Quote of the Decade
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit
is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot
pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial
assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless
fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and
internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead,
Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs
of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a
failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."  Debt is about $ 8 Trillion dollars 
 ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006


“To build a better, freer world, we must first behave in ways that reflect the
decency and aspirations of the American people…. This means ending the practices
of shipping away prisoners in the dead of night to be tortured in far-off countries,
of detaining thousands without charge or trial, of maintaining a network of secret
 prisons to jail people beyond the reach of the law.”
Senator Obama - 2007 on the War on Terror
The decision regarding who will be killed by Drones will be made by “an informed,
high-level official of the U.S. government.”
President Obama 2013


"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.

You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should

 do for themselves."

Abraham Lincoln
