Hound: Idiot, I'm not speaking as a constituent! I'm speaking as a PURCHASER!
Man: Mr. Hound, corporate profits are healthy, but alarming unemployment is persistent. 
Man: Tax cuts for the rich and expensive wars of choice have put the U.S. on the verge of DEFAULT!
Man: Sir, you're crying. 
Hound: Gentlemen, let me tell you a little story...
When I was a lad, I was taken to the tiny nation of Thirdworldenia. 
Father: Son, in this country, all wealth and power reside in a permanent aristocracy. 
Father: A middle class, education, infrastructure, social safety nets, science...all practically NONEXISTENT!
Father: Therefore, there is no class mobility! 
Hound: Papa, it's a UTOPIA! 
Why can't the U.S.A. be like this?! 
Father: Son, it CAN be! It will be up to YOU!
Hound: Stay the course, men! Papa, we're almost there. 
The End.
