“Imagine what it’s like to be a young person living in a country that is not moving toward reform.” – George W. Bush, speaking before the UN General Assembly, September 19, 2006
“This sounds like a land in serious trouble. Could it be someplace where ten per cent of the population controls over fifty per cent of the country’s wealth? Could it be a land where health care insurance costs so much that 46 million, or more, go without and the elderly have no hope but to curl up and die? Could it be a place where the workers and middle class must work longer hours in order to earn diminishing wages? Could it be a place where plans for a comfortable retirement are a hopeless dream? That would be a country in need of reform.” – Tom Chartier
