Jimmy Carter Quote

“America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense, it is the other way around. Human rights invented America.”

~ Jimmy Carter

Robert, Sarasota

But it's tough going...

Anonymous, Reston, VA US

Now we must stand behind those forces which invented us and defend them... and we don't do that by war and hate, but by kindness and love and acceptance of differences.

Robert, Sarasota

Bravo Reston

Bob, Eugene OR

Good on'ya Jimmy! Even a broken watch is right twice a day!

E Archer, NYC

Beware the redefining of 'human rights' into money from the government.

Ken, Allyn, WA

Yes, even Commie Carter can mouth beautiful and correct sentiments, even though he has a perverted definition of human rights.

David L Rosenthal

Reston and Robert: When the forces now being prepared to attack your nation, forces determined to destroy America and its democratic allies, start bombing your house, will we see you on your knees praying for peace, or promoting kindness and understanding, rather than shouting for their blood? War is terrible, and extremely terrible is to struggle for survival under a totalitarian regime. One third of the world is enslaved by totalitarianism. Are you next? ..........Human rights invented America, but so did greed, apathy, lust, hypocrisy, and hate.

    Rosenthal, I won't speak for Reston and Robert, but I will never shout for another person's blood.
