Truth is transparency.

No democracy without transparency.

Democracy without transparency is dictatorship in disguise.

Subversion of the people is the greatest treason.

Who alone stands up to a government deserves the highest honor.

The government that wields its weapons against its people, yields implosion of the nation.

Truth cannot be silenced, only construed.

Who has something to hide, has something to reveal.

A smile is a heart worn outside; a frown is a heart worn out.

Where is knowledge gained, is responsibility assumed.

Politics is a balloon upon which promises are written and inflated.

We need tolerance most precisely when we don’t have it.

A walk away from birth, a walk towards death.

The exotic only exists to those who have not exited.
