Look upon Rea­gan’s ex­am­ple

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

FROM: BAI­LEY BROOKS WAR­WICK

Re­gard­less of party af­fil­i­a­tion, we can all agree that Ron­ald Rea­gan was a leader. He spoke in a way that em­pow­ered the Amer­i­can peo­ple. When Rea­gan spoke, he spoke of the power that lies within every in­di­vid­ual to en­act change and to pro­mote the com­mon good. His great­est com­fort was a uni­fied Amer­ica and his great­est fear was a con­trol­ling gov­ern­ment.

When we re­view the lead­er­ship of Rea­gan, we can ob­serve one com­mon theme: his be­lief in the great­ness of Amer­ica and the strength that in­her­ently lies in each of its cit­i­zens. Rea­gan said it best when he said, “The great­est leader is not nec­es­sar­ily the one who does the great­est things. He is the one that gets the peo­ple to do the great­est things.”

Ini­tially, many deemed Rea­gan un­fit and un­qual­i­fied for the job. Thank­fully, Amer­ica gave him the one thing we all want in life: a chance. Ron­ald Rea­gan was no or­di­nary politi­cian, his lead­er­ship led to a more pros­per­ous Amer­ica.

We have two op­tions this elec­tion sea­son. One op­tion will con­tinue to lead to re­stricted free­doms, less sta­bil­ity and a less fi­nan­cially se­cure Amer­ica. I hope you vote for a leader, not an es­tab­lish­ment politi­cian that will fur­ther the poli­cies that have failed Amer­i­cans. I hope you vote for the po­lit­i­cal out­sider and are not swayed by a me­dia that wants to leave us dis­en­fran­chised.

We need a leader equipped to deal with the lu­di­crous prob­lems that plague Amer­ica to­day, not one who will con­tinue them.
