Oh No, I agree with a Democrat

In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.

The first is freedom of speech and expression -- everywhere in the world.

The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way -- everywhere in the world.

The third is freedom from want -- which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants -- everywhere in the world.  *

The fourth is freedom from fear -- which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor-- anywhere in the world.  **


* If there is a point where I mildly disagree it is here.  I think the desire for more is fuel for people to do better and the thing that drives us all to do better.  I do think there needs to be a floor but not from want. 

** Countries should have enough to defend themselves but not so much they want to rush out and attack others.

Well, you didn't think I would agree with everything Did You?
