I believe that people are basically good, and it's corporations that must be constrained to be.
I believe that workers deserve rights, and it's employers who must be encouraged to honor these.
I believe that debts are a investment in our future, a way to jump start that Better World.
I believe that paying taxes is our 'patriotic duty' as fiscally-responsible Americans.
I believe the point of Society, is to help people, not to hurt them.
I believe the point of Politics, is to speak up for people, not to speak down to them.
I believe the goals of Democracy should be to empower the people, not to oppress us.
I believe the goals of the Founders was to build a great Nation, not to dismantle one.
I believe The New Deal, Social Security, and Medicare provide us the Dignity we've earned.
I believe that Austerity-Loving, Debt-Fearing, Tax-Hatred deny us that Better World we'd hope to one day leave, for generations to follow us;
as did those generations, before us ...
All those reasons, and so much more I didn't say, should give you some small idea ...
