Ronald Reagan – A Time for Choosing

A Time for Choosing, also known as The Speech, was a speech presented during the 1964 U.S. presidential election campaign by future president Ronald Reagan on behalf of Republican candidate Barry Goldwater.

Contrary to popular belief, however, the speech was not given at the 1964 Republican National Convention in San Francisco, California as a nomination speech for Barry Goldwater. Richard Nixon gave that nomination speech. Reagan, though he campaigned for Goldwater, did not use „A Time for Choosing” until October 27, 1964, when it was part of a pre-recorded television program, Rendezvous with Destiny. In his autobiography Reagan recalled going to bed that night „hoping I hadn’t let Barry down.”

Speaking for Goldwater, Reagan stressed his belief in the importance of smaller government. In this speech, he revealed his ideological motivation: „The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing.” He also said, „You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.” The speech raised $1 million for Goldwater’s campaign and is considered the event that launched Reagan’s political career.

    Dupa ce a achizitionat 40 de palmieri pentru care a platit 10.000 de euro, primarul Timisoarei, Nicolae Robu, a pus 18 politisti locali (in trei schimburi, cate sase pe tura) sa pazeasca arborii exotici zi si noapte, scrie

      Bleen , click eu repede, curioasă să văd şi eu unde-mi sunt banii (ar fi o descoperire istorică). Şi văd poza unei poze cu Crin. E o chestie metatextuală? Banii sunt la Crin-Fenechiu sau în poza lor, adică în articolul de scandalizat doamne fine, transalpine (pt rimă, dar parcă transatlantice), cu pipi? Mă rog, I want my money back.

    A corrupt character, placed in the right position, can actually be a benefit (of sorts) to a country. As Governor, these characters gain extra tax revenue, part of which they pass on to the government in the form of higher Tax revenue from that province, and part of which they keep for themselves. However, a corrupt governor will also upset the populace in a province, increasing Revolt Risk, and making a revolt more likely. Corruption also reduces a province’s Manpower and Research Points. Corrupt Governors are also more likely to accept Seduction attempts from other countries. They also may be more likely to use ill-gotten Wealth to increase their own Popularity, potentially becoming a Rival and threat to the Ruler, and perhaps eventually leading a Revolt Faction against them in a Civil War.
