"Since ancient times there had been many revolutions, after all; new nations had broken away from old empires before. What makes America’s founding extraordinary, observed the 30th president, is that it was the first to be based not on blood or soil but on a set of philosophical ideas about 'the nature of mankind and therefore of government.' ... America, uniquely, was dedicated to a proposition -- to the fundamental, self-evident truth 'that all men are created equal' and the political ideas that flow from that truth." [editor's note: well worth remembering as the USA Inc empire continues to metastasize under our very noses - SAT] (07/03/11)
