"The U.S. can destroy Iraq's highways, but not build its own; create the conditions for epidemic in Iraq, but not offer health care to millions of Americans. It can excoriate Iraqi treatment of the Kurdish minority, but not deal with domestic race relations; create homelessness abroad but not solve it here; keep a half million troops drug free as part of a war, but refuse to fund the treatment of millions of drug addicts at home... We shall lose the war after we have won it." -- Marilyn Young, historian, talking about US government values and priorities


"It is easy to conceive that great evils to our country and its institutions might flow from such concentration of power in the hands of a few (bankers) (who are) irresponsible to the people. Controlling our currency, receiving our public money, and holding thousands of our citizens in dependence...would be more formidable and dangerous than a military power of the enemy..."   ~Andrew Jackson
