"Freedom is not a gift received from the State or leader,
but a possession to be won every day
by the effort of each and the union of all."
Albert Camus

Right on. By "All" I'm assuming all people on earth, not just the US.

    That's why we and the rest of our world so desperately need George W. Bush - the only living leader committed to bringing democracy to all nations. And he will unify all peoples on earth under the banner of the United States! The United Nations can go suck eggs! All the UN has done is to powder its nose, wipe its butt, and line its pockets - with our money!

    GWD, your thoughts on the U.N. are right on target. I do have some doubts about the comments on Bush.

    Not the least of which is that it takes several decades to figure out how it works. The wise eventually die, and newborns arrive daily to figure it out for themselves. One must learn how to be responsible in order to be free. Camus says it better.
