🏛Human dignity = source of national #purpose

🗽Human liberty = source of national action

❤️ Human heart = source of national #compassion

“This is not so much a party creed, or a set of fixed platform promises, as it is an attitude of mind and heart—a faith in man's ability through the experiences of his reason and judgment to increase for himself and his fellow man, the amount of justice and freedom and brotherhood which all human life deserves.”
