Hubert H. Humphrey Quote: “Here we are the way politics ought to be in America; the politics of happiness, the politics of purpose and the politics of joy.”
Hubert H. Humphrey Quote: “None of us would trade freedom of expression for the narrowness of the public censor. America is a free market for people who have something to say, and need not fear to say it.”
