Ronald Reagan, 1977 Address to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) (February 6, 1977):

“The American new conservative majority we represent is not based on abstract theorizing of the kind that turns off the American people, but on common sense, intelligence, reason, hard work, faith in God, and the guts to say: ‘Yes, there are things we do strongly believe in, that we are willing to live for, and yes, if necessary, to die for.’ That is not ‘ideological purity.’ It is simply what built this country and kept it great.”
