The American Dream Quote of the Day

Tom Clancy

Best-Selling Author

The basic strength of any society, in military terms, stems from a country's economy. The better the economy, the more things get turned out and better are the things it can turn out. The strength of an economy comes from the individual minds of the citizens of that country. What we have demonstrated in the last 200 years in America is, if you maximize the freedom for each individual mind -- you maximize the choices a person can make, you maximize the reward a person gets for coming up and implementing a good idea -- the stronger the economy becomes. The whole thing begins with a free individual making a free choice to live his or her life in whichever way the person chooses to live it. Everything else grows out of that.
