He has marked the American people as His chosen nation to finally lead in the regeneration of the world. This is the divine mission of America ... The Philippines are ours forever. We will not repudiate our duty in the archipelago. We will not abandon our opportunity in the Orient. We will not renounce our part in the mission of our race, trustee, under God, of the civilization of the world.
It is a noble land that God has given us: a land that can feed and clothe the world; a land whose coastlines would enclose half the countries of Europe; a land set like a sentinel between the two imperial oceans of the globe.
He has made us the master organizers of the world . . . to overwhelm the forces of reaction throught the earth . . . . This is the divine mission of America . . . . We are trustees of the world's progress, guardians of its righteous peace. [Progressive]
