FROM HIS 1978 ADDRESS TO THE CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL ACTION CONFERENCE ON "AMERICA'S PURPOSE IN THE WORLD"
RONALD REAGAN. Typed Quotation signed: "Ronald Reagan", 1p. 8½x11. In full: "If we are not to shoulder the burdens of leadership in the free world, then who will?" Noted to be: "Speech, Conservative Political Action Conference, March 17, 1978". This quote, from towards the end of his speech, is from Reagan's address to the 5th Annual Conservative Political Action Conference. The former California Governor said, in part: "Leadership is a great burden. We grow weary of it at times. And the Carter administration, despite its own cheerful propaganda about accomplishments, reflects that weariness. But if we are not to shoulder the burdens of leadership in the free world, then who will? The alternatives are neither pleasant nor acceptable. Great nations which fail to meet their responsibilities are consigned to the dust bin of history. We grew from that small, weak republic which had as its assets spirit, optimism, faith in God and an unshakeable belief that free men and women could govern themselves wisely. We became the leader of the free world, an example for all those who cherish freedom…." In 1980, Reagan defeated President Carter in a landslide. Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) had two careers: actor and politician. His first movie was Love is on the Air (1937) and his 53rd and last film was The Killers (1964). In 1965, he wrote his autobiography, Where's the Rest of Me?, a line from his role as Drake McHugh in King's Row (1942). Reagan left his job hosting television's Death Valley Days during the 1965-1966 season, when he entered politics. Elected Governor of California in 1966, he was reelected in 1970. Reagan began his campaign for the presidency and narrowly lost the 1976 Republican nomination to Gerald Ford. He was elected President in 1980 and was reelected in 1984. After leaving office in 1989, he wrote his second autobiography, An American Life. On February 6, 2001, Reagan became just the third U.S. President to reach the age of 90 and the nation's longest living President until Gerald Ford (d. 2006) lived 45 days longer. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
