Palin Channels Reagan – The Plank

Palin’s final quote was from Ronald Reagan, warning that without vigilance, “you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children, and our children’s children, what it once was like in America when men were free.”

In fact, Reagan was not warning about a general lack of vigilance about freedom, he was warning what would happen if Medicare was enacted.

Ah yes, the totalitaritarian menace known as Medicare, a greater danger to American freedom than Nazis and Communists combined!  (/snark)

When you come to think of it though, this is Republicanism at its epitome:  Anything that helps large numbers of people in need is a threat to the “freedom” of wealthy, powerful men to keep and endlessly increase their money and power.
