Let us consider the fundamental guiding principles for the United States of America -- freedom, equal opportunity,compassion, and security.  

 

   Then let us consider how those principles have been severely undermined, and how we, the American people, can restore them so that once again our government is of, by, and for the people, rather than a tool of oppression cynically utilized for the benefit of a small, powerful, abusive, elite political and financial class, to the detriment of the vast majority of U.S. citizens, as well as billions of people around the world.

 

   We often hear it said that the United States is the greatest nation in the world.  What exactly is meant by that?  And is it true?  The more important question is: Can we, the American people, make this, once again, a great and proud nation -- a nation that lives up to its original promise?  We can achieve that -- if only we will.
