The advance of freedom is the calling of our time; it is the calling of our country. From the Fourteen Points to the Four Freedoms, to the Speech at Westminster, America has put our power at the service of principle.

And we believe that freedom the freedom we prize is not for us alone, it is the right and the capacity of all mankind.

George Walker Bush
