Reagan: “We can have peace this second, if we surrender.”

One of the greatest lies of this current generation is that the Cold War has ended.  
It stopped perhaps on one side, the American side, while the Russians went covert- and global.  The Russians have cleverly continued this war and upped the ante.  Communism grows world-wide while Capitalism is on the run.  The cries for "democracy" around the world is a disguised form of tyranny. In truth, we do not want democracy, we want a Democratic Republic in which,  there is a monumental difference that only a few understand.   

Reagan and his generation understood the evil of Communism and that freedom isn't free. To not fight in the name of peace is equal to surrender. 

I pray as we celebrate our Independence from the tyranny of England's King George, we awake to the tyranny that has infiltrated the White House, the Halls of Congress, the classrooms of America the media and more.  
Packaged as freedom and calling itself democracy, there is a veneer of ruthlessness at the core of those who want to foster tyranny upon America. 
The whole world it seems, will come under the crushing weight of this "monolithic and ruthless conspiracy"  without an intervention from on High.

Critical Politics

This is the text of Ronald Reagan’s great speech.

“Let’s set the record straight. There is no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there is only one guaranteed way you can have peace–and you can have it in the next second–surrender.
Admittedly there is a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson in history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face–that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight and surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand–the ultimatum. And what then? When Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has told them that we are retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary because by that time we will have weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. He believes this because from our side he has heard voices pleading for “peace at any price” or “better Red than dead,” or as one commentator put it, he would rather “live on his knees than die on his feet.” And therein lies the road to war, because those voices don’t speak for the rest of us. You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin–just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well, it’s a simple answer after all.
You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” There is a point beyond which they must not advance. This is the meaning in the phrase of Barry Goldwater’s “peace through strength.” Winston Churchill said that “the destiny of man is not measured by material computation. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we are spirits–not animals.” And he said, “There is something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness. “
