunate. What is the proper role of government in promoting progress in America, according to Reagan? I had someplace to escape to.

A time for choosing : the speeches of Ronald Reagan, 1961

But they've been a little more explicit in the past and among themselves; and all of the things I now will quote have appeared in print. I make no apology for this. And how did mainstream and extremist conservatives, frequently at odds over tactics and ideology, each play a role in reshaping the Republican Party? Ronald Reagan was a wonderful person to have given this speech due to his celebrity status, his knowledge of both sides of the political spectrum, and his ability to use different rhetorical appeals to speak to his audience. . In the last six years, 52 nations have bought 7 billion dollars worth of our gold, and all 52 are receiving foreign aid from this country. And what then -- when Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has faith that you and I have the ability and the dignity and the right to make our own decisions and determine our own destiny.

American Rhetoric: Ronald Reagan

a time for choosing

Meanwhile, back in the city, under urban renewal the assault on freedom carries on. It seems impossible to legitimately debate their solutions with the assumption that all of us share the desire to help the less fortunate. By reeling his audience in with a simple logical argument, and then promoting Barry Goldwater as a solution in a common sense manner, he makes it seem as if he is the obvious choice. Every responsible farmer and farm organization has repeatedly asked the government to free the farm economy, but how -- who are farmers to know what's best for them? His discussion on various figures, especially Ronald Reagan, is somehow opinionated. These are not Republican accusations. He does this to paint his democratic opponents in a way that suggests a propensity of weakness. The future can often seem uncertain and frightening to some.

Ronald Reagan's Time Choosing Speech, Oct 27 1964

a time for choosing

There can be no real peace while one American is dying some place in the world for the rest of us. Goldwater was brash and brutally honest, but he came off as extreme and even scary. They also knew, those Founding Fathers, that outside of its legitimate functions, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector of the economy. This is the youth feature. A solid book but certainly not the best. Reagan tells us that there are ways around this and that these issues are not individual but collective. He should do his homework a little better, because he will find out that we have had a decline of 5 million in the farm population under these government programs.

In contrast, Reagan could articulate conservative positions in a non-threatening, even avuncular manner that made people listen and agree. The writing style of this work is bland and sometimes hard to follow. It would seem that someplace there must be some overhead. But I was still nervous about it and, when I went to bed, I was hoping I hadn't let Barry down. Well it's a simple answer after all.

Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Every businessman has his own tale of harassment. We haven't balanced our budget 28 out of the last 34 years. We'll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we'll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness. Another interesting factor to note is that he is trying to build a well perceived character on behalf of another person. Every responsible farmer and farm organization has repeatedly asked the government to free the farm economy, but who are farmers to know what is best for them? He has faith that you and I have the ability and the dignity and the right to make our own decisions and determine our own destiny.

We set out to help 19 countries. Reagan points out that war isn't distant or impersonal, but rather it is something that has lasting effects in which the memory of those who fought and died are honored. He also exposes how the seediness and greediness of the government is leaking into the minds of other fellow Americans. But seriously, what are we doing to those we seek to help? He put in health and medical insurance for all his employees. He told me of a young woman who had come before him for a divorce. Humor would become a cornerstone of his oratory style known as the Reagan wit. Where, then, is the road to peace? If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to.
