Bush speech: "Successful societies limit the power of the state and the power of the military -- so that governments respond to the will of the people, and not the will of an elite... Successful societies protect freedom with the consistent and impartial rule of law, instead of selectively applying the law to punish political opponents... Successful societies allow room for healthy civic institutions -- for political parties and labor unions and independent newspapers and broadcast media... They prohibit and punish official corruption, and invest in the health and education of their people."
