      Quote 1495by Anonymous on 13/01/2011

      Our industries have expanded to such a point that they will burst their jackets if they cannot find a free outlet to the markets of the world. Our domestic markets no longer suffice. We need foreign markets.

                  Some Americans need hyphens in their names, because only part of them has come over; but when the whole man has come over, heart and thought and all, the hyphen drops of its own weight out of his name.

                          Just what is it that America stands for? If she stands for one thing more than another it is for the sovereignty of self-governing people.

                                    There is such a thing as a man being too proud to fight; there is such a thing as a nation being so right that it does not need to convince others by force that it is right.

                                      The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy.

                                        There can be no equality or opportunity if men and women and children be not shielded in their lives from the consequences of great industrial and social processes which they cannot alter, control, or singly cope with.

                                          The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty.

                                            No man can sit down and withhold his hands from the warfare against wrong and get peace from his acquiescence.
