Priority Campaign Issue Is President Bush’s Insanity  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Speaking to a Washington audience on Oct. 6, in a webcast conference sponsored by LaRouche PAC, Lyndon H.

That’s why this PAC exists.”

And by system, I don’t just mean certain contractual agreements, but actually the entire basis of ideas, the entire thought structure, the agreements, the institutions, the arrangements, formal or informal, that have governed the world over recent decades, and in a sense, since 1763.”
