It's about advancing the cause of peace and justice in our country and in our world. Politics is about doing well for people." Senator Paul Wellstone (D-MN); 1944-2002
"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Robert F. Kennedy, speaking before the largest integrated audience ever assembled in Cape Town, June 6, 1966
"Look, our strategy is to create chaos, to create a vacuum...We will export death and violence to the four corners of the earth in defense of our great nation." President George W Bush, 2002.
