Don’t get cynical because look at yourselves and what you were willing to do, and recognize that there are millions and millions of Americans out there that want what you want, that want it to be that way, that want it to be a shining city on a hill.
Ronald Reagan, addressing his campaign staff the day after a narrow loss to President Gerald Ford for the Republican Party nomination in 1976.
