``I have one great political idea… That idea is an old one. It Is widely and generally found in the Bible. It is in substance, “Righteousness exalteth a nation; sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). This constitutes my politics… the negative and positive of my politics, and the whole of my politics.`` - Frederick Douglass
