We are led, by events and common sense, to one conclusion: The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands. The best hope for peace in our world is the expansion of freedom in all the world.
This is a declaration that our national interests, as manifested in our enduring valuation of freedom, can and must co-exist with the popular aspirations of the oppressed elsewhere. Perhaps this is a step toward the recognition that we are our brothers' keepers.
Cheers and best wishes for the next 4 years.
