“When It Shall Be Said In Any Country In The World…”

“…My Poor Are Happy… Neither Ignorance Nor Distress Is To Be Found Among Them… My Jails Are Empty Of Prisoners… My Streets Of Beggars… The Aged Are Not In Want… The Taxes Are Not Oppressive… The Rational World Is My Friend, Because I Am The Friend Of Its Happiness. When These Things Can Be Said, Then May That Country Boast Its Constitution And It’s Government.”

THOMAS PAINE

  1. You know where the poor are happy? Whoville. Seriously, take away their Christmas presents and they’ll still be out there holding hands and singing their fruity little song.
