"There are two (2) nations in the world who have -NOT- signed the UN declaration of children's rights.
Somalia and the US of A. "
I'm not quite certain how this disputes my claim that the US is the leader of the free world. But you have to forgive me, I do not know the mechanics of this UN declaration.
I do know that the US does not condone or partake in child slave labor (which is probably untrue for some of the signees of this declaration, i.e. if Russia signed it).
As far as breathing clean air, I do agree this is something the US needs to work on. However, I'm not sure the impact this has on freedom or democracy...people are free to live wherever they want, I prefer not near refineries.
