We lost over 400 sons and most recently we lost Courtney (Crum-Ewing).”Citing the prorogation of parliament as one instance of misuse of presidential power, he called for the curtailing of such prerogatives.“There are some fundamental things we have to do so that we do not backslide again. And one of these is to change the Constitution!”“We must understand what about the Constitution has led us to where we are. Never again must we vest in any head of state the powers of a king or the powers of a queen. Because it is only kings and queens who don’t have to answer to the people. Once we elect a president, he must be liable to us and he must not be a minority president!”“Any President must be a majority president.

They will try to drive wedges between us, because we are facing a desperate regime…a regime that understands that we have only changed Governments once in fifty years. That is our failing as a people.”Hughes also touched on some of the controversial projects undertaken by the administration, “in the name of conservation and economic progress”.“The future of this country does not depend on giving away large tracts of land to people to develop it,Sale NFL Jerseys, when we can develop it ourselves!”“How is it possible that the sons and daughters of slaves and indentured servants can sit down and be told that, while foreign nations are given hundreds of thousands of acres to cut trees,Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic, when we can cut trees?

We have already paid,Cheap NFL Jerseys From China, through our foreparents, for every square inch of this country!”Hughes did not spare himself or his colleagues in the opposition.
