Here is the closing statement of Congressman Kucinich at the first presidential debate of the campaign -- May 3, Columbia, South Carolina:
I began my career in public life in 1967. I've been a councilman, a mayor, a state senator and now a congressman. As a candidate for President, I offer a

different vision for America, one which separates me from the other candidates.
I am the only candidate for President who will take this country away from fear and war and tax giveaways, and use America's peace dividend for guaranteed health
care for all, ending health care for profit. I am the only candidate who will stop the privatization of social security and bring the retirement age back to 65.
As President, I will cancel NAFTA and the WTO, restore our manufacturing jobs, save our family farms, create full employment programs, create new jobs by
rebuilding our cities and schools. As President, I will repeal the Patriot Act to regain for all Americans the sacred right of privacy in our homes, our
libraries, our schools.
This is a grassroots campaign to take back America. Join me from your cities, your towns, your farms and your campuses. Join me at Kucinich.US and let's take
back America for the people.
